To Understand, to Forgive

– Дурацкая, кстати, общеизвестная формула: ‘понять – значит простить’, поскольку настоящее, глубинное понимание наглядно показывает, что прощать, собственно, нечего.

Макс Фрай, Жалобная книга

Translation (by yours truly):

By the way, the well known formula ‘to understand means to forgive’ is stupid, because the real, deep understanding clearly reveals that there is nothing to forgive, really.

– Max Frei, The Book of Complaints
