A Quote by Saint Basil the Great on guilt, murder, and women

A woman who intentionally destroys a fetus is guilty of murder. And we do not even talk about the fine distinction as to its being completely formed or unformed.

A Quote by Patrick Henry on bravery, country, fear, friendship, giving, god, guilt, heaven, justice, nations, nature, power, time, and weakness

. . . I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of Hosts is all that is left us! . . . Sir, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of the means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. . . . Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave . . . . . . Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason toward my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

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.

A Quote by Prophet Muhammad on gold and guilt


Gold is to be paid by gold, silver by silver, wheat by wheat, barley by barley, dates by dates and salt by salt, like for like, payment being made on the spot. If anyone gives more or asks for more, he has dealt in usury. The receiver and the giver are equally guilty.
