Shame quotes by Eric Hoffer
#1. When we lose our individual independence in the corporateness of a mass movement, we find a new freedom - freedom to hate, bully, lie, torture, murder and betray without shame and remorse. #Quote by Eric Hoffer
Shame quotes by Cassandra Clare
#2. Magnus knelt first. Clary would never have guessed that. Magnus was so proud, but then it was a pride that transcended the emptiness of gestures. She doubted it would shame him to kneel when it meant nothing to him. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Shame quotes by Nicole Williams
#3. My sense of teasing is completely lost on you.", Patrick said, hoisting himself back up. "It's a shame too. Most people tell me my sense of humor is my best quality, only outdone by my otherworldly good looks. #Quote by Nicole Williams
Shame quotes by Neel Burton
#4. 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
Shame quotes by J.M. Darhower
#5. I would destroy that pussy."
"You think so?" I ask, those words making parts of me tingle that haven't come alive in quite a while, like a match being struck and finally finding a flame.
"Without a doubt," he says, not letting up. "I'd wreck you for any man that came along after me, put them all to shame, because I'd give you exactly what you wanted."
"How could you possibly know what I want?"
"Because," he says, grabbing a fistful of my hair and twisting my head, forcing me to turn away from him. "Looking at you is like looking in a mirror, Scarlet. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Shame quotes by Esperanza Spalding
#6. I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me. #Quote by Esperanza Spalding
Shame quotes by Miranda Hart
#7. Life is a series of embarrassing moments which leave you feeling alone in your confusion and shame #Quote by Miranda Hart
Shame quotes by Arla Dahl
#8. Her face burned with shame. Even wedded and sharing a bed, no man would touch a woman as he had touched her. #Quote by Arla Dahl
Shame quotes by Sallie Tisdale
#9. The anger and shame of these women I hold in one hand, and the basin in the other. The distance between the two, the length I pace and try to measure, is the size of an abortion. #Quote by Sallie Tisdale
Shame quotes by Jodi Picoult
#10. When we sat down on the couch again, you curled up against my side, like you used to when you were a toddler.
What I wanted to say to you, but didn't, was this: Don't use me as your model. I'm the last person you should look up to. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Shame quotes by Christina Aguilera
#11. 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
Shame quotes by Bob Dylan
#12. Done so many evil things in the name of love, it's a crying shame. I never did see no fire that could put out a flame. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Shame quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#13. Our words always paint two portraits when we describe our families to others. Outsiders cannot but see the small peeves and follies that wrinkle our relationships with our loved ones. The claims we make in defensive certainty
that we were the one wronged, that we were the one who wanted the best
cannot but fall on skeptical ears since everyone makes the same claimsof virtue and innocence. We are always more than we want to be in the eyes of others simply because we are blind to the bulk of what we are.
...
Mimara had wanted him to see her as a victim, as a long-suffering penitent, more captive than daughter, and not as someone embittered and petulant, someone who often held others accountable for her inability to feel safe, to feel anything unpolluted by the perpetual pang of shame ...
And he loved her the more for it. #Quote by R. Scott Bakker
Shame quotes by Oliviero Toscani
#14. Advertising agencies don't care about a better world in the end. They are servants of their client: what the client wants is what they get. Their only problem is to not lose the budget. I think its a shame because advertising is so boring and it can be so interesting. They should ask more artists to make interesting campaigns. #Quote by Oliviero Toscani
Shame quotes by Alec Hutson
#15. Have you ever run from a fight?"
Nel snorted a laugh, quieting the chirping of the birds in the gilded cages hanging from the branches above them. "I've run from more fights than I've fought. It's why I'm still alive. Men who carry weapons tend to have a strange belief that it is better to die honorably than live to fight another day. Foolish. If the odds are against me I flee – and I've never felt any shame doing just that. #Quote by Alec Hutson
Shame quotes by Craig Thompson
#16. Shame is always easier to handle if you have someone to share it with. #Quote by Craig Thompson
Shame quotes by Rick Riordan
#17. My mother made a squeaking sound that might of been either "yes" or "help".
Poseidon took it as a yes and came in.
Paul was looking back and forth between us, trying to read our expressions.
Finally he stepped forward.
"Hi, I'm Paul Blofis."
Poseidon raised an eyebrow and then shook his hand.
"Blowfish, did you say?"
"Ah, no. Blofis, actually."
"Oh, I see," Poseidon said. "A shame. I quite like blowfish. I am Poseidon."
"Poseidon? That's an interesting name."
"Yes, I like it. I've gone by other names, but I do prefer Poseidon."
"Like the god of the sea."
"Very much like that, yes"
"Well!" My mother interrupted. "Um, were so glad you could drop by. Paul, this is Percy's father."
"Ah." Paul nodded, though he didn't look real pleased. "I see."
Poseidon smiled at me. "There you are, my boy. And Tyson, hello, son!"
"Daddy!" Tyson [shouted]...
Paul's jaw dropped. He stared at my mother. "Tyson is..."
"Not mine," she promised. "It's a long story. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Shame quotes by William Shakespeare
#18. Antioch, farewell! for wisdom sees, those men blush not in actions blacker than the night, will 'schew no course to keep them from the light. One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke. Poison and treason are the hands of sin; Ay, and the targets to put off the shame. Then, lest my life be cropped to keep you clear, By flight I'll shun the danger which I fear. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Shame quotes by Mark McKinnon
#19. Unfortunately, in American politics there are no standards for shame. #Quote by Mark McKinnon
Shame quotes by G.K. Chesterton
#20. The men of the east may search the scrolls,
For sure fates and fame,
But the men that drink the blood of God go singing to their shame. #Quote by G.K. Chesterton
Shame quotes by Judith Martin
#21. Shame is the proper reaction when one has purposefully violated the accepted behavior of society. Inflicting it is etiquette's response when its rules are disobeyed. The law has all kinds of nasty ways of retaliating when it is disregarded, but etiquette has only a sense of social shame to deter people from treating others in ways they know are wrong. So naturally Miss Manners wants to maintain the sense of shame. Some forms of discomfort are fully justified, and the person who feels shame ought to be dealing with removing its causes rather than seeking to relieve the symptoms. #Quote by Judith Martin
Shame quotes by S.J.D. Peterson
#22. He didn't deserve someone like Lorcan. He'd turned Lorcan's pure and wonderful feelings into something ugly, something to be ashamed of. He stepped into his room, shutting the door quietly behind him, sitting on the edge of the bed with his head in his hands as he listened to Lorcan move around his room. He did something he hadn't allowed himself since his daddy had passed. He cried - for his loss, for what could have been ... but mostly, he cried in shame. #Quote by S.J.D. Peterson
Shame quotes by Valerie Porr
#23. People with BPD tend to judge themselves and others in extreme ways. They will often use excessively positive terms, idealizing or glorifying, or excessively negative terms, demonizing or devaluing themselves or others. They look at themselves with harsh and critical negative self-judgments that increase their sense of shame. #Quote by Valerie Porr
Shame quotes by Maureen Brady
#24. I am filled with truth at my center where I once held shame. #Quote by Maureen Brady
Shame quotes by Gwenn Wright
#25. I had turned to leave and he had called after me. "Miss Maria, I kin no other woman who could be wearing men's trousers and be dripping such as ye are and look quite so lovely. It's a right shame your mother is marrying you off to that great sot!"
I had turned to call back to him, "I doubt very much we will have to worry about that after today! #Quote by Gwenn Wright
Shame quotes by Mark Twain
#26. Our heroes are men who do things which we recognize, with regret, and sometimes with a secret shame, that we cannot do. #Quote by Mark Twain
Shame quotes by Kelly Quindlen
#27. We have to take ownership for our words. Words are powerful. They can be devastating. If your words carry hate--if they shame others, if they make them doubt that they are loved--Hannah, you don't want to own words like that. #Quote by Kelly Quindlen
Shame quotes by Noor Shirazie
#28. Shame on me for letting you
define all that I was,
all that I am. #Quote by Noor Shirazie
Shame quotes by Langston Hughes
#29. We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased, we are glad. If they are not, it doesn't matter. We know we are beautiful. And ugly too. #Quote by Langston Hughes
Shame quotes by Adam Smith
#30. The great source of both the misery and disorders of human life, seems to arise from over-rating the difference between one permanent situation and another. Avarice over-rates the difference between poverty and riches: ambition, that between a private and a public station: vain-glory, that between obscurity and extensive reputation. The person under the influence of any of those extravagant passions, is not only miserable in his actual situation, but is often disposed to disturb the peace of society, in order to arrive at that which he so foolishly admires. The slightest observation, however, might satisfy him, that, in all the ordinary situations of human life, a well-disposed mind may be equally calm, equally cheerful, and equally contented. Some of those situations may, no doubt, deserve to be preferred to others: but none of them can deserve to be pursued with that passionate ardour which drives us to violate the rules either of prudence or of justice; or to corrupt the future tranquillity of our minds, either by shame from the remembrance of our own folly, or by remorse from the horror of our own injustice. #Quote by Adam Smith
