Moral Growth quotes by Richard C. Carrier
#1. ...the naive forms of Christian moral motivation - bare threats of hell and the bribery of heaven - stunt moral growth by ensuring believers remain emotional children, never achieving the cognitive moral development of adults. Psychologists have established that mature adults are moral not because of bare threats and bribes (that stage of moral development typifies children, not adults), but because they care about the effects their behavior has on themselves and others. #Quote by Richard C. Carrier
Moral Growth quotes by Michael Sandel
#2. One of the ways in which parenting is a learning experience and an opportunity for moral growth is that we learn as parents that we don't choose the kind of child that we have. #Quote by Michael Sandel
Moral Growth quotes by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
#3. If humanism were right in declaring that man is born to be happy, he would not be born to die. Since his body is doomed to die, his task on earth evidently must be of a more spiritual nature. It cannot unrestrained enjoyment of everyday life. It cannot be the search for the best ways to obtain material goods and then cheerfully get the most out of them. It has to be the fulfillment of a permanent, earnest duty so that one's life journey may become an experience of moral growth, so that one may leave life a better human being than one started it. #Quote by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
Moral Growth quotes by George Lakoff
#4. Moral growth is a central idea in religion and law. The idea of repentance presupposes the possibility for moral growth. In law, "showing remorse" is a demonstration of moral growth and grounds for a reduced prison sentence. The idea of moral growth has long been associated more with liberal than with conservative politics. This comes out clearly in the politics of prisons. The concept of rehabilitation is based on the concept of moral growth. The idea is that if prisoners are treated humanely, taught useful skills, encouraged to get an education, allowed to earn furloughs, and provided with a job upon release, they will have a chance to grow morally and become useful citizens. Not that this is guaranteed, by any means. But if prisoners do grow morally, there is no reason to keep them in prison. T #Quote by George Lakoff
Moral Growth quotes by Frederick Douglass
#5. A battle lost or won is easily described, understood, and appreciated, but the moral growth of a great nation requires reflection, as well as observation, to appreciate it. #Quote by Frederick Douglass
Moral Growth quotes by Ivan Goncharov
#6. All at once he found his mind drawing a parallel between that destiny and his own existence; all at once questions of life arose before his vision, like owls in an ancient ruin flushed from sleep by a stray ray of sunlight. Somehow he felt pained and grieved at his arrested development, at the check which had taken place in his moral growth, at the weight which appeared to be pressing upon his every faculty. Also gnawing at his heart there was a sense of envy that others should be living a life so full and free, while all the time the narrow, pitiful little pathway of his own existence was being blocked by a great boulder. And in his hesitating soul there arose a torturing consciousness that many sides of his nature had never yet been stirred, that others had never even been touched, and that not one of them had attained complete formation. Yet with this there went an aching suspicion that, buried in his being, as in a tomb, there still remained a moribund element of sweetness and light, and that it was an element which, though hidden in his personality, as a nugget lies lurking in the bowels of the earth, might once have become minted into sterling coin. But the treasure was now overlaid with rubbish--was now thickly littered over with dust. 'Twas as though some one had stolen from him, and besmirched, the store of gifts with which life and the world had dowered him; so that always he would be prevented from entering life's field and sailing across it with the aid of intelle #Quote by Ivan Goncharov
Moral Growth quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#7. Moral authority is never retained by any attempt to hold on to it. It comes without seeking and is retained without effort. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Moral Growth quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#8. Though we may know Him by a thousand names, He is one and the same to us all. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Moral Growth quotes by Mahatma Gandhi
#9. All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth. #Quote by Mahatma Gandhi
Moral Growth quotes by Robert Wright
#10. Maybe the growth of "God" signifies the existence of God. That is: if history naturally pushes people toward moral improvement, toward moral growth, and their God, as they conceive their God, grows accordingly, becoming morally richer, then maybe this growth is evidence of some higher purpose, and maybe - conceivably - the source of that purpose is worthy of the name divinity. #Quote by Robert Wright
Moral Growth quotes by Robin Wall Kimmerer
