“An eye for an eye only leads to more blindness.”—Margaret Atwood
Forgiveness gives you more peace of mind than hate and revenge. If we all learn to forgive others sincerely, we will have a better world fr all of us.
Indeed. There is will be no mercy if only justice prevails, this is just justice. There will also be no pardon, no grace.
Justice can really be hard to find. As well as it can also blind you seeking for it.
I agree the road of hatress become vicious and end destroying everything around.
Definitely true, if we always take revenge, it will never stop. It wil only lead to more chaos.
Oh my, what a saying! Literally one can say it would definitely lead to more blindness, live and let live. Forgiveness should be our watch word daily
This quote is simple but has a very deep meaning. When we revenge we cause more harm than what was caused originally.
Great quote to ensure we live peacefully. Its like two wrong don’t make a right.
An eye for an eye will always remain a bad decision. There should alwsal be a place of forgiven in all aspects of life
That’s just the truth. This is one thing I’m never a fan of. Everyone and everywhere will be messed up if we decides to retaliate all the time.
Getting even is not the solution. Always choose the high road.
Revenge or getting even is never the right thing..its best to forgive ane move on..that gives inner peace
I look at this as revenge only breeds revenge. Everyone looses and nobody wins. It is hard to forgive at times but we must at least try to do so. Always.
Very wise thoughts from Margaret Atwood. It’s important to not hold grudges and to be the bigger person in any conflict. Being angry and vengeful is both physically and emotionally straining.
An “amen” from an agnostic for this, that an eye for an eye leads to blindness. This should be a rule for living for all homo sapiens.
And yet, seeking revenge, getting even and the filing of frivolous lawsuits is the new vogue.
