England expects every man to do his duty.  Lord Nelson, 1805 

 

 

There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy.  Robert Louis Stevenson, Virginibus Puerisque, 1881

And do thy duty, even if it be humble, rather than another’s even if it be great.  To die in one’s duty is life: to live in another’s is death.  ibid.

From an early age, I had imbibed the opinion, that it was every man’s duty to do all that lay in his power to leave his country as good as he had found it.  William Cobbett, 1762-1835

 

 

Do your duty, and leave the outcome to the gods.  Pierre Corneille, Horace, 1640

 

 

When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty. George Bernard Shaw, Caesar and Cleopatra, 1901  

 

 

At duty, more than I could frame employment,

That numberless upon me stuck, as leaves

Do on the oak, have with one winter’s brush

Fell from their boughs, and left me open, bare

For every storm that blows.  William Shakespeare, Timon of Athens IV iii @263, Timon

 

 

I do perceive here a divided duty.  William Shakespeare, Othello I iii 181

 

Have you forgot all place of sense and duty?  ibid.  II iii 160, Iago

 

 

Think’st thou that duty shall have dread to speak

When power to flattery bows?  To plainness honour’s bound

When majesty stoops to folly.  William Shakespeare, The History of King Lear I i 138-140, Kent

 

 

We never fail when we try to do our duty, we always fail when we neglect to do it.  Robert Baden-Powell

 

 

Happiness and moral duty are inseparably connected.  George Washington

 

 

Sometimes the first duty of intelligent men is the restatement of the obvious.  George Orwell

 

 

Only aim to do your duty, and mankind will give you credit where you fail.  Thomas Jefferson

 

 

I slept and dreamt that life was beauty; I woke and found that life was duty.  Lord Byron

 

 

Duty is what one expects from others.  Oscar Wilde

 

 

An enlightened man had but one duty – to seek the way to himself, to reach inner certainty, to grope his way forward, no matter where it led.  Hermann Hesse, Demian: Die Geschichte von Emil Sinclairs Jugend

 

 

There is one thing, Emma, which a man can always do if he chooses, and that is his duty; not by manoeuvring and finessing, but by vigour and resolution.  Jane Austen, Emma

 

 

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.  Abraham Lincoln, speech 27th February 1860
