Thought For The Day

"It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them."

Not about other people's response to apologies, he was right about that, but about the conclusion he draws. Apologizing isn't about how people react, it's about acknowledging your own culpability.

Well, except that surely you can acknowledge culpability without saying so.
