Do not act as if you were going to live ten thousand years. Death hangs over you. While you live, while it is in your power, be good.
It’s really difficult, both in geography and morality, to understand the world without leaving your own home.
There is nothing divine about morality, it is a purely human affair.
To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society.
There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours much more.
People are very inclined to set moral standards for others.
A man’s ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
Justice is truth in action.
The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.
I have a higher and grander standard of principle than George Washington. He could not lie; I can, but I won’t.
Truth is so rare that it is delightful to tell it.
The happiness and unhappiness of men depends as much on their ethics as on fortune.
If you want peace, work for justice.
Art of living consists in getting the greatest good out of the greatest evil.
What would your good do if evil didn’t exist, and what would the earth look like if all the shadows disappeared?
Nature, in her indifference, makes no distinction between good and evil.
