Forgiveness, hostility, uncertainty and absurdity (Longfellow and Voltaire, via David Gurteen)

“If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person’s life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.”
Longfellow

“Uncertainty is an uncomfortable position. But certainty is an absurd one.”
Voltaire
