Your conscience is the measure of the honesty of your selfishness. Listen to it carefully.
Richard Bach quotes
Every human being has a work to carry on within, duties to perform abroad, influence to exert, which are peculiarly his, and which no conscience but his own can teach.
William Ellery Channing quotes
Conscience is thoroughly well-bred and soon leaves off talking to those who do not wish to hear it.
Samuel Butler quotes
No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprises of the civil authority.
Thomas Jefferson quotes
Reason often makes mistakes but conscience never does.
Josh Billings quotes
The nearest way to come at glory, is to do that for conscience which we do for glory.
Benjamin Franklin quotes
An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
What stronger breastplate than a heart untainted! Thrice is he armed that hath his quarrel just, and he but naked, though locked up in steel, whose conscience with injustice is corrupted.
William Shakespeare quotes
Last, but by no means least, courage - moral courage, the courage of one's convictions, the courage to see things through. The world is in a constant conspiracy against the brave. It's the age-old struggle - the roar of the crowd on one side and the voice of your conscience on the other.
Douglas MacArthur quotes
Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking.
Henry Louis Mencken quotes
