«Action indeed is the sole medium of expression for ethics.»
«Ethics is not definable, is not implementable, because it is not conscious; it involves not only our thinking, but also our feeling.»
«A people and their religion must be judged by social standards based on social ethics. No other standard would have any meaning if religion is held to be necessary good for the well-being of the people.»
«Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.»
«Ethics is the activity of man directed to secure the inner perfection of his own personality.»
«Ethics and equity and the principles of justice do not change with the calendar.»
«Self-discipline, although difficult, and not always easy while combating negative emotions, should be a defensive measure. At least we will be able to prevent the advent of negative conduct dominated by negative emotion. That is 'shila', or moral ethics. Once we develop this by familiarizing ourselves with it, along with mindfulness and conscientiousness, eventually that pattern and way of life will become a part of our own life.»
