Science & conscience(From the novel: Les Misérables)by Victor Hugo

...I mean that man is ruled by a tyrant whose name is Ignorance, and that is the tyrant I sought to overthrow. That is the tyrant which gave birth to monarchy, and monarchy is authority based on falsehood, whereas knowledge is authority based on truth. Man should be ruled by knowledge alone."
"And conscience," added the bishop."It's the same thing. Conscience is the quota of innate science we each have inside us."
Victor Hugo,Les Misérables
