When the Prodigal came home and the elder brother became jealous and self-righteous , the antidote for his sour-grapes was a refresher course for his memory : ` My boy , ' said the father , ` you are always with me , and everything I have is yours . ' In the parable , the King 's servant , forgiven a crippling debt of millions , refused to forgive his fellow servant the debt of a few coins . By demanding payment on a trifling amount , he is remembering what he should have forgotten and forgetting what he should have remembered -- that he himself has just been forgiven . Only such forgetfulness could allow such unforgivingness . The same lesson has been appreciated through the history of the church . Augustine recognized that Paul 's words touched everything : there was nothing he had which he had not received . If this was so , then all was of grace .

On his long , solitary walks in Italy , Switzerland and Paris , he began to long for Sarah . He pictured her mane of dark hair which was so beautiful to touch , and her unblemished skin , like silk beneath his fingers . And more than once he lost his way because he was remembering the bluest eyes he had ever seen . Yet she was not a conventionally beautiful girl .

Immediately he was back in England he longed to seek her out , but his acquaintance with the Bradfords prohibited it .

' They talked , easily at first , then a little less spontaneously .

And yet it was not the face of her customer that she saw in her mind , but the strong lean jaw and the dark unfathomable eyes of a stranger . Craig Grenfell stared moodily through the window of his friend 's house in Chapel Street , his hands were thrust into his pockets , and his shoulders were slumped . He was remembering the bitterness of his arrest and the ignominy of being imprisoned behind the grim walls of Swansea Prison . He looked out into the roadway without seeing the rain beating mercilessly against the cobbled surface or the leaves of the trees dripping constantly as they shivered in the breeze , he was seeing the four walls of his cell and remembering his feeling of helplessness as the door slammed shut behind him .

But he 'd made sure he knew where the quarry lived .

INCUBUS has a think-tank called Dracon based outside Boston . All the ideas come from there .

At last she said slowly , ` What I mean is , looking back over the past is always a bit sad , even if what you 're remembering is happy times , because it 's over and done .

She put the skull down on the table , took the ring out of her pocket , and put it on her finger . Hepzibah took her hand and bent her head over it .

And because she was remembering that , when Albert said , ` It 's her ring , is n't it ? ' she was n't altogether surprised , only felt a little , shivery shock , as if something she had been half-expecting to happen , had happened at last . Hepzibah 's fingers tightened on hers .

Curtis had taken advantage of it and put an azalea on the table in the passage , a yellow one with a pungent scent . Leon always opened his door after that and , standing in the same spot where I could see him , he would play . I never discovered for certain if he knew I was watching him . Perhaps , like his mother , he was aware of his beauty , wished to have it admired . Although nothing in his daytime demeanour was vain . But I was admiring him and remembering Francis ; how he had been , once ; what it felt like to touch and be touched by him . My thoughts had n't run in this way for years . Now , nightly , when Leon had finished playing and had closed his door again , I would be left sleepless , confused by the force of my neglected senses .

On a day when good feelings were pretty scarce , it did n't seem wrong to spare just one moment to be glad for her . As always , she went straight to her room when they got home . Pete went to the refrigerator , took out a beer , and then carried it along with a kitchen chair out onto the porch . His inclination was to be down at the yard .

Oppression lay on me like a dead beast , not gaunt and stiff-legged like the animals which lay where they had dropped along the desert road , but soft and smothering like something from which the breath had only just gone . Once when I had thought Nour loved me I had delighted in a garden full of roses surrounding a villa where his aunts lived . The aunts had sat half-veiled in the evening , talking in Arabic and French and sometimes in English for me , but I had n't listened . I had been remembering another rose garden lit by shafts of lightning and somebody telling me not to be afraid and to go to sleep . I had n't been afraid . I had wanted to watch the roses lit by sudden light , but they would n't let me . The roses in the garden of the aunts were covered by a thin , barely perceptible layer of dust . Spoiled gardens , dusty flowers , small animals cowering under wilting leaves .

And then again , but this time on a coffee spoon , with the other half of the sugar cube . The calvados did not flow like fire if taken with sucre en morceaux like this : it just gave a funny kick in the area of her chest , and made her gurgle with the heat of it . She was remembering how this M. Apéritif looked at her -- ; the French , especially d'un certain âge , were such mooncalves when it came to flirting , rolling eyes and winking shamelessly ; she was in consequence smiling to herself when she reached the hall . To the left , opposite the reception desk , in the parlour with the rubber plant and the lace half-curtains , where she sometimes had her breakfast ( if she was up before ten when Madame stopped serving it ) , she saw her grandfather , Sir Anthony Everard , erect against the window , with her young aunt his daughter beside him , Xanthe Everard , Miranda 's nursery playmate
