What I’ve learnt to my cost on several occasions in my life, is that people will put up with all manner of bad behaviour so long as you’re giving them what they want.

They’ll wipe their hands of you without a second glance. Russell Brand

An attitude of self love and relaxation facilitates this, whereas guilt often interferes. David D. Burns

Parents who discipline their child by discussing the consequences of their actions produce children who have better moral development, compared to children whose parents use authoritarian methods and punishment. Simon Baron Cohen

If a hungry lion suddenly appeared, you’d be terrified. So terrified you’d probably run away. Great, fear’s doing its job. But you might get so afraid that you lock up and can’t move. This would be very bad. Guilt’s the same. It can prevent you from fixing the situation, make you feel so bad you can’t function at 100% and even lead to more guilt provoking bad behavior. David D. Burns

Behaviour is a mirror in which every one displays his own image. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Bad beliefs make bad behavior. Warren Akin Candler

Awkward silences rule the world. People are so terrified of awkward silences that they will literally go to war rather than face an awkward silence. Stefan Molyneux

We proclaim human intelligence to be morally valuable per se because we are human. If we were birds, we would proclaim the ability to fly as morally valuable per se. If we were fish, we would proclaim the ability to live underwater as morally valuable per se. But apart from our obviously self interested proclamations, there is nothing morally valuable per se about human intelligence. GaryLFrancione

Discipline isn’t a dirty word. Far from it. Discipline is the one thing that separates us from chaos and anarchy. Discipline implies timing. It’s the precursor to good behavior, and it never comes from bad behavior. People who associate discipline with punishment are wrong with discipline, punishment is unnecessary. Buck Brannaman

Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you act. George Crane

Only criminals and bloodsuckers reward bad behavior. Ted Nugent

Part of the problem about authenticity is that virtues aren’t the only things that are habit forming the more someone behaves in a way that is damaging to self or to others, the more natural it will both seem and actually be. Spontaneity, left to itself, can begin by excusing bad behavior and end by congratulating vice. N. T. Wright

When an accusation is thrown at you that does not fit you, when it doesn’t capture what you know to be true about yourself or your behavior, mentally flip it back on your partner. He is likely accusing you of what he is doing or feeling. Accusations can be about the narcissist’s own vulnerabilities and weaknesses accusing you of being overly ambitious when he is ambitious, criticizing you for being unsuccessful or not making enough money when he is not feeling successful in that space Ramani Durvasula

Genetically influenced behavior is not necessarily good and not necessarily unchangeable. Explanations of bad behavior that appeal to genes do not absolve a person any more than do explanations that appeal to upbringing. Steven Pinker

The surest way to work up a crusade in favor of some good cause is to promise people they will have a chance of maltreating someone.

Aldous Huxley

If behavior is contagious, is yours worth catching? Frank Sonnenberg

Once and for all, people must understand that addiction is a disease. It’s critical if we’re going to effectively prevent and treat addiction. Accepting that addiction is an illness will transform our approach to public policy, research, insurance, and criminality; it will change how we feel about addicts, and how they feel about themselves. There’s another essential reason why we must understand that addiction is an illness and not just bad behavior We punish bad behavior. We treat illness. David Sheff

It’s clearly a crisis of two things of consciousness and conditioning. We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war; But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it’s not easy. Terence McKenna

Five hundred thousand Americans die from tobacco poisoning every year, and it’s legal. I don’t know, it just that’s the you can’t stop giving people organs because of bad behavior. If you keep on having bad behavior, then, of course, they’ll deny you a liver, or whatever you need. Larry Hagman

When arguments turn into war, silence can bring peace. Sukant Ratnakar

I think having the opportunity to get inside the skin of people that operate outside the law and normal moral and ethical restraints, and then to go home afterwards leaving them on set, is pretty cathartic.
