Forgiveness quotes by Jonathan Nolan
#1. Time eventually convinces most of us that forgiveness is a virtue. Conveniently, cowardice and forgiveness look identical at a certain distance. #Quote by Jonathan Nolan
Forgiveness quotes by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
#2. There in its nasty, stinking, underground home our insulted, crushed and ridiculed mouse promptly becomes absorbed in cold, malignant and, above all, everlasting spite. For forty years together it will remember its injury down to the smallest, most ignominious details, and every time will add, of itself, details still more ignominious, spitefully teasing and tormenting itself with its own imagination. It will itself be ashamed of its imaginings, but yet it will recall it all, it will go over and over every detail, it will invent unheard of things against itself, pretending that those things might happen, and will forgive nothing. Maybe it will begin to revenge itself, too, but, as it were, piecemeal, in trivial ways, from behind the stove, incognito, without believing either in its own right to vengeance, or in the success of its revenge, knowing that from all its efforts at revenge it will suffer a hundred times more than he on whom it revenges itself, while he, I daresay, will not even scratch himself. On its deathbed it will recall it all over again, with interest accumulated over all the years… #Quote by Fyodor Dostoyevsky
Forgiveness quotes by George W. Bush
#3. Grief and tragedy and hatred are only for a time. Goodness, remembrance and love have no end, and the Lord of life holds all who die and all who mourn. #Quote by George W. Bush
Forgiveness quotes by Gayle Forman
#4. I want to undo this. To make it right. But I have no idea how. I don't seem to know how to open up to people without getting the door slammed in my face. So I do nothing. #Quote by Gayle Forman
Forgiveness quotes by Fred Rogers
#5. The only thing evil can't stand is forgiveness. #Quote by Fred Rogers
Forgiveness quotes by Asa Don Brown

Forgiveness quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#7. One day a boy asked his father, "What is the value of this life?" Instead of answering, the father told his son, "Take this rock and go offer it at a market, however do not accept any offer and bring the rock back to me. If anybody asks the price, raise two fingers and don't say anything."The boy then went to the market and a man asked,"How much is this rock? I want to put it in my garden." The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers, so the man said… "$2? I'll take it." And the boy went home and told his father, "A man at the market wants to buy this rock for $2." The father then said, "Son I want you to take this rock to the museum, and if you are asked the price, raise two fingers and don't say a word." The boy then went to the museum, and quickly a man wanted to buy the rock, The boy didn't say anything and raised two fingers and the man said… "$200? I'll take it." The boy was shocked and went running home with the rock in hand, "Father a man wants to buy this rock for $200." His father then said, "There is one last place I'd like you to offer this rock, take it to the precious stone store and show it only to the owner and don't say a word, if he asks the price raise two fingers." The son then went to the precious stone store and showed the rock to the owner. "Where did you find this?" The owner asked, "This is a most precious unpolished gem, one of the most valuable in the whole world, I must have it. What price would you take for it?" The boy didn't say anything #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.

#9. To reconfess past sins would be to doubt the reality of God's forgiveness. God is not like us. When God forgives, it is once and for all - complete and permanent. #Quote by Redemptorists
Forgiveness quotes by Whitney Gracia Williams
#10. I don't want to hear any bullshit about how 'forgiveness' helps you sleep better at night,' because that's not true. (My seven layer mattress is amazing.) #Quote by Whitney Gracia Williams
Forgiveness quotes by Alex Pattakos
#11. The search for meaning in our lives takes us on paths large and small. When we go beyond ourselves-whether in forgiveness, unselfishness, thoughtfulness, generosity and understanding toward others-we enter into the spiritual realm of meaning. By giving beyond ourselves, we make our own lives richer. This is a truth long understood at the heart of all meaningful spiritual traditions. It's a mystery that can only be experienced. And when we do experience it, we are in the heart of meaning. We are no longer a prisoner of our thoughts. #Quote by Alex Pattakos
Forgiveness quotes by Shahzad Ashraf
#12. No matter how long you behest, to the fruit draped tree.
It will do you no best, until a shingle you free. #Quote by Shahzad Ashraf
Forgiveness quotes by Asa Don Brown

Forgiveness quotes by Adrian Rogers
#14. Forgiveness is not an emotion; it's a choice. #Quote by Adrian Rogers
Forgiveness quotes by Brandon Bays
#15. From Freedom is:
"True forgiveness is one of the most healing relasing, and freeing gifts we give to ourselves."

"You can't fake it (forgivenss). It has to come from an open heart. It has to be real. Otherwise it is pointless. In order to fruly forgive, you must be willing to open your heart and face and release the pain there."
"It requires humility. It requites us to give up our rightenous indignation, get off our soapbox, let go of blame, and le go of th pride of being right. It means we have to be willing to drop our victim story, soften our stance, and if necessary, let our heart be broken wide open." Brandon Bays Chapter 8 on forgiveness. #Quote by Brandon Bays
Forgiveness quotes by Niccolo Machiavelli
#16. Forgiveness proceeds from a generous soul. #Quote by Niccolo Machiavelli
Forgiveness quotes by Saim .A. Cheeda
#17. When you have a chance to forgive, think of all you'll gain and forget all you've lost. #Quote by Saim .A. Cheeda
Forgiveness quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#18. Forgiveness was work, Eduardo told victims' families
but so, then, was love, and deciding what was right, and defending it. Recusing yourself from judgment so you won't be tainted by the aggressor's sin is the same as turning away from empathy so you won't be touched by the victim's pain. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Forgiveness quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#19. I don't know if I'm ready,' Poppy protested. 'Why must I do it so soon? There's no time limit for forgiveness, is there?'
'Sometimes there is. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Forgiveness quotes by Linda Howard
#20. Milla was always aware, on the dimmest edge of her consciousness that Diaz constantly watched her.
She also knew that he was a man who never gave up, who never lost sight of his goal. Exactly what his goal was wasn't always clear to her, but she had no doubt he was perfectly clear in his own mind what he wanted.
He wanted her. She knew it, and yet she couldn't imagine how they could ever be together again. The rift between them, to her, was final and absolute. He'd betrayed her in the most wounding way possible, and forgiveness evidently wasn't her strong suit. She had found that grudges weren't heavy at all; she could carry them for a very long time.
Diaz wasn't taking care of her out of the goodness of his heart. He was taking care of her the way a wolf cared for its wounded mate. #Quote by Linda Howard
Forgiveness quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#21. Nursing a grudge only perpetuates the offender's power over you. He continues to live in your head, reinforcing your frustration, polluting your imagination with thoughts of getting even. Don't let him get away with that. He may or may not deserve forgiveness, but you deserve better than to waste your energy being angry at him. Letting go is the best revenge. Forgiveness is the identifying marker of the stronger party to the dispute. It is truly a favor you do yourself, not an undeserved gesture to the person who hurt you. Be kind to yourself and forgive. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Forgiveness quotes by Veronica Roth
#22. I understand why she did all those things, but that doesn't mean we aren't still broken. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Forgiveness quotes by George Eliot
#23. I know forgiveness is a man's duty, but, to my thinking, that can only mean as you're to give up all thoughts o' taking revenge: it can never mean as you're t' have your old feelings back again, for that's not possible. #Quote by George Eliot
Forgiveness quotes by Victoria Osteen
#24. Choosing forgiveness opens the door of your heart and makes way for a miracle in your life. #Quote by Victoria Osteen
Forgiveness quotes by Jason Versey
#25. Whenever we make a mistake or get knocked down by life, don't look back at it too long. Mistakes are life's way of teaching us. Our capacity for occasional blunders is inseparable from our capacity to reach our goals. Our failures, when they happen, are just part of our growth. Shake off your blunders. How will we know our limits without... the occasional failure? Never quit. Your turn will come. ~Jason Versey #Quote by Jason Versey
Forgiveness quotes by Debbie Ford
#26. The Toltec tradition tells us that we surrender a portion of our life force when we dwell on any unhealed wounding event from our past. The unprocessed emotions surrounding these events burden us and weigh heavily on our hearts. They must be dealt with if we want access to all of our vitality. Ultimately, what we will find is that forgiveness is the key to reclaiming all the life force locked in past hurt. #Quote by Debbie Ford
Forgiveness quotes by Lewis B. Smedes
#27. I have discovered that most people who tell me that they cannot forgive a person who wronged them are handicapped by a mistaken understanding of what forgiving is. #Quote by Lewis B. Smedes
Forgiveness quotes by Diana Killian
#28. But what? But it was just so much easier to deal with the old pain by ignoring it? Forgetting it? Andy's presence meant having to actively work at forgiving him, and that was hard. Forgetting was much easier than forgiving
forgiving was an on-going process that had to continue past the dramatic declarations of apology and absolution. #Quote by Diana Killian
Forgiveness quotes by Olivia Laing
#29. At some point, you have to set down the past. At some point, you have to accept that everyone was doing their best. At some point, you have to gather yourself up, and go onward into your life. #Quote by Olivia Laing
Forgiveness quotes by Alan Cohen
#30. Forgiveness doesn't make wrong things right. It remembers that what is right far outshines what is wrong. #Quote by Alan Cohen
Forgiveness quotes by Roberta Fish
#31. Forgiveness in no way requires you to trust the one you forgive. It doesn't mean the relationship must be restored. p. 61 #Quote by Roberta Fish
Forgiveness quotes by Bryan Chapell
#32. Forgiveness is the ocean that already surrounds us when we launch our prayers of repentance to God. We do not manufacture the ocean by our repentance; we sail in the peace its boundless waters provide. #Quote by Bryan Chapell
Forgiveness quotes by Alisha Rai
#33. What are you doing?"
