A Quote by Oliver North on difference, right, wrong, decision, call, good, better, bad, and worse

I know the difference between right and wrong, and I can tell good from bad.  But I also know that the more difficult decisions come when we have to choose between good and better.  The toughest calls of all are those we have to make between bad and worse.

A Quote by Thomas Paine on right, wrong, and habit

A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong, gives it a superficial appearance of being right.

A Quote by Theodore Roosevelt on justice, right, and wrong

Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but in finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong

A Quote by Chuck Palahniuk on right, wrong, and promise

"It's not a matter of right and wrong." Mr. Whittier would say.
Really, there is no wrong. Not in our minds. Our own reality.
You can never set off to do the wrong thing.
You can never say the wrong thing.
In your own mind, you are always right. Every action you take--what you do or say or how you choose to appear--is automatically right the moment you act.
His hand shaking as he lifts his cup, Mr. Whittier says, "Even if you were to tell yourself, 'Today, I'm going to drink coffee the wrong way... from a dirty boot.' Even that would be right because you chose to drink coffee from that boot."
Because you can do nothing wrong. You are always right.
Even when you say, "I'm such an idiot, I'm so wrong..." you're right.
You're right about being wrong. You're right even when you're an idiot.
"No matter how stupid your idea," Mr. Whittier would say, "you're doomed to be right because it's yours."
We're all condemned to be right. About everything we can consider.
In this shifting, liquid world where everyone is right and any idea is right the moment you act on it, Mr. Whittier would say, the only sure thing is what you promise.

Chuck Palahniuk

A Quote by Francis Vincent "Frank" Zappa, Jr. on right, wrong, and statistics

It has never mattered to me that thirty million people might think I'm wrong.  The number of people who thought Hitler was right did not make him right...  Why do you necessarily have to be wrong just because a few million people think you are?

Frank Zappa (1940 - 1993)

A Quote by C. S. Lewis on right, wrong, law, human nature, nature, good, evil, and humankind

Now this Law or Rule about Right and Wrong used to be called the Law of Nature.  Nowadays, when we talk of the 'laws of nature' we usually mean things like gravitation, or heredity, or the laws of chemistry.  But when the older thinkers called the Law of Right and Wrong the 'Law of Nature', they really meant the Law of Human Nature. The idea was that, just as all bodies are governed by the law of gravitation, and organisms by biological laws, so the creature called man also had his law--with this great difference, that a body could not choose whether it obeyed the law of gravitation or not, but a man could choose either to obey the Law of Human Nature or to disobey it.

C. S. Lewis
