Objective Morality quotes by Joni Mitchell
#1. If you're smart or rich or lucky
Maybe you'll beat the laws of man
But the inner laws of spirit
And the outer laws of nature
No man can #Quote by Joni Mitchell
Objective Morality quotes by E. O. Wilson
#2. Human beings function better if they are deceived by their genes into thinking that there is a disinterested objective morality binding upon them, which all should obey. #Quote by E. O. Wilson
Objective Morality quotes by Jon Morrison
#3. Think about goodness like you think about gravity. Whether or not you believe in gravity, it is still there. Every day you are affected by gravity regardless of how well you understand the physics of it. In this chapter I am asking whether objective morality is something like gravity operating in accordance with the laws of the universe. Are there some things that are always right and some things that are always wrong? Put another way, has there ever been a time in history where it would have been acceptable for Hitler to kill over five million Jews? Or is mass murder always wrong no matter when or where you are? If mass murder is always wrong, then it turns out that objective moral values and duties do exist. #Quote by Jon Morrison

Objective Morality quotes by Voltaire
#5. Always beware of turning religion into metaphysics: Morality is its essence. #Quote by Voltaire
Objective Morality quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#6. One time I told her that she reminded me of that charming tale, the one with the red shoes."
Helen had always hated that story, in which a little girl who had dared to wear red shoes to her confirmation had been doomed to dance in them until she died. "You're referring to the one by Hans Christian Andersen? It's a morality tale about the wages of sin, is it not?"
His smile faded, and his gaze returned to hers, now appraising rather than dismissive. "I confess, I don't recall the moral of the story."
"No doubt it's been a long time since you've read it." Helen made her face into the inscrutable mask that had always annoyed the twins and provoked them to call her a sphinx. "The red shoes become instruments of death, after a girl yields to temptation. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Objective Morality quotes by Madeline Miller
#7. There is no honour in betraying your friends. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Objective Morality quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#8. Our whole life is startlingly moral. There is never an instant's truce between virtue and vice. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Objective Morality quotes by Isaac Marion
#9. We realized that the closest we'd ever get to objective truth was the belief of the majority, so we enthroned the majority and ignored all other voices. #Quote by Isaac Marion
Objective Morality quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#10. When poverty is more disgraceful than even vice, is not morality cut to the quick? #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Objective Morality quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#11. Will any man despise me? Let him see to it. But I will see to it that I may not be found doing or saying anything that deserves to be despised. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Objective Morality quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#12. Suffering is not objective. It depends largely on
the way you perceive. There are things that cause
you to suffer but do not cause others to suffer. There are things that bring you joy but do not bring others joy. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Objective Morality quotes by Albert Einstein
#13. An autocratic system of coercion, in my opinion soon degenerates. For force always attract men of low morality. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Objective Morality quotes by Tullian Tchividjian
#14. Moralism doesn't produce morality; it produces immorality. #Quote by Tullian Tchividjian
Objective Morality quotes by Thomas Paine
#15. The Bill of Rights should contain the general principles of natural and civil liberty. It should be to a community what the eternal laws and obligations of morality are to the conscience. It should be unalterable by any human power ... #Quote by Thomas Paine
Objective Morality quotes by Russell L. Ackoff
#16. Man seeks objectives that enable him to convert the attainment of every goal into a means for the attainment of a new and more desirable goal. The ultimate objective in such a sequence cannot be obtainable; otherwise its attainment would put an end to the process. An end that satisfies these conditions is an ideal… Thus the formulation and pursuit of ideals is a means by which to put meaning and significance into his life and into the history of which he is part. #Quote by Russell L. Ackoff
Objective Morality quotes by Rajneesh
#17. Vegetarianism has nothing to do with religion: it is something basically scientific. It has nothing to do with morality, but it has much to do with aesthetics. It is unbelievable that a man of sensitivity, awareness, understanding, love, can eat meat. And if he can eat meat then something is missing he is still unconscious somewhere of what he is doing, unconscious of the implications of his acts. #Quote by Rajneesh
