Consequences Quotes

Consequences are the results, direct or indirect, of one’s action. However, it would be foolhardy to construe that if the consequences are good then whatever the actions be, are justified. There is an open debate on whether the end justifies the means. If such is the case then one can justify any means and methods as long as the consequences are ideal. Consequences are the direct result of one’s choices, so it is necessary that what one chooses should be morally sound. To know why one should take into account the consequences before any action, read the consequences quotes given below.
