T.D. Jakes
Unforgiveness denies the victim the possibility of parole and leaves them stuck in the prison of what was, incarcerating them in their trauma and relinquishing the chance to escape beyond the pain.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
Often a man endures for several years, submits and suffers the cruellest punishments, and then suddenly breaks out over some minute trifle, almost nothing at all.

The securest place is a prison cell, but there is no liberty
Martin Luther King, Jr.
We should never forget that everything Adolph Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighers did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany.
G.K. Chesterton

Fyodor Dostoevsky

Proshka was a man of self-esteem. He considered himself a cut above the rest, and had a degree of personal pride. His spell in prison was a humiliating experience for him. No longer could he strut with pride before his fellows, and his spirits sank at once. Proshka went home from prison embittered not so much against Pyotr Nikolayevich as against the whole world. Everyone said the same thing: after he came out of prison, Proshka went to pieces. He grew too lazy to work, took to drink, and was soon caught stealing clothes from the trademan's wife. Once again he ended up in prison.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
After the first of the familiar verses the prisoner came at last to the words 'as it is in heaven'. That was all that was wanted. 'Stop!' cried the lieutenant, blazing with excitement, turned like a flash, with a gesture of inspiration, to the man with his stick raised, and shouted: 'Give him seventy times seven!
