I'm Sorry

"...the ever-present litany of "I'm sorry" that seasons women's writing and conversations. Women are much moer experienced at using the words "I'm sorry" than men are. These words are not a mere perfunctory bow to politeness when uttered by most women. They contain a self-depreciateing quality as if we are apologizing for our very existence - as if the answer to the "What's wrong with me" is in embedded in our femaleness."

- Patricia Lynn Reilly, Be Full of Yourself p 12
