ETHICS
[ Also see Character Morality ]

Grub first, then ethics.
      - Bertolt Brecht

Art itself is essentially ethical; because every true work of art must have a beauty or grandeur of some kind, and beauty and grandeur cannot be comprehended by the beholder except through the moral sentiment. The eye is only a witness; it is not a judge. The mind judges what the eye reports to it; therefore, whatever elevates the moral sentiment to the contemplation of beauty and grandeur is in itself ethical.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

A man's ethical behavior should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death.
      - Albert Einstein

To make a goal of comfort or happiness has never appealed to me; a system of ethics built on this basis would be sufficient only for a herd of cattle.
      - Albert Einstein

Ethics may be defined as the obligations of morality.
      - Louis Kossuth

Ethics is the doctrine of manners, or science of philosophy, which teaches men their duty and the springs and principles of human conduct.
      - Samuel Maunder

Ethics, as has been well said, are the finest fruits of humanity, but they are not its roots.
      - Dinah Maria Mulock (used pseudonym Mrs. Craik)

The first step in the evolution of ethics is an enlargement of the sense of solidarity with other human beings.
      - Albert Schweitzer,
        The Teaching of Reverence for Life
         (p. 9)

The modern Gamaliel should teach ethics. Ethics is the science of human duty. Arithmetic tells man how to count his money; ethics how he should acquire it, whether by honesty or fraud. Geography is a map of the world; ethics is a beautiful map of duty. This ethics is not Christianity, it is not even religion; but it is the sister of religion, because the path of duty is in full harmony, as to quality and direction, with the path of God.
      - David Swing
