Morality quotes
Morality
Art, like morality, consists in drawing the line somewhere.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.
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.

- Macaulay, Thomas B.
FOOL, n. A person who pervades the domain of intellectual speculation and diffuses himself through the channels of moral activity. He is omnific, omniform, omnipercipient, omniscience, omnipotent. He it was who invented letters, printing, the railroad, the steamboat, the telegraph, the platitude and the circle of the sciences. He created patriotism and taught the nations war -- founded theology, philosophy, law, medicine and Chicago. He established monarchical and republican government. He is from everlasting to everlasting -- such as creation's dawn beheld he fooleth now. In the morning of time he sang upon primitive hills, and in the noonday of existence headed the procession of being. His grandmotherly hand was warmly tucked-in the set sun of civilization, and in the twilight he prepares Man's evening meal of milk-and-morality and turns down the covers of the universal grave. And after the rest of us shall have retired for the night of eternal oblivion he will sit up to write a history of human civilization.

- Ambrose Bierce
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
Segregation is the adultery of an illicit intercourse between injustice and immorality.

- Martin Luther King Jr.
Statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty but it is religion and morality alone that can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand.

- John Adams
The new so called morality has too often the old immorality condoned.

- Shawcross, Lord
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
Art, like morality, consists of drawing the line somewhere.

- G. K. Chesterton
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.

- Henry David Thoreau
Educating a son I should allow him no fairy tales and only a very few novels. This is to prevent him from having 1. the sense of romantic solitude (if he is worth anything he will develop a proper and useful solitude) which identification with the hero gives. 2. cant ideas of right and wrong, absurd systems of honor and morality which never will he be able completely to get rid of, 3. the attainment of ideals, of a priori desires, of a priori emotions. He should amuse himself with fact only: he will then not learn that if the weak younger son do or do not the magical honorable thing he will win the princess with hair like flax.

- Trilling, Lionel
We have no government armed with the power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and a religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

- John Adams
There is no moral precept that does not have something inconvenient about it.

- Denis Diderot
Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it.

- Bakunin, Mikhail
It is almost systematically to constitute a natural moral law. Nature has no principles. She furnishes us with no reason to believe that human life is to be respected. Nature, in her indifference, makes no difference between right and wrong.

- France, Anatole
I have never regarded politics as the arena of morals. It is the arena of interest.

- Bevan, Aneurin
Civilization depends on morality.

- Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Scandal is gossip made tedious by morality.

- Oscar Wilde
The soul is the captain and ruler of the life of morals.

- Sallust
I like the English. They have the most rigid code of immorality in the world.

- Bradbury, Malcolm
