    Relevant quote: I really enjoy Ernest Hemingway's take on morality in this quote from his book Death in the Afternoon. "“So far, about morals, I know only that what is moral is what you feel good after and what is immoral is what you feel bad after.”

  7. Well... Hemingway engaged in some questionable behaviors. Not sure I'd look to him for moral guidance.
