All systems of morality are based on the idea that an action has consequences that legitimize or cancel it. A mind imbued with the absurd merely judges that those consequences must be considered calmly.
All good enterprises which are not grafted on to a morally good attitude of mind are nothing but illusion and outwardly glittering misery.[Alles Gute aber, das nicht auf moralisch-gute Gesinnung gepfropft ist, ist nichts als lauter Schein und schimmerndes Elend.]
A moral being is one who is capable of reflecting on his past actions and their motives – of approving of some and disapproving of others.
