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, ěIíll never tell a lie.î But if you say, ěIím 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.
