Day 2985: Confession Time!

Because it’s confession time, here are some quotes about confession:

The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works.

St. Augustine

People seem not to see that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Art is always and everywhere the secret confession, and at the same time the immortal movement of its time.

Karl Marx

Confessions of errors is like a broom which sweeps away the dirt and leaves the surface brighter and cleaner. I feel stronger for confession.

Mahatma Gandhi

A confession has to be part of your new life.

Ludwig Wittgenstein

Acting is a form of confession.

Tallulah Bankhead

Nobody likes to be found out, not even one who has made ruthless confession a part of his profession. Any autobiographer, therefore, at least between the lines, spars with his reader and potential judge.

Erik Erikson

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.

Peter DeVries

Between lovers a little confession is a dangerous thing.

Helen Rowland

My whole act is a confession.

Shelly Berman

Psychoanalysis is the confession without without absolution.

Germaine Greer

The end of confession is to tell the truth to and for oneself.

J. M. Coetzee

I have a confession to make — I am very fond of junk food.

Siddharth Shukla

You know, I’ve got a confession to make myself. I’m not really a priest, I’ve just got my shirt on backwards.

Harry Styles

Confession Time! Whenever I present quotes, I arrange them by the birthdate of the person I’m quoting.

Yesterday I declared “Confession Time!” on Twitter:

Confession Time! Here and now, I can’t include any other images and I don’t know if I can publish this blog post. WordPress keeps confessing, “You are probably offline” although I don’t see how that is true. I confess that I can’t upload anything from my laptop or my phone and I confess this has never happened before in all my years of daily blogging.

Confession time! I wanted to write a quick blog post this morning so I could watch a special presentation about the musical “Rent.” Oh well.

Confession Time! No photos doesn’t prevent my from quoting the Daily Bitch Calendar for today: “Why is being alive so expensive? I’m not even having a good time!”

Since it is confession time, are there any confessions you’d like to make in the comments section, below?

It’s always gratitude time, so thanks to all the people I quoted, above, and thanks to YOU.

    I keep procrastinating my “diet”.

  2. I’m avoiding the scale.

  3. By the way, did you give Dolly Parton your words to Vaccine? She sang part of it yesterday on national TV.

    • I did not but it’s just more proof that great minds think alike. I confess that I can be immodest at times.

  4. I think this is where I confess that I have a tendency to deflect questions but instead I just read a short essay by Stephen Fry in which he talked about how he’d started wearing leather jackets, saying, “I have never, ever in all my born daze even considered myself to be anything remotely resembling a simulacrum of a thought if a shade of an approximation of a suspicion of a leather jacket sort of person.”
    I love that and I also confess I’m a little envious of Fry’s ability to turn a phrase.

  5. I confess to taking 32 cents from Hillman Bailey III’s desk in first grade and buying candy with my loot. I feel so much better at last. if Hillman Bailey III is reading this, I will buy you a lollipop in your choice of flavors, offer this confession as my apology, and ask for your forgiveness.

  6. I will say that I am a morning late to this post but still feel good about leaving a comment, Ann.

  7. These are great quotes, I confess.

  8. My confession ….. I’ve been sidetracked this week … and have an adverse reaction to Twitter. Sorry I can’t read your posts with tweets. 🥺
