George Santayana on objective morality


Succinctly put :
For the human system whiskey is truly more intoxicating than coffee, and the contrary opinion would be an error; but what a strange way of vindicating this real, though relative, distinction, to insist that whiskey is more intoxicating in itself, without reference to any animal; that is is pervaded, as it were, by an inherent intoxication, and stands dead drunk in its bottle !
