The Unbearable Kindness of God

From Mere Islam: My Favorite Sufi Aphorism

One day, a rich man came to Rabi'a al-'Adawiyyah and said, "For many years I've lived a very spoiled, arrogant and sinful life. If I repent now will God forgive me?"
Rabi'a replied, "No, but if God forgives you, you will repent."