Objective Morality quotes by Willard F. Harley
#18. Your objective of being in love with each other will require both you and your spouse to focus your attention on the other's most important needs. #Quote by Willard F. Harley
Objective Morality quotes by Edward O. Wilson
#19. Preferring a search for objective reality over revelation is another way of satisfying religious hunger. #Quote by Edward O. Wilson
Objective Morality quotes by Ernie J Zelinski
#20. Always feeling rushed is no way for a prosperity-minded individual to live. The objective of life is not to get through it as fast as possible. #Quote by Ernie J Zelinski
Objective Morality quotes by Paul Laffoley
#21. The main thesis of mind-physics holds that consciousness and matter are both manifestations of a more primary entity, and that the processes of manifestation exhibit equivalent invariances for both consciousness and matter. When the program for mind-physics is complete the subject-object dichotomy of modal logic, the polarity of concept-percept, and the antagonism between morality and technology will all come to an end. Then the non-repeatable experiment will be understood to be more primary than the traditional repeatable experiment. #Quote by Paul Laffoley
Objective Morality quotes by R.J. Rushdoony
#22. Segregation or separation is thus a basic principle of Biblical Law with respect to religion and morality. Every attempt to destroy this principle is an effort to reduce society to its lowest common denominator. #Quote by R.J. Rushdoony
Objective Morality quotes by Apolo Ohno
#23. I never had one day that I didn't want to be on the ice, because I always had an objective for that day. I had a rigorous plan and schedule in place that I had to adhere to. It was a step-by-step process of slowly but surely inching toward the Olympic Games and using every day as a series of goals to be accomplished. #Quote by Apolo Ohno
Objective Morality quotes by John Capecci And Timothy Cage
#24. You may have come to advocacy on your own, it may be part of your job or you may have been asked to "put a face" on a campaign by serving as its spokesperson. You may be acting as a lone crusader or as part of a larger advocacy effort. Either way, you share an objective with all other advocates: to have your story move audiences from apathy to empathy to action. #Quote by John Capecci And Timothy Cage
Objective Morality quotes by Nicholas Gane
#25. ... It is not possible, says Weber, to confer the objective validity of facts on the basis of a value-judgement; and second, it is not possible to judge the value of values through the use of scientific reason. This leads him to maintain a distinction between science and ethics, the former dealing with questions of fact, the latter with questions of value. #Quote by Nicholas Gane
Objective Morality quotes by Noel Coward
#26. It's discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit. #Quote by Noel Coward
Objective Morality quotes by Ousmane Sembene
#27. If a man like that is killed, there is always another to take his place. That is not the important thing. But to act so that no man dares to strike you because he knows you speak the truth, to act so that you can no longer be arrested because you are asking for the right to live, to act so that all of this will end, both here and elsewhere; that is what should be in your thoughts. That is what you must explain to others, so that you will never again be forced to bow down before anyone, but also so that no one shall be forced to bow down before you. It was to tell you this that I asked you to come, because hatred must not dwell with you. #Quote by Ousmane Sembene
Objective Morality quotes by Nisargadatta Maharaj
#28. Your expectation of something unique and dramatic, of some wonderful explosion, is merely hindering and delaying your Self Realization. You are not to expect an explosion, for the explosion has already happened - at the moment when you were born, when you realized yourself as Being-Knowing-Feeling. There is only one mistake you are making: you take the inner for the outer and the outer for the inner. What is in you, you take to be outside you and what is outside, you take to be in you. The mind and feelings are external, but you take them to be intimate. You believe the world to be objective, while it is entirely a projection of your psyche. That is the basic confusion and no new explosion will set it right! You have to think yourself out of it. There is no other way. #Quote by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Objective Morality quotes by Henry Mayhew
#29. There is a tone of morality throughout the rural districts of England, which is unhappily wanting in the large towns and the centres of particular manufactures. #Quote by Henry Mayhew
Objective Morality quotes by Jiddu Krishnamurti
#30. We have created society and that society has conditioned us. Our minds are tortured and heavily conditioned by a morality which is not moral; the morality of the society is immorality, beacuse society admits and encourages violence, greed, competition, ambition and so on, which are essentially immoral. There is no love, consideration, affection, tenderness, and the 'moral respectability' of the society is utterly disorderly.
