It is important to do what is right, not what is easy or convenient.
“‘What will people say?’ is pretty nearly always a very shabby question, but one which too many public men ask themselves when hesitating as to how they shall act, forgetting that the only questions ought to be, ‘What is really and truly right? what will men of experience and virtue think? or, what shall I have eventually to say to my own conscience on the subject?'”—Captain Basil Hall, RN from Fragments of Voyages and Travels (Volume II, Series II)
