- Laws control the lesser man. Right conduct controls the greater one.
Never do anything against conscience even if the state demands it.
But Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than any human authority.”
~Acts 5:29 (NLT)
An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.
~Martin Luther King Jr.
