Moral and ethics are of high importance in determining the nature of a society or a culture. Morals and ethics are used as complimentary terms but they mean different in literal sense.

Morals define personal character and refer to the beliefs that a person practices when he interacts in personal and social relationships. The conduct exhibited by the person in personal-social behaviors gives a correct evaluation of his morals. Morals identify the way a person lives. Ethics are the codes or standards of conduct expected by the group to which the individual belongs.

In other words, ethics are the set of principals or the theory that decide a person’s moral values. Ethics can also be defined as the manual defining the code of morals. The presence of qualities showing high ethics in a person is termed as morality.
