Repentance.  Never allow repentance free play, but say at once to yourself, "That would be adding a second piece of folly to the first”.  If you have worked evil, you must bethink yourself of doing good.  If you are punished for your actions, submit to the punishment with the feeling that by this very submission you are somehow doing good, in that you are deterring others from falling into the same error.  Every malefactor who is punished has a right to consider himself a benefactor to mankind.
