"From Sidgwick [ G. E. Moore ] might have learnt that good is ever our good, and from Spencer and Guyau that what we can and do perceive as good is not remote from the background of life which nurtures us. And so, having disposed of his intrinsic good, we might take courage against that fearsome naturalistic fallacy to seek into the conditions of, and therfore to ask what is, the meaning of good."--"G. E. Moore and Intrinsic Goodness" (1928) by Edward F. Mettrick

"Mr. Gladstone could tell us that "had the people of England obeyed the precept to eschew violence and maintain order, the liberties of this country would never have been obtained.""--"G. E. Moore and Intrinsic Goodness" (1928) by Edward F. Mettrick

"The whole [ intuitionist ] school must quail before the evidence of Westermarck's Origin and Development of Moral Ideas." --"G. E. Moore and Intrinsic Goodness" (1928) by Edward F. Mettrick
