Freedom and law, ethics and morals according to Kant

Morality
Personality would be what moves free will while respecting the moral law.
It determines with the will an action in accordance with its representation of the laws for an objective or subjectively desired purpose, while it is only a means that makes the action possible.
The supreme principle of humanity places its own purpose in everyone, binds us not to act against it, and imposes respect and love for others, to promote one’s own perfection and the happiness of others.
Faith in the highest good cannot be commanded, but the admission of a moral law leads to a proportion between happiness and merit; such harmony can lead to a moral interest in faith and a willingness to duty.
Although subject to the law, duty confers dignity on those who comply it and places a moral value on action.
To feel free, man even seeks motives to transgress, doubting and quibbling over any moral command contrary to self-love.
Yet God strengthens freedom, perfects morality, helps in success, requires free and responsible choices and actions and rewards individual efforts.
Providence leaves free to adhere to reason and to realize the good, while nature collaborates by animating the activity with interest for a purpose.
