I was playing around on the internet reading stuff and found this quote, which stopped me in my tracks and made me think, "Wow, so true."
“An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie, for an excuse is a lie guarded.” - John Paul the Great
I need to remember this quote to tell to my brother, who is constantly full of excuses for not doing work, for being off task, for forgetting stuff, etc. I worry that he's not taking responsibility for his actions, and his sense of entitlement is extremely overinflated. Anyway...this quote made me think of him. Maybe he'll listen to it, as long as I don't tell him it's from a pope! *eyeroll*
