Moral vs Morale

Don't get confused with moral and morale. Both have different meanings.

Morale means a state of individual psychological well-being based upon a sense of confidence and usefulness and purpose whereas Moral means:
# concerned with principles of right and wrong or conforming to standards of behavior and character based on those principles; "moral sense"
# the significance of a story or event; "the moral of the story is to love thy neighbor"
# psychological rather than physical or tangible in effect; "a moral victory"; "moral support"
