The church was not merely a thermometer that recorded the ideas and principles of popular opinion; it was a thermostat that transformed the mores of society. - Martin Luther King Jr.
You can't move so fast that you try to change the mores faster than people can accept it. That doesn't mean you do nothing, but it means that you do the things that need to be done according to priority. - Eleanor Roosevelt
When mores are sufficient, laws are unnecessary; when mores are insufficient, laws are unenforceable. - Émile Durkheim
