John Paul Richter – Nothing is more moving than the spectacle of reconciliation

Share this quote:
Nothing is more moving to man than the spectacle of reconciliation:  our weaknesses are thus indemnified, and are not too costly – being the price we pay for the hour of forgiveness : and the archangel, who has never felt anger, has reason to envy the man who subdues it. When thou forgivest -the man, who has pierced thy heart, stands to thee in the relation of the sea worm that perforates the shell of the muscle, which straightway closes the wound with a pearl.

John Paul Richter
