Great souls have wills; feeble ones have only wishes.Chinese Proverb
Quotes about precept:
- "Precept must be upon precept."
- "Precepts are the rules by which we ought to square our lives. When they are contracted into sentences, they strike the affections; whereas admonition is only blowing of the coal."
- "He that lays down precepts for the government of our lives and moderating our passions obliges human nature, not only in the present, but in all succeeding generations."
- "Precepts or maxims are of great weight; and a few useful ones at hand do more toward a happy life than whole volumes that we know not where to find."
- Klopsch, Louis, 1852-1910 (1896). Many Thoughts of Many Minds.