"What does it look like? I'm getting down on my knees."
His head butted against her stomach. Her muscles clenched, shocked at the touch, even through the layer of cotton.
"I've never begged a woman for anything before. Enjoy this."
She tried to think of something sufficiently sassy. "Enjoy it? I can't even see it."
"It's symbolic. #Quote by Alisha Rai
Forgiveness quotes by Jennifer Ashley
#34. I loved and adored you, but I drained you like a thirsty man at a spring. I loved what you could give me - your admiration, your acceptance, your love, your forgiveness. I forgot to love you for yourself. #Quote by Jennifer Ashley
Forgiveness quotes by Jason Versey
#35. A dove will never nest in a burning tree, nor will love ever reside in unforgiving heart. #Quote by Jason Versey
Forgiveness quotes by Courtney C. Stevens
#36. Maybe forgiveness was giving the past less power to hurt me. Or even building new memories that were stronger than the painful ones. #Quote by Courtney C. Stevens
Forgiveness quotes by Jack Kornfield
#37. Life without forgiveness is unbearable. #Quote by Jack Kornfield
Forgiveness quotes by Hermione Daguin
#38. Why should I lessen your load while I suffer in silence? Why? If I forgive everybody, none of you would have anything else to worry about, no shame, no regrets, no nothing. What about me? I would still be suffering. So, hell to the no. I'm not giving anybody my forgiveness. If I'm suffering, you all have to suffer with me. #Quote by Hermione Daguin
Forgiveness quotes by Hwang Woo-suk
#39. I ask for your forgiveness. I feel so miserable that it's difficult even to say sorry. #Quote by Hwang Woo-suk
Forgiveness quotes by Marianne Williamson
#40. Enchanted partnership begins with the conscious understanding, on the part of two people, that the purpose of their relationship is not so much material as spiritual, and the internal skills demanded by it are prodigious. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Forgiveness quotes by Oscar Wilde
#41. The sin was mine; I did not understand. So now is music prisoned in her cave, Save where some ebbing desultory wave Frets with its restless whirls this meagre strand ... #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Forgiveness quotes by Tahereh Mafi
#42. I have never claimed to live by any set of principles," Warner says to me. "I've never claimed to be right, or good, or even justified in my actions. I have been forced to do terrible things in my life, love, and I am seeking neither your forgiveness nor your approval. Because I do not have the luxury of philosophizing over scruples when I'm forced to act on basic instinct every day. #Quote by Tahereh Mafi
Forgiveness quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#43. It hadn't escaped her notice that when she let him believe the worst of her, still he vowed to stand beside her and work toward forgiveness. #Quote by Elizabeth Camden
Forgiveness quotes by Cody W
#44. Don't ever say you are sorry for "being caught in the moment". Because, at that moment, that is EXACTLY where you wanted to be. #Quote by Cody W
Forgiveness quotes by TobyMac
#45. cause we all make mistakes sometimes, and we've all stepped across that line, but nothing's sweeter than the day we find forgiveness #Quote by TobyMac
Forgiveness quotes by Laura Frantz
#46. You're different than you used to be. A few months ago you wouldn't have followed me onto this porch." The compliment, if it was that, brought tears to her eyes. "I - I'm sorry for treating you so badly. I'm ashamed now of how I snubbed you - acted afraid of you - " "It's common enough." The admission startled her - made her feel grieved and defensive and tender toward him all at once. She longed to lay a reassuring hand on his sleeve but checked herself. There was no self-pity in his manner, only truth telling, and she sensed he didn't want her sympathy, just her friendship. And her forgiveness. "A half blood belongs to no one, red or white," he said. "You belong to God," she said softly. #Quote by Laura Frantz
Forgiveness quotes by Lynne Withey
#48. The custom of confession seemed designed to encourage sin by granting ready forgiveness.
