Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds
on the heel that has crushed it.
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
Lewis B. Smedes
Whether expressed as a swinging hammer or a falling leaf, free will is the only real power humans possess. It is lovingly constrained as if contained within a children's sandbox by our Creator, otherwise we should all be maimed, dead, or non existent.
