    I think you meant "the end justifies the means" – AleksandrH Jul 3 '17 at 23:25

You are proably looking for "the end justifies the means". Wiktionary defines it as:

Morally wrong actions are sometimes necessary to achieve morally right outcomes; actions can only be considered morally right or wrong by virtue of the morality of the outcome.