Shame quotes by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
#31. O, brothers! let us leave the shame and sin Of taking vainly in a plaintive mood, The holy name of Grief
holy herein, That, by the grief of One, came all our good. #Quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Shame quotes by Simon Pegg
#32. It happened in tiny increments as I remember. Mr Miller sat on the edge of the desk, which shifted slightly; the sudden exertion of the correction he had to make to regain his balance resulted in a double blow-off; two little rasping braps, accompanied by an expression of amused shame on his face, before the table suddenly lurched, cracked and then collapsed on to the floor with Mr Miller on top of it. There must have been a nanosecond of disbelief and amazement at the confluence of this combination of farcical ingredients before the class exploded into frenzied, screeching giggles, which Mr Miller simply had to allow, since his embarrassment and indignation would have only made it worse. #Quote by Simon Pegg
Shame quotes by Jodi Lundgren
#33. This must be what they call denial. It means things are too screwed up to deal with so you pretend they never happened, that you didn't notice. You gloss over the facts with little half-truths...You avoid looking each other in the eye because you're both hiding what you know. It deadens you. Layers of something like gel separate us. All we're left with are secrets and shame. #Quote by Jodi Lundgren
Shame quotes by Mark Epstein
#34. Meditation did not relieve me of my anxiety so much as flesh it out. It took my anxious response to the world, about which I felt a lot of confusion and shame, and let me understand it more completely. Perhaps the best way to phrase it is to say that meditation showed me that the other side of anxiety is desire. They exist in relationship to each other, not independently. #Quote by Mark Epstein
Shame quotes by Nathan Filer
#35. Words like guilt and shame and nightmares - the kind of nightmares that drag you from sleep, and leave you reaching for something no longer there. #Quote by Nathan Filer
Shame quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#36. She kept saying, "My husband will be back soon. He went for help. He'll be back." But that's the kind of lie people tell sometimes when they got only strangers to rely on. There's shame in that, so people lie. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Shame quotes by Hermione Daguin
#37. Why should I lessen your load while I suffer in silence? Why? If I forgive everybody, none of you would have anything else to worry about, no shame, no regrets, no nothing. What about me? I would still be suffering. So, hell to the no. I'm not giving anybody my forgiveness. If I'm suffering, you all have to suffer with me. #Quote by Hermione Daguin
Shame quotes by Mason Cooley
#38. Shameless: Punish me for my desire if you will. It burns still. #Quote by Mason Cooley
Shame quotes by Saleem Haddad
#39. 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
Shame quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#40. A long-time associate, Beth, who likes to refer to herself as the 'Grill Bitch', excelled at putting loudmouths and fools into their proper place. She refused to behave any differently than her male co-workers: she'd change in the same locker area, dropping her pants right alongside them. She was as sexually aggressive, and as vocal about it, as her fellow cooks, but unlikely to suffer behavior she found demeaning. One sorry Moroccan cook who pinched her ass found himself suddenly bent over a cutting board with Beth dry-humping him from behind, saying, 'How do you like it, bitch?' The guy almost died of shame - and never repeated that mistake again.
Another female line cook I had the pleasure of working with arrived at work one morning to find that an Ecuadorian pasta cook had decorated her station with some particularly ugly hard-core pornography of pimply-assed women getting penetrated in every orifice by pot-bellied guys with prison tattoos and back hair. She didn't react at all, but a little later, while passing through the pasta man's station, casually remarked. 'Jose, I see you brought in some photos of the family. Mom looks good for her age. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Shame quotes by Rachel Van Dyken
#41. That, he said as he kissed her nose.Is a shame.You should be told you're beautiful every day.Because every day it's true, and every time i see you ,you grow in your beauty.Just because people don't say the words, doesn't mean its any less true,Kace. #Quote by Rachel Van Dyken
Shame quotes by C.F. White
#42. He's an eternal child. Sees the world like it should be in a fairy tale, minus the evil characters. Everything is bright and beautiful and everyone is his friend." Micky hesitated. "It's a real shame that life isn't like that. Because a world full of Flynns would be the one I wanna live in. #Quote by C.F. White
Shame quotes by Richard Stallman
#43. I don't have a problem with someone using their talents to become successful, I just don't think the highest calling is success. Things like freedom and the expansion of knowledge are beyond success, beyond the personal. Personal success is not wrong, but it is limited in importance, and once you have enough of it it is a shame to keep striving for that, instead of for truth, beauty, or justice. #Quote by Richard Stallman
Shame quotes by Kangana Ranaut
#44. 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
Shame quotes by Stephanie Lahart
#45. #TeamLightSkin vs. #TeamDarkSkin… REALLY, are you serious? To the black females that participate in this garbage, shame on you! Yes, I said it and I won't take it back. After all that we've been through as a race regarding the light-skinned niggers versus the dark-skinned niggers, you're actually keeping this garbage up? It's time to wake up my Beautiful Black Queens! Educate yourself and know your history. This shouldn't be something that we're entertaining. WE are #TeamMelanin! Period. Enough of the foolishness! Respect yourself. Respect our race. We should be building one another up, not tearing each other down. Melanin is Exquisite Beauty in EVERY shade. Together, WE are strong, unstoppable, and powerful. Enough is enough! I encourage you to stop participating in things that keep us divided. Real Talk! #Quote by Stephanie Lahart
Shame quotes by Michelangelo
#46. Led by long years to my last hours, too late, O world, I know your joys for what they are. You promise a peace which is not yours to give and the repose that dies before it is born. The years of fear and shame to which Heaven now set a term, renew nothing in me but the old sweet error in which, living overlong a man kills his soul with no gain to his body. I say and I know having put it to the proof, that he has the better part in Heaven whose death falls nearest his birth. #Quote by Michelangelo
Shame quotes by Brene Brown
#47. We've all fallen, and we have the skinned knees and bruised hearts to prove it. But scars are easier to talk about than they are to show, with all the remembered feelings laid bare. And rarely do we see wounds that are in the process of healing. I'm not sure if it's because we feel too much shame to let anyone see a process as intimate as overcoming hurt, or if it's because even when we muster the courage to share our still-incomplete healing, people reflexively look away. #Quote by Brene Brown
Shame quotes by Geneen Roth
#48. I feel like it's been important for me to use my own personal experiences with food and money to help people to not feel ashamed. I felt so much shame about my own experiences. #Quote by Geneen Roth
Shame quotes by Mary C. Lamia
#49. 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
Shame quotes by Ethan Canin
#50. An infant, in his first sleepiness, must let go of the world; a man must learn to die. What comes between are the grains of sand. Ambition. Loss. Envy. Desire. Hatred. Love. Tenderness. Joy. Shame. Loneliness. Ecstasy. Ache. Surrender. #Quote by Ethan Canin
Shame quotes by Wesley J. Wildman
#51. Like priests with their backs to the world and their faces to the altar, the postmodern protectors of shame need to turn around, face the people, and exchange their sackcloth of shame for robes of celebration. The dangers of assertion, of generality and theory, meet their match in, and only in, a tireless devotion to self-criticism and the search for correction.
Truth, #Quote by Wesley J. Wildman
Shame quotes by Brene Brown
#52. Rather than being a tool for connection, sympathy emerged in the data as a form of disconnection. Sympathy is removed: When someone says, "I feel sorry for you" or "That must be terrible," they are standing at a safe distance. Rather than conveying the powerful "me too" of empathy, it communicates "not me," and then adds, "But I do feel for you." Sympathy is more likely to be a shame trigger than something that heals shame. #Quote by Brene Brown
Shame quotes by Thomas Southerne
#53. When guilt is in its blush of infancy, it trembles in a tenderness of shame; and the first eye that pierces through the veil that hides the secret brings it to the face #Quote by Thomas Southerne
Shame quotes by Rickey Henderson
#54. People always ask me why I still want to play, but I want to know why no one will give me an opportunity. It's like they put a stamp on me: 'Hall of Fame. You're done. That's it.' #Quote by Rickey Henderson
Shame quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#55. My rage outweighs my shame, as always happens when one is really ashamed and knows he ought to be. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque
Shame quotes by Christopher Moore
#56. She hugged me and I could feel the heat rise in my face, either from shame or love, like there was a difference. #Quote by Christopher Moore
Shame quotes by Jeanette LeBlanc
#57. Life cracks us into unrecognizable shards of former incarnations. Slivers of our hurt and our pain and our shame nestles next to fragments of our truth, our divinity, our fierce reclamation of power.

