Examples of morals in a Sentence

  1. Actress Gianna Simone:

    If people ever want to know why I have good morals, why I don’t sleep around or drink or do drugs, why I choose to walk a really clean life and clean path, they can ask, … I embrace everybody.

  3. Judith Crist:

    What censorship accomplishes, creating an unreal and hypocritical mythology, fomenting an attraction for forbidden fruit, inhibiting the creative minds among us and fostering an illicit trade. Above all, it curtails the right of the individual, be he creator or consumer, to satisfy his intellect and his interest without harm. In our law-rooted society, we are not the keeper of our brother’s morals -- only of his rights.

  4. Lao Tse, In a discussion with Confucious about the true nature of humanity.:
