“Sometimes one forgives in order to remain in a relationship with someone she cares about, even if the person has caused her pain and anguish. It's not a blanket pardon; it's the trade-off one is willing to make when preserving the relationship is more important than correcting the injustice.”
Carolyn Jessop, Triumph

“No one was more surprised than I to realize that my newfound freedom had been purchased by giving up on eternity and settling for hell.”
Carolyn Jessop, Escape

“How could any woman endure a life of misery with such a cheap promise of appreciation after her death?”
