a clean conscience makes a soft pillow

proverb If one has no feelings of guilt or remorse, then they are able to rest more easily. I have always lived an honest, upright life, and let me tell you, a clean conscience makes a soft pillow. A: "I'm so torn up over what I did! I feel like I haven't slept properly in weeks." B: "You really need to tell Jonathan the truth—you'll feel a lot better if you do. A clean conscience makes a soft pillow, after all."
