Variations on a theme:

“A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it the superficial appearance of being right.” – Thomas Paine

“To have a right to do a thing is not the same as to be right in doing it.” – G. K. Chesterton

“One of the misfortunes of our time is that in getting rid of false shame we have killed of so much real shame as well.” – Louis Kronenberger
