9 Morality Quotes from Literature

There are a set of religious, or rather moral writers, who teach that virtue is the certain road to happiness, and vice to misery, in this world. A very wholesome and comfortable doctrine, and to which we have but one objection, namely, that it is not true. ~ Tom Jones by Henry Fielding "And what, incidentally, do you think integrity is? The ability not to pick a watch out of your neighbor's pocket? No, it's not as easy as that. If that were all, I'd say ninety-five percent of humanity were honest, upright men. Only, as you can see, they aren't. Integrity is the ability to stand by an idea. That presupposes the ability to think. Thinking is something one doesn't borrow or pawn." ~ The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand Men moralise among ruins, or, in the throng and tumult of successful cities, recall past visions of urban desolation for prophetic warning. ~ Tancred by Benjamin Disraeli "The confusion of marriage with morality has done more to destroy the conscience of the human race than any other single error." ~ Man And Superman by George Bernard Shaw "Morality is simply the attitude we adopt towards people whom we personally dislike." ~ An Ideal Husband by Oscar Wilde "History is merely gossip. But scandal is gossip made tedious by morality." ~ Lady Windermere's Fan by Oscar Wilde "I have to live for others and not for myself: that's middle class morality." ~ Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw Conventionality is not morality. Self-righteousness is not religion. To attack the first is not to assail the last. ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte I was always treated as if I had insisted on being born, in opposition to the dictates of reason, religion, and morality, and against the dissuadinig arguments of my best friends ~ Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
