Gene Wolfe
“That we are capable only of being what we are remains our unforgivable sin.”
Gene Wolfe, The Claw of the Conciliator


Tell me if you've ever had to deal with these kinds of people:

The kind who take and don't give.
The kind to whom you give and give,
And they keep asking.
The kind to whom you give and give and they say you gave nothing.
The kind whom have never offered anything,
But act like they're the ones providing

The kind you give and give,
But take more than you can give.
And when they have already taken everything,
They get mad at you when you say you have
Nothing more to give.

The unforgiving,
The misgiving,
Wastefully living -
And selfishly driven.
The rat that never gives back,
Yet is so quick to attack -
Because they think the word
Seriously means
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

Elizabeth Gilbert
“In all of our lives, there are days that we wish we could see expunged from the record of our very existence. Perhaps we long for that erasure because a particular day brought us such splintering sorrow that we can scarcely bear to think of it ever again. Or we might wish to blot out an episode forever because we behaved so poorly on that day- we were mortifyingly selfish, or foolish to an extraordinary degree. Or perhaps we injured another person and wish to disremember guilt. Tragically, there are some days in a lifetime when all three of those things happen at once- when we are heartbroken and foolish and unforgivably injurious to others, all at the same time.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, The Signature of All Things

Iris Murdoch

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Forgiving others seems an easy task when compared to the trial of forgiving oneself, especially when the fault cannot be undone, and the consequences continue to mar the lives of innocent others. Regret, tears, and apologies do nothing to ease the guilt. Even the deepest, sincerest remorse will not erase the damage. How can he think to forgive himself under such circumstances? How can he bear even a moment of peace and happiness when the innocent feel none? It is unfair. It is wrong. It is why he will forever see himself as unforgivable.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold: Quotes, Poetry, & Motivations for Every Day of the Year

Iris Murdoch
“Of course I love Arnold, but I can hate him too, and it can go along with love that one never forgives certain things.”
Iris Murdoch, The Black Prince
