?Farmers were the first moral philosophers; they don't expect to reap if they have not sown, and they know very well that if they sow cabbages they will not harvest carrots. How can someone who sows nothing but hatred and strife hope to reap a harvest of love and peace? If you want a marble palace you are not going to start building with clay bricks. If you want a healthy body you are not going to give it poisonous food.
How can anyone expect to develop a healthy, sturdy psyche, a lucid mind and a generous heart if he is seething with anarchic thoughts and feelings poisoned by his own greed and resentment? Exactly as we sift and select suitable food or building materials, we have to sift and select the thoughts and feelings that present themselves to us. The laws that govern the psychic life are the same as those which have already been seen to govern other aspects of nature or technology.
It was neither man nor society as a whole that invented morality: it is intrinsic to nature, to every aspect and dimension of nature.'
