    From this influence of morals on actions and affections, it follows that they are not derived from reason, which, it has been shown (Book II, Part III, Section III), can never have this influence. Reason "of itself is utterly impotent" to excite passions or influence any actions. "The rules of morality, therefore, are not conclusions of reason.". Similarly with regard to actions also there is excess, defect, and the intermediate.
