An apology for the Devil: It must be remembered that we have only heard one side of the case. God has written all the books.

Samuel Butler

A stiff apology is a second insult. The injured party does not want to be compensated because he has been wronged; he wants to be healed because he has been hurt.

G. K. Chesterton

Never complain and never explain.

Benjamin Disraeli

Money, which represents the prose of life, and which is hardly spoken of in parlors without an apology, is, in its effects and laws, as beautiful as roses.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Never explain - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe it anyhow.

Elbert Hubbard

Several excuses are always less convincing than one.

Aldous Huxley

If God doesn't destroy Hollywood Boulevard, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology.

Jay Leno

In her face excuse came prologue, and apology too prompt.

John Milton

An apology is a good way to have the last word.


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.

P. G. Wodehouse
