I pride myself on the fact that my work has no socially redeeming value.
So I believe in the redeeming power of stories, I believe that stories are incredibly important, possibly in ways we don't understand, in allowing us to make sense of our lives, in allowing us to escape our lives, in giving us empathy and in creating the world that we live in. - Neil Gaiman
The really unforgivable acts are committed by calm men in beautiful green silk rooms, who deal death wholesale, by the shipload, without lust, or anger, or desire, or any redeeming emotion to excuse them but cold fear of some pretended future. - lois bujord
We are always in search of the redeeming formula, the crystallizing thought. - Etty Hillesum
He hadn't a single redeeming vice. - Oscar Wilde
