      Well, we've had the "absolute" debate before, you and me, so I really won't access that category.  I can tell you what I think is important though.

      Integrity.  Strong integrity requires honesty with one's self and others.  With it one gains that drive to succeed.  With it one becomes trustworthy.  To me integrity is at the very foundation of character building.  All other things that go into character are built upon it.

        Sometimes integrity is better witheld. If your wife asked you if you thinks she looks fat and you thought yes, would you stick to your integrity or say something to make her feel good?

          I see your point.  I believe integrity also involves empathy towards they ways others feel.  Good integrity would choose words wisely in the face of others - especially a spouse.

          Point well taken.

      you mean one moral rule that has no justification for being broken?

      'k, i can think of one - deliberately inflicting harm or abuse onto a child. there is no excuse or justification for this, ever.

    Love. Not sexual attraction, but patient, kind, charitable benevolence. If everyone followed it, we wouldn't have any of the problems we bring upon ourselves and pile on each other.

      I partly agree. I think some love is blind. If you make people dependent on you out of love, it can keep them from learning to rely on themselves.

    Any chosen action that benefits society without harming society. smile

      I think I agree. In governments they fight over who gets to make the choice of what benefits and what harms.
