Blame quotes by Alexa Riley
#1. What's with you always being in my space? Just because you're guarding me doesn't mean you need to be up my ass."

Blame quotes by Nicole Williams
#2. You've always got a choice. You have a choice now, and you certainly had a choice then. Don't blame them for the choices you made. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Blame quotes by Neel Burton
#3. Just as Prometheus delivered stolen fire to man, so Eve, and the serpent, delivered man into self-consciousness, setting him up, were it not for his short lifespan, as rival to God. At the same time, man's self-consciousness removed him from nature into a life of toil, doubt, fear, guilt, shame, blame, enmity, loneliness, and frailty - and the product of this separation, the fruit and flower of this exile, is, of course, culture. 'God,' said the writer Victor Hugo, 'made only water, but man made wine. #Quote by Neel Burton
Blame quotes by Mark Foley
#4. We're taught as young kids Acknowledge your mistakes, admit your lies, ... It's cathartic. That's what I think the speech did. He didn't just try to blame someone else. #Quote by Mark Foley
Blame quotes by Tami Egonu
#5. You can vent your anger and think that others are to blame when in truth the anger you carry belongs to you.
Learn to accept responsibility for every action.
Learn to let go of preconception.
Learn to let go of what you have learnt in your life.
Travel lightly and you will find the journey has far more enlightenment than you could ever have imagined. #Quote by Tami Egonu
Blame quotes by Quetzal
#6. I caught a red bird once,
I fell in love with her,
Took the red bird home with me,
I saw her eyes, at saw my peace,
I love the red bird much,
I cut her wings, I wanted the bird to stay,
I made a cage for her,
No wings, and trapped, the red bird cried,
I saw her eyes in pain; it broke my heart to see,
I was the one to blame, for the red bird's pain,
It grew back its wings, no longer in the cage,
She looked at me once more, spread its wings and left,
I loved that red bird still; I wish she was with me
But now I know for sure , her pain was caused by me. #Quote by Quetzal
Blame quotes by Iyanla Vanzant
#7. One of the greatest challenges in creating a joyful, peaceful and abundant life is taking responsibility for what you do and how you do it. As long as you can blame someone else, be angry with someone else, point the finger at someone else, you are not taking responsibility for your life. #Quote by Iyanla Vanzant
Blame quotes by Christina Aguilera
#8. Fighter"

[Spoken:]
After all that you put me through,
You think I'd despise you,
But in the end I wanna thank you,
'Cause you've made me that much stronger

Well I thought I knew you, thinkin' that you were true
Guess I, I couldn't trust called your bluff time is up
'Cause I've had enough
You were there by my side, always down for the ride
But your joy ride just came down in flames 'cause your greed sold me out in shame

After all of the stealing and cheating you probably think that I hold resentment for you
But uh uh, oh no, you're wrong
'Cause if it wasn't for all that you tried to do, I wouldn't know
Just how capable I am to pull through
So I wanna say thank you
'Cause it

[Chorus:]
Makes me that much stronger
Makes me work a little bit harder
It makes me that much wiser
So thanks for making me a fighter
Made me learn a little bit faster
Made my skin a little bit thicker
Makes me that much smarter
So thanks for making me a fighter

