Morals and Ethics

http://www.diffen.com/difference/Ethics_vs_Moral

If ethics are the standards we expect to be upheld by society (external), and morals are the standards we set for ourselves (internal), then in theory, one can be highly ethical but completely immoral.

I am stronger in ethics than in morals, but I wouldn’t say my ethics are necessarily those of the rest of society.

It is unethical and/or immoral to need a new word.
