Morals quotes by International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights
#1. Article 19

1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.

2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.

3. The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary:

(a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others;

(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals. #Quote by International Covenant On Civil And Political Rights
Morals quotes by Chris Hedges
#2. The poison that is war does not free us from the ethics of responsibility. There are times when we must take this poison - just as a person with cancer accepts chemotherapy to live. We can not succumb to despair. Force is and I suspect always will be part of the human condition. There are times when the force wielded by one immoral faction must be countered by a faction that, while never moral, is perhaps less immoral.
We in the industrialized world bear responsibility for the world's genocides because we had the power to intervene and did not. We stood by and watched the slaughter in Chechnya, Sri Lanka, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Rwanda where a million people died. The blood for the victims of Srebrenica- a designated UN safe area in Bosnia- is on our hands. The generation before mine watched, with much the same passivity, the genocides of Germany, Poland, Hungary, Greece, and the Ukraine. These slaughters were, as in, Gabriel Garcia Marquez's book Chronical of a Death Foretold, often announced in advance #Quote by Chris Hedges
Morals quotes by Suzy Kassem
#3. The parent is protector and trainer, but never the ultimate teacher. Every parent is responsible for teaching their kid basic moral conduct, manners, the difference between love and hate, and right from wrong. However, after maturity, the child must set off to seek knowledge on their own. Religion is never to be forced. And you cannot threaten your child with hell and tell them your religion is the only right way. There is no one right way. The many ways to the Creator are as varied as the colors of a rainbow. #Quote by Suzy Kassem
Morals quotes by Denis Diderot
#4. En ge ne ral, plus un peuple est civilise , poli, moins ses moeurs sont poe tiques; tout s'affaiblit en s'adoucissant. Ingeneral, themore civilized and refinedthepeople, the less poetic are its morals; everything weakens as it mellows. #Quote by Denis Diderot
Morals quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#5. Nobody has any business to use the word "progress" unless he has a definite creed and a cast-iron code of morals. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Morals quotes by C.S. Lewis
#6. That is why I often find myself at such cross-purposes with the modern world: I have been a converted Pagan living among apostate Puritans. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Morals quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#7. I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health, and the liberties of man. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Morals quotes by Donald L. Hicks
#8. Until you are conscious of your conscience, you are morally unconscious. #Quote by Donald L. Hicks
Morals quotes by John D. MacDonald
#9. Integrity is not a conditional word. It doesn't blow in the wind or change with the weather. It is your inner image of yourself, and if you look in there and see a man who won't cheat, then you know he never will. Integrity is not a search for the rewards of integrity. Maybe all you ever get for it is the largest kick in the ass the world can provide. It is not supposed to be a productive asset. #Quote by John D. MacDonald
Morals quotes by Daniel J. Boorstin
#10. While the easiest way in metaphysics is to condemn all metaphysics as nonsense, the easiest way in morals is to elevate the common practice of the community into a moral absolute. #Quote by Daniel J. Boorstin
Morals quotes by Tinie Tempah
#11. I think it's imperative to have faith or religion, because it's good to have morals, to be kind to others. #Quote by Tinie Tempah
Morals quotes by Will Durant
#12. Racial antipathies have some roots in ethnic origin, but they are also generated, perhaps predominantly, by differences of acquired culture - of language, dress, habits, morals, or religion. There is no cure for such antipathies except a broadened education. #Quote by Will Durant
Morals quotes by Bell Hooks
#13. The widespread assumption that ethical behavior takes the fun out of life is false. In actuality, living ethically ensures that relationships in our lives, including encounters with strangers, nurture our spiritual growth. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Morals quotes by Susan Glaspell
#14. I'm not sure I would be a good godmother. I have read about it, and I found that the godmother's position is to take care of the morals of the child. I don't know how good I would be at that. #Quote by Susan Glaspell
Morals quotes by William Shakespeare
#15. Sometimes we punish ourselves the most. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Morals quotes by Brand Blanshard
#16. Thinking in art and morals and even mathematics is neither the reflection in consciousness of a mechanical order in the brain nor the tracing with the mind's eye of some empirical order in its object, but an endeavour to realize in thought an ideal order which would satisfy an inner demand. The nearer thought comes to its goal, the more it finds itself under constraint by that goal, and dominated in its creative effort by aesthetic or moral or logical relevance. These relations of relevance are not physical or psychological relations. They are normative relations that can enter into the mental current because that current is ... teleological. Their operation marks the presence of a different type of law, which supervenes upon physical and psychological laws when purpose takes control. #Quote by Brand Blanshard
Morals quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#17. The ethics of sex is a thorny problem. Each of us is forced to grope for a solution he can live with - in the face of preposterous, unworkable, and evil code of so-called 'Morals.' Most of us know the code is wrong, almost everybody breaks it. But we pay Danegeld by feeling guilty and giving lip service. Willy-nilly, the code rides us, dead and stinking, an albatross around the neck. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Morals quotes by Will Durant
#18. All forms of governments destroy themselves, by carrying their basic principles to excess. Democracies become too free in politics, in economics, in morals – even in literature and art, until at last even the dogs in our homes, rise up on their hind legs and demand their rights. Disorder grows to such a point that society will then abandon all its liberty to anyone who can restore order. #Quote by Will Durant
Morals quotes by Frances Wright
#19. Now here is a departure from the first principle of true ethics. Here we find ideas of moral wrong and moral right associated with something else than beneficial action. The consequent is, we lose sight of the real basis of morals, and substitute a false one. #Quote by Frances Wright
Morals quotes by Melanie Randolph Miller
#20. [T]he great decided effective Majority is now for the Republic," he told Jefferson in late October 1792, but whether it would endure for even six months "must depend on the Form of Government which shall be presented by the Convention" and whether it could "strike out that happy Mean which secures all the Liberty which Circumstances will admit of combin'd with all the Energy which the same Circumstances require; Whether they can establish an Authority which does not exist, as a Substitute (and always a dangerous Substitute) for that Respect which cannot be restor'd after so much has been to destroy it; Whether in crying down and even ridiculing Religion they will be able on the tottering and uncertain Base of metaphisic Philosophy to establish a solid Edifice of morals, these are Questions which Time must solve."

At the same time he predicted to Rufus King that "we shall have I think some sharp struggles which will make many men repent of what they have done when they find with Macbeth that they have but taught bloody Instructions which return to plague the Inventor." . . .

In early December, he wrote perhaps his most eloquent appraisal of the tragic turn of the [French] Revolution, to Thomas Pinckney. "Success as you will see, continues to crown the French Arms, but it is not our Trade to judge from Success," he began.

