Our Own Morality

“A mature understanding of the many ways there are of organising a society and a life may make us more tolerant of the people not like us, but it does not preclude the knowledge that, if we are to find meaning, depth and resonance in life, we must choose a language of deeds as we choose a language of words. Out of the many moralities available, there is one that is ours, and we do not have to denigrate the others to make that one our own.”

Morality, Chapter 20, p. 285
