GOOD, to forgive;
Best, to forget!
Living, we fret;
Dying, we live.
Fretless and free,
Soul, clap thy pinion!
Earth have dominion,
Body, o’er thee!
Robert Browning


DRAW the curtain of night upon injuries, shut them up in the tower of oblivion, and let them be as though they had not been. To forgive our enemies, yet hope that evil will punish them, is not to forgive them enough.
Sir Thomas Browne


IT is only by removing ourselves from charity that we withdraw ourselves from God.
Blaise Pascal


IN taking revenge a man is but even with his enemy; but in passing it over he is superior, for it is a Prince’s part to pardon.
Francis Bacon


IF I am even with my enemy, the Debt is paid; but if I forgive it, I oblige him for ever.
William Penn