"You will soon learn that the Patriots hitherto adored were but little worthy of the Incense they received. The Enemies of th #Quote by Melanie Randolph Miller
Morals quotes by Isaac Asimov
#21. Never let your sense of morals prevent you from doing what is right. #Quote by Isaac Asimov
Morals quotes by J. Aleksandr Wootton
#22. Fairytales teach children that the world is fraught with danger, including life-threatening danger; but by being clever (always), honest (as a rule, but with common-sense exceptions), courteous (especially to the elderly, no matter their apparent social station), and kind (to anyone in obvious need), even a child can succeed where those who seem more qualified have failed.
And this precisely what children most need to hear.
To let them go on believing that the world is safe, that they will be provided for and achieve worthwhile things even if they remain stupid, shirk integrity, despise courtesy, and act only from self-interest, that they ought to rely on those stronger, smarter, and more able to solve their problems, would be the gravest disservice: to them, and to society as a whole.
-On the Supposed Unsuitability of Fairytales for Children #Quote by J. Aleksandr Wootton
Morals quotes by Tina Brown
#23. Along with all those books about Lincoln, Obama might read some biographies of Napoleon. The general who established the Legion d'Honneur understood that people fought as much for medals as for morals. #Quote by Tina Brown
Morals quotes by Jostein Gaarder
#24. But understanding will always require some effort. You probably wouldn't admire a friend who was good at everything if it cost her no effort. #Quote by Jostein Gaarder
Morals quotes by Billy Graham
#25. The Bible teaches that man can undergo a radical spiritual and moral change that is brought about by God Himself. #Quote by Billy Graham
Morals quotes by Bertrand Russell
#26. Intelligence is impeded by any creed, no matter what, and kindness is inhibited by the belief in sin and punishment (this belief, by the way, is the only one that the Soviet Government has taken over from orthodox Christianity) #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Morals quotes by Don Feder
#27. It's said the religious right wants to force its faith on the public. But whose faith are we talking about? ... Everyone who operates in the political arena wants to see their morals reflected in our laws and governmental institutions - including the National Organization of Women, the National Abortion Rights Action League, and the American Civil Liberties Union, whether or not they are willing to admit it. #Quote by Don Feder
Morals quotes by Theophile Gautier
#28. Books follow morals, and not morals books. #Quote by Theophile Gautier
Morals quotes by C.S. Lewis
#29. There is one vice of which no man in the world is free; which every one in the world loathes when he sees it in someone else; and of which hardly any people, except Christians, ever imagine that they are guilty themselves. [ ... ] There is no fault which makes a man more unpopular, and no fault which we are more unconscious of in ourselves.[ ... ]The vice I am talking of is Pride or Self-Conceit: and the virtue opposite to it, in Christian morals, is called Humility. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Morals quotes by Mark Twain
#30. It is full of interest, it has noble poetry in it and some clever fables and some blood drenched history, some good morals and a wealth of obscenity and upwards of a thousand lies.
(Re The Bible) #Quote by Mark Twain
Morals quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#31. In all willing it is absolutely a question of commanding and obeying, on the basis, as already said, of a social structure composed of many "souls," on which account a philosopher should claim the right to include willing-as-such within the sphere of morals - regarded as the doctrine of the relations of supremacy under which the phenomenon of "life" manifests itself. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Morals quotes by Gilles Deleuze
#32. Courage consists, however, in agreeing to flee rather than live tranquilly and hypocritically in false refuges. Values, morals, homelands, religions, and these private certitudes that our vanity and our complacency bestow generously on us, have many deceptive sojourns as the world arranges for those who think they are standing straight and at ease, among stable things #Quote by Gilles Deleuze
Morals quotes by Abraham Cowley
#33. Nothing in Nature's sober found,
But an eternal Health goes round.
Fill up the Bowl then, fill it high
Fill all the Glasses there; for why
Should every Creature Drink but I?
Why, Man of Morals, tell me why? #Quote by Abraham Cowley
Morals quotes by Henry Thomas Buckle
#34. That the system of morals propounded in the New Testament contained no maxim which had not been previously enunciated, and that some of the most beautiful passages in the apostolic writings are quotations from Pagan authors, is well known to every scholar ... To assert that Christianity communicated to man moral truths previously unknown, argues on the part of the asserted either gross ignorance or wilful fraud. #Quote by Henry Thomas Buckle
Morals quotes by Whitney Houston
#35. You don't have a baby based on that publicity madness. People don't live like that. Especially black people who were raised in families with morals and standards and integrity. #Quote by Whitney Houston
Morals quotes by Friedrich A. Hayek
#36. What our generation is in danger of forgetting is not only that morals are of necessity a phenomenon of individual conduct but also that they can exist only in the sphere in which the individual is free to decide for himself and is called upon voluntarily to sacrifice personal advantage to the observance of a moral rule. Outside the sphere of individual responsibility there is neither goodness nor badness, neither opportunity for moral merit nor the chance of proving one's conviction by sacrificing one's desires to what one thinks right. Only were we ourselves are responsible for our own interests and are free to sacrifice them has our decision moral value. We are neither entitled to be unselfish at someone else's expense nor is there any merit in being unselfish if we have no choice. The members of a society who in all respects are made to do the good things have no title to praise. As Milton said: "If every action which is good or evil in a man of ripe years were under pittance an prescription and compulsion, what were virtue but a name, what praise should then be due to well-doing, what gramercy to be sober, just, or continent?"
Freedom to order our own conduct in the sphere where material circumstances force upon us, and responsibility for the arrangement of our own life according to our own conscience, is the air in which alone moral sense grows and in which moral values are daily re-created in the free decision of the individual. Responsibility, not to a superior, #Quote by Friedrich A. Hayek
Morals quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#37. As we know, priests make the most evil enemies – but why? Because they are the most powerless. Out of this powerlessness, their hate swells into something huge and uncanny to a most intellectual and poisonous level. The greatest haters in world history, and the most intelligent, have always been priests: – nobody else's intelligence stands a chance against the intelligence of priestly revenge. The history of mankind would be far too stupid a thing if it had not had the intellect of the powerless injected into it... #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Morals quotes by Brunello Cucinelli
#38. I believe in capitalism. I need to make a profit, but I would like to do it with ethics, dignity, morals. It's my dream. #Quote by Brunello Cucinelli
Morals quotes by Ayn Rand
#39. Are you seeking to know what is wrong with the world? All the disasters that have wrecked your world, came from your leaders' attempt to evade the fact that A is A. All the secret evil you dread to face within you and all the pain you have ever endured, came from your own attempt to evade the fact that A is A. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Morals quotes by Chris Rice
#40. there is a widespread notion in some of the most energetic contemporary Christian movements that the biblical call to reconciliation is solely about reconciling God and humanity, with no reference to social realities. In this view, preaching, teaching, church life and mission are only about a personal relationship between people and God. Christian energy is focused on winning converts, planting and growing churches, and evangelistic efforts. We have heard pastors say, "We appreciate the work you're doing, but as the leader of my church I'm called to stay focused on the gospel and not get distracted by other ministries." For them, Christianity is exclusively about personal piety and morals. #Quote by Chris Rice
