A Quote by Antoine R. Ivins on attitude, belief, chance, chastity, children, laws, and spirituality

The law of chastity is not a negative proposition, but a positive one because in its observance there are spiritual values that far outweigh the physical dangers that we often emphasize. I believe the chances are that our children will respond to the positive attitude quicker and more thoroughly than they do to the negative. Let's show them the values that there are in that law.

A Quote by Andrew Linzey on beauty, creation, creativity, education, intuition, laws, obedience, understanding, virtue, and worth

Moral education, as I understand it, is not about inculcating obedience to law or cultivating self-virtue, it is rather about finding within us an ever-increasing sense of the worth of creation. It is about how we can develop and deepen our intuitive sense of beauty and creativity.

Andrew Linzey (1952 -)
