And, because right is right, to follow right
Were wisdom in the scorn of consequence.“

„In your own mind, you are always right. Every action you take--what you do or say or how you choose to appear--is automatically right the moment you act.“

—  Chuck Palahniuk American novelist, essayist 1962
Context: "It's not a matter of right and wrong," Mr. Whittier would say. Really, there is no wrong. Not in our minds. Our own reality. You can never set off to do the wrong thing. You can never say the wrong thing. In your own mind, you are always right. Every action you take--what you do or say or how you choose to appear--is automatically right the moment you act. Chapter 4
