Forgiveness quotes
Forgiveness
Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever. It implies a discovery of weakness, which we are more careful to conceal than a crime. Many a man will confess his crimes to a friend; but I never knew a man that would tell his silly weaknesses to his most intimate one.

- Chesterfield, Lord
There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.

- Josh Billings
After the forgiveness of sin must come the cure of sin. And that cure, like most cures, is a long and a painful process. But there is our comfort, there is our hope--Christ the great Healer, the great Physician, can deliver us, and will deliver us, from the remains of our old sins, the consequences of our own follies. Not, indeed, at once, or by miracle, but by slow education in new and nobler motives, in purer and more unselfish habits.

- All Saints' Day Sermons. 1861.
If I owe Smith ten dollars and God forgives me, that doesn't pay Smith.

- Ingersoll, Robert Green
Fat people, it is commonly held, should be punished because they offend our aesthetic sensibilities. They take up too much space on subways, buses, airplanes, and elevators. They consume more than they contribute to society. They become ill and need to be taken care of, or they die early and their families are left unsupported. The only way fat people can gain some acceptance and forgiveness for their crime of overeating is to at least try, or look like they are trying, to lose weight. They must never eat an ice cream cone in public, never be seen eating a normal sized portion of non-diet food!

- Albert Ellis, Michael Abrams, Lidia Dengelegi
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it

- Twain, Mark
To forgive oneself? No, that doesn't work: we have to be forgiven. But we can only believe this is possible if we ourselves can forgive.

- Hammarskjold, Dag
If a good person does you wrong, act as though you had not noticed it. They will make note of this and not remain in your debt long.

- Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.

- Dietrich, Marlene
If the other person injures you, you may forget the injury; but if you injure him you will always remember.

- Gibran, Kahlil
Forgiveness does not always lead to a healed relationship. Some people are not capable of love, and it might be wise to let them go along with your anger. Wish them well, and let them go their way.

- Real Live Preacher
Never repeat old grievances.

- Proverb
Anger ventilated often hurries towards forgiveness; anger concealed often hardens into revenge.

- Bulwer-Lytton, Edward G.
The best thing to give to your enemy is forgiveness; to an opponent, tolerance; to a friend, your heart; to your child, a good example; to a father, deference; to your mother, conduct that will make her proud of you; to yourself, respect; to all men, charity.

- Francis Maitland Balfour
A winner rebukes and forgives; a loser is too timid to rebuke and too petty to forgive

- Harris, Sidney J.
Forgiveness is almost a selfish act because of its immense benefits to the one who forgives.

- Lawana Blackwell
Forgive those who have hurt you.

- Brown, Les
Forgiveness is the fragrance the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.

- Mark Twain
It is easier to ask forgiveness than permission.

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we would find in each person's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm all hostility.

- Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth
