  • True glory consists in doing what deserves to be written, in writing what deserves to be read, and in so living as to make the world happier and better for our living in it.

Unsourced

  • Wood burns because it has the proper stuff for that purpose in it; and a man becomes renowned because he has the necessary stuff in him. Renown is not to be sought, and all pursuit of it is vain. A person may, indeed, by skillful conduct and various artificial means, make a sort of name for himself; but if the inner jewel is wanting, all is vanity, and will not last a day.
  • The road to glory would cease to be arduous if it were trite and trodden; and great minds must be ready not only to take opportunities but to make them.
    • Colton
  • Glory relaxes often and debilitates the mind; censure stimulates and contracts,—both to an extreme. Simple fame is, perhaps, the proper medium.
    • Shenstone

From BibleWiki

(Heb. kabhod; Gr. doxa).

  1. Abundance, wealth, treasure, and hence honour (Ps 4912); glory (Gen 31:1; Mt 4:8; Rev 21:24, 26).
  2. Honour, dignity (1 Kg 3:13; Heb 2:7 1 Pet 1:24); of God (Ps 191; 29:1); of the mind or heart (Gen 49:6; Ps 75; Acts 2:46).
  3. Splendour, brightness, majesty (Gen 45:13; Isa 4:5; Acts 22:11; 2Cor 3:7); of Jehovah (Isa 59:19; 60:1; 2 Thes 1:9).
  4. The glorious moral attributes, the infinite perfections of God (Isa 40:5; Acts 7:2; Rom 1:23; 9:23; Eph 1:12). Jesus is the "brightness of the Father's glory" (Heb 1:3; Jn 1:14; 2:11).
  5. The bliss of heaven (Rom 2:7, 10; 5:2; 8:18; Heb 2:10; 1 Pet 5:1, 10).
  6. The phrase "Give glory to God" (Josh 7:19; Jer 13:16) is a Hebrew idiom meaning, "Confess your sins." The words of the Jews to the blind man, "Give God the praise" (Jn 9:24), are an adjuration to confess. They are equivalent to, "Confess that you are an impostor," "Give God the glory by speaking the truth;" for they denied that a miracle had been wrought.