It is this very brokenness that allows us to knit together, kaleidoscope style. And we spin and shift and turn to the light until we appear brilliant, lit from within. Suddenly we are revealed; unexpected beauty born directly from brokenness.

We have to be willing to break in order to become. #Quote by Jeanette LeBlanc
Shame quotes by Gemma Burgess
#58. It wasn't a walk of shame," I moan. "It was a dash of total fucking mortification. #Quote by Gemma Burgess
Shame quotes by Robert J. Crane
#59. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and I'll put a whole magazine of bullets in your skull. #Quote by Robert J. Crane
Shame quotes by Seneca The Younger
#60. There is nothing that Nature has made necessary which is more easy than death; we are longer a-coming into the world than going out of it; and there is not any minute of our lives wherein we may not reasonably expect it. Nay, it is but a momen'ts work, the parting of soul and body. What a shame is it then to stand in fear of anything so long that is over so soon! #Quote by Seneca The Younger
Shame quotes by Anna Akhmatova
#61. And if you knew from what scraps
Poems are born - without shame
Like yellow dandelions by a wormy fence,
Like wild spinach or the common burr. #Quote by Anna Akhmatova
Shame quotes by Brene Brown
#62. One woman said, "Shame is hating yourself and understanding why other people hate you too. #Quote by Brene Brown
Shame quotes by Sherwood Smith
#63. When she was done, I said, "Thanks, Ria. That's as good as an afternoon nap in the summer."
"A shame you have to put it up again," she said, smiling. "It's so pretty--the color of autumn leaves. Promise you'll never cut it."
"I won't. It's the only thing I have left to share with my mother, the color of our hair. And she always wanted me to grow it out." My fingers worked quickly from old habit as I braided it up again, wrapped it twice around my head, and tucked the end in. "But I can't parade around in long hair during a war. Or, I suppose I could, except then I'd end up carrying half the mountain in it."
"You can wear it down after we win, then, and start a new fashion."
"You'll be the one starting the fashions," I said, laughing up at her.
"Duchess Oria," she said, swishing around my tiny tent. "New silk shoes every day--twice a day! I can hardly wait."
"That'll do," Julen said to Oria. She was vigorously brushing mud off my alternate pair of woolen trousers. "You stop your nonsense and go and get your rest. We'll have to make a supply run again tomorrow." Oria stuck her tongue out at her mother, grinned at me, and ran out. Julen laid my other tunic down. "This is the best I can make of these trousers; the mud will not come out. Your brother's old tunic looks even worse," she said, frowning heavily. "I wish I could wash these properly! Even so, they wouldn't look much better. 'Tis shameful, you not dressing to befit your station. Especially o #Quote by Sherwood Smith
Shame quotes by Simon Wood
#64. Shame was one of those things that had to be excised like a cancer, but it was a hard thing to remove when it was wrapped around your heart. #Quote by Simon Wood
Shame quotes by Amy Hatvany
#65. Humiliation is about shame. Becoming humble is about being of use to others. It helps you get off the self-pity pot and stop wallowing around in your own crap. #Quote by Amy Hatvany
Shame quotes by Joan Aiken
#66. 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
Shame quotes by Marcy Dermansky
#67. Judy shook her head when she saw me the next day, dressed in the same clothes I had worn to work the day before. "We used to call that the walk of shame," she said. #Quote by Marcy Dermansky
Shame quotes by AngstGoddess003
#68. ...we'd be okay. Not perfect, not entirely healthy, not even rational where our love for one another was concerned. Just okay. Merely sufficient, at best. But there'd be only acceptance - never shame - in being two divine failures as we emerged from slumber, perfectly flawed, and wide awake. #Quote by AngstGoddess003
Shame quotes by Andre Aciman
#69. But sleep would not come, and sure enough not one but two troubling thoughts, like paired specters materializing out of the fog of sleep, stood watch over me: desire and shame, the longing to throw open my window and, without thinking, run into his room stark-naked, and, on the other hand, my repeated inability to take the slightest risk to bring any of this about. There they were, the legacy of youth, the two mascots of my life, hunger and fear, watching over me, saying, So many before you have taken the chance and been rewarded, why can't you? No answer. So many have balked, so why must you? No answer. And then it came, as ever deriding me: If not later, Elio, when? #Quote by Andre Aciman
Shame quotes by Rebecca Allard
#70. These secrets are not secrets per se but are truths hidden from public view. I had to write this book. There had to be a reason I survived to tell this story. #Quote by Rebecca Allard
Shame quotes by J. Robert Oppenheimer
#71. In battle, in forest, at the precipice in the mountains,
On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows,
In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame,
The good deeds a man has done before defend him. #Quote by J. Robert Oppenheimer
Shame quotes by Lloyd Banks
#72. I have family in Ponce. It's a shame that my grandfather passed and I wasn't able to be there with him. #Quote by Lloyd Banks
Shame quotes by David Nichollss
#73. He rests his head against the mirror and exhales. In the years he was with Emma he sometimes wondered idly what it would be like if she weren't around; not in a morbid way, just pragmatically, speculatively, because don't all lovers do this? Wonder how he would be without her? Now the answer is in the mirror. Loss has endowed him stupid and banal. Without her he is without merit or virtue or purpose a shabby, lonely, middle aged drunk, poisoned with regret and shame. #Quote by David Nichollss
Shame quotes by Rasmenia Massoud
#74. Lucius didn't believe in werewolves. He said that people were too horrible for any other monsters to exist, which he thought was a shame. #Quote by Rasmenia Massoud
Shame quotes by John A. Walker
#75. She [Jo Spence] appeared in a photograph, taken for a series entitled Class Shame, holding a placard on which was written: 'Middle class values make me sick'. #Quote by John A. Walker
Shame quotes by Victor Davis Hanson
#76. It is rather the nature of America - our freewheeling, outspoken, prosperous, liberty-loving citizens extend equality to women, homosexuals, minorities, and almost anyone who comes to our shores, and thereby create desire and with it shame for that desire. Indeed, it is worse still than that: Precisely because we worry publicly that we are insensitive, our enemies scoff privately that we in fact are too sensitive - what we think is liberality and magnanimity they see as license and decadence. If we don't have confidence in who we are, why should they? #Quote by Victor Davis Hanson
Shame quotes by James Joyce
#77. She was alone and still, gazing out to sea; and when she felt his presence and the worship of his eyes her eyes turned to him in quiet sufferance of his gaze, without shame or wantonness. #Quote by James Joyce
Shame quotes by Elizabeth Howell
#78. having DID in itself creates intense shame. A person continually has to deal with not remembering what one has said or done. Thus, the person with DID must be quick with inferences and cover-ups. Unfortunately, this often convinces her, as well as others, that she is a liar. #Quote by Elizabeth Howell
Shame quotes by Elton John
#79. How dare you refer to my beautiful children as 'synthetic'. And shame on you for wagging your judgemental little fingers at IVF - a miracle that has allowed legions of loving people, both straight and gay, to fulfill their dream of having children, your archaic thinking is out of step with the times, just like your fashions. I shall never wear Dolce and Gabbana ever again. #Quote by Elton John
Shame quotes by Gautama Buddha
#80. When one feels no shame in telling a deliberate lie, there is no evil, I tell you, he will not do. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Shame quotes by Epictetus
#81. As for us, we behave like a herd of deer. When they flee from the huntsman's feathers in affright, which way do they turn? What haven of safety do they make for? Why, they rush upon the nets! And thus they perish by confounding what they should fear with that wherein no danger lies. . . . Not death or pain is to be feared, but the fear of death or pain. Well said the poet therefore: -

