Grocott & Ward, comps.  Grocott’s Familiar Quotations, 6th ed.  189-?.
 
Conscience
 
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought;
And enterprizes of great pith and moment,
With this regard, their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.
        Shakespeare.—Hamlet, Act III. Scene 1. (His Soliloquy.)
  1
Trust that man in nothing, who has not a conscience in every thing.
        Sterne.—Tristram Shandy, Vol. II. Chap. XVII, and Sermon 27.
