Beautiful things

I'm delighted to have found the following proverb. It is really utterly lovely:

The most beautiful things in the universe are the starry heavens above us and the feeling of duty within us.

-- Indian proverb

  1. ". . . the feeling of duty within us." This phrase keeps haunting me. How many of us have a sense of duty withing us? Is this something we are teaching the next generation? When I look at my parents' generation, they did so many things--very unpleasant things out of a sense of duty. I'm ashamed to say I'm not sure I would withstand a litmus test as to possessing and acting on a sense of duty.
