The weak can never forgive.
Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Mistakes are always forgivable,
if one has the courage to admit them.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness;
only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds
on the heel that has crushed it.
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
Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
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
Forgiveness is the remission of sins.
For it is by this that what has been lost,
and was found, is saved from being lost again.
