I love this post about forgiveness over on Art of Manliness.
The website decor evokes sandalwood soap, leather luggage and Edwardian gents with immaculate whiskers. Topics include shaving and the grooming of facial hair, selection and care of suits and hats and how to exhibit 'manly' behavior. And while I'm only a recent reader, I can't recall finding objectionable, gender-insensitive content. Well, some of the commenters on posts, but you can't blame the site for that.
Back to the inspiring post. Entitled "Is Forgiveness Manly?" and beginning a selection from Old E.A. Poe's Cask of Amontillado, the article explores the common misconception that masculinity is typified by balancing vendettas and dishing out ice-cold revenge.
Hop on over.
In a related quote, this from Mike Sares of Scum:
"Bitterness is a poison that you drink hoping someone else dies."
