„“Conscience is only social pressure,” he told her, tense without quite knowing why, “the impulse to submerge your ego in that of the herd, and do what other people want you to because you’re afraid of their censure. Realistic self-interest frees a person from the childish restrictions of conscience.”
“Are you sure of that, Jarles? What about your dreams? Conscience may be partly what you say it is, but it’s more than that. It’s hearkening to the wisest thoughts that have occurred to the minds of the human race.”“
— Fritz Leiber American writer of fantasy, horror, and science fiction 1910 - 1992

„If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home and examine your conscience.“
