Good & Bad

The greater part of what my neighbors call good I believe in my soul to be bad, and if I repent of anything, it is very likely to be my good behavior. What demon possessed me that I behaved so well?

— Henry David Thoreau

Generally, it may be stated that what people consider to be good is really bad, and most of the things that are considered bad are really good.

— Maimonides, Preservation of Youth

No law can be sacred to me but that of my nature. Good and bad are but names very readily transferable to this or that.

— Ralph Waldo Emerson
