Famous quotes containing the word guilt:

    Rock of ages, cleft for me,
    Let me hide myself in thee!
    Let the water and the blood,
    From thy riven side which flowed,
    Be of sin the double cure;
    Cleanse me from its guilt and pow’r.
    Augustus Montague Toplady (1740–1778)

    A bibulation of sports writers, a yammer of radio announcers, a guilt of umpires, an indigence of writers.
    Walter Wellesley (Red)

    Most people agree that men have trouble showing hurt, jealousy, and fear but even mothers, whose wider emotional range is often taken for granted, also seem more comfortable with anger than these other “unparentlike” feelings. This is probably because several generations of mothers have now been twelve-step-programmed and pop-psychologized enough to believe that expressing hurt, fear, anxiety, or dependence will create pathological guilt in their kids.
    Ron Taffel (20th century)
