Quotations on Conscience




“There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.”

                                                         Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.




“‘Atticus, you must be wrong.’

‘How’s that?’

‘Well, most folks seem to think they’re right and you’re wrong. . .’

‘They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions,’ said Atticus, ‘but 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.'”

                                          Harper Lee To Kill A Mockingbird




“I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year’s fashions”

                                                                          Lillian Hellman
