|Duty grows everywhere, like children, like grass.|
|Duty is one and invariable; it requires no impossibilities, nor can it ever be disregarded with impunity; so far as it exists, it is binding, so as on no account to be neglected. How can one bind stronger than another?|
Henry D. Thoreau.Essay, written 1837.
|There is no evil that we cannot either face or fly from, but the consciousness of duty disregarded.|
A sense of duty pursues us ever. It is omnipresent, like the Diety.
Daniel Webster.Argument on the Trial of John F. Knapp.
