“All the seven deadly sins are man’s true nature. To be greedy. To be hateful. To have lust. Of course, you have to control them, but if you’re made to feel guilty for being human, then you’re going to be trapped in a never-ending sin-and-repent cycle that you can’t escape from.”
We’re all sinners. We’ve all done something that made us feel guilty, made us feel like we’ve done something wrong, though we may not have been sure exactly why it was wrong. We’ve all indulged, perhaps excessively. And try as we might, we seem to be incapable of stopping. So why try?
Live a little, sin a lot.
