"Sinful doubts are traitors,
And make us lose the good we oft might win,
By fearing to attempt them."
Shakspere. [Harmonies of Tones and Colours, Reflections on the Scheme3, page 45]

"For, good - as virtue - must be its own reward." [Cayce 349-13]

"Good alone lives on." [Cayce 2051-5]

"WE WILL WORK TOGETHER for the good that may be in the experience of each! Get that 'together!'" [Cayce 1158-14]

"So live your own life, and create in the experience and minds of others, that there will develop something that may be carried on into eternity. For only good lives on." [Cayce 1731-1]

"Do good for Good's sake, do good because it brings contentment, it brings harmony, it brings peace, it brings relationships that create in the hearts of your friends JOY and HOPE and the LONGING for the greater knowledge of the SOURCE of good." [Cayce (417-8)]

"What is good? ... What is creative, what is constructive, ye may ask? That which never hinders, which never makes for the bringing of any harm to others." [Cayce 1206-13]

"Look for good and ye will find it. Search for it, for it is as a pearl of great price." [Cayce 1776-1]

"When you use what you have, more is given to you. There is enough every day if it is all used; not just for yourself. Not that you can't consider yourself, but losing yourself in good is the better way to FIND yourself." [Cayce 1206-13)]

"What is good? How is such defined in your life - of awakening to all the possibilities that exist in your intake of life and its phases? To do good is to think constructively, to think creatively." [Cayce 1206-13]

H. P. Blavatsky
"Theosophy, in its abstract meaning, is Divine Wisdom, or the aggregate of the knowledge and wisdom that underlie the Universe - the homogeneity of eternal GOOD; and in its concrete sense it is the sum total of the same as allotted to man by nature, on this earth, and no more." [The Key to Theosophy, by H. P. Blavatsky, 1889]

Franz Hartmann
"Life is a continual battle between error and truth; between man's spiritual aspirations and the demands of his animal instincts. There are two gigantic obstacles in the way of progress: his misconception of the nature of God and of Man. As long as man believes in an extra cosmic personal God distributing favours to some and punishing others at pleasure, a God that can be reasoned with, persuaded, and pacified by ignorant man, he will keep himself within the narrow confines of his ignorance, and his mind cannot expand. To think of some place of personal enjoyment or heaven, does not assist man's progression. If such a person desists from doing a wicked act, or denies himself a material pleasure, he does not do so from any innate love of good; but either because he expects a reward from God for his "sacrificeā€¯, or because his fear of God makes him a coward. We must do good, not on account of any personal consideration, but because to do good is our duty. To be good is to be wise; the fool expects rewards; the wise expects nothing. The wise knows that by benefiting the world he benefits himself, and that by injuring others he becomes his own executioner." [Franz Hartmann]
