Genuine forgiveness does not deny anger but faces it head on.
Alice Duer Miller
A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.
Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.
William Arthur Ward
Forgiveness is me giving up my right to hurt you for hurting me.
Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge.
Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologizes 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-just like it does for you and me.
When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.
“The only cure I’ve ever know for fear and doubt and loneliness is an immense love of self.”
