Morality quotes
Morality
There are two sorts of hypocrites; ones that are deceived with their outward morality and external religion; and the others; those that are deceived with false discoveries and elevation; which often cry down works, and men's own righteousness, and talk much of free grace; but at the same time make righteousness of their discoveries, and of their humiliation, and exalt themselves to heaven with them.

- Edwards, Jonathan
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 only immorality is not to do what one has to do when one has to do it.

- Anouilh, Jean
What is morality in any given time or place? It is what the majority then and there happen to like, and immorality is what they dislike.

- Alfred North Whitehead
Each man must grant himself the emotions that he needs and the morality that suits him.

- Gourmont, Remy De
Vanity of science. Knowledge of physical science will not console me for ignorance of morality in time of affliction, but knowledge of morality will always console me for ignorance of physical science.

- Pascal, Blaise
History is a voice forever sounding across the centuries the laws of right and wrong. Opinions alter, manners change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity.

- James A. Forude
I have never regarded politics as the arena of morals. It is the arena of interest.

- Bevan, Aneurin
I have often thought morality may perhaps consist solely in the courage of making a choice.

- Leon Blum
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.

- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
'Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.'Under the influence of this pestilent morality, I am forever letting tomorrow's work slop backwards into today's, and doing painfully and nervously today what I could do quickly and easily tomorrow.

- J. A. Spender
Obscenity is a moral concept in the verbal arsenal of the establishment, which abuses the term by applying it, not to expressions of its own morality but to those of another.

- Marcuse, Herbert
Do not be too moral. You may cheat yourself out of much life. So aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something.

- Thoreau, Henry David
In Christianity neither morality nor religion come into contact with reality at any point.

- Friedrich Nietzsche
We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.

- John Adams
Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. To pluck the mask from the face of the Pharisee is not to lift an impious hand to the Crown of Thorns.

- Bronte, Charlotte
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
How the mother is to be pitied who hath handsome daughters! Locks, bolts, bars, and lectures of morality are nothing to them: they break through them all. They have as much pleasure in cheating a father and mother, as in cheating at cards.

- Gay, John
We do not look in our great cities for our best morality.

- Austen, Jane
The essence of morality is a questioning about morality; and the decisive move of human life is to use ceaselessly all light to look for the origin of the opposition between good and evil.

- Bataille, Georges