Never saw it coming, all of your backstabbing
Just so you could cash in on a good thing before I'd realize your game
I heard you're going round playing the victim now
But don't even begin feeling I'm the one to blame
'Cause you dug your own grave
After all of the fights and the lies 'cause you're wanting to haunt me
But that won't work anymore, no more,
It's #Quote by Christina Aguilera
Blame quotes by Ginger Scott
#9. We failed to learn from the stories that warned us that if we create environments that perpetuate poverty, that force the people in them to beg and steal, the we're equally to blame for many of their outcomes #Quote by Ginger Scott
Blame quotes by Paulo Coelho
#10. The target is the objective to be reached. It was chosen by the archer and though it is a long way off, we cannot blame it when we fail to hit it. In this lies the beauty of the way of the bow: you can never excuse yourself by saying that your opponent was stronger than you. You were the one who chose the target and you are responsible for it. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Blame quotes by Stephen Malkmus
#11. I'm not sure if you can blame everything on the American way of life, but the United States are big. So, if you have a lot of people there, the percentage of stupid people is bound to be higher. #Quote by Stephen Malkmus
Blame quotes by Brandon Bays
#12. From Freedom is:
"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"You can't fake it (forgivenss). It has to come from an open heart. It has to be real. Otherwise it is pointless. In order to fruly forgive, you must be willing to open your heart and face and release the pain there."
"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Blame quotes by William Shakespeare
#13. LADY ANNE:
What, do you tremble? Are you all afraid?
Alas, I blame you not, for you are mortal,
And mortal eyes cannot endure the devil. - #Quote by William Shakespeare
Blame quotes by Katherine Boo
#14. She had seen behind the obvious truth
that Mumbai was a hive of hope and ambition
to a profitable corollary. Mumbai was a place of festering grievance and ambient envy. Was there a soul in this enriching, unequal city who didn't blame his dissatisfaction on someone else? #Quote by Katherine Boo
Blame quotes by Michael Specter
#15. There are people who could watch a hurricane like Sandy blow out of the Atlantic every other day and blame it on anything but human activity. They are like those who, having been diagnosed with diabetes, eat donuts for breakfast. There's not much to do about them. #Quote by Michael Specter
Blame quotes by Lauren Wolk
#16. Blame comes from the Greek for "curse". That's the root of it. A curse against the sacred, which is what sisters are or should be to each other. #Quote by Lauren Wolk
Blame quotes by Julia Quinn
#17. I need to know how you can be so certain,' Daniel said, his voice dropping into a furious hush.
'Well...' Hugh brought his glass to his lips and took something deeper than a sip. 'If you must know, I told him that if anything happens to you, I would kill myself.'
If Daniel had been holding anything, anything at all, it would have crashed to the ground. It was a remarkable thing that *he* did not crash to the ground.
'My father knows me well enough to know that I do not say such a thing lightly,' Hugh said, lightly.
Daniel couldn't speak.
'So if you would...' Hugh took another drink, this time barely touching his lips to the liquid. 'I would appreciate if you would endeavor not to get yourself killed in an unhappy accident. I'm sure to blame it on my father, and honestly, I'd rather not see myself off unnecessarily.'
'You're mad,' Daniel whispered ... 'Why would you do such a thing?' Daniel could not imagine anyone else - not even Marcus, who was truly a brother to him - making the same sort of threat. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Blame quotes by Faye J Crosby
#18. Anyone who wishes to combine domestic responsibilities and paid employment with the least stress and most enjoyment might start by pondering this paradox: the first step to better functioning is to stop blaming herself for not functioning well enough. #Quote by Faye J Crosby
Blame quotes by Willie Nelson
#19. You'll never get ahead by blaming your problems on other people. #Quote by Willie Nelson
Blame quotes by Siyyid `Ali Muhammad Shirazi
#20. The Secret's message is to let go of all blame because it only destroys you, and to move forward with hope, love, compassion and kindness. #Quote by Siyyid `Ali Muhammad Shirazi
Blame quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#21. The cause of anger lies in our thinking - in thoughts of blame and judgment. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Blame quotes by Marilee G. Adams
#22. Blame keeps us stuck in the past. Responsibility paves the path for a better future. Blame #Quote by Marilee G. Adams
Blame quotes by Neil Gaiman
#23. You ask me, I welcome new gods. Bring them on. The god of the guns. The god of bombs. All the gods of ignorance and intolerance, of self-righteousness, idiocy and blame. #Quote by Neil Gaiman
Blame quotes by Lawrence Lessig
#24. Some blame the drug companies. I don't. They are corporations. Their managers are ordered by law to make money for the corporation. They push a certain patent policy not because of ideals,but because it is the policy that makes them the most money. And it only makes them the most money because of a certain corruption within our political system-a corruption the drug companies are certainly not responsible for. The corruption is our own politicians' failure of integrity. #Quote by Lawrence Lessig
Blame quotes by John Keats
#25. Praise or blame has but a momentary effect on the man whose love of beauty in the abstract makes him a severe critic on his own works. #Quote by John Keats
Blame quotes by Geraldine Jewsbury
#26. What would become of the world without the Devil? Under all the different systems of religion that have guided or misguided the world for the last six thousand years, the Devil has been the grand scapegoat. He has had to bear the blame of every thing that has gone wrong. All the evil that gets committed is laid to his door, and he has, besides, the credit of hindering all the good that has never got done at all. If mankind were not thus one and all victims to the Devil, what an irredeemable set of scoundrels they would be obliged to confess themselves! #Quote by Geraldine Jewsbury
Blame quotes by Lunga Noélia Izata
#27. We went to my friend's place to continue hanging out and I fell asleep on her couch. I was dreaming and I felt something poking me, as a writer I need to be specific and use description to take my readers to the place but I don't want to take you guys there. I continued to feel poked on a part of my body that I saved for seventeen years. The poke later became touching, and I tried to stop it but I couldn't. I thought it was sleep paralysis but this time the demon was human. I felt so powerless, like I was part of the marvel universe and someone had taken my power. I never told anyone about it, because they would blame it on drinking problems. I admit that I have a drinking problem, but I am pretty sure he has a 'lack of humanity problem'. At least, alcohol does not change character. #Quote by Lunga Noélia Izata
Blame quotes by Jack Canfield
#28. blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Blame quotes by Rick Riordan
#29. Nico wasn't sure whether to kick himself or Will Solace. If he hadn't been so distracted bickering with the son of Apollo, he would never have allowed the enemy to get so close. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Blame quotes by David Mitchell
#30. Mis'ry'n'barrassment are hungersome for blame #Quote by David Mitchell
Blame quotes by Anna Kournikova
#31. You don't think people would go on about my looks if I was No. 500 in the world instead of No.12, do you? Anyway, as I keep telling everyone, you can't blame me for looking like this on purpose. #Quote by Anna Kournikova
Blame quotes by K.J. Parker
#32. He was astonished at how calm he found he was. Fear of death had always energised him, making him move far more quickly than his body should have been capable of, accelerating his reactions and his thought process to a quite incredible level. This time, though, he only thought, Oh, and realised that he didn't really care all that much. He could feel his responsibilities, the love of others towards him, the unfulfilled possibilities; they were like a child's hand trying to pull him up, doing its best but simply not strong enough for the job. Above all, there was no blame. I tried to climb a wall, but I couldn't, and there it is. #Quote by K.J. Parker
Blame quotes by Caroline Knapp
#33. If only we lived in a culture in which internal measures of satisfaction and success - a capacity for joy and caring, an ability to laugh, a sense of connection to others, a belief in social justice - were as highly valued as external measures. If only we lived in a culture that made ambition compatible with motherhood and family life, that presented models of women who were integrated and whole: strong, sexual, ambitious, cued into their own varied appetites and demands, and equipped with the freedom and resources to explore all of them. If only women felt less isolated in their frustration and fatigue, less torn between competing hungers, less compelled to keep nine balls in the air at once, and less prone to blame themselves when those balls come crashing to the floor. If only we exercised our own power, which is considerable but woefully underused; if only we defined desire on our own terms. And - painfully, truly - if only we didn't care so much about how we looked, how much we weighed, what we wore. #Quote by Caroline Knapp
Blame quotes by David DeSteno
#34. humans appear to have a built-in immune system for threats to their own well-being. If we're about to blame ourselves for bad behavior, our minds intervene with a whitewash. #Quote by David DeSteno
Blame quotes by Saleem Haddad
#35. In America the gay world touched my life at the margins, though references and images and occasional conversations with men and women who celebrated their homosexuality with pride. As far as I could see there was nothing to be proud about. There was only pain, humiliation and shame. If I were to join this group, I would have to act proud and hide my feelings of rejection and loneliness. If I were to show these men and women that I was terrified for my future, I would be regarded as misguided or a victim of Islam or Arabness. But if there was one thing I wsa certain of it was that there was nothing misguided about my feelings, and I did not feel that Islam or my Arabness was to blame. If I were to join this group, I would simply go from the repressiveness of secrecy to the repressiveness of pride. I didn't despise my shame. I had no reason to do so. My shame illuminated my intense attachment to the world, my desire to be connected with others. #Quote by Saleem Haddad
Blame quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#36. But he didn't need to seek visual confirmation of what he'd just heard to know she had. And the truth was, he couldn't blame her. He'd not have let her die, either. He'd have moved mountains. He'd have battled God or Devil for his wife's life.
She'd betrayed him.
He smiled faintly. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Blame quotes by Kangana Ranaut
#37. It's very hard for me to find any sort of shame or blame in my life. I'm not made that way. #Quote by Kangana Ranaut
Blame quotes by Reese Witherspoon
#38. I always say that it's very important not to blame one person. You have to own whatever part of it you're responsible for. It takes a lot of soul-searching. It's important to go through that, because hopefully you won't repeat yourself. #Quote by Reese Witherspoon
Blame quotes by Barbara Walters
#39. When your child is in trouble, the first thing you do is blame yourself. #Quote by Barbara Walters
Blame quotes by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
#40. Self-love makes us deceive ourselves in almost all matters, to censure others, and to blame them for the same faults that we do not correct in ourselves; we do this either because we are unaware of the evil that exists within us, or because we always see our own evil disguised as a good. #Quote by Madeleine De Souvre, Marquise De ...
Blame quotes by Jerry West
#41. The marketing of players has created untold wealth for many sports stars. You can't blame them or the company that covets the relationship with them, but that doesn't mean the player is good. #Quote by Jerry West
Blame quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#42. Always let your subordinates know that the honor will be all theirs if they succeed and the blame will be yours if they fail. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Blame quotes by Sharon Cooper
#43. What I do believe happens in a lot of these cases is that we somehow want to place blame on the victim for their behavior or that they brought it upon themself. As law enforcement official, you are held to a higher standard. You are expected to execute your job in that regard. #Quote by Sharon Cooper
Blame quotes by Sonakshi Sinha
#44. My opinion is that you cannot really blame cinema for the result of what is somebody's mindset. I think it's just entertainment. For me, I've always believed in doing things that I can sit and watch with my family. So far I think I've stuck to that, and I will also in the future. #Quote by Sonakshi Sinha
Blame quotes by Mark Fisher
#45. [I]t is a mistake to rush to impose the individual ethical responsibility that the corporate structure deflects. This is the temptation of the ethical which, as Zizek has argued, the capitalist system is using in order to protect itself in the wake of the credit crisis - the blame will be put on supposedly pathological individuals, those' abusing the system', rather than on the system itself. But the evasion is actually a two step procedure - since structure will often be invoked (either implicitly or openly) precisely at the point when there is the possibility of individuals who belong to the corporate structure being punished. At this point, suddenly, the causes of abuse or atrocity are so systemic, so diffuse, that no individual can be held responsible… But this impasse - it is only individuals that can be held ethically responsible for actions, and yet the cause of these abuses and errors is corporate, systemic - is not only a dissimulation: it precisely indicates what is lacking in capitalism. What agencies are capable of regulating and controlling impersonal structures? How is it possible to chastise a corporate structure? Yes, corporations can legally be treated as individuals - but the problem is that corporations, whilst certainly entities, are not like individual humans, and any analogy between punishing corporations and punishing individuals will therefore necessarily be poor. And it is not as if corporations are the deep-level agents behind everything; they are th #Quote by Mark Fisher
Blame quotes by Mary C. Lamia
#46. Volatile expressions of anger and hostility combined with a tendency to blame others often result from feeling shame ... If you are shame-prone, any accusation directed at you, regardless of how mildly it may be delivered, has the potential to make you feel that you have failed or that you are inadequate. Rather than simply admit wrongdoing, you get angry and accusatory in order to hold yourself blameless. Using anger or hostility for self-protection hides your vulnerability and needs. Unfortunately, since most people are repelled by an angry response, this method may be effective.
Your anger may drive away the very people who should know your real feelings, and it may deprive you of the opportunity to allow others to be aware of your needs. Behaving in an offensive or frightening way toward others can cause them to retreat out of fear. But, actually, the fear is your own, which you have turned against someone else in the form of anger. #Quote by Mary C. Lamia
Blame quotes by Rick Riordan
#47. In a way, it's nice to know there are Greek gods out there, because you have somebody to
blame when things go wrong. For instance, when you're walking away from a bus that's just been
attacked by monster hags and blown up by lightning, and it's raining on top of everything else. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Blame quotes by Rapsody
#48. Never blame a man for misfortune, do it yourself #Quote by Rapsody
Blame quotes by Augusten Burroughs
#49. Any damage that's been done, you have to fix yourself because it needs fixing and there is nobody else to do the work. Blame may well be justified, but it's not going to move you forward in your life. #Quote by Augusten Burroughs
Blame quotes by Donna Lynn Hope
#50. Some people live their lives being perpetual victims and finger pointers. To anyone who points a finger at someone else and lays all the blame at their feet instead of taking responsibility for their own behavior, I would say, I see that finger and you know where you can put it? #Quote by Donna Lynn Hope
Blame quotes by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
#51. Marriage, in short, is a bargain, like buying a house or entering a profession. One chooses it knowing that, by that very decision, one is abnegating other possibilities. In choosing companionship over passion, women like Beatrice Webb and Virginia Woolf made a bargain; their marriages worked because they did not regret their bargains, or blame their husbands for not being something else--dashing lovers, for example. But in writing biographies, or one's own life, it is both customary and misleading to present such marriages, to oneself or to one's reader, as sad compromises, the best of a bad bargain, or scarcely to speak of them at all. Virginia Woolf mentioned that she, who is reticent about nothing, had never spoken of her life with Leonard. but we know that she said of him that when he entered a room, she had no idea what he was going to say, a remarkable definition of a good marriage. Such marriages are not bad bargains, but the best of a good bargain, and we must learn the language to understand and describe them, particularly in writing the lives of accomplished women. #Quote by Carolyn G. Heilbrun
Blame quotes by Alyson Noel
#52. It is the plight of man. And while the blame lies partly on the river " Lotus gestures towards the dark waters before us "most of the blame lies on man's inclination to tune into the noise that blares all around him instead of the beautiful silence that lies deep within. #Quote by Alyson Noel
Blame quotes by Becca Fitzpatrick
#53. Don't blame me. Tell your mom to move closer. Tell her there's this new club called civilization and you guys should join. #Quote by Becca Fitzpatrick
Blame quotes by Michael Heseltine
#54. In the end leaders are leaders. They get the credit and they get the blame. #Quote by Michael Heseltine
Blame quotes by Julia Quinn
#55. Any man, you'll soon learn, has an insurmountable need to blame someone else when he is made to look a fool. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Blame quotes by Bertrand Russell
#56. Democracy is the process by which people choose the man who'll get the blame. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Blame quotes by Ryan Reynolds
#57. But if you do, then it's a high class problem to have. And if you do, you're the architect of that problem. There's no one else to blame but yourself. You've kept doing the same kinds of movies and that's what they want to see. #Quote by Ryan Reynolds
Blame quotes by Andy Stanley
#58. Praying for revival equates to blaming God for the condition of your local church. #Quote by Andy Stanley
Blame quotes by Oscar Eccentric
#59. Who can blame the poor lad for not advertising his rather unique name? Especially when his mother's maiden name is Jewel Diamond Sunrise and his grandmother's is Dawn Moonbeam Sunrise. Dawn Sunrise, such a pretty name. And it is true that your mother was almost named Red Sky Sunrise, but your grandfather said he would divorce her mother if she didn't change it. He was in the navy and thought that it was a bad omen. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, you know. And Max's grandmother didn't tell anyone that she considered calling her daughter Sunset Sunrise. Catchy isn't it? #Quote by Oscar Eccentric
Blame quotes by Michelle Blanchard
#60. Don't be mad at a hoe for doing what she does best, besides it's not her that owes you that loyalty. #Quote by Michelle Blanchard
Blame quotes by Maureen Corrigan
#61. It's a gift of tranquility when your adult desires mesh with your childhood background. I don't quite know why mine didn't, although I think books, again, are partly to blame. #Quote by Maureen Corrigan
Blame quotes by Joan Aiken
#62. They came to the high stone shaft with the face of Sul; they descended to the terrace below. And here Caradog waited, leaning on his silver-tipped rod and eying the horizon, until the delicate slip of the new moon moved out from behind the shoulder of Mount Damyake, with the mysterious, shadowy ghost of the old moon cradle inside it, like an egg inside its egg cup.