Morals quotes by Timothy Ferriss
#41. you should never publicly criticize anyone or anything unless it is a matter of morals or ethics. Anything negative you say could at the very least ruin someone's day, or worse, break someone's heart, or simply change someone from being a future ally of yours to someone who will never forget #Quote by Timothy Ferriss
Morals quotes by Robin Hobb
#42. Sometimes people ask if my books have morals or lessons for readers, and I shudder at that thought. I always say that I have more questions than answers. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Morals quotes by Halo Scot
#43. A man with morals is a rarity at the end of the world. #Quote by Halo Scot
Morals quotes by Tupac Shakur
#44. I know what good morals are,
but you're supposed to disregard good morals when you're living in a crazy, bad world. If you're in hell, how can you live like an angel? You're surrounded by devils,trying to be an angel? That's like suicide. #Quote by Tupac Shakur
Morals quotes by Flora Thompson
#45. Manner and morals have improved, improved wages and world travel during the war have had effect, and the farm labourer now is an intelligent, self respecting workman, on a level at least with the town artisan. The village rustic of the past no longer exists outside of the comic papers. #Quote by Flora Thompson
Morals quotes by Nicolas Chamfort
#46. We gild our medicines with sweets; why not clothe truth and morals in peasant garments as well? #Quote by Nicolas Chamfort
Morals quotes by David Hume
#47. The greatest crimes have been found, in many instances, to be compatible with a superstitious piety and devotion; hence it is justly regarded as unsafe to draw any inference in favor of a man's morals, from the fervor or strictness of his religious exercises, even though he himself believe them sincere. #Quote by David Hume
Morals quotes by Katey Sagal
#48. I always had a struggle, which I still do, when you're playing a character and it's not necessarily your morals or your values. You're playing a character, but the way the media will sometimes ask you if these are your opinions, you know - they make you responsible for that, and I take issue with it because I don't believe in censorship. #Quote by Katey Sagal
Morals quotes by Joel Coen
#49. You see a moral in them? Do we have morals? #Quote by Joel Coen
Morals quotes by Brenda Perlin
#50. I had no intention of forsaking my wedding vows. I had strong morals and never could have imagined going against them. I was never even tempted to stray. #Quote by Brenda Perlin
Morals quotes by Richard Dawkins
#51. The Bible may be an arresting and
poetic work of fiction, but it is not the sort of book you should give
your children to form their morals. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Morals quotes by Charles Carroll Of Carrollton
#52. Without morals a republic cannot subsist any length of time; they therefore who are decrying the Christian religion, whose morality is so sublime and pure (and) which insures to the good eternal happiness, are undermining the solid foundation of morals, the best security for the duration of free governments. #Quote by Charles Carroll Of Carrollton
Morals quotes by Arnold Palmer
#53. I always knew what was most important to me. When I was growing up, nothing was more important than golf, but that's the attitude of a young person who hasn't a care in the world. Later on I figured it out. Family was first. Always. Then golf and business come after. #Quote by Arnold Palmer
Morals quotes by Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
#54. If you can't beat them, leave them. Good morals do not improve bad association. It's a reverse that will only drive to regret. #Quote by Vincent Okay Nwachukwu
Morals quotes by John Granger
#55. Second, the reason to embrace and celebrate these novels as the countercultural event that they are is due largely to the subliminal messages delivered by Harry and friends in their stolen wheelbarrows. Readers walk away, maybe a little softer on the occult than they were, but with story-embedded messages: the importance of a pure soul; love's power even over death; about sacrifice and loyalty; a host of images and shadows about Christ and how essential 'right belief' is for personal transformation and victory over internal and external evils. #Quote by John Granger
Morals quotes by Lucy Hale
#56. I'm not trying to be something I'm not. I know what I believe in. I know my morals and I know what I have to offer. #Quote by Lucy Hale
Morals quotes by Raymond Bonner
#57. The Philippines is a country in which a man of morals can't be president, in which a politician who hasn't been linked to any wrongdoing isn't assumed to be honest, but merely better at hiding his corruption. #Quote by Raymond Bonner
Morals quotes by Bertrand Russell
#58. This political disorder found expression in Machiavelli Prince. In the absence of any guiding principle, politics becomes a naked struggle for power; The Prince gives shrewd advice as to how to play this game successfully. What had happened in the great age of Greece happened again in Renaissance Italy: traditional moral restraints disappeared, because they were seen to be associated with superstition; the liberation from fetters made individuals energetic and creative, producing a rare florescence of genius; but the anarchy and treachery which inevitably resulted from the decay of morals made Italians collectively impotent, and they fell, like the Greeks, under the domination of nations less civilized than themselves but not so destitute of social cohesion. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Morals quotes by Charles Bukowski
#59. And when you write a poem within the accepted poem-form, making it sound like a poem because a poem is a poem is a poem, you are saying "good morning" in that poem, and well, your morals are straight and you have not said SHIT, but wouldn't it be wonderful if you could ... instead of sweating out the correct image, the precise phrase, the turn of a thought ... simply sit down and write the god damned thing, throwing on the color and sound, shaking us alive with the force, the blackbirds, the wheat fields, the ear in the hand of the whore, sun, sun, sun, SUN!; let's make poetry the way we make love; let's make poetry and leave the laws and the rules and the morals to the churches and the politicians; let's make poetry the way we tilt the head back for the good liquor; let a drunken bum make his flame, and some day, Robert, I'll think of you, pretty and difficult, measuring vowels and adverbs, making rules instead of poetry. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Morals quotes by Carl Safina
#60. Ethics that focus on human interactions, morals that focus on humanity's relationship to a Creator, fall short of these things we've learned. They fail to encompass the big take-home message, so far, of a century and a half of biology and ecology: life is- more than anything else- a process; it creates, and depends on, relationships among energy, land, water, air, time and various living things. It's not just about human-to-human interaction; it's not just about spiritual interaction. It's about all interaction. We're bound with the rest of life in a network, a network including not just all living things but the energy and nonliving matter that flows through the living, making and keeping all of us alive as we make it alive. We can keep debating ideologies and sending entreaties toward heaven. But unless we embrace the fuller reality we're in- and reality's implications- we'll face big problems. #Quote by Carl Safina
Morals quotes by Kate Quinn
#61. But I'd far rather live without souls or morals than Parmesan. #Quote by Kate Quinn
Morals quotes by Toni Bentley
#62. Afterwards Isabelle often wondered if the moments themselves were greater or the memory of them. At least the memory did not pass, while the moments passed all too fast. Life whizzed by; she no longer had time to recollect it. Her notebooks to this day retain the story of her desperate attempt to hold together her self, her mind, her reason, her order, her morals. #Quote by Toni Bentley
Morals quotes by Timothy J. Keller
#63. Science is a magnificent material force, but it is not a teacher of morals. It can perfect machinery, but it adds no moral restraints to protect society from the misuse of the machine. . . . Science does not [and cannot] teach brotherly love."19 Secular, scientific reason is a great good, but if taken as the sole basis for human life, it will be discovered that there are too many things we need that it is missing. #Quote by Timothy J. Keller
Morals quotes by Michael Tianias
#64. It's all a matter of perception.
What one person deems to be important may be just as equally unimportant to another.
What one deems to be right may seem very wrong to someone else.
Your moral compass and values may not always be totally in sync with others you meet.
