"The Road to Hell is paved with good intentions"
The meaning of the phrase is that individuals may do bad things even though they intend the results to be good. This can stem from believing that the ends justifies the means, or from actions leading to unforeseen consequences. Employing means such as lying to keep a good colleague out of trouble, stealing to feed a hungry family, or cheating to win an election. Firmly believing that you are good and right, can make you blind to the opinions of others.

Struggling to say something very clever can force you into saying something rather dull instead... but the difference remains the same to the perceptive fellow.
