Why do the right thing?

I think morality in the face of difficulty is an act of beauty.  I think doing the right thing, when it is hard, is an act of beauty.  It is painting something memorable, something moving, something mythic, on the canvas of your life.

And even cultivating beauty when it is easy is worthwhile.  We are all wild animals.  All we have to do to become angels is remember this, and remember at the same time that we are human beings.  The collision does the rest.
