To do my duty in that state of life unto which it shall please God to call me
-Book of common prayer
It is thy duty oftentimes to do what thou wouldst not,
thy duty,too,leave undone that thou wouldst do
Thomas A Kempis
So nigh is grandeur to our dust,
So near is God to man
When duty whispers low,
The youth replies,I can
No personal consideration should stand in the way of performing a public duty.
-Ulysses S Grant
Let us have faith that right makes might,and in that faith let us,to the end,dare to do our duty as we understand it.
England expects every man to do his duty.
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die.
-Tennyson,The Charge of Life Brigade
Not once or twice in our rough island story,
The path of duty was the way to glory
-Tennyson,Ode on the Death of the Duke of Wellington
