An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
form of writing raised to the highest level of expressive communication. Carl William Brown



 Ah, how steadily do they who are guilty shrink from reproof!


Amelia Jenks Bloomer


A stiff apology is a second insult. The injured party does not want to be compensated because he has been wronged; he wants to be healed because he has been hurt.


Gilbert K. Chesterton (1874-1936, British author)


Never make a defense or apology before you are accused.


Charles I (1600-1649, King of England and Ireland)


I've arrived at this outermost edge of my life by my own actions. Where I am is thoroughly unacceptable. Therefore, I must stop doing what I have been doing.


Alice Koller


I believe we are solely responsible for our choices, and we have to accept the consequences of every deed, word, and thought throughout our lifetime.


Elisabeth Kubler-Ross (1926-2004, Swiss-born American psychiatrist)


Well, excuuuuuse me!!!!


Steve Martin (1945-, American actor, comedian, screenwriter, playwright, writer)


An apology? Bah! Disgusting! Cowardly! Beneath the dignity of any gentleman, however wrong he might be.