In the end it's all just your perception of how you choose to live your life and this may not always win you friends. In fact it may gain you some enemies.
Live your life how you choose to and if people don't like the way you do things then disagree if you must, but be nice & be respectful and then if you must, move on and leave it all behind you.
It's your life after all and only you can live it. Choose your path and set your compass then start walking. #Quote by Michael Tianias
Morals quotes by Josh Billings
#65. As a general thing, an individual who is neat in his person is neat in his morals. #Quote by Josh Billings
Morals quotes by John Dewey
#66. In laying hands upon the sacred ark of absolute permanency, in treating the forms that had been regarded as types of fixity and perfection as originating and passing away, the Origin of Species introduced a mode of thinking that in the end was bound to transform the logic of knowledge, and hence the treatment of morals, politics, and religion. #Quote by John Dewey
Morals quotes by Stacey Jay
#67. But maybe that isn't possible. Maybe the mind of the majority is always the healthy mind, simply by virtue of its numbers. Maybe it's the definition of madness to believe I'm right and everyone else if wrong, to find my thoughts rational and reasonable when almost the entire world finds them damaged and flawed. #Quote by Stacey Jay
Morals quotes by Bernard Lazare
#68. The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianizing, he Judiazizes, he destroys the Catholic or Protestant faith, he provokes indifference but he imposes his idea of the world of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins. He works at his age old task, the annilation of the religion of Christ. #Quote by Bernard Lazare
Morals quotes by Bryant McGill
#69. The reason America is in its death-throes is because America has lost moral authority. #Quote by Bryant McGill
Morals quotes by Christopher Hampton
#70. To seduce a woman famous for strict morals, religious fervor and the happiness of her marriage: what could possibly be more prestigious? #Quote by Christopher Hampton
Morals quotes by Fakeer Ishavardas
#71. I swear I've good morals. It's just that bad ones befriend me. I'm a friendly person, you know. But I will talk to them. Believe you me. #Quote by Fakeer Ishavardas
Morals quotes by Leslie Carroll
#72. Napoleon would always be extremely fastidious when it came to other people's morals, although his own were frequently questionable. #Quote by Leslie Carroll
Morals quotes by Forrest Curran
#73. Morality and righteousness is based on intent, love, and in giving; yet, how is it that we as humans have come to view the act of sex with a different set of arbitrary laws? Specifically pigeonholed as an act between man and women, and with righteousness based on an unsystematic number of people we have slept with; as a civilization we have come to bind society with a set of laws largely advantageous to a specific sex, with the minority heavily antagonized and chastised. The universe knows not what sexual morality is, only what is right and wrong. The same principles that dictate morals also command the virtues of sex. Is it with the right intent? Is it based on love? Is it based on giving? #Quote by Forrest Curran
Morals quotes by Tennessee Celeste Claflin
#74. Men of highest genius have been too frequently of extremely shaky morals. #Quote by Tennessee Celeste Claflin
Morals quotes by Ayn Rand
#75. The anti-mind is the anti-life. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Morals quotes by James Laver
#76. When women take off their corsets and heighten their skirts it always means high inflation and low morals. #Quote by James Laver
Morals quotes by Jonathan Haidt
#77. If our goal is to understand the world, to seek a deeper understanding of the world, our general lack of moral diversity here is going to make it harder. Because when people all share values, when people all share morals, they become a team. #Quote by Jonathan Haidt
Morals quotes by James S.A. Corey
#78. The moral high ground is a lovely place. It won't stop a missile, though. It won't alter the trajectory of a gauss round. #Quote by James S.A. Corey
Morals quotes by Herman Melville
#79. Your statement ... tells a very fine story; but pray, was not your stock a little heavy a while ago? downward tendency? Sort of low spirits among holders on the subject of that stock?"
"Yes, there was a depression. But how came it? who devised it? The 'bears,' sir. The depression of our stock was solely owing to the growling, the hypocritical growling, of the bears."
"How hypocritical?"
""Why, the most montrous of all hypocrites are these bears: hypocrites by inversion; hypocrites in the simulation of things dark instead of bright; souls that thrive, less upon depression, than the fiction of depression; professors of the wicked art of manufacturing depressions; spurious Jeremiahs; sham Heraclituses, who, the lugubrious day done, return, like sham Lazaruses among the beggars, to make merry over the gains got by their pretended sore heads--scoundrelly bears!"
"You are warm against these bears?"
"If I am, it is less from the remembrance of their stratagems as to our stock, than from the persuasion that these same destroyers of confidence, and gloomy philosophers of the stock-market, though false in themselves, are yet true types of most destroyer of confidence and gloomy philosophers, the world over. Fellows who, whether in stocks, politics, bread-stuffs, morals, metaphysics, religion--be it what it may--trump up their black panics in the naturally-quiet brightness, solely with a view to some sort of covert advantage. That corpse of calamity which t #Quote by Herman Melville
Morals quotes by Ronald K.L. Collins
#80. And then Ehrlich's climax: "Let there be light. Let there be honesty. Let there be no running from nonexistent destroyers of morals. Let there be honest understanding. In the end the four-letter words will not appear draped in glaring headlights, but will be submerged in the decentralization of small thinking in small minds. #Quote by Ronald K.L. Collins
Morals quotes by Aniruddha Sastikar
#81. Keep extending hand for friendship. Those alive will grip yours with theirs, while the morally dead will inflate; rubbing their own palms. #Quote by Aniruddha Sastikar
Morals quotes by Alphonsus Rodriguez
#82. It is a common teaching of the Saints that one of the principal means of leading a good and exemplary life is certainly modesty and the mortification of the eyes. Just as there is nothing better than modesty to preserve devotion in a soul and to edify one's neighbor, so too, there is nothing worse than immodesty and licentious glances to expose a person to the danger of becoming lax and loose in morals. #Quote by Alphonsus Rodriguez
Morals quotes by Mercedes Lackey
#83. Keth, power brings with it the need to make moral judgments; history proves that. You have no choice but to make those decisions. #Quote by Mercedes Lackey
Morals quotes by Carl Sagan
#84. Consider again that dot [Earth]. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there - on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Morals quotes by Peter Gay
#85. The truth is that the angels of anxiety - those overpowering forces for change in politics, economics, science, morals, and social policy - were at the same time agents for self-confidence. #Quote by Peter Gay
Morals quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#86. The value of science to a republican people, the security it gives to liberty by enlightening the minds of its citizens, the protection it affords against foreign power, the virtue it inculcates, the just emulation of the distinction it confers on nations foremost in it; in short, its identification with power, morals, order and happiness (which merits to it premiums of encouragement rather than repressive taxes), are considerations [that should] always [be] present and [bear] with their just weight. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Morals quotes by Billy Graham
#87. The first and second commandments are the only therapy the world has ever needed. "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind ... Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" [Matthew 22:37, 39 KJV]. #Quote by Billy Graham
Morals quotes by Darynda Jones
#88. Hey, I'm going to Super Dog for a quick bite and to pass along a message from a dead guy to his girlfriend. You should come with me."
"I can't go with you."
"Is it because of my questionable morals?"
"No, it's because it's three o'clock in the afternoon and I have to pick up Amber from school."
"Oh, right. So the morals thing doesn't bother you? #Quote by Darynda Jones
Morals quotes by Julie Berry
#89. A toast," Smooth Kitty cried, feeling almost giddy, "to self-government. Saint Etheldreda's School for Young Ladies will be run by young ladies from this point forward. Hear, hear!" Great applause.

