"Remember, darkness does not equate evil, just as light does not always bring good." -- Betrayed, by P.C. Cast

It relates to preconceived and shallow notions of good and evil. Sometimes appearances and actions can be deceiving. Evil can disguise itself as a saint. Also, that people tend to make the mistake of assigning literal aspects of darkness to evil, such as how predominately villains are associated with black and the night. In fact, imagine two magnificent bulls standing before you. One is as white and pure as snow, with the other as a moonless sky. One is the embodiment of horror, and the other stands for life. Guess which one wants you to suffer and die in the most horrific manner possible, which may or may not include it eating you alive?

Don't judge people; you don't know their struggles.

The struggle is real.

But fear is a choice.

Perhaps my most favorite moral is from the Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli. 'Do what is efficient.' I think that sums it up.

"War...war never changes."
~Fallout series

Meaning, mankind will inevitably destroy itself through it's pathetic greed and rage.

This is one I can definitely get behind since I find most wars America pits against others pathetic and completely unnecessary.

Also,

Hikigaya's 'nice girls' quote from SNAFU because I can completely relate to the stuff he goes through.

One of my favorites would be: There is no good or evil. Only time, place, and circumstance.

My favorite fiction moral is the same as my personal philosophy, and can be summed up by quoting Baccano!'s Elmer Albatross: As far as I can tell, there's no meaning to life, so wouldn't it be better if everyone just smiled?

Happy nihilism is the name of the game, as far as I'm concerned. You could stress out about things, and sometimes, they're worth stressing out over, but when it comes down to it, it's not hard for people to be happy if they're willing to let stuff go. Apathy and inaction are not evil (I've always found that sentiment pretty laughable, myself), they're merely our means of dealing with a world that's far too big for us.

"Death is lighter than a feather, duty, heavier than a mountain." Lan. Wheel of time series.

And from SAO the idea that what we do to others in virtual spaces matters, and that grieving and being an asshole to other real people in those worlds kind of makes that person an asshole IRL.

the political messages in books like 1984 and Fahrenheit 451 are so relevant to the world today.
