Honorable Means to Worthy Goals


The Means we use must be as pure
as the Ends we seek.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

A good End cannot sanctify evil Means;
nor must we ever do Evil,
that Good may come of it.
- William Penn

Power is not a Means, it is an End.
One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution;
one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.
- George Orwell

Wisdom denotes the pursuing of the best Ends by the best Means.
- Francis Hutcheson

Do the Means justify the Ends?
The Means happen today, and today is where all life happens.
The Ends are in the misty future, and quite ill-defined.
For me, nothing immoral is ever justified.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie
