Forgive: Stop feeling angry or resentful toward someone for an offense, flaw, or mistake


Easier said then done. I know the desire to forgive someone is a good place to start. Here is a few quotes from people on forgiveness...


*We are all full of weakness and errors; let us mutually pardon each other our follies --Voltaire
*To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was you.—Unknown
*Resentment is like a glass of poison that a man drinks; then he sits down and waits for his enemy to die.—Nelson Mandela when asked why he was not resentful for his imprisonment.
*Forgiveness is giving up the possibility of a better past. --Unknown
*I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note--torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one. -- Henry Ward Beecher
*You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well. --Lewis B. Smedes
*What we forgive too freely doesn't stay forgiven. --Mignon McLaughlin
*It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend. --William Blake
*Without deep humility, true forgiveness is impossible…and will never happen. --Martha Kilpatrick
*Forgiveness is me giving up my right to hurt you for hurting me. --Anonymous
*"Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another's control... to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else's nightmare." - Lance Morrow
*The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.-- Mahatma Gandhi
