ethics mold our core being

our well-founded standards

embrace morals and values

and not follow one’s feelings

nor “what society accepts”

every equation has two sides

let knowledge prevail

Reena’s Xploration Challenge #224

Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right to do, and what is right to do. Peter Stewart

  1. So well said Eugi

  2. Good point that ethics does not follow one’s feelings nor what society accepts. It has a deeper ground. I like the quote from Peter Stewart.

  3. Let knowledge prevail, and let truth prevail.

  4. Good advice.

  5. May we all have the knowledge to know right from wrong and defend those wronged the in right ways.

  6. Reminds me of taking a philosophy course on ethics back in my college days. A fascinating (and important!) course of study.

  7. No truer words have been spoken.

  8. Feelings are wonderful but ya can’t always act on them or your feelings could get you in trouble and acceptance by society seems like every thing to a lot of people but I could care less. I prefer to stay true to myself, know what to do and when to do it, instead of acting on feelings 100% of the time. You pack a lot of thought-provoking, common sense in so few words – excellently done! 👍

  9. Definedly excellent versing Eugenia! 🙂

    💜 Trouble is EveryOne; different “ethics” EveryBody a Solution-in-Waiting with an Acceptance of Diversity


    • True, everyone has different ethics but they should be driven by “the right thing to do”. ❤️

      • Yernasia Quorelios

        💜 It’s ,”True” that “the right thing to do” is YOUR!!! “ethic” and Others may THINK!!! differently or agree or couldn’t give a fuck; for example My Deceased Dad Brutally Beat (basically Criminal Assault) My Siblings and I in The Name of Discipline “”the right thing to do”” so I AM Very Grateful 🙏🏿 that He is Dead and Forgiven for DOING THE RIGHT THING IN THE WRONG WAY!!! Rant Over


      • I am sorry this happened to you and your siblings. You make a very good point. The “right thing to do” in your case, was done in the wrong way. 🙏❤️

  11. Nope, Not Pam

    This made me think of the Will Smith/ Chris Rock situation. Always two sides.

  12. Very well said, Eugi! Totally agree.

  13. This is why good parenting is a must, so consciences are developed and we make the right choices! Nicely said, Eugenia!
