Responsibility Quotes – being responsible for our own deed

responsibility quotes

Responsibility Quotes are wake up calls to the responsibility dodgers. On earth hardly you will find people who will eagerly take responsibility for some work they undertook and failed to execute.

You will meet people who want to showcase their success to the entire world but for their failures, they try to find some scapegoat always.

There are many people who are running to grab credits of works someone did well or a group of people collectively did with success.

These responsibility quotes tell us to be responsible for our decisions and work. Instead of stealing credits and blaming others now and then, we should mend our ways. We should appreciate others for their good work and at the same time, we have to be responsible for all the works we do.

Responsibility Quotes


“Take time to accept responsibility. Your life is exactly that – it’s your life. It is created by you. You are constantly making choices, constantly creating new experiences.

# Responsibility Quotes
“All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and
regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is
to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your
unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something
by blaming him, but you won’t succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making
you unhappy.” – Wayne Dyer, Psychotherapist, Author and Speaker

Few things help an individual more than to place responsibility upon him, and to let him know you trust him.” – Booker T. Washington