#11. Had the new people learned what Original Man was taught at a council of animals - never damage Creation, and never interfere with the sacred purpose of another being - the eagle would look down on a different world. The salmon would be crowding up the rivers, and passenger pigeons would darken the sky. Wolves, cranes, Nehalem, cougars, Lenape, old-growth forests would still be here, each fulfilling their sacred purpose. I would be speaking Potawatomi. We would see what Nanabozho saw. It does not bear too much imagining, for in that direction lies heartbreak. #Quote by Robin Wall Kimmerer
Moral Growth quotes by Paul Levine
#12. I've never been disbarred, committed or convicted of moral turpitude, and the only time I was arrested, it was a case of mistaken identity ... I didn't know the guy I hit was a cop. #Quote by Paul Levine
Moral Growth quotes by Haemin Sunim
#13. Because I have experienced pain, I am able to embrace the pain of others. Because I have made mistakes, I am able to forgive others their mistakes. May my suffering become the seed of compassion #Quote by Haemin Sunim
Moral Growth quotes by Geoffrey Miller
#14. Scientific theories never dictate human values, but they can often cast new light on ethical issues. From a sexual selection viewpoint, moral philosophy and political theory have mostly been attempts to shift male human sexual competitiveness from physical violence to the peaceful accumulation of wealth and status. The rights to life, liberty, and property are cultural inventions that function, in part, to keep males from killing and stealing from one another while they compete to attract sexual partners. #Quote by Geoffrey Miller
Moral Growth quotes by James G. Frazer
#15. The moral world is as little exempt as the physical world from the law of ceaseless change, of perpetual flux. #Quote by James G. Frazer
Moral Growth quotes by Christopher Earle
#16. What makes one strong is not the ability to confront adversity and cruelty, but rather the ability to love in spite of it. #Quote by Christopher Earle
Moral Growth quotes by Anne Bronte
#17. I wished to tell the truth, for truth always conveys its own moral to those who are able to receive it. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Moral Growth quotes by Deepak Chopra
#18. Your soul sees no missed opportunities. In reality every road you traveled offered up an experience as a gift, and as the complex fabric of life wove itself, each experience added to your growth. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Moral Growth quotes by Randy Alcorn
#19. The vermin explain their sin with sanctimonious language like, "We've prayed about it and sought counsel, and we feel it's the right thing to do." Don't let it down on them that to the Enemy what they feel is inconsequential. His moral laws don't give a rip about how any of them feel. The sludgebags have no more power to vote them in and out of existence than they have power to revoke the law of gravity. #Quote by Randy Alcorn
Moral Growth quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#20. You cannot bury someone with the Shereketa spirit for long. Even if they are thrown into problems, they will rise back up. #Quote by Archibald Marwizi
Moral Growth quotes by Tim Minchin
#21. If anyone can show me one example in the history of the world of a single spiritual person who has been able to show either empirically or logically the existence of a higher power with any consciousness or interest in the human race or ability to punish or reward humans for their moral choices or that there is any reason other than fear to believe in any version of an afterlife, I will give you my piano, one of my legs and my wife. #Quote by Tim Minchin
Moral Growth quotes by Sam Manekshaw
#22. What is Moral Courage? It is the ability to distinguish right from wrong and having so distinguished it, be prepared to say so,irrespective of the views held by your superiors or subordinates and of consequences to yourself. #Quote by Sam Manekshaw
Moral Growth quotes by Lewis N. Roe
#23. ...the standard for moral behaviour must be part of God's nature. He did not create morality, he is morality. #Quote by Lewis N. Roe
Moral Growth quotes by Michael Badnarik
#24. The Libertarian position on the freedom of speech is a strong support of freedom of speech, and we oppose government intervention in controlling what is or is not moral. #Quote by Michael Badnarik
Moral Growth quotes by Robert Breault
#25. Sometimes in tragedy we find our life's purpose - the eye sheds a tear to find its focus. #Quote by Robert Breault
Moral Growth quotes by Anna Quindlen
#26. Here is my favorite biblical direction: Be not afraid. It's truly the secret of life. Fear is what stunts our growth, narrows our ambitions, kills our dreams.

So fear not.

...You are surely afraid: of leaving what you know, of seeking what you want, of taking the wrong path, of failing the right one. But you can't allow any of that to warp your life. You must have the strength to say no to the wrong things and to embrace the right ones, even if you are the only one who seems to know the difference, even if you find the difference hard to calculate.

