Morales Three Journal Entries (Fall Qtr. 1) 1. "Morality, like art, means drawing a line someplace." - Oscar Wilde 9/16 This quote is absolutely true: in a sense there is no absolute morality. Sometimes, certain values or virtues are sacrificed for the greater good. Imagine, in a war with a hostile nation, does a country unleash a barrage of attacks, risking people's lives, to take the lives of others for the sake of national security? Sometimes, for the sake of preserving life or securing the protection of something important, malicious things such as murder and deception are utilized. Indeed, we have to strive for a virtuous lifestyle, but sometimes life puts us in circumstances when people have to choose the lesser of two evils. 2. Wham! (echoic) 9/17 With all its excitement and displeasure, ups and downs, and triumphs and failures, life can be unexpected and spontaneous. Wham! I won a scholarship for Loyola High School.
