“People were always sorry. Sorry they had done what they had done, sorry they were doing what they were doing, sorry they were going to do what they were going to do; but they still did whatever it is. The sorrow never stopped them; it just made them feel better. And so the sorrow never stopped.” — Iain Banks, Against a Dark Background

Yup. Some folks are so predictable that you can guess what they’re going to be sorry about before you know what they are sorry for.