Death has no terror; only a Death of shame! #Quote by Epictetus
Shame quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#82. Why don't you just kill me?"
"That, my dear, would be a waste." He steps forward and I realize his hands are sheathed in white leather gloves. He tips my chin up with one finger. "Besides, it'd be a shame to lose such a pretty face. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Shame quotes by Cinda Williams Chima
#83. He forgot everything: the sorcerer upstairs, the mission, his own imperfection, and the shame and bitterness that came with it. #Quote by Cinda Williams Chima
Shame quotes by Samuel Johnson
#84. Shame arises from the fear of men, conscience from the fear of God. #Quote by Samuel Johnson
Shame quotes by Bo Ryan
#85. It's just a shame that it had to be played that way. #Quote by Bo Ryan
Shame quotes by Robert H. Schuller
#86. The classical error of historical Christianity is that we have never started with the value of the person. Rather, we have started from the 'unworthiness of the sinner,' and that starting point has set the stage for the glorification of human shame in Christian theology. #Quote by Robert H. Schuller
Shame quotes by Amit Ray
#87. Divinity is recognizing that you're already successful, and you are on the way to achieve your highest potential. Divinity is keeping the objectives of the soul clear, beyond the guilt, shame and embarrassment of life. #Quote by Amit Ray
Shame quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#88. I was young at Myna, that first time. When had the change come? He had retreated to here, to Collegium, to spin his awkward webs of intrigue and to lecture at the College. Then, years on, the call had come for action. He had gone to that chest in which he stored his youth and found that, like some armour long unworn, it had rusted away.
He tried to tell himself that this was not like the grumbling of any other man who finds the prime of his life behind him. I need my youth and strength now, as never before. A shame that one could no husband time until one needed it. All his thoughts rang hollow. He was past his best and that was the thorn that would not be plucked from his side. He was no different from any tradesman or scholar who, during a life of indolence, pauses partway up the stairs to think, This was not so hard, yesterday. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Shame quotes by J'son M. Lee
#89. Shame is the demon that keeps many of us trapped in our pain; healing comes when we gain the courage to confront our demon(s). #Quote by J'son M. Lee
Shame quotes by Lily Collins
#90. Love will find you again. And you can never, ever change yourself for anyone or change yourself to fix the relationship. So if it isn't healthy say good-bye. #Quote by Lily Collins
Shame quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
#91. What do you regard as most humane? To spare someone shame. #Quote by Friedrich Nietzsche
Shame quotes by Remy De Gourmont
#92. Extraordinarily excessive sensuality it may be .. but it all comes down to the same thing in the end, and one means is surely as good as another, since the end obtained is always the same. In any case the exceptional, endlessly repeated, is no different than the banal; and unceasing recapitulation can add nothing, in the end, to the sum of experience. I am weary and hopeless three times the dupe. Why have you trained me in the shame of abominable sins? #Quote by Remy De Gourmont
Shame quotes by Alan Moore
#93. Rather than being able to have a healthy relationship with our own sexual imagination, we're driven into some dark corners by shame and embarrassment and guilt, and those dark corners breed all sorts of monsters. #Quote by Alan Moore
Shame quotes by Jase Robertson
#94. I remember meeting a man who gave sex seminars to students at various college campuses. To get people to come he passed out flyers that were entitled "How to Have the Best Sex on Earth." Of course, his lecture attracted a huge turnout. He spoke about sex between two virgins on their wedding night being disease-free, guilt-free, comparison-free, and shame-free, as well as being pleasing to God. It is the best sex you can have on earth. He explained that many people fall short and that is why Jesus died on a cross. In Christ anyone can start over. As 1 Corinthians 6:9--11 says: "The sexually immoral…will [not] inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed…sanctified…[and] justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." The forgiveness found in Christ doesn't take away from the fact that God's way is always the best way for a marriage and our world. Hebrews 13:4 says: "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure." That is exactly what Missy and I did. #Quote by Jase Robertson
Shame quotes by Megan McCafferty
#95. Oh, yeah,' she said. 'He likes your brain, J.D., but he ain't attracted to you, which is a cryin' shame, if you don't mind me sayin' so.'
No. How could I mind the truth? It was a cryin' shame, and my tears almost dripped right into my stuffing. #Quote by Megan McCafferty
Shame quotes by James Joyce
#96. You bore me away, framed me in oak and tinsel, set me above your marriage couch. Unseen, one summer eve, you kissed me in four places. And with loving pencil you shaded my eyes, my bosom and my shame. #Quote by James Joyce
Shame quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#97. That was enough to make her blush with shame for the mere fact that Las Vegas existed. There #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Shame quotes by John Bradshaw
#98. High school is the time of puberty. And puberty is a time of intense exposure and vulnerability. Whatever toxic shame a person carries from childhood will be tested in high school. Often teenage groups look for a scapegoat, someone everyone can dump and project their shame onto. This was Arnold's fate. He was viciously shamed by his female peer group. This accounted for his problem with women. #Quote by John Bradshaw
Shame quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#99. It is often said that Europeans learned religious intolerance from the Old Testament. Then how did we happen to skip over the parts where the laws protect and provide for the poor, and where oppression of them is most fiercely forbidden? It is surely dishonest to suggest we learned anything at all from the Torah, if we have not learned anything good from it. Better to say our vices are our own than to try to exculpate ourselves by implying that our attention strayed during the humane and visionary passages. The law of Moses puts liberation theology to shame in its passionate loyalty to the poor. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Shame quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#100. You'll have to be careful, then," he said softly, smiling. "It would be a shame for some intelligent comment to slip out at the wrong moment. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Shame quotes by Johannes Kepler
#101. Temporis filia veritas; cui me obstetricari non pudet.
Truth is the daughter of time, and I feel no shame in being her midwife. #Quote by Johannes Kepler
Shame quotes by Nate Ruess
#102. We grew up listening to alternative music from the '90s, and there was no shame in being on a major label and still making the music you wanted to make. I feel like rap rock came around and drew a line in the sand, and everybody that was like me ran away from that and started making indie-rock. #Quote by Nate Ruess
Shame quotes by Mark Batterson
#103. Self-consciousness isn't just A curse. It is part of THE curse. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Shame quotes by Gav Thorpe