"To independence!" added Pocked Louise. "No fussy old widows telling us when not to speak, and how to set the spoons when an Earl's niece comes to supper. And telling us to leave scientific experiment to the men." Teacup toasts in support of Louise.

"To freedom!" chimed in Disgraceful Mary Jane. "No curfews and evil eyes and lectures on morals and propriety." Loud, if nervous, cheering.

"To womankind," proclaimed Stout Alice. "Each of us girls free to be what she wishes to be, without glum and crotchety Placketts trying to make us into what we're not." Tremendous excitement.

"To sisterhood," said Dear Roberta, "and standing by each other, no matter what. #Quote by Julie Berry
Morals quotes by Michele Bachmann
#90. Morals are built on religious faith. Virtue is built on morality and influences a culture. #Quote by Michele Bachmann
Morals quotes by Steven Erikson
#91. Gather close, and let us speak of nasty little shits. Oh, come now, we are no strangers to the vicious demons in placid disguises, innocent eyes so wide, hidden minds so dark. Does evil exist? Is it a force, some deadly possession that slips into the unwary? Is it a thing separate and thus subject to accusation and blame, distinct from the one it has used? Does it flit from soul to soul, weaving its diabolical scheme in all the unseen places, snarling into knots tremulous fears and appalling opportunity, stark terrors and brutal self-interest? Or is the dread word nothing more than a quaint and oh so convenient encapsulation of all those traits distinctly lacking moral context, a sweeping generalization embracing all things depraved and breath takingly cruel, a word to define that peculiar glint in the eye - the voyeur to one's own delivery of horror, of pain and anguish and impossible grief?
Give the demon crimson scales, slashing talons. Tentacles and dripping poison. Three eyes and six slithering tongues. As it crouches there in the soul, its latest abode in an eternal succession of abodes, may every god kneel in prayer.
But really. Evil is nothing but a word, an objectification where no objectification is necessary. Cast aside this notion of some external agency as the source of inconceivable inhumanity - the sad truth is our possession of an innate proclivity towards indifference, towards deliberate denial of mercy, towards disengaging all that is moral within #Quote by Steven Erikson
Morals quotes by Sydney J. Harris
#92. The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts: to return love for hate, to include the excluded, and to say, I was wrong. #Quote by Sydney J. Harris
Morals quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#93. Morals aren't just for when it's easy, Anita. They aren't morals if you throw them aside every time it's convenient. #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton
Morals quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#94. How would that premise stand up if he examined it? That was probably why the Communists were always cracking down on Bohemiansism. When you were drunk or when you committed adultery you recognised your own personal fallability of that so mutable substitute for the apostles' creed, the party line. Down with Bohemianism, the sin of Majakowski. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Morals quotes by Laozi
#95. Give up your relentless moralizing, the continual pinpricks which pierce the skin of your fellows. The distinction between good and evil is the sickness of the mind. Give up your morals, and the people will regain a love of their fellows. #Quote by Laozi
Morals quotes by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
#96. [At the scene of a murder]
The cats' bloodthirst was normal; it was the way God had made them. They were hunters, they killed for food and to train their young
well maybe sometimes for sport. But this violent act by some unknown human had nothing to do with hunting
for a human to brutally maim one of the own kind out of rage or sadism or greed was, to Joe and Dulcie (the cats), a shocking degradation of the human condition. To imagine that vicious abandon in a human deeply distressed Dulcie; she did not like thinking about humans that way. #Quote by Shirley Rousseau Murphy
Morals quotes by Zachary Taylor
#97. The Bible is the best of books, and I wish it were in the hands of every one. It is indispensable to the safety and permanence of our institutions. A free government can not exist without religion and morals, and there cannot be morals without religion. Especially should the Bible be placed in the hands of the young. It is the best school book in the world. I would that all our people were brought up under the influence of that holy book. #Quote by Zachary Taylor
Morals quotes by T.J. Klune
#98. Now people are so concerned with virtue and innocence that they are blinded to the fact that when people get together, sex happens. We are held by societal standards that the body needs to be covered up and that we need to speak in prim and proper tones and words. Why, back in my day, clothing was optional! If you didn't want to wear trousers, you didn't have to! It was okay to go out and for everyone to see your( ... )dedication to freeing your spirit from the confines of rigid morals and ethics that had no bearing on who we were as individuals and as a whole. #Quote by T.J. Klune
Morals quotes by Henry Ford
#99. We now know that anything which is economically right is also morally right. There can be no conflict between good economics and good morals. #Quote by Henry Ford
Morals quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#100. Morals were too essential to the happiness of man, to be risked on the uncertain combinations of the head. Nature laid their foundation, therefore, in sentiment, not in science. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Morals quotes by Dave Hunt
#101. To reverence the impersonal creation instead of the personal God who created us is a perversion designed for escaping moral accountability to the Creator. God indicts those who worship the creation instead of its Creator (Rom 1:18-23); and warns of the corruption of morals and behavior which results. #Quote by Dave Hunt
Morals quotes by Ryan N.S. Topping
#102. Catholics believe that the Pope will never lead the Church into error, at least in his doctrinal formulations of matters of faith and morals. History well attests that popes can be corrupt, inept, and imprudent; but they have never - so Catholics claim - proposed as a matter of belief anything contrary to faith (CCC 890). Besides this, Catholics think there are purely logical reasons for why such a thing as a Magisterium is necessary. For the #Quote by Ryan N.S. Topping
Morals quotes by Marilyn Manson

Morals quotes by Simon Bolivar
#104. Morals and lights are our first necessities. #Quote by Simon Bolivar
Morals quotes by Donald Van De Mark
#105. Good, capable individuals unconsciously and consciously guard and nurture themselves and their spirits every day in all sorts of choices, large and small. Just as their lives are never static, they are rarely if ever fractured. Their morals and ethics are never cut off from the whole of their evolving beings. #Quote by Donald Van De Mark
Morals quotes by Ryan Daff
#106. You can't fundamentally change a person, and some actions are certainties, doomed to be repeated. If fate exists, then it pertains only to people. The fact that we are stubborn is often our undoing. #Quote by Ryan Daff
Morals quotes by Franz Werfel
#107. Everything in this world is primarily a matter of morals, and only very much later one of politics. #Quote by Franz Werfel
Morals quotes by Richard Dawkins
#108. I hope nobody is seriously suggesting that we get our morals from scripture because if we did we'd be stoning people for working on the Sabbath or switching on a light on the Sabbath. So the point is that you can find good bits of the Bible but you have to cherry-pick, you have reject the nasty bits and pick the nice bits. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Morals quotes by Anne Bronte
#109. Never! while heaven spares my reason,' replied I, snatching away the hand he had presumed to seize and press between his own. #Quote by Anne Bronte
Morals quotes by Ayn Rand
#110. Yes, this is an age of moral crisis. Yes, you are bearing punishment for your evil. But it is not man who is now on trial and it is not human nature that will take the blame. It is your moral code that's through, this time. Your moral code has reached its climax, the blind alley at the end of its course. And if you wish to go on living, what you now need is not to return to morality - you who have never known any - but to discover it. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Morals quotes by Michelle Alexander
#111. Today, a similar debate rages in black communities about the underlying causes of mass incarceration. While some argue that it is attributable primarily to racial bias and discrimination, others maintain that it is due to poor education, unraveling morals, and a lack of thrift and perseverance among the urban poor. Just as former slaves were viewed (even among some African Americans) as unworthy of full citizenship due to their lack of education and good morals, today similar arguments can be heard from black people across the political spectrum who believe that reform efforts should be focused on moral uplift and education for ghetto dwellers, rather than challenging the system of mass incarceration itself. #Quote by Michelle Alexander
Morals quotes by Washington Irving
#112. This, to a busy mind like his, was a truly deplorable situation; and had he not been a man of inflexible morals and regular habits, there would have been great danger of his taking to politics or drinking - both which pernicious vices we daily see men driven to by mere spleen and idleness. #Quote by Washington Irving
Morals quotes by Dolly Parton
#113. We just seem to have lost all our morals and principles and values these days. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Morals quotes by Kindle Alexander
#114. The minute that guy walked inside the front doors, Cody sat back and just stared. He was tall, dark, and exceedingly handsome with all that brawn and a killer smile. When he'd come to the bar and focused on Cody, training those amber eyes his way, Cody hardened to painful degrees. It had taken everything to keep himself nonchalant because that same man who currently rubbed about seventy-five percent of his body against Cody was his wet dream walking. Someone that could make him lose his mind and quite possibly his morals just to get a single taste. #Quote by Kindle Alexander
Morals quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#115. Anyway, there were thousands of Kantoreks, all of them convinced that they were acting for the best, in a way that was the most comfortable for themselves.
But as far as we are concerned, that is the very root of their moral bankruptcy. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Morals quotes by Sam Harris
#116. ... if we lost all our hard-won knowledge and all our archives, and all our ethics and morals, in some Marquez-like fit of collective amnesia, and had to reconstruct everything essential from scratch, it is difficult to imagine at what point we would need to remind or reassure ourselves that Jesus was born of a virgin. #Quote by Sam Harris
Morals quotes by Billy Sunday
#117. You can't raise the standard of women's morals by raising their pay envelope. It lies deeper than that. #Quote by Billy Sunday
Morals quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#118. Of a real, true contract, on whatsoever subject, there is no vestige in Rousseau's book. To give an
exact idea of his theory, I cannot do better than compare it with a commercial agreement, in which
the names of the parties, the nature and value of the goods, products and services involved, the
conditions of quality, delivery, price, reimbursement, everything in fact which constitutes the
material of contracts, is omitted, and nothing is mentioned but penalties and jurisdictions.

