On Conscience

   He that loses his conscience has nothing left that is worth 

   A good conscience needs never sneak.

   A quiet conscience sleeps in thunder.

   A clear conscience can bear any trouble.

   A good conscience is the best divinity.

   The worst man is least troubled by his conscience.

   An evil conscience is always fearful and unquiet.

   A good conscience is a choice companion.

   A guilty conscience needs no accusing.

   Hearken to the warnings of conscience, if you would not feel 
   its wounds.

   My dominion ends where that of conscience begins.    

   Thou shalt rest sweetly if thy heart condemn thee not.    
                                                T. a Kempis

   The glory of the good is in their consciences, and not in the 
   tongues of men.    
                                                 T. a Kempis

   Man's conscience is the oracle of God.


   Conscience is the reason, employed about questions of right and 
   wrong, and accompanied with the sentiments of approbation or 


   A tender conscience is an inestimable blessing; that is, a 
   conscience not only quick to discern what is evil, but 
   instantly to shun it, as the eyelid closes itself against the 

                                                     N. Adams

   Conscience is merely our own judgment of the right or wrong of 
   our actions, and so can never be a safe guide unless 
   enlightened by the word of God. 

                                                    Tryon Edwards 

   The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to 
   stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to 
   mistake it. 

                                                Mad. de Stael

   Conscience is the voice of the soul, as the passions are the 
   voice of the body. No wonder they often contradict each other. 

   Conscience, in most men, is but the anticipation of the 
   opinions of others. 

   We never do evil so thoroughly and heartily as when led to it 
   by an honest but perverted, because mistaken, conscience. 

                                                 Tryon Edwards

   There is no witness so terrible -- no accuser so powerful -- 
   as conscience which dwells within us. 


   Conscience warns us as a friend before it punishes as a judge. 


   Conscience tells us that we ought to do right, but it does not 
   tell us what right is -- that we are taught by God's word. 
                                              H. C. Trumbull

   A disciplined conscience is a man's best friend.  It may not be 
   his most amiable, but it is his most faithful monitor. 
                                                 A. Phelps

   Cowardice asks, Is it safe? Expediency asks, Is it politic? 
   Vanity asks, Is it popular?  but Conscience asks, Is it right? 


   It is astonishing how soon the whole conscience begins to 
   unravel if a single stitch drops.   One single sin indulged in 
   makes a hole you could put your head through. 

                                                     C. Buxton
