right

The light of faith makes us see what we believe. For just as, by the habits of the other virtues, man sees what is fitting to him in respect of that habit, so, by the habit of faith, the human mind is directed to assent to such things as are fitting to a right faith, and not to assent to others. -
Right thinking is a prerequisite to right living... In truth the destiny of any life is determined by what fills that mind. - Roy I. Bagley
My reason teaches me that land cannot be sold. The Great Spirit gave it to his children to live upon and cultivate as far as necessary for their subsistence, and so long as they occupy and cultivate it they have the right to the soil, but if they voluntarily leave it then any other people have a right to settle on it. Nothing can be sold, except things that can be carried away. - Black Hawk, born Ma-ka-tai-me-she-kia-kiak
Not only is there a right to be happy, there is a duty to be happy. So much sadness exists in the world that we are all under obligation to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers. - Abel Bonnard
Readiness for death is that of character, rather than occupation. It is right living which prepares for safe or even joyous dying. O death! We thank thee for the light thou wilt shed upon our ignorance. -
Every man has a right to utter what he thinks truth, and every other man has a right to knock him down for it. - James Boswell
Success in marriage does not come merely through finding the right mate, but through being the right mate. - Barnett Brickner
On life's journey faith is nourishment, virtuous deeds are a shelter, wisdom is the light by day and right mindfulness is the protection by night. If a man lives a pure life nothing can destroy him; if he has conquered greed nothing can limit his freedom. - Buddha, Gautama Buddha, or The Buddha, also Gotama Buddha, Siddhārtha Gautama Buddha and Buddha Śākyamuni
We are too fond of our own will; we want to be doing what we fancy mighty things: but the great point is to do small things, when called to them, in a right spirit. - Richard Cecil
True compassion is utterly neutral and is moved by suffering of every sort, not tied to right and wrong, attachment and aversion. - Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
