Forgiveness Quotes

If you haven't forgiven yourself something, how can you forgive others?

Dolores Huerta

Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.

Hannah Arendt

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.

Henry Ward Beecher

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Mahatma Gandhi

He who cannot forgive breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass.

George Herbert

Nobody forgets where he buried the hatchet.

Frank McKinney

We cannot love unless we have accepted forgiveness, and the deeper our experience of forgiveness is, the greater is our love.

Paul Tillich

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

Glenn Clark

Women will forgive anything. Otherwise, the race would have died out long ago.

Robert A. Heinlein

Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is again made clean.

Dag Hammarskjold

You don't have to accept the invitation to get angry. Instead, practice forgiveness, empathy and encouragement.

Dan Fallon

There's no hatred that can ever be satisfied either in this world or the next, and the hatred that one has for oneself is probably the one for which there is no forgiveness.

Georges Bernanos

It is useless to try to adjudicate a long-standing animosity by asking who started it or who is the most wrong. The only sufficient answer is to give up the animosity and try forgiveness, to try to love our enemies and to talk to them and (if we pray) to pray for them. If we can't do any of that, then we must begin again by trying to imagine our enemies' children who, like our children, are in mortal danger because of enmity that they did not cause.

Wendell Berry

Dont ask permission, just ask forgiveness.

Drake

I suppose I want to leave a word with you tonight, that seems to have been applicable and important to everyone lately. And that is remember Mercy, Love and Forgiveness, because this seems to be lacking, and causing and creating a lot of problems for people because it is so lacking. So remember that, first and foremost. And if you're already doing a good job at that, you think good for you! Step it up a bit! That's your challenge. As for me, I must work on these things always too!

MaryAnne Ysabella

Have you come here for forgiveness? Have you come to raise the dead? Have you come here to play Jesus to the lepers in your head

Paul David Hewson
