The Adequate Ideal

THE ADEQUATE IDEAL

“One is apt to think of moral failure as due to a weakness of character: more often it is due to an inadequate ideal. We detect in others and occasionally in ourselves, the want of courage, of industry, of persistence which leads to defeat. But we do not notice the more subtle and disastrous weakness, that our standards are wrong, that we have never learnt what is good.”

—Richard Livingston
