What does this quote mean?

This is a quote from "Rite Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption." I need someone to explain to me what it means, because I'm having a hard time understanding what it means:

"Sure you have," Andy agreed. "But you don't do it. Because guys like us, Red, we know there's a third choice. An alternative to staying simon-pure or bathing in the filth and the slime. It's the alternative that grown-ups all over the world pick. You balance off your walk through the hog-wallow against what it gains you. You choose the lesser of two evils and try to keep your good intentions in front of you. And I guess you judge how well you're doing by how well you sleep at night... and what your dreams are like."

Thank you!

It's hard to keep on doing right when everyone around you is doing wrong. You have to walk a straight line of your own making, pick a balance between badness and goodness. You can tell if you're succeeding by whether you can face yourself in the mirror or sleep well at night.