Acts of bravery don't always take place on battle fields. They can take place in your heart, when you have the courage to honor your character, your intellect, your inclinations, and yes, your soul by listening to its clean, clear voice of direction instead of following the muddied messages of a timid world. So carry your courage in an easily accessible place, the way you do your cellphone or your wallet. You may still falter or fail, but you will always know that you pushed hard and aimed high. Take a leap of faith. Fear not. Courage is the ultimate career move. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Moral Growth quotes by Stendhal
#27. For the future, I shall rely only upon those elements of my character which I have tested. Who would ever have said that I should find pleasure in shedding tears? That I should love the man who proves to me that I am nothing more than a fool? #Quote by Stendhal
Moral Growth quotes by Patty Smith
#28. A lot of (children's literature) beginners get bogged down by morals. A moral should never be driving the story. And a moral should never be confused with a plot. You can't preach to kids, and you can't talk down to them, either. It's amazing how they sense condescension. #Quote by Patty Smith
Moral Growth quotes by Timothy Moran
#29. By eliminating choice there is in turn an elimination of growth. You must have a choice and in experiencing both the light and the dark you are given a wonderful opportunity to choose. #Quote by Timothy Moran
Moral Growth quotes by Satya Nadella
#30. Cloud is just emerging, but it's high growth. #Quote by Satya Nadella
Moral Growth quotes by Joseph Salerno
#31. It is precisely through falling prices that the fruits of increased productivity and economic growth are spread throughout the market economy. #Quote by Joseph Salerno
Moral Growth quotes by Joshua Stannard
#32. You see, what we do with what He gives us determines how much more we will get. #Quote by Joshua Stannard
Moral Growth quotes by Pope John Paul II
#33. The greatest deception, and the deepest source of unhappiness, is the illusion of finding life by excluding God, of finding freedom by excluding moral truths and personal responsibility. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Moral Growth quotes by Bill Bartmann
#34. The main cause of failure is the inability to deal with self-doubt. #Quote by Bill Bartmann
Moral Growth quotes by Mengistu Haile Mariam
#35. When was in prison I admired him for his moral strength ...
Of his period in power I can see few results. Apartheid no longer exists, at least to all appearances, but no one understands what the new government in South Africa is doing. #Quote by Mengistu Haile Mariam
Moral Growth quotes by Andrew Fastow
#36. I lost my moral compass and I have done terrible things that I very much regret. #Quote by Andrew Fastow
Moral Growth quotes by Sunday Adelaja
#37. There is a possibility of economic growth through honesty and truth. #Quote by Sunday Adelaja
Moral Growth quotes by Deepak Chopra
#38. The moral of the tale is, don't live for the approval of others. The real you is here to find out the secret of life, not t satisfy someone else's opinion. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Moral Growth quotes by Garry Kasparov
#39. A moral foreign policy means your positions on certain matters are clear no matter what, and that you won't forget about them when it's convenient. #Quote by Garry Kasparov

#40. Emotions are good as long as you are in control of them. #Quote by
Moral Growth quotes by Naomi Klein
#41. This same economic system, based on short-term growth and endless profits is also the reason for pretty much everything else that is lousy in our society, from private prisons to Fox News. What I'm arguing is that, in fact, what we've been told is a lie. #Quote by Naomi Klein
Moral Growth quotes by Mikhail Bakunin
#42. We must overthrow the material and moral conditions of our present-day life ... We must first purify our atmosphere and completely transform the milieu in which we live; for it corrupts our instinct and our will, and constricts our heart and our intelligence #Quote by Mikhail Bakunin
Moral Growth quotes by Andrew Solomon
#43. Biology is not destiny. There are ways to lead a good life with depression. Indeed, people who learn from their depression can develop a particular moral profundity from the experience, #Quote by Andrew Solomon
Moral Growth quotes by William Montgomery Watt
#44. His readiness to undergo persecutions for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all argue his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history is so poorly appreciated in the West as Muhammad #Quote by William Montgomery Watt
Moral Growth quotes by Renae A. Sauter
#45. Being human is a portal into your divinity, #Quote by Renae A. Sauter
Moral Growth quotes by Felix Adler
