To Know All Is To Forgive All

If we truly knew a person, we would understand more, forgive more, and friendships would be stronger. Each one of us has a story, a history that results in how we are today; our story impacts our decisions, how we react, our relationships, and the type of person we are.

To Know All Is To Forgive All
by Nixon Waterman

If I knew you and you knew me, -
If both of us could clearly see,
And with an inner sight divine
The meaning of your heart and mine,
I'm sure that we would differ less
And clasp our hand in friendliness;
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree
If I knew you and you knew me.

If I knew you and you knew me,
As each one knows his own self, we
Would look each other in the face
And see therein a truer grace.
Life has so many hidden woes,
So many thorns for every rose;
The "why" of things in our hearts would see,
If I knew you and you knew me.
