Be Braap~Be Inspired!!! Real quotes from Real People #15

”An eye for eye only ends up making the whole world blind.” - M.K. Gandhi

I love the twist that Gandhi has given to the saying, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ -another great saying along the lines of, ‘two wrongs don’t make a right.’ When you stop to consider the enormity of Gandhi’s comment it’s quite mind boggling because Gandhi is applying his saying worldwide rather than on an individual basis and in doing so highlights the consequence of retribution rather than forgiveness. Forgiveness makes us richer and we remain in control whereas retribution is simply a form of retaliation disabling us physically and spiritually. Think about this next time you feel like getting your own back and stop to consider more edifying options!