"Now it is time," he said.

"Blame it!" expostulated Dido. "It ain't right for me to die! Have you thought of that, mister? You're and old gager; you've lived nigh on fourscore years, I shouldn't wonder. You did a whole lot of things and learned a lot o' stuff --- though mussy knows, you ain't put it to very good use. But I haven't hardly done nothing! And I ain't learned much, neither, except the use of the globes that Mr. Holy taught me, and how to curtsy and cut up whales."

At the thought of Mr. Holystone her voice, to her shame, began to wobble dangerously; she stopped speaking and drew a deep breath.

"Cease repining, child, and go down those steps," said Caradog. "Do not quarrel with your destiny. If Sul wishes you to die, then it is your time."

Dido remembered the story that Bran had told about the man who picked up the necklace. Well, if it is my destiny, she thought, best not to make a pother about it. #Quote by Joan Aiken
Blame quotes by Richard Siken
#63. You wanted happiness, I can't blame you for that, and maybe a mouth sounds idiotic when it blathers on about joy but tell me you love this, tell me you're not miserable. #Quote by Richard Siken
Blame quotes by Kevin Hearne
#64. Drug addicts perplex me. They're a relatively recent development, historically speaking. Everyone has their theories - monotheists like to blame it on godlessness - but I think it was a plague that developed in the sooty petticoats of the Industrial Revolution and its concomitant division of labor. Once people specialized their labors and separated themselves from food production and the daily needs of basic survival, there was a hollow place in their lives that they did not know how to fill. #Quote by Kevin Hearne
Blame quotes by Zach Braff
#65. I don't want to blame it all on 9/11, but it certainly didn't help matters. #Quote by Zach Braff
Blame quotes by Louise Hay
#66. Today I release the need to blame anyone, including myself. #Quote by Louise Hay
Blame quotes by Vijay Mallya
#67. Everybody keeps saying that India's a poor country. Yes, we have poverty. But I blame the government of India, the political establishment, for their failure to educate and therefore their failure to control the poverty. #Quote by Vijay Mallya
Blame quotes by Bernie Siegel
#68. It can be tempting to blame others for our loss of direction. We get lots of information about life but little education in life from parents, teachers, and other authority figures who should know better from their experience. Information is about facts. Education is about wisdom and the knowledge of how to love and survive. #Quote by Bernie Siegel
Blame quotes by Kishore Bansal
#69. Under grudges we blame others and feel suffocated #Quote by Kishore Bansal
Blame quotes by Quinn Loftis
#70. Romance is a lie that gives people an excuse to act like fools and later blame it on the one whom they had bestowed their supposed love upon. #Quote by Quinn Loftis
Blame quotes by Andrzej Sapkowski
#71. Mistakes,' he said with effort, 'are also important to me. I don't cross them out of my life, or memory. And I never blame others for them. #Quote by Andrzej Sapkowski
Blame quotes by Charles Spurgeon
#72. This is the doctrine that we preach; if a man be saved, all the honor is to be given to Christ; but if a man be lost, all the blame is to be laid upon himself. You will find all true theology summed up in these two short sentences, salvation is all of the grace of God, damnation is all of the will of man. #Quote by Charles Spurgeon
Blame quotes by Johnny Cash
#73. There's a man going 'round taking names / And he decides who to free and who to blame / Everybody won't be treated all the same / There'll be a golden ladder reaching down / When the Man comes around. #Quote by Johnny Cash
Blame quotes by Jane Harper
#74. The the street was quiet again. Country quiet.

