˹ 222 - I must again repeat what the assailants of utilitarianism seldom have the justice to acknowledge, that the happiness which forms the utilitarian standard of what is right in conduct is not the agent's own happiness but that of all concerned. As between his own happiness and that of others, utilitarianism requires him to be as strictly impartial as a disinterested and benevolent spectator.
˹ 369 - In those days they shall say no more, "The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge." But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
˹ 362 - What do you say concerning the principle that injury should be recompensed with kindness?" The Master said, "With what then will you recompense kindness?" "Recompense injury with justice, and recompense kindness with kindness.
˹ 19 - is a definite combination of heterogeneous changes, both simultaneous and successive, in correspondence with external coexistences and sequences.
˹ 373 - Do unto others as ye would that they should do unto you " ? This was the doctrine of Lao-tsze.
˹ 362 - Learn from yon orient shell to love thy foe, And store with pearls the hand that brings thee woe : Free, like yon rock, from base vindictive pride, Emblaze with gems the wrist that rends thy side...

˹ 310 - Wilt not thou possess that which Chemosh thy god giveth thee to possess ? so whomsoever the LORD our God shall drive out from before us, them will we possess.
˹ 52 - For where no covenant hath preceded, there hath no right been transferred, and every man has right to everything and consequently, no action can be unjust. But when a covenant is made, then to break it is unjust and the definition of injustice is no other than the not performance of covenant. And whatsoever is not unjust is just.
˹ 393 - I have given bread to the hungry, water to the thirsty, clothes to the naked, and a shelter to the stranger.
