The truth is, hardly any of us have ethical energy enough for more than one really inflexible point of honor.
George Bernard Shaw
I don't think ethical people deal with intimidation as a method to achieve success. Undermining someone's self-esteem isn't a method to achieve success.
My Dad is my hero. He's 85 now and he is in great health. He is handsome and strong. He has an incredible moral and ethical backbone. I couldn't have been luckier with my parents.
Harry Connick, Jr.
The industrial revolution has tended to produce everywhere great urban masses that seem to be increasingly careless of ethical standards.
Those of us who believe in God and derive our sense of right and wrong and ethics from God's Word really have no difficulty whatsoever defining where our ethics come from. People who believe in survival of the fittest might have more difficulty deriving where their ethics come from. A lot of evolutionists are very ethical people.
Necessity is the most powerful divinity the world knows, and necessity is the resultant of physical forces set in operation by ethical forces.
In any ethical situation, the thing you want least to do is probably the right action.
The reason I want to show shocking things is that they always pose an ethical question.
Don't even get me started. I'm not against all vegetarians. But if you're a vegetarian for ethical reasons, you may be causing more harm.
A lot of things that we cannot buy and sell in markets used to be totally legal objects of market exchange - human beings when we had slavery, child labour, human organs, and so on. So there is no economic theory that actually says that you shouldn't have slavery or child labour because all these are political, ethical judgments.
Contrary to what professional economists will typically tell you, economics is not a science. All economic theories have underlying political and ethical assumptions, which make it impossible to prove them right or wrong in the way we can with theories in physics or chemistry.
Mr. Speaker, the fact of the matter is that the Ten Commandments are a historical document that contains moral, ethical, and legal truisms that any person of any religion or even an atheist can recognize and appreciate.
I don't have a set of tenets, but I live an ethical life. I practice a humility that presupposes there's a power greater than myself. And I always believe, don't inflict harm where it's not necessary.
Michael J. Fox

Doing good business - being ethical, being transparent, being caring, implementing values in your business - makes a difference, and you make money at the same time.
We believe that business is good because it creates value. It is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange; it is noble because it can elevate our existence, and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity.
The ethical manifold, conceived of as unified, furnishes, or rather is, the ideal of the whole.
It's fun to play a character who lives on the edge, who is an ethical and moral mess, and is paying the price for some of his actions.
By the way, I'm not a vegetarian. I have a lot of respect for people who are vegetarian for religious or ethical reasons.

Vicente del Bosque
Today, more than ever, citizens demand with good reason that moral and ethical principles be upheld and that exemplariness preside over our public life. And the king, as the head of state, must not only be an example but also a servant to that just and legitimate demand of the citizens.
King Felipe VI
We slow the progress of science today for all sorts of ethical reasons. Biomedicine could advance much faster if we abolished our rules on human experimentation in clinical trials, as Nazi researchers did.
In day-to-day life, you have stimulus to behave unethically, but in the long term, it always pays off to be ethical.
Jorge Paulo Lemann
