How happy is the blameless vestal’s lot!
the world forgiving by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray’r accepted, and each wish resign’d….”

From Eloisa to Abelard by Alexander Pope.

Quoted in, what is perhaps my favorite movie, “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”. The poem deals with the concepts of divine love, tortured lovers, vengeance within the family, forgetting and letting go.