That's partly what took city natives like the Whitlams by surprise, Falk thought: the quiet. He could understand them seeking out the idyllic country lifestyle, a lot of people did. The idea had an enticing, wholesome glow when it was weighed out from the back of a traffic jam, or while crammed into a gardenless apartment. They all had the same visions of breathing fresh clean air and knowing their neighbors. The kids would eat home-grown veggies and learn the value of an honest day's work.

On arrival, as the empty moving truck disappeared form sight, they looked around and were always taken aback by the crushing vastness of the open land. The space was the thing that hit them first. There was so much of it. There was enough to drown in. To look out and see not another soul between you and the horizon could be a strange and disturbing sight.

Soon, they discovered that the veggies didn't grow as willingly as they had in the city window box. That every single green shoot had to be coaxed and prized from the reluctant soil, and the neighbors were too busy doing the same on an industrial scale to muster much cheer in their greetings. There was no daily bumper-to-bumper commute, but there was also nowhere much to drive to.

Falk didn't blame the Whitlams, he'd seen it many times before when he was a kid. The arrivals looked around at the barrenness and the scale and the sheer bloody hardne #Quote by Jane Harper
Blame quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#75. Warn you that my friend is a compound personality, and therefore it is difficult to blame him as an individual. #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Blame quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#76. The truest, most beautiful life never promises to be an easy one. We need to let go of the lie that it's supposed to be.
Each of those women has begun to live from her imagination. Here's how: Each honored her own discontent. She did not dismiss it, bury it, deflect it, deny it, blame it on someone else, or tell herself to shut up and be grateful. She heard her Knowing whisper "Not this," and she admitted to herself that she heard it. She sat with it for a while. Then she dared to utter her inner whisper out loud. She shared her discontent with another human being.
Then, when she was ready to move from Not this to This instead, she dared to call upon her imagination to tell her the story she was born to tell with her life. She dreamed up what it would look like to have her specific version of truth and beauty come to life. She looked for the blueprint she'd been born with, the one she'd forgotten existed. She unearthed her unseen order: her original plan. #Quote by Glennon Doyle Melton
Blame quotes by Anne McCaffrey
#77. When bad fortune occurs, the unresourceful, unimaginative man looks about him to attach the blame to someone else; the resolute accepts misfortune and endeavors to survive, mature, and improve because of it. #Quote by Anne McCaffrey
Blame quotes by David Brooks
#78. It's easy to see why politicians would be drawn to the populist pose. First, it makes everything so simple. The economic crisis was caused by a complex web of factors, including global imbalances caused by the rise of China. But with the populist narrative, you can just blame Goldman Sachs. #Quote by David Brooks
Blame quotes by Frank Thomas
#79. I do feel I was overshadowed by some of those guys (who took steroids) ... I had a diminished-skills clause written in after I hit 29 home runs and drove in 92 RBIs, and I think those (steroid-aided home run hitters) are partly to blame. #Quote by Frank Thomas
Blame quotes by Deanna Raybourn
#80. I matched my heated tone with one of pure ice. "I believe I did attempt to relate to you the facts of my calls and you interrupted me with a rather magnificent display of temper much as you are doing now. If you do not have all the facts of the case perhaps you have no one but yourself to blame." Brisbane opened his mouth and shut it with a snap. His mouth remained closed but I could hear him muttering under his breath. "What are you saying?" "I am counting. To one hundred. In Cantonese. #Quote by Deanna Raybourn
Blame quotes by Sara McMann
#81. I'm not going to blame a referee for something I feel like I should be able to control. I should get up quicker. If you want to win fights, you just have to do it, regardless of what's going on. #Quote by Sara McMann
Blame quotes by Judith Spencer
#82. For its survival, the satanic cult demanded secrecy and obedience while it made brutality, even killing, appropriate. Denial and disavowal were inevitable responses to required behaviors so bizarre as to seem unreal, even to those who enacted them. What they could not deny or disavow, they could distort. They could blame the victims, who deserved to die for fighting or crying or for failing to fight or cry. They found encouragement for such a stance in a general culture accustomed to blaming victims for their misfortunes, and in specific contact with child victims eager to blame themselves. By believing that victims had a choice when there was none, they could see victims as culpable. They could even see the deaths as right and purposeful in the nobility of sacrifice. #Quote by Judith Spencer
Blame quotes by Chuck D
#83. Rap comes from the humble beginnings of rebelling against the status quo. Now, rappers have become the status quo themselves. You can't rebel against the Queen and then become the Queen yourself. I attribute much of the blame to testosterone-male dominance and patriarchy. #Quote by Chuck D
Blame quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Blame quotes by Charles Bukowski
#86. fuck


she pulled her dress off
over her head
and I saw the panties
indented somewhat into the
crotch.

it's only human.
now we've got to do it.
I've got to do it
after all that bluff.
it's like a party--
two trapped
idiots.

under the sheets
after I have snapped
off the light
her panties are still
on. she expects an
opening performance.
I can't blame her. but
wonder why she's here with
me? where are the other
guys? how can you be
lucky? having someone the
others have abandoned?

we didn't have to do it
yet we had to do it.
it was something like
establishing new credibility
with the income tax
man. I get the panties
off. I decide not to tongue her. even then
I'm thinking about
after it's over.

we'll sleep together
tonight
trying to fit ourselves
inside the wallpaper.

I try, fail,
notice the hair on her
head
mostly notice the hair
on her
head
and a glimpse of
nostrils
piglike

I try it again. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Blame quotes by Nikki Haley
#87. I think it's very important to get ego out of the room. I think it's important to realize it takes two hands to clap - stop the pointing, stop the blame game. I think we've seen enough of that, I think the country is tired of it. I think they want to see Washington function, they want to see action. #Quote by Nikki Haley
Blame quotes by Oliver Sykes

