    Talking Art piece that needs a sentence in French. Help Appreciated.

    I'm working on a rather personally important painting and I was hoping to finish it out with a sentence in fancy script. I didn't want to use a English to French dictionary because I feel like it would be stiff and not really doing the language justice. So I was hoping that I could be told how to write and say it the way a French speaking person would normally say it or, even better, in a lyrical poetic sort of way. I would appreciate it very very much if someone could help me.

    The sentence is : Heaven forgive me Never forbid me

    I'm afraid it might be an american idiom but I really hope not.

    Thanks again.

    how about :

    Que Dieu me pardonne,
    jamais ne m'abandonne...


    I would say "Dieu" rather than "Le ciel"
    and "abandonner" literally means : to leave behind, to forsake.

    Amicalement,
    Frank.

    Thank you very much!

    But can I ask, out of pure curiosity, what is the difference between "Dieu" and "Le ciel"?

    The dictionary says 'God' and 'Sky'. ^_^

    God = Dieu
    Le ciel = Heaven

    of course, "le ciel" sometimes means "the sky", but not in this case...


    kindest regards,
    Frank.
