Neither Tressias nor the shepherd wanted to tell him the truth but his own stubbornness brought his end, they told him "I wish you had never the man you are."

Chillingworth becomes so evil and cruel in his treatment of Arthur that it would have been better for the Reverend to die. Hester, Dimmesdale, and Chillingworth are all sinners, but they each handle their guilt in different ways. Hester tries to earn forgiveness by acts of service. Dimmesdale allows his guilt to build up to the point that it kills him. Chillingworth becomes obsessed with getting revenge.
Hester soon realizes that she is in a world of her own now, and must deal with this punishment as she has brought it onto herself. Since the scarlet letter itself represents sin, it brings about her isolation from the world and shows her sin will affect her own livlihood.

Chillingworth actually knows that his actions are hurting a human being and that's where the seriousness of his sin comes in.

She is forced to wear a letter "A," meaning "adulteress," on her bosom for the rest of her life. The book focuses mainly on the sin that was committed because it effected the whole community.
