Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Duty
 
Duty grows everywhere, like children, like grass.
        Emerson.—Character.
  1
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.
  2
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.
