Famous quotes containing the word shame:

    False shame accompanies a man that is poor, shame that either harms a man greatly or profits him; shame is with poverty, but confidence with wealth.
    Hesiod (c. 8th century B.C.)

    The secret thoughts of a man run over all things, holy, profane, clean, obscene, grave, and light, without shame or blame.
    Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679)

    The sickness of our times for me has been just this damn thing that everything has been getting smaller and smaller and less and less important, that the romantic spirit has dried up, that there is no shame today.... We’re all getting so mean and small and petty and ridiculous, and we all live under the threat of extermination.
    Norman Mailer (b. 1923)
