Norrington: “One good deed is not enough to redeem a man of a lifetime of wickedness.”
Jack Sparrow: “Though it seems enough to condemn him.”
Conversely, one misstep, one misspeak, one transgression, or even a series of them; does not negate the good person trying.
No matter how bombastic they might be, if the heart is right, you’re allowed a mistake or two.
I extend this to others because I’m pretty sure I need similar understanding and forgiveness.
