A peace above all earthly dignities,
A still and quiet conscience. ~ Henry VIII by William Shakespeare In the majority of cases, conscience is an elastic and very flexible article. ~ The Old Curiosity Shop by Charles Dickens "The confusion of marriage with morality has done more to destroy the conscience of the human race than any other single error." ~ Man And Superman by George Bernard Shaw "You people with hearts," he said, "have something to guide you, and need never do wrong." ~ The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum A story with a moral appended is like the bill of a mosquito. It bores you, and then injects a stinging drop to irritate your conscience. ~ Strictly Business by O. Henry "If he has a conscience he will suffer for his mistake. That will be his punishment--as well as the prison." ~ Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky Conscience is a coward, and those faults it has not strength enough to prevent, it seldom has justice enough to accuse. ~ The Vicar of Wakefield by Oliver Goldsmith For, what other dungeon is so dark as one's own heart!
