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!

Answer:

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.
