The Violet


by Catherine Giordano

The Orlando Sentinel publishes “Ask Amy” and advice columnist.  This week “Rita in Burbank California sent a letter with this quote which she attributed to Mark Twain. ‘Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.’

I do public speaking and one of my talks is “All About Apologies … and Forgiveness.” I think that quote should get incorporated into the talk.

It’s such a beautiful statement—it is a wonderful image for a poem.
