I WILL place within them as a guide
My umpire, Conscience, whom, if they will hear,
Light after light well used they shall attain,
And, to the end persisting, safe arrive.
CONSCIENCE is the territory or dominion of God in man, which he hath so reserved to himself that no human power can possibly enter into it or dispose of it in any wise.
CONSCIENCE is authority,—divine authority, universal authority; or it is nothing. It is a right-royal power, that cannot stoop to serve: dethrone it, and it dies.
IF conscience had the power, as it has the right, it would rule the world.
