The worst of my actions or conditions seem not so ugly unto me as I find it both ugly and base not to dare to avouch for them.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

Forgiveness is always free. But that doesn't mean that confession is always easy. Sometimes it is hard. Incredibly hard. It is painful to admit our sins and entrust ourselves to God's care.
Lutzer, Erwin W.

7.
To confess a fault freely is the next thing to being innocent of it.
Syrus, Publilius

Literary confessors are contemptible, like beggars who exhibit their sores for money, but not so contemptible as the public that buys their books.
Auden, W. H.

Wilde, Oscar

Brookner, Anita

Let the trumpet of the day of judgment sound when it will, I shall appear with this book in my hand before the Sovereign Judge, and cry with a loud voice, This is my work, there were my thoughts, and thus was I. I have freely told both the good and the bad, have hid nothing wicked, added nothing good.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

14.
If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize, at one effort, the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity is his own -- the road to immortal renown lies straight, open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little book. Its title should be simple -- a few plain words -- My Heart Laid Bare. But -- this little book must be true to its title.
Poe, Edgar Allan

15.
The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works.
Augustine, St.

16.
Open confession is good for the soul.
Proverb, Scottish

17.
Confession is good for the soul only in the sense that a tweed coat is good for dandruff -- it is a palliative rather than a remedy.
Vries, Peter De

18.
The confession of our failings is a thankless office. It savors less of sincerity or modesty than of ostentation. It seems as if we thought our weaknesses as good as other people's virtues.
Hazlitt, William

19.
Confession, alas, is the new handshake.
Rosen, Richard D.

20.
I saved a girl from being attacked last night. I controlled myself.
Dangerfield, Rodney

21.
Confess you were wrong yesterday; it will show you are wise today.
Proverb

22.
A confession has to be part of your new life.
Wittgenstein, Ludwig

23.
I don't deserve this award, but I have arthritis, and I don't deserve that, either.
Benny, Jack

24.
Confession is always weakness. The grave soul keeps its own secrets, and takes its own punishment in silence.
Dix, Dorothy

25.
It is not the criminal things that are hardest to confess, but the ridiculous and the shameful.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

26.
There are things to confess that enrich the world, and things that need not be said.
Mitchell, Joni
