“Atticus, you must be wrong.”

 
“How’s that?”

 
“Well, most folks seem to think they’re right and you’re wrong. . .”

 
“They’re certainly entitled to think that, and they’re entitled to full respect for their opinions,” said Atticus, “but before I can live with other folks, I’ve got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn’t abide by majority rule is a person’s conscience.”

—Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
