I like second chances. I've given people second chances. You have fall-outs with friends, and forgiveness is a great thing to have. It's not easy to forgive. I definitely don't forget, but I do forgive.
I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.
Waiting is painful. Forgetting is painful. But not knowing which to do is the worse kind of suffering.
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.
Stete Not, langsamer Tod.
