Lincoln's appeal to 'the better angels of our nature' failed to avert a fratricidal war. But the compassionate wisdom of Lincoln's first and second inaugurals bequeathed to the Union, cemented with blood, a moral heritage which, when drawn upon in times of stress and strife, is sure to find specific ways and means to surmount difficulties that may appear to be insurmountable

Felix Frankfurter

So, I think thatís the centerpiece of morality: Donít lie. But to do that, you have to go a step further and find out what the truth is. You know, itís easy to say, ìIíll never tell a lie.î But if you say, ìIím going to speak the truth,î youíre going to have to work damn hard to find out what the truth is. The next thing is just plain, old, simple kindness: to other people, to your family. Love for other people. I think thatís another very important part of morality, being genuinely compassionate and concerned about the feelings and well being of other people, especially those that depend on you directly.

Earl Nightingale

Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest places in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart.

Salman Rushdie

I find my zenith doth depend upon A most auspicious star, whose influence If now I court not, but omit, my fortunes Will ever after droop.

William Shakespeare

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

Frederick Douglass

My advice to you is get married: if you find a good wife you'll be happy; if not, you'll become a philosopher.

Socrates
