Blame

Heather Hanbury

There’s no point in failing and then dealing with it by pretending it didn’t happen, or blaming someone else. That would be a wasted opportunity to learn more about yourself and perhaps to identify gaps in your skills, experiences or qualifications. Once you’ve identified the learning you can then take action to make a difference.

G. K. Chesterton

…I cannot do my duty as a true modern, by cursing everybody who made me whatever I am. I am not clear about what that is; but I am pretty sure that most of it is my own fault.

St. Augustine

“The times are bad! The times are troublesome!” This is what man says. But we are our times. Let us live well and our times will be good. Such as we are, such are our times.

John Burroughs

A man can get discouraged many times but he is not a failure until he begins to blame somebody else and stops trying.

Epictetus

To accuse others for one’s own misfortunes is a sign of want of education. To accuse oneself shows that one’s education has begun. To accuse neither oneself nor others shows that one’s education is complete.
