Guilt Quotes

You are told not to eat cookies, however soon, the pangs of hunger kick in and you give in. You head straight to the cookie jar, the jar that you are not supposed to be anywhere close to. You open the jar, take out a cookie, eat it and then you take out another cookie and eat it too. Before you know it, the cookies are all done with and the jar is empty. Not only have you eaten the cookies, you have also somehow managed to successfully wipe clean the cookie jar. The guilt begins to set in and you don’t like the way you feel about it.
