    Is there such a thing?

    How can you forget something after you have forgiven someone? Isn't that the most difficult thing to do? Yes you can forgive, but you won't forget... Or is love and friendship so strong you can look beyond that person and honestly truly and genuinely forget whatever happened...

    I believe the word "forget" was a mistranslation from the original text.
    In proper context, it may have meant something like the term "forget about it" - which does not imply "forgetting" but ignoring.

    I always thought it was more of an expression. I guess English being my third language, I never really thought more into it than just a saying. I mean you can forgive but you'll never forget it happened.

    If you forget history, you may very well repeat it.

    Yeah, I found that out the hard way when I failed history in high school.
