Forgive and Forget 

​”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 it forgiving. I, too, will try to forget.”
{Jorge Luis Borges – Legend  –  Translated by Andrew Hurley}

Whoever coined the phrase ‘a man has to play the cards he’s dealt’ was definitely a piss poor buffer.”

Forgetting is Forgiving

“Was it you that killed me, or did I kill you?”  Abel answered. “I don’t remember any more; 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.”

Quotation-Jeannette-Walls-play-Meetville-Quotes-11564

This is one of my favorite quotes.  I read it in Jeannette Walls’ memoir “The Glass Castle”.  It has been several years since reading the book, and at least twice, re-reading.  One of my favorite memoirs.  This quote is inspiring to me.  I have always heard the phrase, “that’s the cards I was dealt.”  So, to me, this quote speaks volumes.  I suppose if you look at life as if you’re giving certain cards and have to play your hand, learn to bluff.  “Fake it til you make it” type mentality.

Albert-Camus-Quote

This quote come to mind because of Autumn and I love how optimistic this sounds.  My favorite season is summer.  Autumn is spectacular where I live though and I love the crisp breeze, the many colors, and just the feel of Fall. 

These quotes were written for Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop.  Enjoy.