#46. The right for the right's sake is the motto which everyone should take for his own life. With that as a standard of value we can descend into our hearts, appraise ourselves, and determine in how far we already are moral beings, in how far not yet. #Quote by Felix Adler
Moral Growth quotes by Dorit Brauer
#47. Our fragile, perishable bodies are not who we are. We are the sum of fleeting moments that belong to us for eternity. It is our choice and responsibility to create moments of beauty and grace, instead of despair and suffering. #Quote by Dorit Brauer
Moral Growth quotes by William James
#48. If I refuse to stop a murder because I am in doubt whether it be not justifiable homicide, I am virtually abetting the crime. If I refuse to bale out a boat because I am in doubt whether my efforts will keep her afloat, I am really helping to sink her. If in the mountain precipice I doubt my right to risk a leap, I actively connive at my destruction. He who commands himself not to be credulous of God, of duty, of freedom, of immortality, may again and again be indistinguishable from him who dogmatically denies them. Scepticism in moral matters is an active ally of immorality. Who is not for is against. The universe will have no neutrals in these questions. In theory as in practice, dodge or hedge, or talk as we like about a wise scepticism, we are really doing volunteer military service for one side or the other. #Quote by William James
Moral Growth quotes by Al Gore
#49. Civil disobedience has an honourable history, and when the urgency and moral clarity cross a certain threshold, then I think that civil disobedience is quite understandable, and it has a role to play. #Quote by Al Gore
Moral Growth quotes by Dorothy Day
#50. Of all the charges made against the Communists these days of congressional investigations, the charge of loose morals is seldom heard, so very loose have become those of "Christian" people. #Quote by Dorothy Day
Moral Growth quotes by Jane Velez-Mitchell
#51. We cannot consume our way into personal growth. Yet, millions of us have bought into this cynical concept of faux identity. #Quote by Jane Velez-Mitchell
Moral Growth quotes by Balroop Singh
#52. Life may be circular but its circumference keeps getting wider for us to grow. #Quote by Balroop Singh
Moral Growth quotes by Rebecca Goldstein
#53. I would say to anybody who thinks that all the problems in philosophy can be translated into empirically verifiable answers - whether it be a Lawrence Krauss thinking that physics is rendering philosophy obsolete or a Sam Harris thinking that neuroscience is rendering moral philosophy obsolete - that it takes an awful lot of philosophy - philosophy of science in the first case, moral philosophy in the second - even to demonstrate the relevance of these empirical sciences. #Quote by Rebecca Goldstein
Moral Growth quotes by George Trumbull Ladd
#54. Education is so much of an organic unity that, if any of the stages or elements of it be defective, the deficiency is felt throughout all the subsequent growth of the organism. #Quote by George Trumbull Ladd
Moral Growth quotes by Frosty Wooldridge
#55. There are many paths through the Ring of Life. They are a constant movement toward self-fulfillment through growth of your mind, expansion of your experiences, widening of your senses and growing your spirit. It's ceaseless and constant throughout one's life. #Quote by Frosty Wooldridge
Moral Growth quotes by E. M. Forster
#56. Not even to herself dare she blame Helen. She could not assess her trespass by any moral code; it was everything or nothing. Morality can tell us that murder is worse than stealing, and group most sins in an order all must approve, but it cannot group Helen. The surer its pronouncements on this point, the surer may we be that morality is not speaking. Christ was evasive when they questioned Him. It is those that cannot connect who hasten to cast the first stone. #Quote by E. M. Forster
Moral Growth quotes by Alice Bailey
#57. The Masonic movement ... is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Deity, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. It is a far more occult organization than can be realised, and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists. In its ceremonials lie hid the wielding of the forces connected with the growth and life of the kingdoms of nature and the unfoldment of the divine aspects in man. #Quote by Alice Bailey
Moral Growth quotes by Morrie Schwartz.
#58. As you grow, you learn more. If you stayed as ignorant as you were at twenty-two, you'd always be twenty-two. Aging is not just decay, you know. It's growth. It's more than the negative that you're going to die, it's the positive that you understand you're going to die, and that you live a better life because of it. #Quote by Morrie Schwartz.
Moral Growth quotes by Andrew Wyeth
#59. You think you're developing and getting better and then you see something you did years ago. Looking at your early work.. sometimes it has a depth that surprises you. #Quote by Andrew Wyeth
