It is for the sake of order that I seduced Clytemnestra, for the sake of order that I killed my king. I wanted for order to rule and that it rule through me. I have lived without desire, without love, without hope: I made order. Oh! terrible and divine passion!

 
Jean-Paul Sartre
 

St. Thomas confronts other creeds of good and evil, without at all denying evil, with a theory of two levels of good. The supernatural order is the supreme good, as for any Eastern mystic; but the natural order is good; as solidly good as it is for any man in the street.

 
Thomas Aquinas

I can at least comfort myself with the idea that whatever Ive done Ive helped to nail a lie, and Im coming to think that lying is among the worst of all human failings. Next to actual killing. And experience has made us almost equally good at both of them.
I have killed many people and seen many more killed on my orders, Jogajong said. It is what must be paid to buy what we want.
What weve been told we want, by liars more skilled than ourselves.

 
John Brunner
 

We must be something in order to do something, but we must also do something in order to be something. The best rule, I think, is this: If we find it hard to do good, then let us try to be good. If, on the other hand, we find it hard to be good, then let us try to do good. Being leads to doing, doing leads to being. Yet below both as their common root is faith, faith in God, in man, in ourselves, in the eternal superiority of right over wrong, truth over error, good over evil, love over all selfishness and all sin.
