“Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them so much.”
is the rarest thing
in the world.
that is all.”
(both quotes, Oscar Wilde)
He was right, forgiving your enemies not only annoys them, but frees you from the bitterness and pain of resentment so that you can live a beautiful, fulfilling life after them! And nothing is more enjoyable than knowing that you annoyed an enemy by your kindness! The best revenge truly is moving on, happily, and living your life to it’s fullest… so why is it so hard to do that at times? It’s hard to let go of things we feel we are owed when someone has wronged us. Maybe we just want that sense of closure – or to know that we still matter – that our pain mattered. I really don’t know… but I do know it’s hard to forget & forgive, at least, for me.
Every person matters, that is my belief.
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
(from Lady Windermere’s Fan, Oscar Wilde)
A cynic is not looking at the stars….
is a man
who knows the price
and the value
And yet the simple, yet profound truth about women….
“Every woman is a rebel.”
(all quotes by Oscar Wilde)
