Forgiveness Quotes

Forgiveness is not an occasional act it is an attitude.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you.
William Arthur Ward
Removing the faults in a stage-coach may produce a perfect stage-coach, but it is unlikely to produce the first motor car.
Edward De Bono
A woman can forgive a man for the harm he does her...but she can never forgive him for the sacrifices he makes on her account.
W. Somerset Maugham
We are living in a day of self-seeking and irresponsibility, even in Christian circles. Few indeed are the Christian believers who have truly laid their all on the altar for Christ. Few are the spiritual leaders who truly put God FIRST . Rather they think first, albeit subconsciously, of their positions, popularity, salaries and the success of the organizations over which they preside. While professing strong allegiance to God and His Word, they are nevertheless careful not to emphasize those passages from the Word which might ruffle feathers or rock the boat, as we say. In spite of their professed fidelity to God's Word and will, their first objective is actually to keep their organizations running smoothly and pleasantly so that they may continue to grow in numbers. This has become a way of life in Christendom, but in this matter too we should 'search the Scriptures daily,' to determine whether these things have God's approval, for however good and right a thing may seem, if it is at variance with the Word, rightly divided, it is contrary to the will of God and therefore wrong.
Cornelius Stam
Psychiatry enables us to correct our faults by confessing our parents' shortcomings.
Laurence J. Peter
'Tis the most tender part of love, each other to forgive.
John Sheffield
Reason to rule but mercy to forgive The first is the law, the last prerogative.
John Dryden
I sit on a man's back, choking him and making him carry me, and yet assure myself and others that I am very sorry for him and wish to ease his lot by all possible means -- except by getting off his back.
Leo Tolstoy
Observe your enemies, for they first find out your faults.
Antisthenes
Forgiveness does not mean the cancellation of all consequences of wrong doing. It means the refusal on God's part to let our guilty past affect His relationship with us.
Unknown
It is always easier to ask forgiveness than permission.
US Marine Proverb
Were we faultless, we would not derive such satisfaction from remarking the faults of others.
La Rochefoucauld
Murder is unique in that it abolishes the party it injures, so that society has to take the place of the victim and on his behalf demand atonement or grant forgiveness it is the one crime in which society has a direct interest.
W. H. Auden
Some tension is necessary for the soul to grow, and we can put that tension to good use. We can look for every opportunity to give and receive love, to appreciate nature, to heal our wounds and the wounds of others, to forgive, and to serve.
Joan Borysenko
Mutual forgiveness of each vice. Such are the Gates of Paradise.
William Blake
