We cannot live better than in seeking to become better, nor more agreeably than in having a clear conscience. (Socrates)

Our conscience is everything, one may become very much inclined to make impaired decisions, without a clear pattern of thoughts.  It is mentally a waste of time to consistently act without thinking first.  There is a direct connection between what we feel in our soul, in terms of doing what we need to, and what is thought out clearly in our heads.  Our conscience allows us to make well-informed decisions, weighing out the pros versus the cons.  When I think of a conscience thinker, a person who is well prepared for the world comes to mind.

The voice of conscience is so delicate that it is easy to stifle it; but it is also so clear that it is impossible to mistake it. (Mad. de Stael)

It is ridiculously easy to ignore our conscience and go along with the moment.  Although the result is partially not the conclusion we expected, but instead perhaps it was a possibility which did come to mind beforehand, however we chose to go along with the ambiguous decision.  I can vividly remember the numerous amounts of multiple choice questions on exams that I had gotten wrong in the past, because of this.

Over time I have learned to listen to this voice of reason, which depicts the best unambiguous decision.  We must act consciously to see what it is that we cannot in a moments notice.  People who build things, plan out their ideas, in order to create infrastructure.  The same applies to our actions, we must think out our best thoughts, in order to ensure that the decisions we make will conclude the outcome we want and deserve.
