"Children need to learn how to do things which they do not want to do, when those things ought to be done.  Older people have to do a great many things from a sense of duty.  Unless children are trained to recognize duty as more binding than inclination, they will suffer all their lives through their lack of discipline in this direction."
-H. Clay Trumbell

"Duty then is the sublimest word in the
English language. You should do your duty in
all things. You can never do more, you should
never wish to do less." 
 - General Robert E. Lee

"'The hard but right way,' he said.  'The hard but right way,' Faithful repeated."
-John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress as retold by Gary Schmidt
