Immanuel Kant

A good will is not good because of what it effects or accomplishes, because of its fitness to attain some proposed end, but only because of its volition…Even if, by a special disfavor of fortune…this will should wholly lack the capacity to carry out its purpose…then, like a jewel, it would still shine by itself, as something that has its full worth in itself. Usefulness or fruitlessness can neither add anything to this worth nor take anything away from it.
