Guilt Quotes


Guilt is so easy to give others and so ready to accept ourselves, but what is guilt anyway? Guilt quotes help us understand this self-inflicted form of punishment, which makes us feel bad for doing something that may have been completely just and moral. Often, guilt comes from the reactions of those around us who wish to judge us or control us. Guilt quotes can help us see the folly of this, or at least the humor of it. Guilt will never go away, but we can put it into context, realizing that we all live by our own moral compass and that guilt is really a sliding scale that exists between what we believe is right and what others believe is right for us.

She exists for one purpose: to bear and nourish the son." Adrienne Rich
