    My father always told me that the difference of thinking and knowing the right thing to do was 18" long, from your brow down to your heart. Your heart is where the answers to all situations should come from. While your intelligence is birth through your brain, your true feelings and acting on the right thing to do comes from the heart. If you respond from your heart than most likely you will be able to act reasonably on any thoughts.
