A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on apologies, character, heart, order, pity, principles, security, and strength

It takes a great deal of character strength to apologize quickly out of one's heart rather than out of pity. A person must possess himself and have a deep sense of security in fundamental principles and values in order to genuinely apologize.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on apologies, laws, life, money, and prose

Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on action, apologies, appearance, charity, courage, diet, good, life, men, needs, wishes, and world

Men do what is called a good action, as some piece of courage or charity, much as they would pay a fine in expiation of daily non-appearance on parade. Their works are done as an apology or extenuation of their living in the world- as invalids pay a high board. Their virtues are penance's. I do not wish to expiate, but to live: my life is for itself, and not for spectacle. I much prefer that it should be of a lower strain, so it be genuine and equal, than that it should be glittering and unsteady. I wish it to be sound and sweet, and not to need diet and bleeding. I ask for primary evidence that you are a man, and refuse this appeal from a man to his actions.

Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)

A Quote by Pelham Grenville Wodehouse on apologies, good, life, and people

It's a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people don't want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

A Quote by Nancy Chodorow on apologies, awareness, duty, guilt, and hatred

Since our awareness of others is considered our duty, the price we pay when things go wrong is guilt and self-hatred. And things always go wrong. We respond with apologies; we continue to apologize long after the event is forgotten - and even if it had no casual relation to anything we did to begin with.
