A Thought for Today

Reason often makes mistakes, but conscience never does. -Josh Billings, columnist and humorist (1818-1885) 

Conscience, in this example, refers to that feeling of guilt when you do something wrong. So, is he saying that we often make mistakes regarding reason but are always saved by our conscience? Or is he saying that there are often unreasonable things, but never things that are not conscientious? This is a bit confusing, because it's one of those things that sound easy to understand but aren't really, and its profound meaning is quite interesting.

Luv ya lots!
