A quote by Jorge Luis Borges

I had this quote for years, in Russian, and recently decided to verify and find it in English. I traced it to and bought The Mirror Ink by Jorge Luis Borges. And guess what, the quote is not his, he is quoting also 😊 Here it is in English, finally:

“Glory to Him Who does not die, and Who holds within His hand the two keys, of infinite Pardon and infinite Punishment.”

Richard Francis Burton

  1. Not sure I am too keen on the “infinite punishment bit”! Very Old Testament!
