Man's Duty

I think a man's duty is to find out where the truth is, or if he cannot, at least to take the best possible human doctrine and the hardest to disprove, and to ride on this like a raft over the waters of life.

Duty is the most sublime word in our language. Do your duty in all things. You cannot do more. You should never wish to do less.
~Robert E. Lee~

Duty is ours; results are God's.
~John Quincy Adams~

The first duty of society is to give each of its members the possibility of fulfilling his destiny. When it becomes incapable of performing this duty it must be transformed.
~Alexis Carrel~

Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will be in our troubled world.
~Etty Hilsum~

The one predominant duty is to find one's work and do it.
~Charlotte Perkins Gilman~

Our blunders mostly come from letting our wishes interpret our duties.
~Alexander MacLaren~