#104. For the first and the last time in his life, Corax cried. He cried not for the loss of life, though it was great.
He cried not for the degradation that has been heaped upon his dead warrior, though it was obscene.
He cried for all Astartes, for the shame that Horus has brought upon them. They had been the Emperor's trusted sword, and they had betrayed him. It mattered not that Corax himself had remained loyal, he was Astartes and the shame of one was the shame of all.
'Will they ever trust us again?'
A tear rolled down his cheek and dropped onto the fallen Raven Guard. Should they trust us, was the next question. #Quote by Gav Thorpe
Shame quotes by Helene Cixous
#105. I wished that that woman would write and proclaim this unique empire so that other women, other unacknowledged sovereigns, might exclaim: I, too, overflow; my desires have invented new desires, my body knows unheard-of songs. Time and again I, too, have felt so full of luminous torrents that I could burst-burst with forms much more beautiful than those which are put up in frames and sold for a stinking fortune. And I, too, said nothing, showed nothing; I didn't open my
mouth, I didn't repaint my half of the world. I was ashamed. I was afraid, and I swallowed my shame and my fear. I said to myself: You are
mad! #Quote by Helene Cixous
Shame quotes by Ted Nugent
#106. I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America, #Quote by Ted Nugent
Shame quotes by Abigail Barnette
#107. Never be timid about your own pleasure. Don't be ashamed to come. #Quote by Abigail Barnette
Shame quotes by Charles Maurice De Talleyrand
#108. The bold defiance of a woman is the certain sign of her shame, - when she has once ceased to blush, it is because she has too much to blush for. #Quote by Charles Maurice De Talleyrand
Shame quotes by Vachel Lindsay
#109. Except the Christ be born again tonight
In dreams of all men, saints and sons of shame,
The world will never see his kingdom bright.
#Quote by Vachel Lindsay
Shame quotes by Susan Jacoby
#110. I have received many touching letters and emails from people who live in the most religious parts of the country, in places like rural Texas, saying it is so good to see someone be able to say I am an atheist without shame. #Quote by Susan Jacoby
Shame quotes by Jason Segel
#111. For some reason, I was born without a sense of embarrassment or shame. #Quote by Jason Segel
Shame quotes by Wendy J. Mahill
#112. Shame evokes anxiety about what will happen if someone really knows is, but, because it is impossible to for anxiety and anger to be felt simultaneously, we can dream our anxiety by employing anger or rage in the form of contempt... Contempt, because it feels more powerful has always helped us feel safer and more powerful than the anxiety we feel when we experience shame. [3] #Quote by Wendy J. Mahill
Shame quotes by Devon Monk
#113. Bonnie laughed, and I mean she threw her head back and cackled up into the rain.
They say it only takes a tablespoon of water to drown a person. I was hoping they were right. But Bonnie didn't drown, which was an amazing shame considering the size of her mouth. #Quote by Devon Monk
Shame quotes by Miranda Hart
#114. People are obviously going to mention what I look like, but it's a shame it has to be a key part. I can't just be Miranda. #Quote by Miranda Hart
Shame quotes by Peter Hedges
#115. A man who works all day, every day and loves each apple he uncrates, who cherishes each can of soup - a man like that surely puts us all to shame. #Quote by Peter Hedges
Shame quotes by Traci Lords
#116. I have a lot of
I struggle with a lot of shame over my past. There have been times when I've been incredibly embarrassed about the things that happened to me. I don't think that there is one human being in this world that would wish, you know, to be injured as a kid the way
in ways that I was. #Quote by Traci Lords
Shame quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#117. Plants do everything animals do, but slowly. They migrate, communicate, deceive, stalk their food and, with an ostentation of styles and perfumes to put the animal kingdom to shame, they make love. It's just that catching them in flagrante delicto might require time-lapse photography. #Quote by Barbara Kingsolver
Shame quotes by Brene Brown
#118. In Jungian circles, shame is often referred to as the swampland of the soul. I'm not suggesting that we wade out into the swamp and set up camp. I've done that and I can tell you that the swampland of the soul is an important place to visit, but you would not want to live there. What I'm proposing is that we learn how to wade through it. We need to see that standing on the shore and catastrophisizing about what could happen if we talked honestly about our fears is actually more painful than grabbing the hand of a trusted companion and crossing the swamp. And, most important, we need to learn why constantly trying to maintain our footing on the shifting shore as we gaze across to the other side of the swamp - where our worthiness waits for us - is much harder work than trudging across. #Quote by Brene Brown
Shame quotes by Joanne McClean
#119. Why are you trying to be something you're not?"
I shrugged, "People change, get used to it Alex. It's not like you know me anyway."
He nodded, "You've got that right. I just hope you haven't lost yourself in the process ... it would be a real shame if you couldn't find your way back."
I frowned at him, "And what the hell is that supposed to mean Alex?"
He studied my eyes intently, "I just don't want you to forget who you truly are ... because I liked that girl. #Quote by Joanne McClean
Shame quotes by Miguel Ruiz
#120. 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
Shame quotes by Amanda Palmer
#121. Those who can ask without shame are viewing themselves in collaboration with - rather than in competition with - the world. #Quote by Amanda Palmer
Shame quotes by Mark Lawrence
#122. It's shame that gets us killed. Shame is the anchor, the heaviest burden to carry from the battlefield. Fortunately shame was an affliction I'd never suffered from. #Quote by Mark Lawrence
Shame quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#123. What we need here, folks, is a really big chicken."
She scowled at his bizarre comment and the fact that his drawl had actually gotten deeper as he spoke. "What are you? Hungry? Now?"
He laughed at her irritation. "Nah. They love to hunt and kill scorpions. Damn shame I don't have a flock or two million of them right about now. Who knew? I just hope those damn things aren't chowing down on my Squire. #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Shame quotes by Leslie Jordan
#124. When I was writing the book, I thought "Who wants to hear another story about some actor who lost his way?" But my story is a little unique in that I realized when I was 14 years old that I was different. I think a lot of gay people use drugs and alcohol to quell that fear and shame - especially people of my age. #Quote by Leslie Jordan
Shame quotes by Paloma Faith
#125. Anything that's on television as often as someone on 'The X Factor' is what's successful. That doesn't mean that I condone that or think that it's right. To be honest, I'd be the first to say I think it's a shame. But if that's the way it is then that's the way it is. #Quote by Paloma Faith
Shame quotes by Moira Young
#126. Don't worry, says Ike, I didn't do yer pretty face no harm. I should of though. After what you done to me.
He glares at Jack an Jack actually looks shame-faced. Ike jabs him in the chest with a big meaty finger.
You left me, you sonofabitch, he says, hangin upside down, stark naked, with all them women in their

