‘deep within us presides the judge’

“…deep within us presides the judge, the inextinguishable light of reason, the just discrimination between true and false, between good and evil, and the inexorable goad of conscience. Through this law, which has been imparted to all, God directs all things to the common good…”

Marsilio Ficino ‘Gardens of Philosophy: Ficino on Plato’ Arthur Farndell (Translator)
