Kant's Moral Imperative

Posted by Criswell Freeman on

February 12. On this day in 1804 Immanuel Kant, the German philosopher, died in Königsberg, Prussia at the age of 79. Kant’s writings on morality and religious faith helped shape the development of modern philosophical discourse throughout the Western world. He is perhaps best known for his moral imperative which is paraphrased as follows: “Act so that the description of your behavior could be made the principle of a universal law.” The following men and women wholeheartedly agree.

It’s Always the Right Time to Do the Right Thing

“Behavior is a mirror, in which everyone shows his image.”
Goethe

“Act well and you have performed a good action for all eternity.”
Johann Lavatar

“Your daily life is your temple and your religion.”
Kahlil Gibran

”The nicest thing we can do for our heavenly Father is to be kind to one of His children.”

“Every evening we should look back at the day and think about it. What problems did I solve? What harmful habits did I change? What wrongdoing did I avoid? What good habits did I practice?”
Seneca

“Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.”
St. Jerome

Today’s Bible Verse
