Doublets: Conscience

atkins-bookshelf-quotations“Before I can live with other folks I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

Atticus Finch explaining to Scout why he has chosen to represent Tom Robinson in a murder case, in To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee (1926-2016)

“The function of wisdom is to discriminate between good and evil.”

Cicero (106-43 BC)
