Shame Shame - Go Away

A  L  O  H  A !
" The books 
that the world calls 
are books that 
show the world 
its own shame. "

Oscar Wilde 

" What do you regard 

as most humane? 

To spare someone 

shame. "

Friedrich Nietzsche 

"The only shame is to have none."

Blaise Pascal

" It is the false shame 

of fools 

to try to conceal 


that have not 

healed. "



Shame is a lousy teacher. 

All you remember

is the humiliation;


any other learning

in the life and heart

of the learner.

What shame do you still carry?

That is a worthwhile question.

You may not wish to share it

but self - honesty

is the road to Your 

Freedom; And Power.

I don't think we can go through life without doing something we regret. It is part of the learning experience and causes introspection, and hopefully it teaches us to be kinder. Have a wonderful day Cloudia :)

Ditto what Denise said Cloudia..but also I really hate to see young people or anyone being humiliated.

Love the burning sunset colors. The buildings are holding up the cloud shelf in your next photo. I knew plants were waterproof, but those big drops are amazing. Must be cautious not to tease people if it turns into shame. I don't think I do that....DrumMajor

What wonderful thoughts! And you're so right, shame does make a bad teacher.

Cloudia said...

You brave people, touching this topic! You each have my respect and happy thanks :-)


I've definitely felt shame and regret over some decisions I've made - it bothered me more when I was younger, I think. Now I feel like it helped me learn (just a wee) bit more about myself.

You have captured another glorious sky - thank you.
Shame is unpleasant - but I have learnt from it, so will keep it. If I knew where my guilt button was I would disconnect that one though...
