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.

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

“Lucas heard a strange sound, something he hadn’t heard in months. At first it didn’t seem real, it was something distant from the past. It was the first time in nearly a year he had heard himself laugh, and it momentarily stunned him”
Mark A. Cooper, The Edelweiss Express

“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

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

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

“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

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

“When people can get away with crimes just because they are wealthy or have the right connections, the scales are tipped against fairness and equality. The weight of corruption then becomes so heavy that it creates a dent that forces the world to become slanted, so much so — that justice just slips off.”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Stefan Molyneux
“Guilt is a feeling that you owe a debt that you're not paying.”
Stefan Molyneux

“Do you ever feel guilty?” she asked, clutching a flower to her chest.

Michael Faudet, Smoke & Mirrors

Abhaidev

Abhaidev, The Influencer: Speed Must Have a Limit

"Not guilty."

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

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

A.D. Aliwat
“All information is guilty until proven innocent.”
A.D. Aliwat, In Limbo

Jean Baudrillard
“We shall never know now whether Nazism, the concentration camps or Hiroshima were intelligible or not: we are no longer part of the same mental universe. Victim and executioner are interchangeable, responsibility is diffrangible, dissoluble - such are the virtues of our marvellous interface. We no longer have the strength that forgetting gives: our amnesia is an amnesia of the image. Since everyone is guilty, who will declare an amnesty? As for autopsy, no one believes any longer in the anatomical accuracy of the facts: we have only models to work on. Even supposing the facts lay shining bright before our eyes, they would still not have the power to prove or convince. Consider how continual scrutiny of Nazism, of the gas chambers and so on, has merely rendered them less and less comprehensible, so that it has eventually become logical to ask an incredible question: 'But, in the last reckoning, did all those things really exist?' The question is perhaps an intolerable one, but the interesting thing here is what it is that makes it logically possible. And in fact what makes it possible is the media's way of replacing any event, any idea, any history, with any other, with the result that the more we scrutinize the facts, the more carefully we study details with a view to identifying causes, the greater is the tendency for them to cease to exist, and to cease to have existed.”
Jean Baudrillard, The Transparency of Evil: Essays in Extreme Phenomena

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Sometimes, the mistake is not the problem; the lack of remorse is the real mistake.”
Michael Bassey Johnson, The Book of Maxims, Poems and Anecdotes

Sarvesh Jain
“Don't feel guilty for the things you shouldn't feel guilty about. Your heart was in the right place, and certain things happen without any reason. It's nobody's fault.”
