Ethics

We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. —Aristotle

When I do good, I feel good; when I do bad, I feel bad, and that is my religion. –Abraham Lincoln

Don’t be too quick to draw conclusions from what happens to you; simply let it happen…One must be so careful with names anyway; it is so often the name of an offense that a life shatters upon, not the nameless and personal action itself, which was perhaps a quite definite necessity of that life and could have been absorbed by it without any trouble. —Ranier Maria Rilke

Ultimately, and precisely in the deepest and most important matters, we are unspeakably alone; and many things must happen, many things must go right, a whole constellation of events must be fulfilled for one human being to successfully advise or help another. —Ranier Maria Rilke

“Out beyond right-doing and wrong-doing … lies a field. 
I will meet you there.”
—Rumi