"Indeed, Citizen of Geneva, you talk well. But before holding forth about the sovereign and the
prince, about the policeman and the judge, tell me first what is my share of the bargain? What? You
expect me to sign an agreement in virtue of which I may be prosecuted for a thousand
transgressions, by municipal, rural, river and forest police, handed over to tribunals, judged,
condemned for damage, cheating, swindling, theft, bankruptcy, robbery, disobedience to the laws of
the State, offence to public morals, vagabondage,--and in this agreement I find not a word of either
my rights or my obligations, I find only penalties!

"But every penalty no doubt presupposes a duty, and every duty corresponds to a right. Where then
in your agreement are my rights and duties? What have I promised to my fellow citizens? What
have they promised to me? Show it to me, for without that, your penalties are but excesses of
power, your la #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Morals quotes by Jean-Paul Marat
#119. No, liberty is not made for us: we are too ignorant, too vain, too presumptious, too cowardly, too vile, too corrupt too attached to rest and to pleasure, too much slaves to fortune to ever know the true price of liberty. We boast of being free! To show how much we have become slaves, it is enough just to cast a glance on the capital and examine the morals of its inhabitants. #Quote by Jean-Paul Marat
Morals quotes by Adhish Mazumder
#120. There is a noticeable symphony being played around the world today. That symphony speaks of the independent, unorthodox, proud women. Yes, it is the International Women's Day! It is the day to celebrate the women in your life.

In my life I have never believed in a particular day to celebrate women though, but a date is necessary rather customary to remind you of their contributions in your life lest you forget it.

So here's wishing all those strong women who competed in a man's world, defeating them and breaking the taboos to earn the place which was rightfully theirs from the start but usurped in the past by manly morals and ego, a very- HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY! #Quote by Adhish Mazumder
Morals quotes by David Beckham
#121. My parents were always very strict, and they gave me the right beliefs in how to treat people. It was very strict and all about morals - I try to pass that on to my own children. #Quote by David Beckham

#122. SLUT (noun): A woman with the morals of a man #Quote by Eric Jerome Dickey
Morals quotes by William Patten
#123. We shall use the terms morality, behavior, conduct, or constructive action in the same broad way. It may sound strange to speak of the morals of an atom, or of the way in which a molecule conducts itself. But in the last analysis, science can draw no fundamental distinction between the conduct of an animal, a bullet, or a freshman, although there may be more unknown factors involved in one case than in the other. #Quote by William Patten
Morals quotes by Hunter S. Thompson
#124. Richard Nixon was an evil man - evil in a way that only those who believe in the physical reality of the Devil can understand it. He was utterly without ethics or morals or any bedrock sense of decency. #Quote by Hunter S. Thompson
Morals quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough

Morals quotes by William Alexander Percy

Morals quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#128. We know enough to know that all of this is not quite right. And we know enough to know that settling for what's not quite right is quite wrong. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Morals quotes by George Sand
#129. In times when evil comes because men misunderstand and hate one another, it is the mission of the artist to praise sweetness, confidence, and friendship, and so to remind men, hardened or discouraged, that pure morals, tender sentiments, and primitive justice still exist, or at least can exist, in this world. #Quote by George Sand
Morals quotes by Emma Goldman
#130. Corruption of politics has nothing to do with the morals, or the laxity of morals, of various political personalities. Its cause is altogether a material one. #Quote by Emma Goldman
Morals quotes by Tamsin Egerton
#131. Guinevere is just head over heels and doesn't know how to handle these new emotions that she's feeling, as a young woman. Unfortunately, she can't reign it all in, all the time. And, even though she tries to do the right thing and be the good girlfriend and have her morals, she slips up a little bit. #Quote by Tamsin Egerton
Morals quotes by James Larkin
#132. I have raised the morals and sobriety of the people. #Quote by James Larkin
Morals quotes by Mark Twain
#133. It has always been a peculiarity of the human race that it keeps two sets of morals in stock-the private and the real, and the public and the artificial. #Quote by Mark Twain
Morals quotes by Joseph Beuys
#134. I am interested in the creativity of the criminal attitude because I recognize in it the existence of a special condition of crazy creativity. A creativity without morals fired only by the energy of freedom and the rejection of all codes and laws. For freedom rejects the dictated roles of the law and of the imposed order and for this reason is isolated. #Quote by Joseph Beuys
Morals quotes by Fisher Ames
#135. Our liberty depends on our education, our laws, and habits ... it is founded on morals and religion, whose authority reigns in the heart, and on the influence all these produce on public opinion before that opinion governs rulers. #Quote by Fisher Ames
Morals quotes by J.C. Wickhart
#136. Typically in a world that has shunned goodness and morals, the villain is the hero. #Quote by J.C. Wickhart
Morals quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#137. People want to be amused, not preached at, you know. Morals don't sell nowadays. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Morals quotes by Thomas Hardy
#138. When I want a broad-minded opinion for general enlightenment, distinct from special advice, I never go to a man who deals in the subject professionally. So I like the parson's opinion on law, the lawyer's on doctoring, the doctor's on business, and my business-man's ... on morals. #Quote by Thomas Hardy
Morals quotes by John Lydon
#139. I have values. But morals are Christian. There's no religion here. Values. Don't hurt when you don't need to, but don't let anybody step over that line - it's an invisible line, but it's respect for somebody's space. #Quote by John Lydon
Morals quotes by Honor Raconteur
#140. It is not what a man is capable of doing, but what he chooses to do that is important. #Quote by Honor Raconteur
Morals quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#141. Customs, morals--is there a difference? #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein
Morals quotes by Craig D. Lounsbrough
#142. I want to stand on the foundation of ethics and morals when the world around me would assault that foundation with all of its collective might, and in the standing I want to stand on the truth that that foundation will stand long after everything that has assailed it has itself has ceased to stand. #Quote by Craig D. Lounsbrough
Morals quotes by Haruki Murakami
#143. Someone once said that nothing costs more and yields less benefit than revenge," Aomame said.
"Winston Churchill. As I recall it, though, he was making excuses for the British Empire's budget deficits. It has no moral significance. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Morals quotes by Sui Ishida
#144. We can't crush evil with morals. We are justice. We are morality. #Quote by Sui Ishida
Morals quotes by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
#145. It is, the most beautiful truth in morals that we have no such thing as a distinct or divided interest from our race. In their welfare is ours, and by choosing the broadest paths to effect their happiness we choose the surest and the shortest to our own. #Quote by Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton
Morals quotes by Osamu Dazai
#146. Now, even when I make an outfit for myself, I wonder what other people will think. The truth is that I secretly love what seems to be my own individuality, and I hope I always will, but fully embodying it is another matter. I always want everyone to think I am a good girl. Whenever I am around a lot of people, it is amazing how obsequious I can be. I fib and chatter away, saying things I don't want to or mean in any way. I feel like it is to my advantage to do so. I hate it. I hope for a revolution in ethics and morals. Then, my obsequiousness and this need to plod through life according to others' expectations would simply dissolve. Oh, #Quote by Osamu Dazai
Morals quotes by Joseph Joubert
#147. All luxury corrupts either the morals or the taste. #Quote by Joseph Joubert
Morals quotes by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
#148. That in morals, as in all other branches of knowledge, the gravest errors are the dogmas of science; that, even in works of justice, to be mistaken is a privilege which ennobles man; and that whatever philosophical merit may attach to me is infinitely small. To name a thing is easy: the difficulty is to discern it before its appearance. In giving expression to the last stage of an idea, - an idea which permeates all minds, which to-morrow will be proclaimed by another if I fail to announce it to-day, - I can claim no merit save that of priority of utterance. Do we eulogize the man who first perceives the dawn? #Quote by Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
Morals quotes by Alexandra Adornetto
#149. Teenagers have a natural curiosity and are keen to clock up experiences. What they need to be wary of is that some experiences may erode their sense of self and lead to a fragmentation of morals. #Quote by Alexandra Adornetto
Morals quotes by B.R. Ambedkar
#150. The physical and intellectual effects of purdah are nothing as compared with its effects on morals. The origin of purdah lies of course in the deep-rooted suspicion of sexual appetites in both sexes and the purpose is to check them by segregating the sexes. But far from achieving the purpose, purdah has adversely affected the morals of Muslim men. Owing to purdah a Muslim has no contact with any woman outside those who belong to his own household. Even #Quote by B.R. Ambedkar
Morals quotes by William Mulvihill
#151. For modern man, survival meant mental change. The stubborn died as martyrs; the fanatic and the philosopher perished in the face of sudden change. To survive now one had to be pliable; one had to adjust to new codes and ideals and morals. The mind had to change. #Quote by William Mulvihill
Morals quotes by Harper Lee
#152. Jean Louise's gleanings of adult morals and mores to date were few, but enough: it was possible to have a baby without being married, she knew that. Until today she neither knew nor cared how, because the subject was uninteresting, but if someone had a baby without being married, her family was plunged into deep disgrace. She had heard Alexandra go on at length about Disgraces to Families: disgrace involved being sent to Mobile and shut up in a Home away from decent people. One's family was never able to hold up their heads again. #Quote by Harper Lee
Morals quotes by John Calvin
#153. For nothing is more dangerous than to live where the public license of crime prevails; yea, there is no pestilence so destructive, as that corruption of morals, which is opposed neither by laws nor judgments, nor any other remedies. #Quote by John Calvin
Morals quotes by Immanuel Kant
#154. All rational knowledge is either material, and concerns some objects, or formal, and is occupied only with the form of understanding and reason itself and with the universal rules of thinking, without regard to distinctions among objects.
formal philosophy is called logic. Material philosophy, however, which has to do with definite object objects and the laws to which they are subject, is divided into two parts. This is because these laws are either laws of nature or laws of freedom. The science of the former is called physics, and that of the latter ethics. The former is also called theory of nature and the latter theory of morals. #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Morals quotes by Jonathan Swift
#155. Regard to good morals than to great abilities; for, since government is necessary to mankind, they believe, that the common size of human understanding is fitted to some station or other; and that Providence never intended to make the management of public affairs a mystery to be comprehended only by a few persons of sublime #Quote by Jonathan Swift
Morals quotes by Confucius

