Count Enzenberg asked Prince Bismark to write something in his album of memories. Prince Bismark noticed that somebody wrote, “Throughout my life, I learned two essential rules for wisdom: the first is to forgive a lot; and the second is to never forget.”
Another person wrote, “A little forgetfulness does not prevent honest forgiveness.” Bismark wrote, “I learned to forget a lot and to ask for a lot of forgiveness.”
God, You asked me to forgive my brother,
“Up to seventy-seven times” (Matt. 18.22).
Let me forget all that I think is bad.
Let me acknowledge my own sins,
To ask forgiveness from my brethren.
The Tenth Man
