Portrait of guilt

Forgiveness is not forgetfulness, but remembrance.


Justice does not forgive; he comes condemning, and forgets.


Society does not forgive; let time pass, let it run out in it, and forget.


Forgiveness is unfair and incomprehensible.


The victim always remembers; he cannot erase the imprint of crime because evil cannot forget it and it is irreparable, yet he forgives.


One always remembers; because the victim cannot return, because the evil and the pain cannot be repaired, and for that very reason, suffering, we can forgive ourselves.


Forgiveness is absurd and only in its absurdity does it make sense.
