A Quote from Jay-Z

“Identity is a prison you can never escape, but the way to redeem your past is not to run from it, but to try to understand it, and use it as a foundation to grow.” – Jay-Z, Decoded

I haven’t read Jay-Z’s book – maybe I should? – I came across this quote sort of randomly. What it says to me is there is no such thing as forgiveness. Whatever you say, whatever you do, however you appear – you cannot escape from your past. Your mistakes, your errors – they are yours forever. You cannot take anything back, you cannot be redeemed.

I don’t know about you, but that scares the shit out of me.
