It is easier to forgive an enemy than a friend.
The enemy you trusted not can inflict but a shallow wound.
The beatings we administer to ourselves take the longest to heal.
Always forgive your enemies - nothing annoys them so much. - Oscar Wilde
William's Whimsical Words:
Even trying to forgive brings out the divine part of our nature.
