Guilt

Anais Nin:

Guilt is one burden human beings can’t bear alone.

Audre Lorde:

I have no creative use for guilt, yours or my own. Guilt is only another way of avoiding informed action, of buying time out of the pressing need to make clear choices, out of the approaching storm that can feed the earth as well as bend the trees.

Ellen Sue Stern:

Guilt is the next best thing to being there.

Erica Jong:

Show me a woman who doesn’t feel guilty and I’ll show you a man.

Erma Bombeck:

Guilt:

the gift that keeps on giving.

Joan Borysenko:

Guilt is the teacher, love is the lesson.

Joan Rivers:

My mother could make anybody feel guilty – she used to get letters of apology from people she didn’t even know.

Judith Viorst:

No-fault guilt:

This is when, instead of trying to figure out who’s to blame, everyone pays.

Lillian Hellman:

Guilt is often an excuse for not thinking.

Meg Wolitzer:

She felt that old generic guilt, the kind you feel even when you can’t think of what in the world you are supposed to have done.

Mary Shelley:

Ah! It is well for the unfortunate to be reassigned, but for the guilty there is no peace.
