Love and Loyalty (fidelty) are prime virtues
Love and loyalty (fidelity) are prime virtues. Loyalty must come down if it is to come up, of course.
1)“Love is space and time measured by the heart.”
~ Marcel Proust ~
(1871-1922, French author)
2) “The heart that has truly loved never forgets….”
Thomas Moore, Irish poet.
3) “Tis a good thing, a happy thing when all men are leal and true; happy for them and happy for all. Loyal hearts are loving hearts.”
4)”…keeping ever before you, aye, the images of darling children fondly listening as they are told about their absent father by your lealhearted loving wife.”
….biographical sketch of Sir Henry Havelock, 1858 By William Brock)
(AMajor-General Sir Henry Havelock, (5 April 1795 – 29 November 1857) was a British general who is particularly associated with India and Afghanistan. He was noted for his recapture of Cawnpore from rebels during Sepoy Muntiny of 1857. He was the commanding officer of Sir Colin Campbell of the 93rd Sutherland Highlanders, the original THIN RED LINE OF HEROES.)
5) Every society rests ,in the last resort,
on the recognition of common principles and common ideals,
and if it makes no moral or spiritual appeal to the loyalty of its
members, it must inevitably fall to pieces.”
Christopher Dawson, English historian
