Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.





Action, with all its uncertainties, is like an ever-present reminder that men, though they must die, are not born in order to die, but to begin something new.

If everybody always lies to you, the consequence is not that you believe the lies, but rather that nobody believes anything any longer... And a people that no longer can believe anything cannot make up its mind. It is deprived not only of its capacity to act but also of its capacity to think and to judge. And with such a people you can then do what you please.
