Conscience is the understanding of the divine beginning which lives in us.
Conscience is the real judge between good and bad, conscience is what makes a person similar to God, and conscience is the greatest advantage of human nature. Without conscience there would be nothing that would raise us above the animals, and people would move from one lie to another.
— Jean Jacques Rousseau
The purpose of your life is not to do as the majority does, but to live according to the inner law which you understand in yourself. Do not act against your conscience or against truth. Live like this, and you will fulfill the task of your life.
— Marcus Aurelius
You cannot fight with the requirements of conscience. These are the rules of God, and it is better to submit to them.
