Marilynne Robinson on forgiveness

‘Until you forgive, you defend yourself against the possibility of understanding … If you forgive … you may still indeed not understand, but you will be ready to understand, and that is the posture of grace’. – Marilynne Robinson, Home (New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2008), 45.
