LOYALTY
[ Also see Constancy Conviction Faithfulness Fidelity Friendship Love Love of Country Patriotism Royalty Treachery Treason ]

Loyalty to God is alone fundamental. Feelings, words, deeds, must be beads strung on the string of duty. Let the world tell you in a hundred ways what your life is for. Say you ever and only, "Lo, I come to do Thy will, O my God." Out of that dutiful root grows the beautiful life, the life radically and radiantly true to God--the only life that can be lived in both worlds.
      - Maltbie Davenport Babcock

Loyalty in time of need is possibly one of the noblest of victories a courtier can win over himself.
      - Honore de Balzac

The civil authority, or that part of it which remained faithful to their trust and true to the ends of the covenant, did, in answer to their consciences, turn out a tyrant, in a way which the Christians in aftertimes will mention with honor, and all tyrants in the world look at with fear.
      - Thomas Carlyle,
        in "Dictionary of National Biography," vol. XIII, in C.H. Firth's Cromwell article

No more duty can be urged upon those who are entering the great theater of life than simple loyalty to their best convictions.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

When young we are faithful to individuals, when older we grow more loyal to situations and to types.
      - Cyril Connolly

Wake in our breast the living fires,
  The holy faith that warmed our sires;
    Thy hand hath made our Nation free;
      To die for her is serving Thee.
      - Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

We mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.
      - Thomas Jefferson

I bleed Dodger blue, and when I die, I'm going to the Big Dodger in the sky.
      - Tommy Lasorda,
        on belonging to the Dodger baseball team

With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right.
      - Abraham Lincoln, Second Inaugural Address

Not that I loved Caesar less; but that I loved Rome more.
      - William Shakespeare

To thine own self be true,
  And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any man.
      - William Shakespeare

When I forget my sovereign, may my God forget me.
      - Lord Edward Thurlow (1), 1st Baron Thurlow
