He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.
Bad excuses are worse than none.
He who excuses himself accuses himself.
Difficulty is the excuse history never accepts.
Edward R. Murrow
We have forty million reasons for failure, but not a single excuse.
Excuses are the nails used to build a house of failure.
If you don't want to do something, one excuse is as good as another.
No one ever excused his way to success.
Dave Del Dotto
For many people, an excuse is better than an achievement because an achievement,no matter how great, leaves you having to prove yourself again in the future but anexcuse can last for life.
Sometimes, people use age as a convenient excuse. 'I'm to old too start somethingnew', or, 'I couldn't learn that at my age.' Other people, though, go on to acheivetheir greatest accomplishments in life in later years.
An excuse is worse and more terrible than a lie; for an excuse is a lie guarded.
