Guilt

"[F]or Nietzsche, the concept of guilt emerges when we draw a distinction between intention and action. 'I didn't mean to do that,' we will say. In this sense, guilt is a total abstraction, for it presupposes that doing is different from choosing."

- Tom Hodgkinson, How To Be Free (which I'm very much enjoying generally).
