I cannot accept that you won’t go to the dance with me!
The easiest way to remember the difference in meaning between these two words is to look at their letters—accept has two c’s that are like open arms, just waiting to hug and embrace and accept whatever is being offered, whereas except has a big X just waiting to reject and exclude something (“I will take all of the cookies except that one with the bite taken out of it”).