Blame quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#89. I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.
That is why it is so late and why I have been guilty of such omissions.
They come with their laws and their codes to bind me fast; but I
evade them ever, for I am only waiting for love to give myself up at
last into his hands.
People blame me and call me heedless; I doubt not they are right
in their blame.
The market day is over and work is all done for the busy. Those
who came to call me in vain have gone back in anger. I am only
waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Blame quotes by David Hume
#90. We make allowance for a certain degree of selfishness in men; because we know it to be inseparable from human nature, and inherent in our frame and constitution. By this reflexion we correct those sentiments of blame, which so naturally arise upon any opposition. #Quote by David Hume
Blame quotes by Wendy Mass
#91. I blame my dad for my sweet tooth. His motto was 'Life is short; eat dessert first.' How can I argue with that? #Quote by Wendy Mass
Blame quotes by Robert S. Strauss
#92. What's going to happen is that county council and the county executive will be able to blame the judge. I think that's what's going to happen
they want to blame the judge for reassessment. That's not leadership, that's hiding. #Quote by Robert S. Strauss
Blame quotes by Isabel Wilkerson
#93. Our Negro problem, therefore, is not of the Negro's making. No group in our population is less responsible for its existence. But every group is responsible for its continuance ... Both races need to understand that their rights and duties are mutual and equal and their interests in the common good are idential ... There is no help or healing in apparaising past responsibilities or in present apportioning of praise or blame. The past is of value only as it aids in understanding the present; and an understanding of the facts of the problem
a magnanimous understanding by both races
is the first step toward its solution. #Quote by Isabel Wilkerson
Blame quotes by Charles M. Schulz
#94. There's our excuse ... we'll blame everything on the round-headed kid! #Quote by Charles M. Schulz
Blame quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#95. The effectiveness of an author turns chiefly upon his getting the reputation that he should be read. But by practicing various arts, by the operation of chance, and by certain natural affinities, this reputation is quickly won by a hundred worthless people: while a worthy writer may come by it very slowly and tardily. The former possess friends to help them; for the rabble is always a numerous body which holds well together. The latter has nothing but enemies; because intellectual superiority is everywhere and under all circumstances the most hateful thing in the world, and especially to bunglers in the same line of work, who want to pass for something themselves. This being so, it is a prime condition for doing any great work
any work which is to outlive its own age, that a man pay no heed to his contemporaries, their views and opinons, and the praise or blame which they bestow. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Blame quotes by William Penn
#96. Men not living to what they know, cannot blame God, that they know no more. #Quote by William Penn
Blame quotes by Mandi Lynn
#97. Keep my soul safe. Phantom Lagoon is my home; my safe harbor. I no longer belong to a family; I am a loner. I feel no pain here, because it does not exist; nor will I let it exist. My soul is concealed in this stone; it is my life. I must let go, forget, and never look back. The blame shall be none but my own, for I was born of only half, to be reunited later in life. I am an Essence. #Quote by Mandi Lynn
Blame quotes by Matt Forbeck
#98. We put our trust in others, and sometimes they disappoint us in the worst possible ways. Does that mean we should lash out and look for people onto whom we can shuffle the blame? #Quote by Matt Forbeck
Blame quotes by Newsboys
#99. Now is the time
And here is the place,
'Cause we lose these hours and casting blame
When we should be saying grace.
We can find a better way.
We can stand on common ground.
We can work this out between us before the sun goes down.
We come together. #Quote by Newsboys
Blame quotes by Matthew Kahn
#100. One of the most commonly overlooked spiritual practices is daring to be completely honest with everyone you encounter. Some may say others cannot handle their honesty, but true honesty is not a strategy or a weapon of any kind. It is the willingness to be open and absolutely transparent in sharing how any moment feels in your heart. It has nothing to do with confrontation, accusation, or any form of blame. True honesty is the willingness to stand completely exposed, allowing the world to do what it may, and say what it will, only so you may know who you are - beyond all ideas. #Quote by Matthew Kahn
Blame quotes by Noel Ignatiev
#101. If you are a white male, you don't deserve to live. You are a cancer, you're a disease, white males have never contributed anything positive to the world! They only murder, exploit and oppress non-whites! At least a white woman can have sex with a black man and make a brown baby but what can a white male do? He's good for nothing. Slavery, genocides against aboriginal peoples and massive land confiscation, the inquisition, the holocaust, white males are all to blame! You maintain your white male privilege only by oppressing, discriminating against and enslaving others! #Quote by Noel Ignatiev
Blame quotes by Georgette Heyer
#102. This embittered thought brought to her mind the several occasions upon which she might, had she been the kind of female his lordship no doubt admired, have kindled his ardour by a display of sensibility, or even of heroism ... To have thrown herself between the foils, when she had surprised the Earl fencing with Martin, would certainly have been spectacular, but that it would have evoked anything but exasperation in the male breast she was quite unable to believe. She thought she need not blame herself for having refrained upon this occasion; but when she recalled her behaviour in the avenue, when the Earl had been thrown from his horse, she knew that nothing could excuse her. Here had been an opportunity for spasms, swoonings, and a display of sensibility, utterly neglected! How could his lordship have been expected to guess that her heart had been beating so hard and so fast that had felt quite sick, when all she had done was to talk to him in a voice drained of all expression? Not even when his lifeless body had been carried into the Castle had she conducted herself like a heroine of romance! Had she fainted at the sight of his blood-soaked raiment? Had she screamed? No! All she had done had been to direct Ulverston to do one thing, Turvey another, Chard to ride for the doctor, while she herself had done what lay within her power to staunch the bleeding. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Blame quotes by Michael Perry
#103. Part of the blame lies with intellectuals who are unable or unwilling to convey their ideas in terms that will play down to the cafe. But anyone who sits in that cafe and dismisses complexity by reveling in their own simplicity is no less pretentious. #Quote by Michael Perry
Blame quotes by Laura Marling

Blame quotes by Gerald Gould
#105. Beyond the East the sunrise, beyond the West the sea,
And East and West the wanderlust that will not let me be;
It works in me like madness, dear, to bid me say good-by!
For the seas call and the stars call, and oh, the call of the sky!

I know not where the white road runs, nor what the blue hills are,
But man can have the sun for friend, and for his guide a star;
And there's no end of voyaging when once the voice is heard,
For the river calls and the road calls, and oh, the call of a bird!

Yonder the long horizon lies, and there by night and day
The old ships draw to home again, the young ships sail away;
And come I may, but go I must, and if men ask you why,
You may put the blame on the stars and the sun and the white road and the sky! #Quote by Gerald Gould

Blame quotes by Laura Thalassa
#107. Mighty Nyx came,

Mighty Nyx sought,

All that he could,

Of his dark lot.

In the deep night,

His kingdom rose,

Beware, great king,

Of that which grows.

Easy to conquer,

Easy to crown,

But even the strongest,

Can be cut down.

Raised in the shadows,

Reared in the night,

Your child will come,

And ascend by might.

And you, the slain,

Shall wait and see,

What other things,

A soul can be.

A body to curse,

A body to blame,

A body the earth,

Will not yet claim.

Beware the mortal,

Beneath your sky,

Crush the human,

Who'll see you die.

Twice you'll rise,

Twice you'll fall,

Lest you can,

Change it all.

Or perish by day,

Perish by dawn,

The world believes,

You're already gone.

So darken your heart,

My shadow king,

And let us see,

What war will bring.

Blame quotes by Rush Limbaugh
#108. It was all for the eventual payoff and thank-you by giving Hillary Clinton the Democrat Party presidential nomination. And it went awry in 2008 because somebody they liked better came along. Somebody they really liked better. I mean, somebody they loved better. They threw her overboard like an unwanted sack of potatoes down on the farm for Barack Hussein Obama. And she seethed, felt betrayed. Don't blame her a bit. They betrayed her big time. #Quote by Rush Limbaugh
Blame quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

Blame quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#110. There is another part of us that receives the judgments, and this part is called the Victim. The Victim carries the blame, the guilt, and the shame. It is the part of us that says, "Poor me, I'm not good enough, I'm not intelligent enough, I'm not attractive enough, I'm not worthy of love, poor me." The big Judge agrees and says, "Yes, you are not good enough." And this is all based on a belief system that we never chose to believe. #Quote by Miguel Ruiz

Blame quotes by Russell Brand
#115. If you feel how I felt, I have been taught a few techniques that might help you. Here's one for a kick-off: You have to forgive everyone for everything. You can't cling on to any blame that you may be using to make sense of the story of your life. Even me with my story of one nan that I love and another that I don't - that story is being used to maintain a certain perspective of mine, a perspective that justifies the way I am, and by justifying the way I am I ensure that I stay the same. I'm no longer interested in staying the same; I'm interested in Revolution, that means I have to go back and change the story of my childhood. #Quote by Russell Brand
Blame quotes by Christopher Reeve

Blame quotes by Arthur Miller
#118. Nobody dast blame this man. You don't understand: Willy was a salesman. And for a salesman, there's no rock bottom to the life. He don't put a bolt to a nut, he don't tell you the law or give you medicine. He's a man way out there in the blue riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back - that's an earthquake. And then you get yourself a couple spots on your hat and your finished. Nobody dast blame this man. A salesman is got to dream boy, it comes with the territory. #Quote by Arthur Miller
Blame quotes by Christopher Pike
#119. If you honestly feel you have done something so terrible that you cannot be forgiven, then I am willing to share your sins with you. When we die, if we should have to stand before God and be judged, then I will tell him I am as much to blame as you and that half your punishment should be portioned out to me. #Quote by Christopher Pike
Blame quotes by Paula Hawkins
#120. I can't blame this all for my drinking -- I can't blame my parents or my childhood, and abusive uncle or some terrible tragedy. It's my fault. I was a drinker anyway -- I've always liked to drink. But I did become sadder, and sadness gets boring after a while, for the sad person and for everyone around them. And then I went from being a drinker to being a drunk, and there's nothing more boring than that. #Quote by Paula Hawkins

