Labor to keep alive in you... that little spark of celestial fire, called conscience. - Washington

The Four Pillars to a Moral Life:

1. Respect for Persons/Autonomy

- Acknowledge a person’s right to make choices, to hold views, and to take actions based on personal values and beliefs.

2. Justice 

- Treat Others with Equity. Distribute benefits/burdens fairly.

3. Non-maleficence (First, Do No Harm)

- We have an Obligation not to inflict harm intentionally; In medical ethics, the physician’s guiding maxim is “First, do no harm.”

4. Beneficence (Do Good)

- We must Do Actions for the Benefit of Others.
