Brandon Sanderson
“Sometimes it is very useful to have a reputation for being a reclusive, amoral jerk.”
Brandon Sanderson, Legion

Joyce Carol Oates
“For the writer, the serial killer is, abstractly, an analogue of the imagination's caprices and amorality; the sense that, no matter the dictates and even the wishes of the conscious social self, the life or will or purpose of the imagination is incomprehensible, unpredictable.”
Joyce Carol Oates

Stefan Zweig
“In so much firm, pleasure-loving flesh, we cannot find the merest trace of a moral nervous system. That explains the whole enigma of Casanova's subtle genius. Lucky man that he is, he has only sensuality, and lacks the first beginnings of a soul. Bound by no ties, having no fixed aim, restrained by no prudent considerations, he can move at a different tempo from his fellow mortals, who are burdened with moral scruples, who aim at an ethical goal, who are tied by notions of social responsibility. That is the secret of his unique impetus, of his incomparable energy.”
Stefan Zweig, Casanova: A Study in Self-Portraiture

Iris Murdoch
“This is an age of demons and amoral angels and all sorts of deep fears, like the first centuries of the Christian era, it's an age of extreme solutions.”
Iris Murdoch, The Message to the Planet

Criss Jami
“The consequence model, the logical one, the amoral one, the one which refuses any divine intervention, is a problem really for just the (hypothetical) logician. You see, towards God I would rather be grateful for Heaven (which I do not deserve) than angry about Hell (which I do deserve). By this the logician within must choose either atheism or theism, but he cannot possibly through good reason choose anti-theism. For his friend in this case is not at all mathematical law: the law in that 'this equation, this path will consequently direct me to a specific point'; over the alternative and the one he denies, 'God will send me wherever and do it strictly for his own sovereign amusement.' The consequence model, the former, seeks the absence of God, which orders he cannot save one from one's inevitable consequences; hence the angry anti-theist within, 'the logical one', the one who wants to be master of his own fate, can only contradict himself - I do not think it wise to be angry at math.”
Criss Jami, Healology

James Comey
“Amoral leaders have a way of revealing the character of those around them. Sometimes what they reveal is inspiring. For example, James Mattis, the former secretary of defense, resigned over principle, a concept so alien to Mr. Trump that it took days for the president to realize what had happened, before he could start lying about the man.”
James Comey

Debasish Mridha
“I am neither moral or immoral. I am amoral, and I express it through my kindness.”
Debasish Mridha

“There is no need to degrade and destroy any society; where its media does that, and its officials are corrupt and amoral.”
Ehsan Sehgal

“Those who climb the corporate ladder of lies and deception will sooner or later fall off the shaky steps.”
Khang Kijarro Nguyen

Raul Brandão
“As grandes figuras morais são sempre uma calamidade para si e para os outros. O universo é amoral, e não há como os acomodatícios, com alguma hipocrisia ao seu dispor... Os outros só fazem a sua desgraça e a desgraça dos que os rodeiam.”
Raul Brandão, Memórias
