Goodness
 
  True goodness is like the glow-worm in this, that it shines most when no eyes, except those of heaven, are upon it.
            —Edwin Arnold
  1
  As a horse when he has run, a bee when he has made honey, so man when he has done a good act does not call out for others to come and see, but he goes on to another act, as the vine goes on to produce again the grapes in season.
            —Marcus Aurelius
  2
  Goodness, like the Sun, enlightens all.
            —Samuel Boyse
  3
  Goodnesse is like the art prospective: one point center, begetting infinite rayes.
            —Sir Thomas Overbury
  4
  Your goodness is as a morning cloud, and as the early dew it goeth away.
            —Old Testament
  5
