Transcript of Morality in Lives of the Saints by Nino Ricci

Morality is Subjective
is the differentiation of intentions, decisions, and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and those that are improper.
Examples from the Novel
“I warn you, Cristi, you’ll bring a curse on everyone around you. It’s only for your father that people have kept quiet until now. But with the snake everyone has started to talk. I didn’t want to say it but you force me to, you think that people are fools, that they don’t see the way you carry on. But I don’t have to tell you the name that everyone is calling you.” (p. 54)

“For the first few days I was merely shunned, and could not make out the insults which they whispered to each other in class while they smirked at me from their desks; but by the end of the first week I had had another fight.” (p. 107)

Examples from the Novel
“For my sake! Was it for my sake you behaved like a common whore? Do you think you’re better than those people? They are my people, not you, not someone who could do what you’ve done. I’ve suffered every day of my life, per l’amore di Cristo, but I’ve never had to walk through this town and hang my head in shame. Now people come to my house like they go to the circus, to laugh at the clowns!” (p. 149)

“Three months ago, if I’d gone, not one of you would have come to see me off. I don’t know why it should be any different now.” (p. 185)
