Forgiveness is a virtue of the brave.
A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.
When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future.
We think that forgiveness is weakness, but it’s absolutely not; it takes a very strong person to forgive.
You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, ‘I forgive. I’m finished with it.’
All major religious traditions carry basically the same message, that is love, compassion and forgiveness the important thing is they should be part of our daily lives.
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forgiveness is the final form of love.
