Morality Quotes

Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last.

Charlotte Bronte

Morality in Europe today is herd-morality

Friedrich Nietzsche

Morality becomes hypocrisy if it means accepting mothers suffering or dying in connection with unwanted pregnancies and illegal abortions - and unwanted children living in misery.

Unknown

Civilization depends on morality.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Immorality: the morality of those who are having a better time

Henry Louis Mencken

Education must have two foundations --morality as a support for virtue, prudence as a defense for self against the vices of others. By letting the balance incline to the side of morality, you only make dupes or martyrs; by letting it incline to the other, you make calculating egoists.

S├ębastien-Roch Nicolas De Chamfort

If anyone tells you that you cannot legislate morality, remeber that legislation IS morality.

Jay Sekulow

What is termed Sin is an essential element of progress. Without it the world would stagnate, or grow old, or become colorless. By its curiosity Sin increases the experience of the race. Through its intensified assertion of individualism it saves us from monotony of type. In its rejection of the current notions about morality, it is one with the higher ethics.

Oscar Wilde

Deterrence itself is not a preeminent value; the primary values are safety and morality.

Herman Kahn

Organizations endure, however, in proportion to the breadth of the morality by which they are governed. Thus the endurance of organization depends upon the quality of leadership; and that quality derives from the breadth of the morality upon which it rests.

Chester Irving Barnard

If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject.

Ayn Rand

Hygiene is the corruption of medicine by morality. It is impossible to find a hygienist who does not debase his theory of the healthful with a theory of the virtuous. The true aim of medicine is not to make men virtuous; it is to safeguard and rescue them from the consequences of their vices.

Henry Louis Mencken

Morality, when vigorously alive, sees farther than intellect, and provides unconsciously for intellectual difficulties.

James Anthony Froude

Morality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered.

Graham Greene

Morality is a private and costly luxury
