Real forgiveness means looking steadily at the sin, the sin that is left over without any excuse, after all allowances have been made, and seeing it in all its horror, dirt, meanness, and malice, and nevertheless being wholly reconciled to the man who has done it. That, and only that, is forgiveness, and that we can always have from God if we ask for it.

C.S. Lewis, On Forgiveness: The Weight of Glory

우둔한 사람의 마음은 입밖에 있지만, 지혜로운 사람의 입은 그의 마음속에 있다. (The heart of a fool is in his mouth, but the mouth of a wise man is in his heart.)


Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To find our long-forgotten gold.

J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Knowing the enemy enables you to take the offensive, knowing yourself enables you to stand on the defensive.
