Morality quotes
Morality
The people who are regarded as moral luminaries are those who forego ordinary pleasures themselves and find compensation in interfering with the pleasures of others.

- Bertrand Russell
Morality is always the product of terror; its chains and strait-waistcoats are fashioned by those who dare not trust others, because they dare not trust themselves, to walk in liberty.

- Huxley, Aldous
The true meaning of religion is thus, not simply morality, but morality touched by emotion.

- Arnold, Matthew
The genius of capitalism consists precisely in its lack of morality. Unless he is rich enough to hire his own choir, a capitalist is a fellow who, by definition, can ill afford to believe in anything other than the doctrine of the bottom line. Deprive a capitalist of his God-given right to lie and cheat and steal, and the poor sap stands a better than even chance of becoming one of the abominable wards of the state from whose grimy fingers the Reagan Administration hopes to snatch the ark of democracy.

- Lapham, Lewis H.
Moral choices do not depend on personal preference and private decision but on right reason and, I would add, divine order.

- Hume, Basil
Honor is simply the morality of superior men.

- Mencken, H. L.
Don't be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life so.

- Thoreau, Henry David
He was not one of those "ungodly" men of whom David speaks in his Psalms, who rob the widow and the fatherless. His morality was as high as that of the average, his honour higher. But of "godliness" in its true sense--of belief that any Being above cared for him, and was helping him in the daily business of life: that it was worth while asking that Being's advice, or that any advice would be given if asked for--of any practical notion of a heavenly Father or a Divine educator--he was as ignorant as thousands of persons who go to church every Sunday, and read good books, and believe firmly that the Pope is Antichrist.

- Two Years Ago, chap. i. 1856.
The person who still blushes is not yet a degenerate.

- Young
The type of fig leaf which each culture employs to cover its social taboos offers a twofold description of its morality. It reveals that certain unacknowledged behavior exists and it suggests the form that such behavior takes.

- Adler, Freda
Moral indignation in most cases is, 2% moral, 48% indignation, and 50% envy.

- Sica, Vittorio De
ACADEME, n. An ancient school where morality and philosophy were taught.

- Ambrose Bierce
Truth is the secret of eloquence and of virtue, the basis of moral authority; it is the highest summit of art and life.

- Henri-FrÚdÚric Amiel
Compassion is the basis of all morality.

- Arthur Schopenhauer
The great rule of moral conduct is next to God, respect time.

- Lavater, Johann Kaspar
Just as there's garbage that pollutes the Potomac river, there is garbage polluting our culture. We need an Environmental Protection Agency to clean it up.

- Buchanan, Patrick
Each man must grant himself the emotions that he needs and the morality that suits him.

- Gourmont, Remy De
A religion so cheerless, a philosophy so sorrowful, could never have succeeded with the masses of mankind if presented only as a system of metaphysics. Buddhism owed its success to its catholic spirit and its beautiful morality.

- Reade, W. Winwood
Morality is simply the attitude we adopt toward people we personally dislike.

- Oscar Wilde
Morality is not the doctrine of how we may make ourselves happy, but how we may make ourselves worthy of happiness.

- Kant, Immanuel
