Quotes about good deeds.

“How far that little candle throws his beams! So shines a good deed in a weary world.”    ―    

William Shakespeare


     The Merchant of Venice    

“Every time you do a good deed you shine the light a little farther into the dark. And the thing is, when you’re gone that light is going to keep shining on, pushing the shadows back.”  
 ―    Charles de Lint

“if you do one good deed your reward usually is to be set to do another and harder and better one.”  
C.S. Lewis,          The Horse and His Boy    

“…we should be remembered for the things we do. The things we do are the most important things of all. They are more important than what we say or what we look like. The things we do outlast our mortality. The things we do are like monuments that people build to honour heroes after they’ve died. They’re like the pyramids that the Egyptians built to honour the Pharaohs. Only instead of being made out of stone, they’re made out of the memories people have of you. That’s why your deeds are like your monuments. Built with memories instead of with stone.”  
 ―    R.J. Palacio

“The best deed of a great man is to forgive and forget.”  
Hazrat Ali Ibn Abu-Talib A.S

“Be happy, noble heart, be blessed for all the good thou hast done and wilt do hereafter, and let my gratitude remain in obscurity like your good deeds.”  
Alexandre Dumas,          The Count of Monte Cristo    

If you do good, you do good for yourselves

إِنْ أَحْسَنْتُمْ أَحْسَنْتُمْ لِأَنْفُسِكُمْ وَإِنْ أَسَأْتُمْ فَلَهَا

If you do good, you do good for yourselves; and if you do evil, you do it to yourselves. (Surat al-Isra 17:7)

A hundred years from now when you are alone in your grave, no one will care how much money you had, what car you drove or what kind of house you lived in. The only thing that will matter then will be your righteous deeds.

We have one life; it soon will be past; what we do for God is all that will last.
One of the Salaf (Pious Predecessors) said: “Indeed a servant commits a sin by which he enters Paradise; and another does a good deed by which he enters the Fire.” It was asked: How is that? So he replied: “The one who committed the sin, constantly thinks about it; which causes him to fear it, regret it, weep over it and feel ashamed in front of his Lord - the Most High - due to it. He stands before Allaah, broken-hearted and with his head lowered in humility. So this sin is more beneficial to him than doing many acts of obedience, since it caused him to have humility and humbleness - which leads to the servant’s happiness and success - to the extent that this sin becomes the cause for him entering Paradise. As for the doer of good, then he does not consider this good a favour from his Lord Upon him. Rather, he becomes arrogant and amazed with himself, saying: I have achieved such and such, and such and such . So this further increases him in self adulation, pride and arrogance - such that this becomes the cause for his destruction.”

Quran 19:76 – Surat Maryam

وَالْبَاقِيَاتُ الصَّالِحَاتُ خَيْرٌ عِنْدَ رَبِّكَ ثَوَابًا وَخَيْرٌ مَرَدًّا

And good deeds, the fruit whereof endures forever, are, in your Lord’s sight, of far greater merit [than any worldly goods], and yield far better returns.