Morals quotes by Richard Dawkins
#160. Jesus was not content to derive his ethics from the scriptures of his upbringing. He explicitly departed from them. [ ... ] Since a principal thesis of this chapter is that we do not, and should not, derive our morals from scripture, Jesus has to be honoured as a model for that very thesis. #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Morals quotes by Jamaica Kincaid
#161. Everybody knew that men have no morals, that they do not know how to behave, that they do not know how to treat other people. It was why men like laws so much; it was why they had to invent such things-they need a guide. When they are not sure what to do, they consult this guide. If the guide gives them advice they don't like, they change the guide. #Quote by Jamaica Kincaid
Morals quotes by Gerald F. Lieberman

Morals quotes by Yolanda Adams
#163. I didn't grow up in one of those restrictive Christian households where you couldn't do this or that. We were brought up with a great collection of good morals and good values, but we also had fun. We'd go to church on Sunday, but then have ice cream, roller skate or play in the park afterwards. #Quote by Yolanda Adams
Morals quotes by Herbert Samuel, 1st Viscount Samuel
#164. Without doubt the greatest injury of all was done by basing morals on myth. For, sooner or later, myth is recognized for what it is, and disappears. Then morality loses the foundation on which it has been built. #Quote by Herbert Samuel, 1st Viscount Samuel
Morals quotes by Brandon Sanderson
#165. The truth is, most people who do what you'd call 'wrong' do it for what they call 'right' reasons. #Quote by Brandon Sanderson
Morals quotes by David Hume
#166. There has been a controversy started of late, much better worth examination, concerning the general foundation of Morals; whether they be derived from Reason, or from Sentiment; whether we attain the knowledge of them by a chain of argument and induction, or by an immediate feeling and finer internal sense; whether, like all sound judgement of truth and falsehood, they should be the same to every rational intelligent being; or whether, like the perception of beauty and deformity, they be founded entirely on the particular fabric and constitution of the human species. #Quote by David Hume
Morals quotes by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
#167. Open your arms to change, but don't let go of your values. #Quote by H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Morals quotes by Herbert Hoover
#168. Three qualities of greatness stood out in Woodrow Wilson. He was a man of staunch morals. He was more than just an idealist; he was the personification of the heritage of idealism of the American people. He brought spiritual concepts to the peace table. He was a born crusader. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Morals quotes by Will Durant
#169. Ultimately there are but three systems of ethics, three conceptions of the ideal character and the moral life.

One is that of Buddha and Jesus, which stresses the feminine virtues, considers all men to be equally precious, resists evil only by returning good, identifies virtue with love, and inclines in politics to unlimited democracy.

Another is the ethic of Machiavelli and Nietzsche, which stresses the masculine virtues, accepts the inequality of men, relishes the risks of combat and conquest and rule, identifies virtue with power, and exalts an hereditary aristocracy.

A third, the ethic of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle, denies the universal applicability of either the feminine or the masculine virtues; considers that only the informed and mature mind can judge, according to diverse circumstance, when love should rule, and when power; identifies virtue, therefore, with intelligence; and advocates a varying mixture of aristocracy and democracy in government. #Quote by Will Durant
Morals quotes by John Spence
#170. When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it's probably time to change the people around you. #Quote by John Spence
Morals quotes by Nova Ren Suma
#171. Ruby's stories didn't have morals. They meant one thing in the light and one thing in the dark and another thing entirely when she was wearing sunglasses. #Quote by Nova Ren Suma
Morals quotes by Ken Wilber
#172. Sought a world philosophy-or an integral philosophy-that would believably weave together the many pluralistic contexts of science, morals, aesthetics, Eastern as well as Western philosophy, and the world's great wisdom traditions. Not on the level of details-that is finitely impossible; but on the level of orienting generalizations: a way to suggest that the world really is one, undivided, whole, and related to itself in every way: a holistic philosophy for a holistic Kosmos, a plausible Theory of Everything. #Quote by Ken Wilber
Morals quotes by George Zebrowski
#173. All attempts at law, all religion, all ethical norms might be nothing more than attempts by the weak to restrain the strong. Then, within the law, arise the new strong, who subvert the law for their own ends of power and family interest, leaving the old strong outside their circle to pursue the waiting possibilities which they call crime. The weak, the cowardly, the decent ones, live between these groups. #Quote by George Zebrowski
Morals quotes by Nicki Minaj

