Ethics Is Disturbing

We hope for lives whose story leaves us looking admirable; we like our weaknesses to be hidden and deniable. ...  We want to enjoy our lives, and we want to enjoy them with a good conscience. ...  Ethics is disturbing.

-- Simon Blackburn (1944 -), British academic philosopher known for his work in quasi-realism and his efforts to popularise philosophy, Being Good (2001)
