    I’ve noticed a parallel between vengeance and insecurity, where evil meets both every time.

    But how could this be, since everyone subscribes to some kind of God?

    I love this quote!

      Thanks Tim. I love it too. Yes, but perhaps it’s not as simple as that. We may all subscribe to some kind of God, but our backgrounds, together with our baggage, childhood and opinions change and interfere with our interpretations on how we see things, including religion.

      “An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.” and the world will achieve nothing, but heartache by taking this approach.

    What a great quote. Vengeance achieves nothing and if we keep taking an eye for an eye there will be no one left to ‘see’ the harm we have done.