Shame quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld

Shame quotes by Emil Cioran

Shame quotes by Charlotte Bronte
#131. I know how soon youth would fade and bloom perish, if, in the cup of bliss offered, but one dreg of shame, or one flavour of remorse were detected; and I do not want sacrifice, sorrow, dissolution - such is not my taste. I wish to foster, not to blight - to earn gratitude, not to wring tears of blood - no, nor of brine: my harvest must be in smiles, in endearments, in sweet. #Quote by Charlotte Bronte
Shame quotes by Terry Pratchett
#132. This is so inconvenient. But there is no doubt." She paused for a moment and said: "I will die the day after tomorrow. On Friday, just before half past six in the morning." It was an impressive statement, and did not deserve this reply: "Oh, that's a shame, tae be missin' the weekend like that," said Rob Anybody. #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Shame quotes by Katie Kiesler
#133. I've realized, though, we can either choose to be vulnerable or have moments of vulnerability sneak up on us. Like when you're happily alone, strutting around your house naked, but then hear a sound. Suddenly, the comfort and confidence you felt in your own skin evaporates. You run to the nearest room, hurrying to shut the door. Then you wait, and listen quietly for an opportunity to make an escape. Your mind races trying to think of an excuse for your current nude state. You're embarrassed.
But, if you live your life listening for the Lord, obeying when He asks you to be vulnerable, you never have to worry about being walked in on. Your soul is ready to be seen. And, He won't allow your life to be marked by shame or embarrassment. #Quote by Katie Kiesler
Shame quotes by Rachel Hartman
#134. He looked up at the reddening sky and said with a self-deprecating laugh, "You put me to shame, Seraphina. Your bravery always has."
"It's not bravery; it's bullheaded bumbling."
He shook his head, staring off into the middle distance. "I know courage when I see it, and when I lack it. #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Shame quotes by Etaf Rum
#135. She couldn't believe how quickly time had passed, that she had gotten old. Old - she shook the thought away. It was not the thought of being old that bothered her rather the realization of what her life had amounted to. What a shame, she thought now as she waited for sleep to come... #Quote by Etaf Rum

Shame quotes by Susan Sontag
#138. Most men experience getting older with regret, apprehension. But most women experience it even more painfully: with shame. Aging is a man's destiny, something that must happen because he is a human being. For a woman, aging is not only her destiny ... it is also her vulnerability. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Shame quotes by Andrea Cremer
#139. It's not babysitting," Adne protested. "I haven't had to spank you once, which is a shame. #Quote by Andrea Cremer
Shame quotes by Devon Monk
#140. Shame wasn't breathing hard, didn't even seem like he'd broken a sweat. He did, however, shove his hands in the pockets of his coat and hunch up his shoulders like he was enduring a hailstorm. I gave him a questioning look. "It's just ... babies." He said it like most people say snakes or spiders or tax collectors. I had no idea what his problem was. "You're afraid of babies?" "Shut up. #Quote by Devon Monk
Shame quotes by Nalini Priyadarshni

Shame quotes by Paul Klee
#142. Beauty is as relative as light and dark. Thus, there exists no beautiful woman, none at all, because you are never certain that a still far more beautiful woman will not appear and completely shame the supposed beauty of the first. #Quote by Paul Klee

