Ignominious on my mind

We have heard of earworms. Songs that stay in one’s head on repeat. Sometimes that’s good, other times not so much. Then there are times I have a word on my mind. It just comes up and out. It shouts till I pay attention. Words, words, words. Or rather, a word.

This week ignominious and straight up ignominy kept flaring up. I had certain people’s faces that popped up as well. It’s not an easy word. Nor is it commonly used. But there it was and here it is.

For what’s it’s worth, here are a few quotes that caught my ear and eye.

The basis of shame is not some personal mistake of ours, but the ignominy, the humiliation we feel that we must be what we are without any choice in the matter, and that this humiliation is seen by everyone.

Milan Kundera

They who load us with insults and ignominies give us the means of acquiring treasures more precious than any that man can gain in this life.

Ignatius of Loyola

One’s duty is to feel what is great, cherish the beautiful, and to not accept the conventions of society with the ignominy that it imposes upon us.

Gustave Flaubert
