23 Blame Quotes

Blame quotes speak directly to the fruitlessness of casting aspirations unto others rather than taking responsibility for one's actions or behaviors. To cast others into the role of the blameworthy is to refuse to look towards a resolution of the issue, problem or circumstance. As well, while a person may be in a period of time when all circumstances or attempts to move forward seem blocked, it is only when that person gives up does and blames everyone else around for his/her shortcomings that failure rests squarely upon their shoulders.

The issues and circumstances that we all face have no power in our lives unless we give them the power to control our thoughts and actions. Move forward in life refusing to shower blame onto others; instead, take action, any action to travel through and beyond that which seems to hamper forward motion. Let these blame quotes and sayings remind you that placing blame onto another does not help resolve a situation.
