How many times do we pay for one mistake? The answer is thousands of times. The human
is the only animal on earth that pays a thousand times for the same mistake. The rest of the
animals pay once for every mistake they make. But not us. We have a powerful memory. We
make a mistake, we judge ourselves, we find ourselves guilty, and we punish ourselves. If
justice exists, then that was enough; we don't need to do it again. But every time we
remember, we judge ourselves again, we are guilty again, and we punish ourselves again, and
again, and again.
Don Miguel Ruiz