Morals quotes by Hanya Yanagihara

Morals quotes by Robert A. Heinlein
#176. In terms of morals there is no such thing as 'state.' Just men. Individuals. Each responsible for his own acts. #Quote by Robert A. Heinlein

Morals quotes by Ayn Rand
#179. Man has been called a rational being, but rationality is a matter of choice - and the alternative his nature offers him is: rational being or suicidal animal. Man has to be man - by choice; he has to hold his life as a value - by choice; he has to learn to sustain it - by choice; he has to discover the values it requires and practice his virtues - by choice.
A code of values accepted by choice is a code of morality. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Morals quotes by David Josiah Brewer
#180. I could show how largely our laws and customs are based upon the laws of Moses and the teachings of Christ; how constantly the Bible is appealed to as the guide of life and the authority in questions of morals ... Add a volume of unofficial declaration to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation. #Quote by David Josiah Brewer
Morals quotes by Mark Twain
#181. Always do what is right. It will gratify half of mankind and astound the other. #Quote by Mark Twain
Morals quotes by Debra Holland
#182. She's better off without you." Livingston narrowed his eyes. "I see which way the land lies. If I didn't trust Miss Hamilton's superior values and morals - " Nick's fist snaked out, aiming for the banker's nose. Livingston barely had time to turn his head before Nick's knuckles connected with the man's cheek, sending him stumbling back against the wall. The seascape crashed to the ground. With shock and disbelief in his eyes, Livingston slid to the floor, cradling the rapidly forming red mark on his face. Nick shook his head in disgust. Pity he hadn't broken the man's nose. #Quote by Debra Holland
Morals quotes by Aleister Crowley
#183. This is my real bed-rock objection to the eastern systems. They decry all manly virtue as dangerous and wicked, and they look upon Nature as evil. True enough, everything is evil relatively to Adonai; for all stain is impurity. A bee's swarm is evil - inside one's clothes. "Dirt is matter in the wrong place." It is dirt to connect sex with statuary, morals with art.
Only Adonai, who is in a sense the True Meaning of everything, cannot defile any idea. This is a hard saying, though true, for nothing of course is dirtier than to try and use Adonai as a fig-leaf for one's shame.
To seduce women under the pretense of religion is unutterable foulness; though both adultery and religion are themselves clean. To mix jam and mustard is a messy mistake. #Quote by Aleister Crowley
Morals quotes by Noora Ahmed Alsuwaidi
#184. In a harsh, cruel world where success is only measured by financial income, the higher moral values are getting lost and forgotten. No one counts your efforts, good deeds, struggle, and giving unless if these deeds make money. Money nowadays, unfortunately, is the fake God everyone follows. If you make solid profits you are a human being worth respect, but if you are struggling and working so hard in life, yet your struggle and good deeds don't make you the money you need, you only worth neglecting.
For all those who struggle to live another day by doing the right thing, hang in there, God is with you and better days are coming too by God's will. #Quote by Noora Ahmed Alsuwaidi
Morals quotes by K. Bromberg
#185. Compromising choices, preferences, and wants to be in a relationship are one thing, compromising who you are - the things ingrained in you, your beliefs, and your morals - are non-negotiable. #Quote by K. Bromberg
Morals quotes by Genevieve Gerard
#186. Today, I encourage you to consider your life, your values, and your relationships and consider who you are by the test of what you do. I invite you to re-affirm the values you hold dear and decide today to stand up for what you believe is right and good in the world. #Quote by Genevieve Gerard
Morals quotes by Immanuel Kant
#187. Have the courage to use your own reason- That is the motto of enlightenment.
"Foundations of the Metaphysics of
Morals" (1785) #Quote by Immanuel Kant
Morals quotes by Graham Greene
#188. He disapproved, he didn't believe in girls drinking, he was full of the conventions of a generation older than himself. Of course one drank oneself, one fornicated, but one didn't lie with a friend's sister, and 'decent' girls were never squiffy. #Quote by Graham Greene
Morals quotes by Marilyn Manson
#189. There are people accusing me that I'm sick, that I'm a danger to morals, western civilization and basically everything under the sun. And they've got these wild stories about me, completely off the wall, completely untrue. They thought them up and it makes you wonder what goes on in their brain, but of course, they don't consider themselves sick. They think they're normal because they don't dress like I do. #Quote by Marilyn Manson
Morals quotes by Alan W. Watts
#190. Yet again, the more you strive for some kind of perfection or mastery - in
morals, in art or in spirituality - the more you see that you are playing a
rarified and lofty form of the old ego-game, and that your attainment of
any height is apparent to yourself and to others only by contrast with
someone else's depth or failure. #Quote by Alan W. Watts
Morals quotes by Renee Rose
#191. What about vampires?" He smiled bitterly. "We're all evil, love." "No," Sasha said softly. "Not you. You might have loose morals, but you are not evil. #Quote by Renee Rose
Morals quotes by Horace Greeley
#192. Washington is not a place to live in. The rents are high, the food is bad, the dust is disgusting and the morals are deplorable. Go West, young man, go West and grow up with the country. #Quote by Horace Greeley
Morals quotes by Edmund Burke
#193. History consists, for the greater part, of the miseries brought upon the world by pride, ambition, avarice, revenge, lust, sedition, hypocrisy, ungoverned zeal, and all the train of disorderly appetites, which shake the public with the same
- "troublous storms that toss
The private state, and render life unsweet."
These vices are the causes of those storms. Religion, morals, laws, prerogatives, privileges, liberties, rights of men, are the pretexts. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Morals quotes by Young Jeezy
#194. I don't just do music for the clubs, I do music for the struggle. I do music for everyday niggas, the kids who ain't got no sense of direction. I'm trying to restore some of the morals back into the game, as far as the street. #Quote by Young Jeezy
Morals quotes by Ayn Rand
#195. There is a morality of reason, a morality proper to man, and Man's Life is its standard of value.
All that which is proper to the life of a rational being is the good; all that which destroys it is the evil. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Morals quotes by Cecy Robson
#196. Shayna wasn't so lucky. She waved as she passed her. "Looking good, Mrs. Mancuso."
No. She wasn't. Mrs. Mancuso's neck skin dragged a path between the tulips. "Go to church and get some morals, hussy! #Quote by Cecy Robson
Morals quotes by Osip Mandelstam
#197. What street is this?
Mandelstam Street.
What a crooked name!
No matter how you twist it,
It doesn't come out straight.

Nothing in him was stuck on right,
His morals sure weren't lily white,
Which is why this street
Or, better yet, this slum
Is called, correctly,
Mandelstam. #Quote by Osip Mandelstam
Morals quotes by Mark Twain
#198. Hardly a man in the world has an opinion upon morals, politics or religion which he got otherwise than through his associations and sympathies. Broadly speaking, there are none but corn-pone opinions. And broadly speaking, Corn-Pone stands for Self-Approval. Self-approval is acquired mainly from the approval of other people. The result is Conformity. #Quote by Mark Twain
Morals quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#199. To train a citizen is to train a critic. The whole point of education is that it should give a man abstract and eternal standards, by which he can judge material and fugitive conditions. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Morals quotes by Albert Einstein
#200. The most important human endeavor is the striving for morality in our actions. Our inner balance and even our very existence depend on it. Only morality in our actions can give beauty and dignity to life. #Quote by Albert Einstein
