“If we fail to forgive ourselves when God has done so, we make ourselves a higher judge than Him.”
“Courage is the form of every virtue at the testing point. Pilate was merciful until it became risky.”
“To be a Christian means to forgive the inexcusable because God has forgiven the inexcusable in you.”
“It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest and most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which . . . you would be strongly tempted to worship. . . . There are no ordinary people.”

“I do not think that all who choose wrong roads perish; but their rescue consists in being put back on the right road. A [mathematical] sum [incorrectly worked] can be put right: but only by going back till you find the error and [then] working it afresh from that point, never by simply going on. Evil can be undone, but it cannot ‘develop’ into good. Time does not heal it. The spell must be unwound.”
