There is man in his entirety, blaming his shoe when his foot is guilty.

Waiting for Godot
No guilt is forgotten so long as the conscience still knows of it.

Beware of Pity
Don't blame the marketing department. The buck stops with the chief executive.
One is often guilty by being too just
In law a man is guilty when he violates the rights of others. In ethics he is guilty if he only thinks of doing so
A vulgar man, in any ill that happens to him, blames others; a novice in philosophy blames himself; and a philosopher blames neither, the one nor the other
Guilt was never a rational thing; it distorts all the faculties of the human mind, it perverts them, it leaves a man no longer in the free use of his reason, it puts him into confusion
He that has a great nose, thinks everybody is speaking of it
A guilty conscience never feels secure
Every man is guilty of all the good he did not do

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
