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.
