Top Legality Morality Quotes

Legality Morality Quotes By Walter E. Williams

How does something immoral, when done privately, become moral when it is done collectively? Furthermore, does legality establish morality? Slavery was legal; apartheid is legal; Stalinist, Nazi, and Maoist purges were legal. Clearly, the fact of legality does not justify these crimes. Legality, alone, cannot be the talisman of moral people. — Walter E. Williams

Legality Morality Quotes By Julian Baggini

It is true that legality is not morality, and sticking to the law is necessary for good citizenship, but it is not sufficient. — Julian Baggini

Legality Morality Quotes By Allen Verhey

First, where the law is the major source for bioethics, morality is too easily confused with legality and moral questions too quickly reduced to legal questions. Moreover, the law is better at
telling us what not to do than at providing ends and goals worthy of our humanity. — Allen Verhey

Legality Morality Quotes By Max Stirner

Is not all the stupid chatter of most of our newspapers the babble of fools who suffer from the fixed idea of morality, legality, christianity and so forth, and only seem to go about free because the madhouse in which they walk takes in so broad a space? — Max Stirner

Legality Morality Quotes By Joseph Conrad

To break up the superstition and worship of legality should be our aim. Nothing would please me more than to see Inspector Heat and his likes take to shooting us down in broad daylight with the approval of the public. Half our battle would be won then; the desintegration of the old morality would have set in in its very temple. That is what you ought to aim at. But you revolutionists will never understand that. You plan the future, you lose yourselves in reveries of economical systems derived from what is; where as what's wanted is a clean sweep and a clear start for a new conception of life. That sort of future will take care of itself if you will only make room for it. Therefore I would shovel my stuff in heaps at the corners of the streets if I had enough for that; and as I haven't, I do my best by perfecting a really dependable detonator. — Joseph Conrad

Legality Morality Quotes By Ashly Lorenzana

Morality and legality have nothing to do with one another. I'm more than fine with breaking a law if it disagrees with my values and morals. — Ashly Lorenzana

Legality Morality Quotes By Linus Torvalds

Only religious fanatics and totalitarian states equate morality with legality. — Linus Torvalds

Legality Morality Quotes By Edward Snowden

Ultimately, if people lose their willingness to recognize that there are times in our history when legality becomes distinct from morality, we aren't just ceding control of our rights to government, but our agency in determining our futures. — Edward Snowden

Legality Morality Quotes By Philip Yancey

C. S. Lewis shocked many people in his day when he came out in favor of allowing divorce, on the grounds that we Christians have no right to impose our morality on society at large. Although he would continue to oppose divorce on moral grounds, he maintained the distinction between morality and legality. — Philip Yancey

Legality Morality Quotes By Richard Davenport-Hines

Rules, whether they govern sexual morality or financial probity, regardless of whether they are justifiable or undesirable, always provoke bold recalcitrants to devise clever, defiant ways to breach them. — Richard Davenport-Hines

Legality Morality Quotes By Goparaju Ramachandra Rao

We respect law, when the law respects our needs. Whenever legality clashes with morality, legality should be opposed and morality should be upheld. — Goparaju Ramachandra Rao

Legality Morality Quotes By Baruch Spinoza

All laws which can be violated without doing any one any injury are laughed at. Nay, so far are they from doing anything to control the desires and passions of men that, on the contrary, they direct and incite men's thoughts the more toward those very objects, for we always strive toward what is forbidden and desire the things we are not allowed to have. And men of leisure are never deficient in the ingenuity needed to enable them to outwit laws framed to regulate things which cannot be entirely forbidden ... He who tries to determine everything by law will foment crime rather than lessen it. — Baruch Spinoza
