Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty,
“Want to keep Christ in Christmas? Feed the hungry, clothe the naked, forgive the guilty, welcome the unwanted, care for the ill, love your enemies, and do unto others as you would have done unto you.”
Steve Maraboli, Unapologetically You: Reflections on Life and the Human Experience

Turcois Ominek

Turcois Ominek

Veronica Roth
“What do you think they're going to do to us when they find us guilty?" she says after a few minutes of silence have passed.
"Honestly?"
"Does now seem like the time for honesty?"
I look at her from the corner of my eye. "I think they're going to force us to eat lots of cake and then take an unreasonably long nap.”
Veronica Roth, Insurgent

Sigmund Freud
“Where the questions of religion are concerned people are guilty of every possible kind of insincerity and intellectual misdemeanor.”
Sigmund Freud, The Future of an Illusion

Nicholas Sparks

“When hatred judges, the verdict is just guilty.”
Toba Beta, My Ancestor Was an Ancient Astronaut

Franz Kafka
“But I’m not guilty,” said K. “there’s been a mistake. How is it even possible for someone to be guilty? We’re all human beings here, one like the other.” “That is true” said the priest “but that is how the guilty speak”
Franz Kafka, The Trial

Jeff Lindsay
“It was such an unexpected and genuine smile that if I only had a soul I'm sure I would have felt quite guilty.”
Jeff Lindsay, Darkly Dreaming Dexter

Emily Thorne
“In it's purest form, an act of retribution provides symmetry. The rendering payment of crimes against the innocent. But a danger on retaliation lies on the furthering cycle of violence. Still, it's a risk that must be met; and the greater offense is to allow the guilty go unpunished.”
Emily Thorne

“Never judge someone's character based on the words of another. Instead, study the motives behind the words of the person casting the bad judgment. An honest woman can sell tangerines all day and remain a good person until she dies, but there will always be naysayers who will try to convince you otherwise. Perhaps this woman did not give them something for free, or at a discount. Perhaps too, that she refused to stand with them when they were wrong — or just stood up for something she felt was right. And also, it could be that some bitter women are envious of her, or that she rejected the advances of some very proud men. Always trust your heart. If the Creator stood before a million men with the light of a million lamps, only a few would truly see him because truth is already alive in their hearts. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them. He who does not have Truth in his heart, will always be blind to her.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Amit Abraham
“Don’t feel guilty for a crime you have not committed – commit it and be guilt free”
Amit Abraham

Tanith Lee
“The guilty are always the most prone to establish complementary guilt, and the most unforgiving thereafter.”
Tanith Lee, Red as Blood, or Tales from the Sisters Grimmer

“It's funny how guilty people start to question your spirituality and education only because they have nothing to say that will justify their faults.”
J.B. Albano

“The internet has become a carefully controlled and heavily monitored illusion. It has turned into both a circus and battleground. Popularity is rigged and can be bought. Censorship is in full effect. Popular opinion is fabricated, and the perception of a viewpoint's popularity is typically orchestrated and manipulated by legions of paid trolls. If you want to know the truth about somebody's true popularity and influence, look to the streets. If you want to know if a person is really guilty or innocent, study the facts yourself. Never judge anybody based on what you see or read on the internet. Information can easily be manipulated by the push of a few buttons.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Howard Tayler
“Captain, you have heard the charges. How do you plead? Before you answer, you should know that if you plead "guilty" you'll be immediately extradited and U.N.S. law will take over."

"Not guilty."

"Also, it's not very nice to lie in court."

"But it beats extradition.”
Howard Tayler, Emperor Pius Dei

Charlotte Dacre
“Dare my guilty heart admit the horrible acknowledgement that I love you still?”
Charlotte Dacre, Zofloya

Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Looks sure can be deceiving: not every ‘ugly’ person is a ‘bad’ person (or is guilty of whatever it is that they are accused of).”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“AIDS would have claimed fewer lives if we had publicly recommended what I wish to call ‘The Presumption of Sickness,’ i.e., the principle that whomever we are about to sleep with is HIV-positive until proven HIV-negative.”
Mokokoma Mokhonoana

“When they go out of their way explaining and insisting especially if they haven't been confronted...

They are guilty as sin...”
Dru Edmund Kucherera

Elizabeth F. Loftus
“Some who question the authenticity of the memories of abuse do so in part because of the intensity and sincerity of the accused persons who deny the abuse . . . the current denials of those accused of sexual abuse are not proof that the allegations are false. Research with known rapists, pedophiles, and incest offenders has illustrated that they often exhibit a cognitive distortion –a tendency to justify, minimize, or rationalize their behavior (Gudjonsson, 1992). Because accused persons are motivated to verbally and even mentally deny an abusive past, simple denials cannot constitute cogent evidence that the victim’s memories are not authentic.
Loftus, E. (1993). The reality of repressed memories. American Psychologist, 48, 518-537.”
Elizabeth F. Loftus

“Every one of us is guilty of something!”

Jane Austen
“To avoid a comparative poverty, which her affection and her society would have deprived of all its horrors, I have, by raising myself to affluence, lost everything that could make it a blessing.”
Jane Austen, Sense and Sensibility

Walt Whitman
“Undrape! you are not guilty to me, nor stale nor discarded,
I see through the broadcloth and gingham whether or no,
And am around, tenacious, acquisitive, tireless, and cannot be shaken away.”
Walt Whitman, Song of Myself

Nelson Algren
“That's how it's always been: I was always in the clear so long as I was truly guilty. But the minute my motives were honest someone would finger me.”
Nelson Algren, The Neon Wilderness

“If guilt can cause heartache, then I've definitely experienced it. Seeing Ivy hunched over and crying for probably the first time in her really long life is making me feel like the worst person in the world. With her tears streaked face in her hands, she looks so fragile, vulnerable, and human.
I come forwards and give her a hug.”
Colleen Boyd, Swamp Angel

Jordi Balaguer
“Huir es muy fácil. Es tan fácil como dar un paso detrás de otro y dejar el camino a tus espaldas. [...] Lo difícil no es huir. Lo difícil no es moverse. Lo difícil es... pararse a pensar.”
Jordi Balaguer, La maldición de Gryal

“Before you reprimand or condemn people on a particular act, make sure you have worked on yourself over time such that you can't be found guilty of such act; if not you will be a victim of your own laws and rules”
Topsy Gift

“The guilt you felt
when you were smiling
and others were suffering,
the guilt you felt
when you were petty with friends
and impatient with your parents,
when you were rude to your teachers
and didn’t stand up for strangers,
that guilt
is marvellous.
It proves that you are human,
that you want to be better.
Thank this guilt for teaching you,
for making you aware.
And now endeavour to better yourself.
It is a lifelong work to become
the person we want to be.”
Kamand Kojouri
