Blame Quotes

The most obvious and condescending tell-tale sign that manipulation is taking place is that no one takes responsibility for the actions of the administration, itís always some other department who is to blame and never the people who have authority, itís always some nameless foot-soldiers, a ìfew bad apples,î when we all know that such excuses donít hold water, we know who gave the order for soldiers to engage in the abhorrent techniques of torture, we know who told subordinates in the corporation(s) to ìfudge the numbersî and ìbe creative,î we know full well who makes these decisions. President Truman said, ìThe buck stops here,î now the buck effectively floats over many people never stopping anywhere, so thereís no one to blame

Yogi Berra

When we're incomplete, we're always searching for somebody to complete us. When, after a few years or a few months of a relationship, we find that we're still unfulfilled, we blame our partners and take up with somebody more promising. This can go on and on--series polygamy--until we admit that while a partner can add sweet dimensions to our lives, we, each of us, are responsible for our own fulfillment. Nobody else can provide it for us, and to believe otherwise is to delude ourselves dangerously and to program for eventual failure every relationship we enter.

Tom Robbins

Betty Friedan

Holy shadows of the dead, Im not to blame for your cruel and bitter fate, but the accursed rivalry which brought sister nations and brother people, to fight one another.

On the contrary, I would be glad, brothers, if I had all of you standing here next to me, since we are united by the same language, the same blood and the same visions.

Alexander III

Trevor G. Baylis

Submit to Islam and be safe. Or agree to the payment of the Jizya (tax), and you and your people will be under our protection, else you will have only yourself to blame for the consequences, for I bring the men who desire death as ardently as you desire life.

al-Walid, Khalid ibn

Do not blame a man who delays in securing what are his just rights but blame lies on him who grasps the rights which do not belong to him.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

...I think there are two devices that have clearly had an enormous impact on language. One is television. I dont wish to blame television for all the faults of the world, but it has had a vulgarizing effect. The other is the telephone, because we dont write letters anymore. I dont write lettersI dont even write business letters. I call up on the telephone. When people dont write letters, language deteriorates. Do you keep a journal? I keep a workbook with stray pieces of paper with things written on them. A kind of mulch pile.

Donald Barthelme

I dont blame you for writing of me as you have. You had to believe other stories, but then I dont know if any one would believe anything good of me anyway.
