What They Do

“People know what they do; frequently they know why they do what they do; but what they don't know is what what they do does.”

― Michel Foucault, Madness and Civilization

A good quote but I should say that it could have been expressed more simply.
"People know what they are doing and frequently why, but rarely do they know the consequences."
A very profound thought I must say and the basis of the the Indian idea of Karma.
