Letter "E" » Ethics
«Our identities have no bodies, so, unlike you, we cannot obtain order by physical coercion. We believe that from ethics, enlightened self-interest, and the commonweal, our governance will emerge.»
«Ordinary people, even weak people, can do extraordinary things through temporary courage generated by a situation. But the person of character does not need the situation to generate his courage. It is a part of his being and a standard approach to all life's challenges. We?re all ethical in our own eyes. Although we are usually judged by our last worst act, we usually judge ourselves by our most noble deeds, our best intentions and our most virtuous traits. Character is not a fancy coat we put on for show, it?s who we really are.»
«Never let a sense of what is right blind you to what is true.»
«Manners easily and rapidly mature into morals.»
«Never let your sense of morals get in the way of doing what's right.»
«Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.»
«Morals are an acquirement - like music, like a foreign language, like piety, poker, paralysis - no man is born with them.»

«Public morals are natural complements of all laws: they are by themselves an entire code.»
«No man can purchase his virtue too dear, for it is the only thing whose value must ever increase with the price it has cost us. Our integrity is never worth so much as when we have parted with our all to keep it.»
«Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your own mind.»
