The Three Sorrys

First you feel sorry
Second you say you're sorry
Third you do something to show you're sorry.

The fourth sorry is not needing or expecting the apology to begin with.

often true, although I think this is from the standpoint of the transgressor, rather than the transgressed.

And I do think there are time when an apology should be expected, but it's meaningless if it's done just to get the sorry out of the way and done with.
