A Quote by unknown on morality and film quote

Vice, Virtue. It's best not to be too moral. You cheat yourself out of too much life.  Aim above morality. If you apply that to life, then you're bound to live life fully.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on justice, morality, center, tao, and circle

Throw away holiness and wisdom,
and people will be a hundred times happier.
Throw away morality and justice,
and people will do the right thing.
Throw away industry and profit,
and there won't be any thieves.

If these three aren't enough,
just stay at the center of the circle
and let all things take their course.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on ideas, morality, thoughts, and god

Your ideas about right and wrong are just that—ideas. They are the thoughts which form the shape and create the substance of Who You Are. There would be only one reason to change any of these; only one purpose in making an alteration: if you are not happy with Who You Are.

Neale Donald Walsch

Legal plunder has two roots: One, as we have just seen, is in human selfishness; the other is in false philanthropy.

A Quote by Frédéric Bastiat on society, justice, law, morality, and ethics

No society can exist if respect for the law does not to some extent prevail; but the surest way to have the laws respected is to make them respectable. When law and morality are in contradiction, the citizen finds himself in the cruel dilemma of either losing his moral sense or of losing respect for the law, two evils of which one is as great as the other, and between which it is difficult to choose.

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."

Theodore Roosevelt (1858 - 1919)

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on compassion, poverty, morality, and society

True compassion is more than throwing a coin to a beggar.  It demands of our humanity that if we live in a society that produces beggars, we are morally commanded to restructure that society.
