morality

John F. Kennedy
A man does what he must, in spite of personal consequences, in spite of obstacles and dangers and pressures, and that is the basis of all human morality.
Marcel Proust
If only for the sake of elegance, I try to remain morally pure.
Mark Twain
It is noble to be good; it is still nobler to teach others to be good - and less trouble.
Everyone is a moon and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.
I once sent a dozen of my friends a telegram saying 'flee at once - all is discovered.' They all left town immediately.
Always do right - this will gratify some and astonish the rest.
Martin Luther King Jr.
I am not interested in power for power's sake, but I'm interested in power that is moral, that is right and that is good.
We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
Mother Teresa
People are unreasonable, illogical, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people may accuse you of selfish motives. Do good anyway. If you are successful, you may win false friends and true enemies. Succeed anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Honesty and transparency make you vulnerable. Be honest and transparent anyway. What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. Build anyway. People who really want help may attack you if you help them. Help them anyway. Give the world the best you have and you may get hurt. Give the world your best anyway.
Oscar Wilde
The only difference between the saint and the sinner is that every saint has a past, and every sinner has a future.
A man's very highest moment is, I have no doubt at all, when he kneels in the dust, and beats his breast, and tells all the sins of his life.
Duty is what one expects from others.
Wickedness is a myth invented by good people to account for the curious attraction of others.
Patrick Henry
Bad men cannot make good citizens. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience are incompatible with freedom.
Robert Fulghum
The devil made me do it the first time, and after that I did it on my own.
Robert Heinlein
Sin lies only in hurting other people unnecessarily. All other 'sins' are invented nonsense.
Saint Augustine
Give me chastity and continence, but not yet.
Sin is its own punishment.
Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible.
Samuel Johnson
No people can be great who have ceased to be virtuous.
