William J. H. Boetcker

Even if you're not doing anything wrong, you are being watched and recorded.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel

Iain Duncan Smith
To be a utilitarian means that you judge actions as right or wrong in accordance with whether they have good consequences. So you try to do what will have the best consequences for all of those affected.
In my divorce, I stood up and said to my ex-wife, 'Hey, I messed up. This had nothing to do with you. I didn't understand what marriage was. I cheated. I was wrong. We couldn't fix it; it got worse.

Everyone - pantheist, atheist, skeptic, polytheist - has to answer these questions: 'Where did I come from? What is life's meaning? How do I define right from wrong and what happens to me when I die?' Those are the fulcrum points of our existence.
Insults are the arguments employed by those who are in the wrong.
There's nothing wrong or evil about having a bad day. There's everything wrong with making others have to have it... with you.
Love bravely, live bravely, be courageous, there's really nothing to lose. There's no wrong you can't make right again, so be kinder to yourself, you know, have fun, take chances. There's no bounds.
John F. Kennedy
