some roads lead nowhere

I’ve talked a lot about forgiveness. As you can imagine, a man like me has to believe in it. But I don’t. Forgiveness doesn’t exist. There’s simply what you do… and how you pay for it. So remember that when you practice whatever evil’s in your heart… or when you cheat or steal or lust or hate or gossip or covet or whatever it is that you do or you’re planning to do or you have done. There is no forgiveness. There’s just what comes next. Take it from someone who’s been there, who is there. There’s only pain… and guilt… and the misery of knowing who you are and what you did. So don’t do it. Just stop… before it’s too late.

Jamie: Uncle Clay!
Clay: What’s up, buddy? God, I missed you! But not as much as your Aunt Quinn missed you.
Ken: Is there something we can do for you, Clay?
Clay: You, no. But there is something that I can do for Nathan.
Ken: We don’t have time for this!
Nathan: Sure we do.
