Conscience Quotes

Conscience is that troublemaker that drives the sleep out of your eyes when you have gone against it. It is that faculty that will be the first one to stop you from doing any wrong that goes against your moral evaluations. In short, conscience is the only factor, if you follow it, which will keep you in the straight path. However, the power of conscience can be quite fragile compared to your will to do wrong, but after the deed is done, its pinch will he the sharpest, which one can call guilt. So, no matter what, always heed to your conscience. The conscience quotes given below will give you a deeper understanding of this intuition.
