I think it's at the very end of Claw, in the scene where Jolenta dies.

As I recall, it goes something like: "In the end there is only love, only
that divinity. That we are capable of being only what we are remains our
unforgivable sin."

Believe it or not, I used the line when I had to give my speech as the
valedictorian in high school. I figured Severian was a cooler reference
than Polonius ("to thine own self be true," yadda yadda yadda). Damned if
I can remember what context I placed it in, though.
