Forgiveness

To apologize is to lay the foundation for a future offense.

The condition of being forgiven is self-abandonment. The proud man prefers self-reproach, however painful --because the reproached self isn't abandoned; it remains intact.

- Huxley, Aldous

Love thy neighbor as thyself: Do not to others what thou wouldn't not wish be done to thyself: Forgive injuries. Forgive thy enemy, be reconciled to him, give him assistance, invoke God in his behalf.

9.

We are told that people stay in love because of chemistry or because they remain intrigued with each other, because of many kindnesses, because of luck... But part of it has got to be forgiveness and gratefulness.

- Ellen Goodman
10.

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
11.

A woman who can't forgive should never have more than a nodding acquaintance with a man.

- Howe, Edgar Watson
12.

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.

- Augustine, St.
13.

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

- Beecher, Henry Ward
14.

In contrast to revenge, which is the natural, automatic reaction to transgression and which, because of the irreversibility of the action process can be expected and even calculated, the act of forgiving can never be predicted; it is the only reaction that acts in an unexpected way and thus retains, though being a reaction, something of the original character of action.

- Arendt, Hannah
15.

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.

- Peter Ustinov
16.

Forgive, son; men are men; they needs must err.

- Euripides
17.

Forgive you? -- Oh, of course, dear, a dozen times a week! We women were created forgiveness but to speak.

- Higginson, Ella
18.

I never forgive, but I always forget.

- Balfour, Arthur James
19.

Thou must be emptied of that wherewith thou art full, that thou mayest be filled with that whereof thou art empty.

- Augustine, St.

Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.

- Dietrich, Marlene