Blame quotes by Karl Wiggins
#123. We look at the way some kids behave and instantly blame the parents, and more often than not we're correct. The school bully is often a sign of poor parenting. That's the immediate cause, but if we search for the root cause we have to dig much deeper than that. What on earth in that kid's head makes it seem okay to bully people? Why are the parents doing such a poor job of bringing up their children? Probably because they didn't have very effective role models themselves when they were growing up. It could go back generations #Quote by Karl Wiggins

Blame quotes by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
#131. The messengers of Jesus will be hated to the end of time. They will be blamed for all the division which rend cities and homes. Jesus and his disciples will be condemned on all sides for undermining family life, and for leading the nation astray; they will be called crazy fanatics and disturbers of the peace. The disciples will be sorely tempted to desert their Lord. But the end is also near, and they must hold on and persevere until it comes. Only he will be blessed who remains loyal to Jesus and his word until the end. #Quote by Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Blame quotes by Ibn Hazm
#132. If there is someone in need whom you wish to help, whether the initiative came from him or from you, do no more than he expects of you, not what you might personally wish to do. If you overstep the mark, you will not deserve thanks, but blame from him and others and you will attract hostility, not friendship. #Quote by Ibn Hazm
Blame quotes by Dossie Easton
#133. Each person owns their own feelings. No one "makes" you feel jealous or insecure - the person who makes you feel that way is you. No matter what the other person is doing, what you feel in response is determined inside you. Even when somebody deliberately tries to hurt you, you make a choice about how you feel. You might feel angry or hurt or frightened or guilty. The choice, not usually conscious, happens inside you. Reaching this understanding is not as easy as it sounds. When you feel rotten, it can be hard to accept the responsibility for how you feel: wouldn't this be easier if it were someone else's fault? The problem is that when you blame someone else for how you feel, you disempower yourself. If this is someone else's fault, only that person can fix it, right? So poor you can't do anything but sit there and moan. #Quote by Dossie Easton
Blame quotes by Glen Duncan
#134. We go to the past to lay the blame - since the past can't argue. We go to our past selves to account for our present miseries. #Quote by Glen Duncan

Blame quotes by Noor Shirazie

Blame quotes by David Foster Wallace
#139. The depressed person's therapist was always extremely careful to avoid appearing to judge or blame the depressed person for clinging to her defenses, or to suggest that the depressed person had in any way consciously chosen or chosen to cling to a chronic depression whose agony made her (i.e., the depressed person's) every waking hour feel like more than any person could possibly endure. This renunciation of judgment or imposed value was held by the therapeutic school in which the therapist's philosophy of healing had evolved over almost fifteen years of clinical experience to be integral to the combination of unconditional support and complete honesty about feelings which composed the nurturing professionalism required for a productive therapeutic journey toward authenticity and intrapersonal wholeness. Defenses against intimacy, the depressed person's therapist's experiential theory held, were nearly always arrested or vestigial survival-mechanisms; i.e., they had, at one time, been environmentally appropriate and necessary and had very probably served to shield a defenseless childhood psyche against potentially unbearable trauma, but in nearly all cases they (i.e., the defense-mechanisms) had become inappropriately imprinted and arrested and were now, in adulthood, no longer environmentally appropriate and in fact now, paradoxically, actually caused a great deal more trauma and pain than they prevented. Nevertheless, the therapist had made it clear from the outset that she #Quote by David Foster Wallace

#140. Life brings to you exactly what you need. There is perfect justice in hell. There is nothing to blame. We can even say that our suffering is a gift.

Blame quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#141. In the game of football, you least complain, shout, talk or blame your opponents or the referee continuously throughout the game just because of your opponents opposition, strength or antics to ensure that you lose focus and lose the game; winning the game is your true aim. Such is life! You must do all you ought to do to score your goals notwithstanding the oppositions and how life will play the game of life with you! Be a goal getter! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Blame quotes by Lindy West
#143. I hate being fat. I hate the way people look at me, or don't. I hate being a joke; I hate the disorienting limbo between too visible and invisible; I hate the way that complete strangers waste my life out of supposed concern for my death. I hate knowing that if I did die of a condition that correlates with weight, a certain subset of people would feel their prejudices validated, and some would outright celebrate. I also love being fat. The breadth of my shoulders makes me feel safe. I am unassailable. I intimidate. I am a polar icebreaker. I walk and climb and lift things, I can open your jar, I can absorb blows - literal and metaphorical - meant for other women, smaller woman, breakable women women who need me. My bones feel like iron - heavy, but strong. I used to say that being fat in our culture was like drowning (in hate, in blame, in your own tissue), but lately I think it's more like burning. After three decades in the fire, my iron bones are steel. #Quote by Lindy West
Blame quotes by Jodi Picoult
#144. Most people who offer their help do it to make themselves feel better, not us. To be honest, I don't blame them. It's superstition: If you give assistance to the family in need ... if you throw salt over your shoulder ... if you don't step on the cracks, then maybe you'll be immune. Maybe you'll be able to convince yourself that this could never happen to you. #Quote by Jodi Picoult

Blame quotes by Percy Bysshe Shelley
#146. Homer's Hymn to Castor and Pollux

Published by Mrs. Shelley, "Poetical Works", 1839, 2nd edition; dated 1818.

Ye wild-eyed Muses, sing the Twins of Jove,
Whom the fair-ankled Leda, mixed in love
With mighty Saturn's Heaven-obscuring Child,
On Taygetus, that lofty mountain wild,
Brought forth in joy: mild Pollux, void of blame,
And steed-subduing Castor, heirs of fame.
These are the Powers who earth-born mortals save
And ships, whose flight is swift along the wave.
When wintry tempests o'er the savage sea
Are raging, and the sailors tremblingly
Call on the Twins of Jove with prayer and vow,
Gathered in fear upon the lofty prow,
And sacrifice with snow-white lambs, - the wind
And the huge billow bursting close behind,
Even then beneath the weltering waters bear
The staggering ship - they suddenly appear,
On yellow wings rushing athwart the sky,
And lull the blasts in mute tranquillity,
And strew the waves on the white Ocean's bed,
Fair omen of the voyage; from toil and dread
The sailors rest, rejoicing in the sight,
And plough the quiet sea in safe delight. #Quote by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Blame quotes by Victor Hugo
#148. To blame or praise men on account of the result, is almost like praising or blaming figures on account of the sum total. Whatever is to happen, happens; whatever is to blow, blows. The eternal serenity does not suffer from these north winds. Above Revolutions, Truth and Justice reign, as the starry heavens above the tempest. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Blame quotes by Mary Douglas

Blame quotes by J.M. Coetzee

Blame quotes by Thomas Frank
#151. Innovation liberalism is "a liberalism of the rich," to use the straightforward phrase of local labor leader Harris Gruman. This doctrine has no patience with the idea that everyone should share in society's wealth. What Massachusetts liberals pine for, by and large, is a more perfect meritocracy--a system where everyone gets an equal chance and the truly talented get to rise. Once that requirement is satisfied--once diversity has been achieved and the brilliant people of all races and genders have been identified and credentialed--this species of liberal can't really conceive of any further grievance against the system. The demands of ordinary working-class people, Gruman says, are unpersuasive to them: "Janitors, fast-food servers home care or child care providers--most of whom are women and people of color--they don't have college degrees."

And if you don't have a college degree in Boston--brother, you've got no one to blame but yourself. #Quote by Thomas Frank

#152. We are not doing it for Jagen. We are doing it for our kind."
"We?" Rayna snaps. "What Gift do you have, Grom? Oh, that's right. You and Nalia get to stay safely behind while me and Galen and Emma drown an entire island."
Oh, heck no. "Um, I'm not killing anyone," I say, raising my hand. "Not humans, not Syrena."
"It's a good thing your Gift isn't deadly then, isn't it?" Rayna sneers. "I have an idea. You can give the humans their last meal. That would be special, wouldn't it?"
"How would you like to go without eating for a while?" I shoot back. I could use my Gift to send the fish away from her, or I could just bust all her teeth out. Maturity seems to be evaporating into the air. I wonder if her Gift includes pushing all my buttons in rapid-point-five seconds. But then, I know her animosity is really toward Grom, not me. All I'm doing is feeding her anxiety.
Galen tucks a tendril of my hair behind my ear. It's enough to distract me and he knows it. I give him a sour look for interfering, but he grins. "You don't have to kill anyone, angelfish. In fact, we need your help to save them." He seems to be telling me something with his eyes, but I'm not picking up on it. I'd love to blame it on the pain meds.
"Doesn't that kind of miss the point?" Rayna says.
"Of course not," Galen says. "Our objective is to rescue our kind, not kill the humans. We can do that without destroying them."
Everyone is all ears, but Galen is not ready to divulge #Quote by Anna Banks
Blame quotes by Stephen King
#153. The Turtle, son. I made the universe, but please don't blame me for it; I had a bellyache. Help me! Please help me! - I take no stand in these #Quote by Stephen King
Blame quotes by Maya Angelou
#154. I'll never know why it was important to him that the couple (he said it later that he'd never seen them before) would take a picture of the whole Mr. Johnson back to Little Rock.
He must have been tired of being crippled, as prisoners tire of penitentiary bars and the guilty tire of blame. The high topped shoes and the cane, his uncontrollable muscles and thick tongue, and the looks he suffered of either contempt or pity had simply worn him out, and for one afternoon, one part of an afternoon, he wanted no part of them.
I understood and felt closer to him at that moment than ever before or since. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Blame quotes by David Richo
#155. Mindful grief means mourning and letting go of the past without expectation, fear, censure, blame, shame, control and so forth. Without such mindful grief, neither past nor person can be laid to rest. #Quote by David Richo
Blame quotes by Mesa Selimovic
#156. But we belong to no one, we're always on some frontier, always someone's dowry. Is it then surprising that we're poor? For centuries we've been trying to find, trying to recognize ourselves. Soon we won't even know who we are, we're already forgetting that we've even been striving for anything. Others do us the honor of letting us march under their banners, since we have none of our own. They entice us when they need us, and reject us when we're no longer any use to them. The saddest land in the world, the most unhappy people in the world. We're losing our identity, but we cannot assume another, foreign one. We've been severed from our roots, but haven't become part of anything else; foreign to everyone, both to those who are our kin and those who won't take us in and adopt us as their own. We live at a crossroads of worlds, at a border between peoples, in everyone's way. And someone always thinks we're to blame for something. The waves of history crash against us, as against a reef. We're fed up with those in power and we've made a virtue out of distress: we've become noble-minded out of spite. You're ruthless on a whim. So who's backward? #Quote by Mesa Selimovic
Blame quotes by Erik Pevernagie
#157. If thinking and reason crack under pressure of emotional convulsions or when commissioned facts are resulting from fibs and fake constructions, truth may be in great peril. ( "Blame storming") #Quote by Erik Pevernagie
Blame quotes by Jarod Kintz
#158. It was one-way glass, and I was on the inside and she was on the outside. She was looking at me with the confidence of a woman who knows she won't be scrutinized for scrutinizing me, and I was looking at her like I normally look at myself - though she probably thought I was staring at her breasts. Well, can you blame me? I had a stain on my shirt - and she had great tits. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Blame quotes by Benjamin Carson
#159. Nobody can hinder you from doing what you want, if that's what you set your mind to. You can always find a hook to hang excuses on, but they're only excuses. You don't have anyone to blame
but yourself. Nobody else makes you fail. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Blame quotes by Jonathan Tropper
#160. That's the problem with college kids. I blame Hollywood for skewing their perspective. Life is just a big romantic comedy to them, and if you meet cute, happily-ever-after is a foregone conclusion. So there we were, the pretty blond girl milking her very slight congenital limp in order to seem damaged and more interesting, and the nervous boy with the ridiculous hair trying so hard to be clever, the two of us hypnotized by the syncopated rhythms of our furiously beating hearts and throbbing loins. That stupid, desperate, horny kid I was, standing obliviously on the fault line of embryonic love, when really, what he should have been doing was running for his life. #Quote by Jonathan Tropper
Blame quotes by Meredith Duran
#161. If you bring out the worst in a man, that doesn't mean you're to blame for his sin. #Quote by Meredith Duran
Blame quotes by Mary E. Pearson
#162. So you approve of what I did?" I asked hesitantly. "Let's just say I wasn't overly surprised." "And Bryn and Regan?" He sat beside me and looped his arm over my shoulder, pulling me close. "My dear sweet sister, your brothers all love you as much as we ever did, and none of us blame you for wanting more from a marriage, though we've all been worried for your well-being. It's only a matter of time before someone discovers you." I #Quote by Mary E. Pearson
Blame quotes by Leigh Newman
#163. Maybe it's easier to think about dishonesty and what kind of trouble you can get into as a writer when love and honesty collide and you sidestep that collision, either because you want to protect somebody or you want to blame somebody - which are the usual impulses in love: protection and blame, frequently at the same time - so you don't exactly tell the truth. #Quote by Leigh Newman
Blame quotes by Patricia Cornwell
#164. The public is blaming the city officials, who in turn have to find someone else to blame. It's the nature of the beast. If the police, the politicians, can pass the buck on down the line, they will. #Quote by Patricia Cornwell
Blame quotes by Ryu Murakami
#165. These young men, in other words, represented a variety of types, but one thing they had in common was that they'd all given up on committing positively to anything in life. This was not their fault, however. The blame lay with a certain ubiquitous spirit of the times, transmitted to them by their respective mothers. And perhaps it goes without saying that this "spirit of the times" was in fact an oppressive value system based primarily upon the absolute certainty that nothing in this world was ever going to change. #Quote by Ryu Murakami
Blame quotes by Rana Awdish
#166. you have a really hard job'... There was no judgement and no attribution of blame, only acceptance. It was such a simple validation, and yet for us, in those moments of risk and exposure, it was what we needed. #Quote by Rana Awdish
Blame quotes by Steve Maraboli
#167. The longer you blame the mirror, the longer you throw away the power to change what it is reflecting. #Quote by Steve Maraboli
Blame quotes by Sonakshi Sinha
#168. My brothers always like to believe that my father pampered me and I am spoilt. While it is not true, they felt that way. As for my dad, I could not do anything wrong. So, if I did something wrong, I would put the blame on them, and he would shout at them. #Quote by Sonakshi Sinha
Blame quotes by J.D. Vance
#169. And a young man with every reason to work - a wife-to-be to support and a baby on the way - carelessly tossing aside a good job with excellent health insurance. More troublingly, when it was all over, he thought something had been done to him. There is a lack of agency here - a feeling that you have little control over your life and a willingness to blame everyone but yourself. This is distinct from the larger economic landscape of modern America. It's #Quote by J.D. Vance
Blame quotes by Nikki Mills From 'Life Song'
#170. I don't have sympathy for people who wrap themselves in injury caused by their inability to deal with personal inadequacies and refusal to learn from their failures. Such people blame others rather than accept responsibility themselves. #Quote by Nikki Mills From 'Life Song'
Blame quotes by Hinowa Kouzuki
#171. No matter how ridiculous it is, its good to express your emotions while you are young. If not, you end up reaching your limit. We accumulate small and trivial experiences in life. But for those who can't treat their experiences as food to growth, they will reach the point of refusing to associate with other people with one line "I'm not to blame. #Quote by Hinowa Kouzuki
Blame quotes by Rachel Caine
#172. Human nature was all about shifting blame ... and responsibility. How else could you explain concentration camps and genocide and all the awful things people did to each other every day? They just carried on life and pretended like the evil didn't exist, as long as it was happening out of their direct view. #Quote by Rachel Caine
Blame quotes by Margaret Atwood
#173. Don't blame me, blame history, he says, smiling. Such things happen. Falling in love has been recorded, or at least those words have. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Blame quotes by Julia Quinn
#174. Your talents are for pointing guns and removing necklaces off ladies' necks?'
'I charm the necklaces off their necks ... Kindly make the distinction.'
'Oh, please.'
'I charmed you.'
She was all indignation. 'You did not.'
'Recall the night in question, Miss Eversleigh. The moonlight, the soft wind.'
'There was no wind.'
'You're spoiling my memory,' he growled.
'There was no wind,' she stated. 'You are romanticizing the encounter.'
'Can you blame me? he returned, smiling at her wickedly. 'I never know who is going to step through the carriage door. Most of the time I get a wheezy old badger. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Blame quotes by George MacDonald
#175. To be unable to bear disapproval was an unworthy weakness. But in her case it came nowise of the pride which blame stirs to resentment, but altogether of the self-depreciation which disapproval rouses to yet greater dispiriting. Praise was to her a precious thing, in part because it made her feel as if she could go on; blame, a misery, in part because it made her feel as if all was of no use, she never could do anything right. She had not yet learned that the right is the right, come of praise or blame what may. The right will produce more right and be its own reward--in the end a reward altogether infinite, for God will meet it with what is deeper than all right, namely, perfect love. #Quote by George MacDonald
Blame quotes by Barry Eisler
#176. Psychologically, it's always more pleasurable to blame others for our problems than it is to acknowledge our own responsibility. #Quote by Barry Eisler
Blame quotes by Laura Moriarty
#177. My mother says that when Mrs. Rowley is mean, which is generally the case, it is really because she is just unhappy, and who could blame her with a husband like that ... She says this is really the only reason people are ever mean
they have something hurting inside of them, a claw of unhappiness scratching at their hearts, and it hurts them so much that sometimes they have to push it right out of their mouths to scratch someone else, just to give themselves a rest, a moment of relief. #Quote by Laura Moriarty
Blame quotes by Paul Auster
#178. Guilt kept me going. It was impossible not to blame myself for what had happened, but even guilt was a comfort. It was a human feeling, a sign that I was still attached to the same world that other men lived in. #Quote by Paul Auster
Blame quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#179. Blaming and punishing others are superficial expressions of anger. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Blame quotes by Ryan Holiday

Blame quotes by Russell Anthony Gibbs
#181. Know that you are God/the Universe and that anywhere you aim/focus your consciousness you create reality in one of the infinite physical and nonphysical realms. It all begins with thought, contemplation, prayer, dreams, plans, desires or any method of focusing your consciousness. If you wish to praise or blame God/the Universe for something, you should do it in a mirror. It is you and has always been you in charge of all reality. #Quote by Russell Anthony Gibbs
Blame quotes by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
#182. There had been no enemies, just one single adversary, herself; her future had been killed by her own imprudence, by the reckless Salina pride; and now, just at the moment when her memories had come alive again after so many years, she found herself even without the solace of being able to blame her own unhappiness on others, a solace which is the last protective device of the desperate. #Quote by Giuseppe Tomasi Di Lampedusa
Blame quotes by Robert Bloch
#183. The man who smiles when things go wrong has thought of someone to blame it on. #Quote by Robert Bloch
Blame quotes by Gloria Steinem
#184. I think that we need to change the culture, not blame the people that are playing the only game that exists. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Blame quotes by Kent Hovind
#185. Oklahoma City bombing was done on purpose. Did you know the Federal Government blew up their own building to blame it on the militias and to get rid of some people that weren't cooperating with the system? #Quote by Kent Hovind
Blame quotes by Joan Didion

Blame quotes by Jeekeshen Chinnappen
#188. The moment you blame life for who you are is that very moment you ignore your talents and inner abilities to change the world. #Quote by Jeekeshen Chinnappen
Blame quotes by Richard J. Foster
#189. Overconsumption is a "cancer eating away at our spiritual vitals." It cuts the heart right out of our compassion. It distances us from the great masses of broken bleeding humanity. It converts us into materialists. We become less able to ask moral questions. For example, just because we have the economic muscle to buy up vast amounts of the world's oil, does that give us the right to do so? When the poor farmer of India is unable to buy a gallon of gasoline to run his simple water pump because the world's demand has priced him out of the market, who is to blame? #Quote by Richard J. Foster
Blame quotes by William F. Buckley, Jr.
#190. Those who suffer from the abuse of drugs have themselves to blame for it. This does not mean that society is absolved from active concern for their plight. It does mean that their plight is subordinate to the plight of those citizens who do not experiment with drugs but whose life, liberty, and property are substantially affected by the illegalization of the drugs sought after by the minority. #Quote by William F. Buckley, Jr.
Blame quotes by Glenn Beck
#191. After the signing of the Constitution, Benjamin Franklin was asked by a woman on the street, "What have you given us, sir?" Franklin Responded, "A Republic, if you can keep it."
A critical moment in history has come; our Republic is in jeopardy. Can we keep it?
If the answer to that question, as I fear, is "no," then we have no one to blame but ourselves. #Quote by Glenn Beck
Blame quotes by Judith Viorst
#192. No-fault guilt: This is when, instead of trying to figure out who's to blame, everyone pays. #Quote by Judith Viorst
Blame quotes by Jenny Lloyd
#193. How easy it is to do wrong when there is someone else to blame. #Quote by Jenny Lloyd
Blame quotes by Frank Sinatra
#194. I lived in a plenty tough neighborhood. When somebody called me a 'dirty little Guinea', there was only one thing to do-break his head. When I got older, I realized that you shouldn't do it that way. I realized that you've got to do it through education. Children are not to blame. It is the parents. How can a child know whether his playmate is an Italian, a Jew or Irish, unless the parents have discussed it in the privacy of their homes. #Quote by Frank Sinatra
Blame quotes by William J. Clinton
#195. You can't blame your opponents for applying a strategy that beats your brains out with regularity. #Quote by William J. Clinton
Blame quotes by Erica Jong
#196. We assent to wifedom because we are so used to having someone to blame and so unused to freedom. We prefer self-punishment to the conquest of our fears. We prefer our anger to our freedom.
If women were totally conscious of the part of themselves that gives away power to men, the prediction of victory might prove true. But we are far from this self-knowledge. And we move further and further away as we retreat from the psychoanalytic model of the self. As long as we disclaim the importance of unconscious motivations, of the existence of the unconscious itself, we cannot root out the slave in ourselves. Freedom is hand to love. Freedom takes away all the excuses. #Quote by Erica Jong
Blame quotes by Rupi Kaur
#197. I understand this world broke you. It has been so hard on your feet. I don't blame you for not knowing how to remain soft with me. Sometimes I stay up thinking of all the places you are hurting which you'll never care to mention. I come from the same aching blood. From the same bone so desperate for attention I collapse in on myself. I am your daughter. I know the small talk is the only way you know how to tell me you love me. Cause it's the only way I know how to tell you. #Quote by Rupi Kaur
Blame quotes by Carol S. Dweck
#198. Another way people with the fixed mindset try to repair their self-esteem after a failure is by assigning blame or making excuses. #Quote by Carol S. Dweck
Blame quotes by Julia Quinn
#199. It's very bad form to spy on one's host," he said, planting his hands on his hips and somehow managing to look both authoritative and relaxed at the same time.
"It was an accident," she grumbled.
"Oh, I believe you there," he said. "But even if you didn't intend to spy on me, the fact remains that when the opportunity arose, you took it."
"Do you blame me?"
He grinned. "Not at all. I would have done precisely the same thing."
Her mouth fell open.
"Oh, don't pretend to be offended," he said.
"I'm not pretending."
He leaned a bit closer. "To tell the truth, I'm quite flattered."
"It was academic curiosity," she ground out. "I assure you."
His smile grew sly. "So you're telling me that you would have spied upon any naked man you'd come across?"
"Of course not!"
"As I said," he drawled, leaning back against a tree, "I'm flattered."
"Well, now that we have that settled," Sophie said with a sniff, "I'm going back to Your Cottage. #Quote by Julia Quinn
Blame quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#200. Life is short, but I never thought my life would end this way. I have myself to blame for that. I saw all of the red flags, but I ignored them one at a time. Every time I ignored them, I was buying more time, I received more time, and I gambled with the time that I was given. It shows you that buying time is temporary because sooner or later time runs out."
~Love is respect ♥~ #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
