The Human Conscience!

Though a man who has committed a sin and performed an iniquitous deed be successful in hiding from all men, yet from the judgment of his own conscience he cannot hide. On the contrary, he always bears about in himself this accuser, which disturbs him, torments him and never slackens. Like a diligent physician, it never ceases to offer its medicines; and though it is not obeyed, even then it does not let up, but continues constantly to be concerned; it continuously reminds us of sin, not allowing the sinner to come to oblivion, in order at least through this to make us not so inclined toward previous sins.
