remorse

One of the greatest spiritual acts of love is to walk away from recrimination and remorse and to accept, in its place, love and your own self-worth.

A Quote by William Butler Yeats on blessings, remorse, surrender, escape, joy, openness, heart, laughter, and singing

When such as I cast out remorse
So great a sweetness flows into the breast
We must laugh and we must sing,
We are blest by everything,
Everything we look upon is blessed.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on action, decisions, doubt, remorse, and responsibility

Whenever a warrior decides to do something, he must go all the way, but he must take responsibility for what he does. No matter what he does, he must know first why he is doing it, and then he must proceed with his actions without having doubts or remorse about them.

A Quote by Carlos Castaneda on evil, remorse, and ugliness

A warrior doesn't know remorse for anything he has done, because to isolate one's acts as being mean, or ugly, or evil is to place an unwarranted importance on the self.

A Quote by William George Jordan on emptiness, future, hope, individuality, life, past, perspective, procrastination, purpose, remorse, and songs

He who, from sheer lack of purpose, drifts through life, letting the golden years of his highest hopes glide empty back into the perspective of his past while he fills his ears with the lorelei song of procrastination is working overtime in accumulating remorse to darken his future. He is idly permitting the crown of his individuality to remain an irritating symbol of what might be rather than a joyous emblem of what is. This man is reigning, for reign he must, but he is not-ruling.

A Quote by unknown on admiration, conscience, morality, perfection, purity, and remorse

You still don't know what you're dealing with do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility. . . I admire its purity, a survivor, unclouded by conscience, remorse or delusions of morality
