Moral

Moral,

Definition of Moral:

  1. Holding or manifesting high principles for proper conduct.

  2. A persons standards of behavior or beliefs concerning what is and is not acceptable for them to do.

  3. A lesson, especially one concerning what is right or prudent, that can be derived from a story, a piece of information, or an experience.

  4. Concerned with the principles of right and wrong behavior and the goodness or badness of human character.

  5. Private conduct based on strict adherence to a sanctioned or accepted code or dogma of what is right or wrong, particularly as proclaimed in a sacred book, or by a non-secular group or sect. Once practically interchangeable with ethical, this term has acquired quasi-religious connotations and has moved closer to righteous following the recent (second half of the 20th century) schism between private morality and public morality.
