People who have tried it, tell me that a clear conscience makes you very happy and contented; but a full stomach does the business quite as well, and is cheaper, and more easily obtained.

I love this quote.what a great sense of humor he has and he is right,unless of course murder or something as serious is on one's conscience. Christmas cookies easily make up for the guilt I'm feeling for this year sending cards out only to those I never see or with whom I communicate daily.

It worked for me. Baked cookies to send to somebody, then ate them myself because they would break in the mail, since they were very fragil. Send son the recipe instead.

Guilt is such a wasted emotion. I hate the expression "guilty pleasures" - why does one feel bad about something one enjoys? Feel bad? don't do the thing, feel good about it? then it's ok for you. I will admit to some minor vices, but I don't beat myself up about them.

RE: 15 December 2010

This may be true, but if my stomach is full b/c I've eaten too much of whatever I shouldn't have, i.e., ice cream, brownies, chocolate chip cookies, corn chips--the list is longer, but I'll stop there--I feel neither happy nor contented. :>(

(Fortunately for my conscience, I truly don't overindulge very often.)
