How would you define morality & justice?

One of the biggest problems I find in any discussion involving morality, is that no one has any clear idea about what exactly morality is.

I also notice that all such discussions confuse morality with justice, leading to all sorts of strange contradictions.

So I would like to hear how people define both morality and justice. And whether their definitions are coherent or are indeed as confused and various as I predict.

To be slightly helpful, I think morality can be understood in terms of good and bad, while justice can be understood in terms of right and wrong.
