"There are plenty of recommendations on how to get out of trouble cheaply and fast. Most of them come down to this: Deny your responsibility"

- Lyndon B. Johnson

About this Quote

This quote by Lyndon B. Johnson is a caution versus taking the simple escape of tight spots. He is recommending that it is appealing to reject duty for our actions in order to avoid the consequences, but this is not the right way to set about it. Rather, he is advocating for taking duty for our actions and facing the consequences head-on. He is likewise suggesting that there are other methods to leave trouble without resorting to rejection, such as discovering a method to make amends or discovering a way to make the scenario better. Eventually, Johnson is advocating for taking obligation for our actions and dealing with the consequences, rather than trying to avoid them.
