Samyutta Nikaya I.18

Hiri Sutta

Conscience


Who in the world
is a man constrained by conscience,
who awakens    to censure
like a fine stallion    to the whip?

Those restrained by conscience
    are rare --
those who go through life
    always mindful.
Having reached the end
    of suffering & stress,
they go through what is uneven
        evenly;
    go through what is out-of-tune
        in tune.
