Although often attributed to Washington, this is another of the sayings he wrote down when he was about 12 years old. Conscience can be a tricky thing, but I often use it to decide whether a particular course of conduct is correct. Which one will allow me to sleep at night, and look others in the eye? I do realize that when we make such decisions we are rarely making a choice between black and white. Rather, I am often choosing between different shades of gray. Which is the lesser of two evils? I have the same sort of crisis of conscience when I decide who to vote for. I defy anybody to wholeheartedly say they agree with every single policy in a party’s manifesto. For me it would be a matter of deciding which raft of policies comes closer to my personal preferences.
