CONSCIENCE OF JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, JR. '
JOHN D. ROCKEFELLER, JR., TOLD A BIBLE CLASS. "The more I
see of this wol-ld the more convinced I am that the only thing worth striving
for is the attainment of righteousness. I believe that a clear conscience is
to be preferred to all the money in the world. The other day a man said
" 'Mr. Rockefeller,, I am' constantly losing opportunities because of my
desire to be honest in business.'
"My reply' to. that man ,was :
" 'Even if-you do not make all the money that you might earn by abandoning-your
honest course, my, friend, it must mean a great deahto you to
know that you can go down on your knees each night and commune with
your Maker with a clear conscience.' " '
