scapegoating Quotes

Three of the best book quotes about scapegoating
  1. #1
    “The elders are looking for someone to blame. We will give them many someones.”
    “You will give forth the names of people as witches? When you know you girls are not really afflicted?”
    “We will, and the elders will be glad to know that the cause of the bickering and trouble in this place lies not at their own feet but is the fault of witches living amongst us.”
  2. #2
    “We’d had three assemblies last year alone, and every time I waited for a giant spotlight to come out of the auditorium ceiling and shine on my seat.”
  3. #3
    “Perfectionist parents seem to operate under the illusion that if they can just get their children to be perfect, they will be a perfect family. They put the burden of stability on the child to avoid facing the fact that they, as parents, cannot provide it. The child fails and becomes the scapegoat for family problems. Once again, the child is saddled with the blame.”