Shame quotes by Fabio Novembre

Shame quotes by Paul Tough
#149. Wealthy parents today, she argues, are more likely than others to be emotionally distant from their children while at the same time insisting on high levels of achievement, a potentially toxic blend of influences that can create "intense feelings of shame and hopelessness" in affluent children. #Quote by Paul Tough
Shame quotes by Meng Jin
#150. I had never asked my mother about my father. She had not forbidden it; even if I'd had a general feeling that such questions were discouraged, I had no memory of my mother saying, Be quiet, never speak of it again. Had I been a coward? Indifferent, too absorbed in the petty present to care? Or perhaps I'd believed there'd be endless time for the confusions my knowledge might bring. However it came to pass, at a certain point it became too late to ask such questions - too late because it seemed I should already know their answers, and so an admission of ignorance would be an admission of great carelessness - and then (from shame? from sloth?) I turned father into a concept, an emptiness so abstract it was as good as dead. #Quote by Meng Jin
Shame quotes by J.M. Coetzee
#151. I truly believe I am not afraid of death. What I shrink from, I believe, is the shame of dying as stupid and befuddled as I am. #Quote by J.M. Coetzee
Shame quotes by Randy Alcorn
#152. By eroding their sense of shame we've made immorality normal, not only in the world but also in the forbidden squadron.
...their new Christian friends recommended some of the movies Fletcher had been wondering if he should now avoid. I was delighted one of them said, "This is a great movie--only one sex scene, and the f-word's only used a few times."
'Titanic' is one of my favorites. How many Christian young people have watched it in their own homes? Think of it, Squaltaint. Suppose someone in the youth group said to the boys, 'There's an attractive girl down the street. Let's get together and go look through her window and watch her undress and lay back on a couch and pose naked from the waist up. Then this girl and her boyfriend will get in a car and have sex--let's get as close as we can and listen to them and watch the windows steam up.'
The strategy would never work. They'd know immediately it was wrong. But you can get them to do exactly the same thing by using a television instead of a window. That's all is takes! Think of it, Squaltaint. Every day Christians across the country, including many squadron leaders, watch women and men undress and commit acts of fornication and adultery the Enemy calls an abomination.
We've made them a bunch of voyeurs! Churches full of peeping toms. #Quote by Randy Alcorn

Shame quotes by K. Kiker
#154. Each of us is allowed to revel in our own desires, no matter how dark or depraved they may seem; for we are the only ones that know what lies within our own imagination. Inside these erotic visions there is no shame -- only pleasure. It is a chance to dip a toe into something that may have only ever seemed a fleeting thought. #Quote by K. Kiker
Shame quotes by Melissa Marr
#155. Maybe the girl would get strong enough to withstand an ink exchange with one of the chosen faeries. If not, he could always give her to one of the weaker fey. It seemed a shame to waste a lovely broken toy. #Quote by Melissa Marr

Shame quotes by Salman Rushdie

Shame quotes by Desmond Tutu
#160. When I feel ashamed, it means I feel there isn't just something wrong with what I've done, there is something wrong with who I am. Shame is often a hidden emotion and it can be paralyzing in its power. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Shame quotes by Pierre Bayard
#161. To speak without shame about books we haven't read, we would thus do well to free ourselves of the oppressive image of cultural literacy without gaps, as transmitted and imposed by family and school, for we can strive toward this image for a lifetime without ever managing to coincide with it. #Quote by Pierre Bayard

Shame quotes by Zhuangzi
#163. Goods and possessions are no gain in his eyes. He stays far from wealth and honor. Long life is no ground for joy, nor early death for sorrow. Success is not for him to be pround of, failure is no shame. Had he all the world's power he would not hold it as his own. If he conquered everything he would not take it to himself. His glory is in knowing that all things come together in One and life and death are equal. #Quote by Zhuangzi
Shame quotes by Jock Brown

