When men are young, they don’t forgive. The world is very competitive. As you grow older, you forgive your rivals, your children and everyone else. The closer you get to the end of the race, the more generous you are with the other runners.
Leonard Cohen, quoted in Comme Un Guerrier by Christian Fevret (Throat Culture magazine, 1992).
