Something that society nowadays knows nothing of.

being moral is not proving something to others, being moral is proving something to yourself.

Being moral is not THINKING you know what you are doing is right, its KNOWING
what you are doing is right.

Being moral doesnt mean not watching TV, nor donating to charity (Although donating to charity is really awesome, it doesnt make a person good or worse than another, it just means that they are a very generous person)

Being moral is not adopting people from third world countries, or other things mentioned by people who have no idea what morality is.
For example: The Bible is what I consider a code of morals I follow by.

Being moral can best be described as being pure hearted, having chastity, having no sexual immorality, no drunkeness, being gentlemanly or womanly, being a good person, being good to others around you, having humility, going against what you know is wrong, being courageous in the face of adversity, and being noble.

Being moral is being true to yourself.

Always trying to do the right thing. Going against everyone else if everyone else is doing the wrong thing.
Telling the truth even if it is a circumstance that the person could get in trouble.

A word that is quite subjective, given that everybody has different morals. To say that some one can do "good", Good must first be defined. An act of moral goodness in one persons eyes may be abhorrent in anothers. To assert that one is a moral person would require that some definition of good be a universal constant, and due to the fact that everyone has different morals, we are left with few options.
B.There are no morals
PersonA: Eating meat is horrible!
PersonB: My Culture eats nothing but meat!
PersonA&B: You're evil an immoral!

Things that most people have which stop people from doing things that either:
1) are mean or unfair to other people or
2) have been outlawed by a higher power, such as the police or God, usually for the protection of others' health or rights.

Morals do not have a physical form, although some "codes of conduct" attempt to represent them.
Guy #1: Let's go steal some wallets!
Guy #2: But that's not fair to the people who own the wallets! You have such bad morals!

There are two types of morality:

1) Being moral for someone else
This first example would be like someone doing everything the Christian Church says to do just because everyone thinks the church is always right.
2) Being moral for oneself
The second example would be like someone doing what the believe is right. They would not do this thing for any reason other than they know for themselves that it is right.

Being moral does not mean a person is automatically a "wussy" or mean that they are in charities. It means only that when they are pressed to do the right thing, they do.
1) Jesus says to love my neighbor. Even though he is a murdurous pedaphile, I will be nice to him.
2) I turned in the murdurous pedaphile that lives next door because it was the right thing to do.

Moral implies making a sacrafice for a long term goal. It doesn't imply any specific code but just any code. A moral person could challenge and take down the Christian church.
