Conscience is the true guide of man

Conscience is the voice of the soul, the passions are the voice of the body. Is it astonishing that often these two languages contradict each other, and then to which must we listen? Too often reason deceives us; we have only too much acquired the right of refusing to listen to it; but conscience never deceives us; it is the true guide of man; it is to man what instinct is to the body; which follows it, obeys nature, and never is afraid of going astray.
良心は、決して私たちを裏切ることはなく、人類の真のガイドである。良心と魂との関係は、本能と体との関係に等しい。良心に従う者は誰もが、人間本来の性質に沿った道をたどるのであり、誤りへと導かれるのを心配する必要はない。
