"My revenge is to forgive them."




http://celebrationcenter.org/la-cenerentola-forgiveness-and-the-power-of-our-word/

When the sisters and the stepfather (a Baron) are moaning and whining about the Prince’s choice of Cinderella over either of the sisters to be his wife, he threatens to hurt them for insulting her and for other things.  She intervenes, saying that, if he truly loves her, he will show mercy toward her family.  She has a lovely aria about all that has happened to her and how it has, in that moment, disappeared from her life and she says that “My revenge will be…my revenge is…to forgive them.”  

From 2:23
