Forgetting is Forgiving

“Was it you that killed me, or did I kill you?” 

Abel answered, “I don’t remember anymore; here we are together, like before.”

“Now I know that you have truly forgiven me,” Cain said, “because forgetting is forgiving.  I, too, will try to forget.”

– Jorge Luis Borges ~ Legend – translated by Andrew Hurley
