Famous quotes containing the word motives:

    The proper office of religion is to regulate the heart of men, humanize their conduct, infuse the spirit of temperance, order, and obedience; and as its operation is silent, and only enforces the motives of morality and justice, it is in danger of being overlooked, and confounded with these other motives.
    David Hume (1711–1776)

    Men sometimes have strange motives for the things they do.
    Michael Reeves (1945–1969)

    The human mind is indeed a cave swarming with strange forms of life, most of them unconscious and unilluminated. Unless we can understand something as to how the motives that issue from this obscurity are generated, we can hardly hope to foresee or control them.
    Charles Horton Cooley (1864–1929)
