LUXURY IN SELF-REPROACH.

“He covered page after page with wild words of sorrow, and wilder words of pain. There is a luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution. When Dorian Gray had finished the letter, he felt that he had been forgiven.”

– The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
