Excerpt from The Teachings of Thomas Henry Huxley
The purpose of a life, the central idea about which all its activities revolve must ever be the criterion by which posterity shall judge of its efficiency. It is not how much nor how well nor yet how ill the work has been done, but Why was it done The motif of an act is often all that is required to recommend or to condemn it at once. If the motif was bad the results can scarcely be other than bad; and if the motif be good the end-results can be criticized only from the standpoint of comparative worth. Many a good thought or act has been spoiled in the making or the doing; but a bad thought or act can never be made over into goodness by any process of juggling or craft. It is conceived in death and destruction at the very outset.
