“Quote Unquote”

November 2, 2018 § Leave a comment

“Surely it is much more generous to forgive and remember, than to forgive and forget.”  —  Maria Edgeworth

“I also am other than what I imagine myself to be. To know this is forgiveness.”  —  Simone Weil

“From forgiveness anew life will spring in the believer, and as a consequence forgiveness cannot be forgotten. No longer is the Law the only disciplinarian [to lead us] to Christ, but forgiveness through Christ is the gentle disciplinarian who does not have the heart to remind us of what has been forgotten but still reminds us of it to the extent of saying: Just remember that it is forgiven. It is not forgotten but is forgotten in forgiveness. Every time you recollect the forgiveness, it is forgotten; but when you forget the forgiveness, it is not forgotten, but then the forgiveness is wasted.”  —  Søren Kierkegaard
