Forgiveness

 

The only way to forget is to accept, and the way to move on is to look ahead.

Johnny Mango

There is a hard law. When an injury is done to us, we never recover until we forgive.

Alan Paton

One of the secrets of a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody everything every night before you go to bed.

Bernard Baruch

To be forgiven, you must forgive yourself.

Annie Zalezsak, 30 December 2011

Return to the centre of your heart; not your past.

Unknown

Forgiveness means that you do not hold others responsible for your experiences.

from The Seat of the Soul, by Gary Zukav

Life is too short to waste
In critic peep or cynic bark,
Quarrel or reprimand:
‘Twill soon be dark;
Up! Mind thine own aim,
and God speed the mark!

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Forgiveness is not a moral issue. It is an energy dynamic. When most people forgive they do not want those that they forgave, to forget that they forgave and forgot. This kind of forgiveness manipulates the person who is forgiven. It is not forgiveness. It is a means of acquiring external power over another.

Forgiveness means that you do not carry the baggage of an experience. When you choose not to forgive, the experience that you do not forgive sticks with you. When you choose not to forgive, it is like agreeing to wear dark, gruesome sunglasses that distort everything, and it is you who are forced every day to look at life through those contaminated lenses because you have chosen to keep them.

from The Seat of the Soul, by Gary Zukav

In family there are no crimes beyond forgiveness.

from the film, The Prince of Tides

Forgiveness is the fragrance from the violet beneath the heel which has crushed it.

Mark Twain

If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears.

Glenn Clark

Society often forgives the criminal; it never forgives the dreamer.

Oscar Wilde (1891)

The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.

Eric Hoffer

Right actions for the future are the best apologies for wrong ones in the past.

Tyron Edwards

Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.

Carl Bard

Many people are afraid to forgive because they feel they must remember the wrong or they will not learn from it. The opposite is true. Through forgiveness, the wrong is released from its emotional stranglehold on us so that we can learn from it. Through the power and intelligence of the heart, the release of forgiveness brings expanded intelligence to work with the situation more effectively.

David and Bruce McArthur

Forgive everybody everything every night before you go to bed.

Never does the human soul appear so strong as when it forgoes revenge, and dares forgive an injury.

EH Chapin
