A subject that has for centuries been the angst of the average man, morality quotes seem to fall into two different camps: those who like to observe its downfall, and those who seek to inspire others to reach for its lofty grasp. Longfellow offered that morality and religion must be tied together, and certainly The Bible may contain the greatest number of morality quotes. The poet and philosopher Henry David Thoreau is credited with one of his classically straightforward gems of encouragement: Aim above morality. Be not simply good; be good for something, suggesting that we cannot rest on our laurels, but reach for something greater than ourselves.

Buddha was born into a luxurious life as an Indian prince. His name means "the Awakened One," and he eventually became the originator of Buddhism. At age 29 he began his search for the cure of humanity's sorrow through peace and harmony with everything and everyone. His concept of karma, that what we put into the universe comes back to us, is a fundamental teaching of Buddhism that is still well-known today. He is said to have attained enlightenment during long meditation under a Bodhi tree, at which point he became Buddha until the age of 80, when he died in Kushinagar. Buddha Quotes
