Reader comments about this quote:
I guess, for those shallow enough not to have a substantive inner morality. My conscience goes off on my inner knowledge of right and wrong, no matter who is looking.

    Most sublimely, in actuality, conscience is the inner voice that warns us that Somebody Not Of This World is looking.

    Yes, but even if I am alone, with no one interested, my conscience is still in use. My heart is always beating, whether right-side up or upside-down..
