I do not know what it is in us that (sometimes) will make us do a thing against our wishes because we know it to be good. ‘‘Conscience’’ is too thin a word, and ‘‘God’’ too misty, too spoiled by the many who mouth it con­stantly without any care for what they say. [. . .] The thing that I will not call Conscience or God (somewhere in the Old-Time books I think it was called Virtue, but doubtless few read them)- the thing that would never let me strike a child, or stone a criminal or a mue on the green as we are expected to do in Trempa- this mad cruel-sweet thing that may be a part of love commanded me to answer her. - Edgar Pangborn, ‘‘The Night Wind’’ (1974)
