Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were
Never does the human soul appear so strong and noble as when it forgoes revenge and dares to forgive injury.
Chapin, Edwin Hubbel
Those who cannot forgive others break the bridge over which they themselves must pass.
Forgiveness is better than revenge, for forgiveness is the sign of a gentle nature, but revenge is the sign of a savage nature.
Write your injuries in dust, your benefits in marble
Forgiveness is the only task at hand, it lies at the base of all earthy missions, it is the path to heaven.
Horne, Karl Edwin
Forgiveness does not mean ignoring what has been done or putting a false label on an evil act. It means, rather, that the evil act no longer remains as a barrier to the relationship.
King, Jr, Dr. Martin Luther
Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life
When a deep injury is done to us, we never recover until we forgive.
The best memory is that which forgets nothing but injuries. Write kindness in marble and write injuries in the dust.
The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naïve forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
Szasz, Dr Thomas
To forgive is holy To forget takes restraint To forget what you forgave is the mark of a true saint.
Never say sorry for what you meant to do
Love your enemies. They'll go crazy trying to figure out what you are up to
An apology may be a sign of weakness, but having the courage to go up to someone and say sorry is a strength!
Always forgive your enemies, nothing annoys them so much.
Many promising reconciliations have broken down because while both parties come prepared to forgive, neither party come prepared to be forgiven.
