6 Duty Quotes from Literature

There are times when it is one's duty to assert oneself. ~ The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie It is not possible to know how far the influence of any amiable honest-hearted duty-doing man flies out into the world; but it is very possible to know how it has touched one's self in going by. ~ Great Expectations by Charles Dickens "I hold that duty cannot exist without faith." ~ Tancred by Benjamin Disraeli "We thought that, perhaps," said I, hesitating, "it is right to begin with the obligations of home, sir; and that, perhaps, while those are overlooked and neglected, no other duties can possibly be substituted for them." ~ Bleak House by Charles Dickens But Duty has a trick of behaving unexpectedly--something like a heavy friend whom we have amiably asked to visit us, and who breaks his leg within our gates. ~ Middlemarch by George Eliot "Rattle me out of bed early, set me going, give me as short a time as you like to bolt my meals in, and keep me at it. Keep me always at it, and I'll keep you always at it, you keep somebody else always at it. There you are with the Whole Duty of Man in a commercial country." ~ Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens
