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.
