The essence of morality is a questioning about morality; and the decisive move of human life is to use ceaselessly all light to look for the origin of the opposition between good and evil.

For every life and every act consequence of good and evil can be shown and as in time results of many deeds are blended so good and evil in the end become confounded.
Good and evil, reward and punishment, are the only motives to a rational creature: these are the spur and reins whereby all mankind are set on work, and guided.
We are like chameleons, we take our hue and the color of our moral character, from those who are around us.
Parents wonder why the streams are bitter, when they themselves have poisoned the fountain.
I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.
There is an electric fire in human nature tending to purify -- so that among these human creatures there is continually some birth of new heroism. The pity is that we must wonder at it, as we should at finding a pearl in rubbish.
No accurate thinker will judge another person by that which the other person's enemies say about him.
Life must be lived and curiosity kept alive. One must never, for whatever reason, turn his back on life.
Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.
Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to homeso close and so small that they cannot be seen on any map of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person: the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works. Such are the places where every man, woman and child seeks equal justice, equal opportunity, equal dignity without discrimination. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right. You'll be criticized anyway.
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by each experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ?I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.? You must do the thing you think you cannot do.
The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experiences.
It isn't enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn't enough to believe in it. One must work at it.
The reason that fiction is more interesting than any other form of literature, to those who really like to study people, is that in fiction the author can really tell the truth without humiliating himself.
It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself.
When you cease to make a contribution, you begin to die.
You always admire what you really don't understand.
One's philosophy is not best expressed in words; it is expressed in the choices one makes. In the long run, we shape our lives and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And, the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility.
The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.
