"... from whence I have since often observed, how incongruous and irrational the common temper of mankind is, viz. that they are not asham'd to sin, and yet are asham'd to repent; not asham'd of the action for which they ought justly to be esteemed fools, but are asham'd of the returning, which only can make them be esteem'd wise men."

- Daniel Defoe, Robinson Crusoe