Shame quotes by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
#165. I could not but wonder at the queen's unprecedented civility, until I realized with a flush of shame that it was my own improved behavior that motivated hers. So it is that we in life determine our own treatment. #Quote by Catherine Gilbert Murdock
Shame quotes by Sean Penn
#166. There is no shame in my saying that we all want to be loved by someone. As I look back over my life in romance, I don't feel I've ever had that. #Quote by Sean Penn
Shame quotes by Sarah Sundin
#167. The shame of her youth screamed at her from every brick, but Jesus silenced it. She had dreaded this moment for weeks, but God was so powerful. In the very place of her worst sin and deepest pain his peace billowed through her soul. #Quote by Sarah Sundin
Shame quotes by David Richo
#168. 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
Shame quotes by Jefferson Bethke
#169. He actually does the opposite. He says, "If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it."1 If Jesus wanted to grow a church, didn't he know telling people they need to daily pick up an instrument of torture, death, and shame wasn't the way to do it? Jesus opposed the pharisaical legalism of his time, but he also opposed the watered-down, flimsy, cultural religion. He was essentially saying, "I know my miracles are awesome. I know I have immense power. But don't follow me for the wrong reason. The cost is high. The road to follow me is tough, it's painful, it hurts, and you might even face death, but I promise there is joy on the other side. Do you want in? #Quote by Jefferson Bethke
Shame quotes by Victor Hugo
#170. It is a shame that I am ignorant, otherwise I would quote to you a mass of things; but I know nothing. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Shame quotes by Paul Goodman
#171. We define boredom as the pain a person feels when he's doing nothing or something irrelevant, instead of something he wants to do but won't, can't, or doesn't dare. Boredom is acute when he knows the other thing and inhibits his action, e.g., out of politeness, embarrassment, fear of punishment or shame. Boredom is chronic if he has repressed the thought of it and no longer is aware of it. A large part of stupidity is just the chronic boredom, for a person can't learn, or be intelligent about, what he's not interested in, when his repressed thoughts are elsewhere. #Quote by Paul Goodman
Shame quotes by Mary Lambert
#172. There is so much shame and guilt in our society, and I think it has deprived a lot of people from living fully. We are all facing battles ... We've all had someone who has hurt us. So let's talk about it. #Quote by Mary Lambert
Shame quotes by Shannon Tanner
#173. Shame is a destroyer of self-worth. #Quote by Shannon Tanner
Shame quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#174. I believe in humanity - not just you or Mother, but all mankind. Do I sound like a preacher or a cheap politician making a pretty speech? This is not what I intend to do ...
I believe in life, that it is sweet and that, for all its occasional bitterness, we-man, that is-are headed toward something better - fulfillment. There is much shame, however, and so much hypocrisy around us and these inhibit our fulfillment as human beings. #Quote by F. Sionil Jose
Shame quotes by Albert Camus
#175. If Nietzsche is correct, that to shame a man is to kill him, then any honest attempt at autobiography will be an act of self-destruction. #Quote by Albert Camus
Shame quotes by Andrew Wyatt
#176. We just did a bunch of songs, and there was a lot of enthusiasm for the songs that we made. We didn't feel like we had to do Miike Snow. We just did it because, I mean, I guess we felt like it would be a bit of a shame to leave it where we left it. #Quote by Andrew Wyatt
Shame quotes by George Crook
#177. We must not try to force him to take civilization immediately in its complete form, but under just laws, guaranteeing to Indians equal civil laws, the Indian question, a source of such dishonor to our country and of shame to true patriots, will soon be a thing of the past. #Quote by George Crook
Shame quotes by Anthony Venn-Brown
#178. Outing someone is like ripping a butterfly from its cocoon. You can damage them for life and rob them of THEIR life changing experience of liberation. For a successful emergence THEY have to struggle through the cocoon of fear and shame. THEN they can fly. #Quote by Anthony Venn-Brown
Shame quotes by Tsunetomo Yamamoto
#179. Victory and defeat are matters of the temporary force of circumstances. The way of avoiding shame is different. It is simply in death. #Quote by Tsunetomo Yamamoto
Shame quotes by Sarah Kay
#180. Me - I was not born with enough fuel. My anger often melts into sadness, it will just disintegrate into shame or fear, my clenched teeth release into chatter. #Quote by Sarah Kay
Shame quotes by Seth Godin
#181. Shame must be accepted to be effective. #Quote by Seth Godin
Shame quotes by Aristotle.
#182. The high-minded man is fond of conferring benefits, but it shames him to receive them. #Quote by Aristotle.
Shame quotes by Martin Jenkins
#183. When it comes to looking after all the species that are already endangered, there's such a lot to do that sometimes it might all seem to be too much, especially when there are so many other important things to worry about. But if we stop trying, the chances are that pretty soon we'll end up with a world where there are no tigers or elephants, or sawfishes or whooping cranes, or albatrosses or ground iguanas. And I think that would be a shame, don't you? #Quote by Martin Jenkins
Shame quotes by Ayn Rand
#184. Through all the darkness, through all the shame of which men are capable, the spirit of man will remain alive on this earth. It may sleep, but it will awaken. It may wear chains, but it will break through. #Quote by Ayn Rand
Shame quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#185. My humble ... I don't drink ... '
'A shame! What about a game of dice, then? Or do have some other favourite game? Dominoes? Cards?
'I don't play games,' the already weary barman responded.
'Altogether bad,' the host concluded. 'As you will, but there's something noce nice hidden in men who avoid wine, games, the society of charming women, table talk. Such people are either gravely ill or secretly hate everybody around them. True, there may be exceptions. Among persons sitting down with me at the banqueting table, there have been on occasion some extraordinary scoundrels! Chapter 18 #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Shame quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#186. Then Eomer was silent, and looked on his sister, as if pondering anew all the days of their past life together. But Aragorn said: I saw also what you saw, Eomer. Few other griefs amid the ill chances of this world have more bitterness and shame for a man's heart than to behold the love of a lady so fair and brave that cannot be returned. Sorrow and pity have followed me ever since I left her desperate in Dunharrow and rode to the Paths of the Dead; and no fear upon that way was so present as the fear for what might befall her. And yet, Eomer, I say to you that she loves you more truly than me; for you she loves and knows; but in me she loves only a shadow and a thought: a hope of glory and great deeds, and lands far from the fields of Rohan. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Shame quotes by Plato
#187. And what shall he suffer who slays him who of all men, as they say, is his own best friend? I mean the suicide, who deprives himself by violence of his appointed share of life. Not because the law of the state requires him. Nor yet under the compulsion of some painful and inevitable misfortune which has come upon him. Nor because he has had to suffer from irremediable and intolerable shame, but who from sloth or want of manliness imposes upon himself an unjust penalty. #Quote by Plato
Shame quotes by Augustine Of Hippo
#188. Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the other elements of the world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon, the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones, and so forth, and this knowledge he holds to as being certain from reason and experience. Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian, presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics; and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men. If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scri #Quote by Augustine Of Hippo
Shame quotes by Tenzing Norgay
#189. If it is a shame to be the second man on Mount Everest, then I will have to live with this shame. #Quote by Tenzing Norgay
Shame quotes by Victor Hugo
#190. To write the poem of the human conscience, were it only of a single man, were it only of the most infamous of men, would be to swallow up all epics in a superior and final epic. The conscience is the chaos of chimeras, of lusts and of temptations, the furnace of dreams, the cave of the ideas which are our shame; it is the pandemonium of sophisms, the battlefield of the passions. At certain hours, penetrate within the livid face of a human being who reflects, and look at what lies behind; look into that soul, look into that obscurity. There, beneath the external silence, there are combats of giants as in Homer, mêlées of dragons and hydras, and clouds of phantoms as in Milton, ghostly labyrinths as in Dante. What a gloom enwraps that infinite which each man bears within himself, and by which he measures in despair the desires of his will, and the actions of his life! #Quote by Victor Hugo
Shame quotes by Bell Hooks
#191. It is my deep belief that in talking about the past, in understanding the things that have happened to us we can heal and go forward. Some people believe that it is best to put the past behind you, to never speak about the events that have happened that have hurt or wounded us, and this is their way of coping - but coping is not healing. By confronting the past without shame we are free of its hold on us. #Quote by Bell Hooks
Shame quotes by Whitney Johnson
#192. We frequently applaud failure in theory, but the dirty little secret is that it makes all of us feel at least a little ashamed. #Quote by Whitney Johnson
Shame quotes by John E. Toews
#193. The gospel is the good news that God is doing a completely new thing in Jesus - demonstrating divine righteousness, making people right in relationship to God and each other, forgiving sins, liberating from the prison of Sin. Such a gospel frees from guilt - actions that break covenant with God - and overcomes shame - makes right the broken relationships that put people down and make them angry. God's salvation restores shalom. #Quote by John E. Toews
Shame quotes by M.C. Scott
#194. My lady, it is the lady empress Sextilia Augusta, mother to - ' 'She knows to whom I am mother. The entire world knows to whom I am mother. The entire world shares my shame.' The empress's voice was sharp #Quote by M.C. Scott
Shame quotes by Tucker Max
#195. If people try to judge you or shame you for doing safe, consensual things that make you happy, I can guarantee you they're bad people. #Quote by Tucker Max
Shame quotes by Donna Tartt
#196. It's a terrible thing, what we did," said Francis abruptly. "I mean, this man was not Voltaire we killed. But still. It's a shame. I feel bad about it."
"Well, of course, I do too," said Henry matter-of-factly. "But not bad enough to want to go to jail for it."
Francis snorted and poured himself another shot of whiskey and drank it straight off. "No," he said. "Not that bad. #Quote by Donna Tartt

#197. Being open about epilepsy assists in de-stigmatising the condition which should never be a source of shame. #Quote by Stuart Ross McCallum

Shame quotes by Jodie Archer
#199. They insisted that the pleasure of reading is not necessarily just about providing pleasure to the mind, but to the heart, the emotions, the body and – for those who believe in these things- the soul. The problem is that this kind of appreciation of literature has been shrouded in embarrassment and shame for a long time #Quote by Jodie Archer
Shame quotes by Antal Szerb
#200. The staying awake was a great self-sacrificaing gesture of friendship, and wonderfully in keeping with our current mood of intense friendship and religious fervour. We were all in a state of shock. We engaged in a long Dostojevskyan conversations and drank one black coffee after another. It was sort of night typical of youth, the sort you only can look back on with shame and embarassment once you've grown up. But God knows, I must have grown up already by then, because I don't feel the slightest embarassment when I think back to it, just a terrible nostalgia. #Quote by Antal Szerb
