Famous quotes containing the word apology:

    Our systems, perhaps, are nothing more than an unconscious apology for our faults—a gigantic scaffolding whose object is to hide from us our favorite sin.
    Henri-Frédéric Amiel (1821–1881)

    The Irishman in English literature may be said to have been born with an apology in his mouth.
    James Connolly (1870–1916)

    Senators and presidents have climbed so high with pain enough, not because they think the place specially agreeable, but as an apology for real worth, and to vindicate their manhood in our eyes. This conspicuous chair is their compensation to themselves for being of a poor, cold, hard nature.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
