What is blamed?


Blame is the act of censuring, holding responsible, making negative statements about an individual or group that their action or actions are socially or morally irresponsible, the opposite of praise. When someone is morally responsible for doing something wrong their action is blameworthy. By contrast, when someone is morally responsible for doing something right, we may say that his or her action is praiseworthy. There are other senses of praise and blame that are not ethically relevant. One may praise someone's good dress sense, and blame the weather for a crop failure.

Famous quotes containing the word blamed:

    I certainly know that if the war fails, the administration fails, and that I will be blamed for it, whether I deserve it or not. And I ought to be blamed, if I could do better. You think I could do better; therefore you blame me already. I think I could not do better; therefore I blame you for blaming me.
    Abraham Lincoln (1809–1865)

    Samuel Johnson (1709–1784)

    Some may have blamed you that you took away
    The verses that could move them on the day

    With lightning, you went from me....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
