The best portion of a good man’s life is his little, nameless, unremembered acts of kindness and of love.
There is no real teacher who in practice does not believe in the existence of the soul, or in a magic that acts on it through speech.
We tend to think that people are more to blame for their acts than for their omissions.
A little knowledge that acts is worth infinitely more than much knowledge that is idle.
We cannot therefore say that mental acts contain a cognitive as well as a conative element.
The single despot stands out in the face of all men, and says: I am the State: My will is law: I am your master: I take the responsibility of my acts: The only arbiter I acknowledge is the sword: If any one denies my right, let him try conclusions with me.

We don’t thrive on military acts. We do them because we have to, and thank God we are efficient.
You should not consider a man’s age but his acts.