A mind that has been trained for thousand of years to accept, to obey and conform, cannot possibly be highly sensitive and therefore highly virtuous. We are caught in this trap. #Quote by Jiddu Krishnamurti
Objective Morality quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#31. All men thirst to confess their crimes more than tired beasts thirst for water; but they naturally object to confessing them while other people, who have also committed the same crimes, sit by and laugh at them. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Objective Morality quotes by Milan Kundera
#32. A novel that does not uncover a hitherto unknown segment of existence is immoral. Knowledge is the novel's only morality. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Objective Morality quotes by Jeremiah Moss
#33. Let's not delude ourselves with fantasies of objectivity. How can anyone be objective about New York? It's not a souvenir snow globe or a designer coffee table. It's a living thing, an unwieldy ecosystem filled with many smaller ecosystems, all interdependent, making up the complex, multicellular organism of the city. #Quote by Jeremiah Moss
Objective Morality quotes by Chinua Achebe
#34. What I can say is that it was clear to many of us that an indigenous African literary renaissance was overdue. A major objective was to challenge stereotypes, myths, and the image of ourselves and our continent, and to recast them through stories- prose, poetry, essays, and books for our children. That was my overall goal. #Quote by Chinua Achebe
Objective Morality quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#35. Zarathustra, the first to recognize that the optimist is just as degenerate as the pessimist though perhaps more detrimental says: "Good men never speak the truth. The Good preach of false shores and false security. You were born and bred in the lies of the good. Through the good everything has become false and twisted down to the very roots". Fortunately the world is not built solely to serve good natured herd animals their little happiness ; to desire everybody to become a "good man", "a herd animal", blue-eyed, benevolent, "a beautiful soul" - or, as Herbert Spencer wished - altruistic, would mean robbing existence of its great character, to castrate mankind and reduce humanity to a sort of wretched Chinadom. And this some have tried to do! It is precisely this that men have called morality. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Objective Morality quotes by Kimberly Giles
#36. Claritypoint: Your life is a perfect and divine process of learning and growth. You are safe in this process because the objective is for your good. Every situation in your life is there to serve you in some way. #Quote by Kimberly Giles
Objective Morality quotes by Bryan Sykes
#37. As this book will show, objectively defined races simply do not exist. Even Arthur Mourant realized that fact nearly fifty years ago, when he wrote: 'Rather does a study of blood groups show a heterogeneity in the proudest nation and support the view that the races of the present day are but temporary integrations in the constant process of ... mixing that marks the history of every living species.' The temptation to classify the human species into categories which have no objective basis is an inevitable but regrettable consequence of the gene frequency system when it is taken too far. For several years the study of human genetics got firmly bogged down in the intellectually pointless (and morally dangerous) morass of constructing ever more detailed classifications of human population groups. #Quote by Bryan Sykes
Objective Morality quotes by John Kennedy Toole
#38. I suspect that beneath your offensively and vulgarly effeminate façade there may be a soul of sorts. Have you read widely in Boethius?"
"Who? Oh, heavens no. I never even read newspapers."
"Then you must begin a reading program immediately so that you may understand the crises of our age," Ignatius said solemnly. "Begin with the late Romans, including Boethius, of course. Then you should dip rather extensively into early Medieval. You may skip the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. That is mostly dangerous propaganda. Now that I think of it, you had better skip the Romantics and the Victorians, too. For the contemporary period, you should study some selected comic books."
"You're fantastic."
"I recommend Batman especially, for he tends to transcend the abysmal society in which he's found himself. His morality is rather rigid, also. I rather respect Batman. #Quote by John Kennedy Toole
Objective Morality quotes by Shane Bauer
#39. We take comfort in the notion of an unbridgeable gulf between good and evil, but maybe we should understand, as Zimbardo's work suggested, that evil is incremental - something we are all capable of, given the right circumstances. #Quote by Shane Bauer
Objective Morality quotes by Thomas Nagel
#40. To put it schematically, the claim "Everything is subjective" must be nonsense, for it would itself have to be either subjective or objective. But it can't be objective, since in that case it would be false if true. And it can't be subjective, because then it would not rule out any objective claim, including the claim that it is objectively false. #Quote by Thomas Nagel
Objective Morality quotes by Thomas B. Macaulay
#41. The real security of Christianity is to be found in its benevolent morality, in its exquisite adaptation to the human heart, in the facility with which its scheme accommodates itself to the capacity of every human intellect, in the consolation which it bears to the house of mourning, in the light with which it brightens the great mystery of the grave. #Quote by Thomas B. Macaulay
Objective Morality quotes by Maxwell Maltz
#42. Self-improvement is the name of the game, and your primary objective is to strengthen yourself, not to destroy an opponent. #Quote by Maxwell Maltz
Objective Morality quotes by John Peter Altgeld
#43. The doctrine that might makes right has covered the earth with misery. While it crushes the weak, it also destroys the strong. Every deceit, every cruelty, every wrong, reaches back sooner or later and crushes its author. Justice is moral health, bringing happiness, wrong is moral disease, bringing mortal death. #Quote by John Peter Altgeld
Objective Morality quotes by Gary L. Thomas
#44. Discerning someone's character, true values, and suitability for marriage is hard work. It takes time, counsel, and a healthy dose of objective self-doubt and skepticism. Identifying someone as "God's chosen" or Plato's "soul mate" is comparatively easy. You "feel" it in your gut. It seems right. You can't imagine anyone else. You must have found the one! #Quote by Gary L. Thomas
Objective Morality quotes by George Orwell
#45. The mutability of the past is the central tenet of Ingsoc. Past events, it is argued, have no objective existance, but survive only in written records and in human memories. The past is whatever the records and the memories agree upon. And since the Party is in full control of all records, and in equally full control of the minds of its members, it follows that the past is whatever the Party chooses to make it. #Quote by George Orwell
Objective Morality quotes by Herman Kahn
#46. The objective of nuclear-weapons policy should not be solely to decrease the number of weapons in the world, but to make the world safer - which is not necessarily the same thing. #Quote by Herman Kahn
