We often heard of "the ends justify the means" debate. As long as the result is good, then it doesn't matter what we do to get the result. Some may agree and some may not. I'm curious though whether "intentions justify the ends" (and if yes then, intentions could justify both ends and means). What if our intentions are good, we do x action, and get a bad result. Can we justify the whole thing saying "it wasn't my intention"? As long as our intentions are good, no matter how we fail in achieving it or how the results of our actions didn't lead to our desired intention, can the means and and ends be justified?
