Excuses Quotes

Have you ever wondered how many excuses you make in a day? Excuses have been an inevitable part of human lives since time immemorial. Children make excuses when they haven't finished their homework, latecomers at office have unbelievable stories to tell their frowning bosses. Adults make excuses to themselves to cover up for unhealthy habits they have built up over the years, especially to avoid the wrath of their spouses and kids. Most of us are creative enough to cook up hundreds of excuses when needed, but instead, we should identify the reasons for such explanations and learn how to overcome them, instead of lying. These excuses are, in many cases, nothing but how we justify not pursuing what we want in life.

We all know that admitting our actions and confessing to our mistakes or stupidity is hard. Very few people tend to admit their mistakes or foolishness as it is easier to make an excuse. According to a famous saying by Alexander Pope, “An excuse is worse than a lie, for an excuse is a lie, guarded”. To motivate you, here are some famous excuses quotes for you to read and use where necessary.
