verb

To reproach, to find fault, to criticize harshly.

I have never worked for fame or praise, and shall not feel their loss as I otherwise would. I have never for a moment lost sight of the humble life I was born to, its small environments, and the consequently little right I had to expect much of myself, and shall have the less to censure, or upbraid myself with for the failures I must see myself make.

—Clara Barton Quoted in Angel of the Battlefield by Ishbel Ross (1956)
