Morality is character and conduct such as is required by the circle or community in which the man's life happens to be placed. It shows how much good men require of us.

Henry Ward Beecher, in Life of Thoughts (1858)

Morality's not practical. Morality's a gesture. A complicated gesture learnt from books.

Robert Bolt, in A Man For All Seasons (1960)

All systems of morality are fine. The gospel alone has exhibited a complete assemblage of the principles of morality, divested of all absurdity. It is not composed, like your creed, of a few common-place sentences put into bad verse. Do you wish to see that which is really sublime? Repeat the Lord's Prayer.

Napoleon Bonaparte, reported in Josiah Hotchkiss Gilbert, Dictionary of Burning Words of Brilliant Writers (1895), p. 419.

William Enfield|William Enfield, in The History of Philosophy Vol. I, (1819), p. 185

It is the dutiful disposition of each person to spread morality outside of himself to the best of his ability and knowledge, i.e., to see to it that everyone has the same disposition he has ... It follows from this that the overall end of the moral community as a whole is to produce unanimity concerning matters of morality.

Johann Gottlieb Fichte, in The System of Ethics : According to the Principles of the Wissenschaftslehre (2005), p.329

Morality rests upon a sense of obligation; and obligation has no meaning except as implying a Divine command, without which it would cease to be.
