Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.
Madeline L'Engle

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.

A marriage based on full confidence, based on complete and unqualified frankness on both sides; they are not keeping anything back; there's no deception underneath it all. If I might so put it, it's an agreement for the mutual forgiveness of sin.
Henrik Ibsen
The Wild Duck.

What we forgive too freely doesn't stay forgiven.
Mignon McLaughlin
The Neurotic's Notebook.

To forgive all is as inhuman as to forgive none.

Sincere forgiveness isn't colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don't worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time.
Sara Paddison

The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
Thomas S. Szasz

We achieve inner health only through forgiveness - the forgiveness not only of others but also of ourselves.
Joshua Loth Liebman

Verily God hath one hundred loving kindnesses; one of which he hath sent down amongst man, quadrupeds, and every moving thing upon the face of the earth: by it they are kind to each other, and forgive one another; and by it the animals of the wilds are kind to their young; and God hath reserved ninety-nine loving kindnesses by which he will be gracious to His creatures on the last day.

It's far easier to forgive an enemy after you've got even with him.
Olin Miller

The secret of forgiving everything is to understand nothing.
George Bernard Shaw

Without forgiveness life is governed by... an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.
Roberto Assagioli

Father, forgive them: for they know not what they do.
St. Luke, 23. 34.

God pardons like a mother, who kisses the offense into everlasting forgiveness.
Henry Ward Beecher

Let us forgive each other - only then will we live in peace.
Leo Tolstoy

There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.
Josh Billings

Forgiving is love's toughest work, and love's biggest risk. If you twist it into something it was never meant to be, it can make you a doormat or an insufferable manipulator. Forgiving seems almost unnatural. Our sense of fairness tells us people should pay for the wrong they do. But forgiving is love's power to break nature's rule.
Lewis B. Smedes

Most of us can forgive and forget; we just don't want the other person to forget that we forgave.
Ivern Ball

The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
William Blake

Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven.
St Matthew, 18. 21.

You ought certainly to forgive them as a Christian, but never to admit them in your sight, or allow their names to be mentioned in your hearing.
Jane Austin
Pride and Prejudice.

When a deep injury is done us, we never recover until we forgive.
Alan Paton

Forgiveness means letting go of the past.
Gerald Jampolsky

One thing you will probably remember well is any time you forgive and forget.
Franklin P. Jones

And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
The Lord's Prayer

To forgive is human, to forget divine.
James Grand

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 the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
St. Augustine

Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness.
H. Jackson Brown Jr.

Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.
Dag Hammarskjold

Without forgiveness, there's no future.
Desmond Tutu