Neither Abigail nor any member of her family ever wavered in their preference for life in America over life in Europe. In France they lived far grander style than they ever lived in Braintree. ...her unshakable belief was that America was superior to Europe - superiority based on simplicity, its supposed lack of extreme wealth and class distinctions, its religion and its emphasis on family #Quote by Lynne Withey
Forgiveness quotes by Leif Enger
#49. We beat the drum slowly and played the fife lowly,
and bitterly wept as we bore him along.
For we all loved our comrade so brave, young and handsome,
we all loved our comrade although he'd done wrong.
The Cowboy's Lament #Quote by Leif Enger
Forgiveness quotes by Simmone Howell
#50. But it was too late. I was down the steps and out the door, where the warm night air almost felt like forgiveness. #Quote by Simmone Howell
Forgiveness quotes by Charles Brent
#51. Peace comes when there is no cloud between us and God. Peace is the consequence of forgiveness, God's removal of that which obscures His face and so breaks union with Him. #Quote by Charles Brent
Forgiveness quotes by Richard Rohr
#52. The key to entering into the Divine Exchange is never our worthiness but always God's graciousness. Any attempt to measure or increase our worthiness will always fall short, or it will force us into the position of denial and pretend, which produces the constant perception of hypocrisy in religious people.
To switch to an "economy of grace" is a switch that is very hard for humans to make. We base almost everything in human culture on achievement, performance, accomplishment, an equal exchange value, or some kind of worthiness gauge. I call it meritocracy. Unless one personally experiences a dramatic and personal breaking of the rules of merit (forgiveness or undeserved goodness), it is almost impossible to disbelieve or operate outside of its rigid logic. This cannot happen theoretically or abstractly. It cannot happen "out there" but must be known personally "in here. #Quote by Richard Rohr
Forgiveness quotes by Andy Andrews
#53. We begin to forgive by choosing to forgive ... by deciding, not by feeling. Our feelings don't lead us to forgive. Most times, our feelings lead us the other way. That's why a person has to decide to forgive first. Our feelings always follow along behind our decisions. #Quote by Andy Andrews
Forgiveness quotes by Harold S. Kushner
#54. Forgiveness is not a matter of exonerating people who have hurt you. They may not deserve exoneration. Forgiveness means cleansing your soul of the bitterness of 'what might have been,' 'what should have been,' and 'what didn't have to happen.' Someone has defined forgiveness as 'giving up all hope of having had a better past.' What's past is past and there is little to be gained by dwelling on it. There are perhaps no sadder people then the men and women who have a grievance against the world because of something that happened years ago and have let that memory sour their view of life ever since. #Quote by Harold S. Kushner
Forgiveness quotes by MaryLu Tyndall
#55. I've come to realize revenge only causes more heartache. Forgiveness is better." He shifted his shoulders and smiled."Quite freeing, actually. #Quote by MaryLu Tyndall
Forgiveness quotes by Payne Hawthorne
#56. My past was nothing, my future was nothing, and I was nothing other than a quivering pile of useless flesh. He animated my corpse, cleansed my soul, and offered me forgiveness when I hadn't yet apologized. He took and took and took as he slid himself deeper and deeper into my body, penetrating my soul. When he finally left me, spent and waning, he'd taken away all of my hurt and despair and had replaced it with a longing to please and serve, love and worship, fuck and suck, cook and clean, whatever he wanted, I craved to be. This man was now so deeply inside me I had no idea where he ended and I began, and I knew this transformation was for eternity. I was finally complete. ~Payne Hawthorne #Quote by Payne Hawthorne
Forgiveness quotes by Debasish Mridha
#57. You may not be able to find peace until you create it inside your forgiving mind. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Forgiveness quotes by Sarah Beth Durst
#58. Don't confuse mercy for forgiveness. #Quote by Sarah Beth Durst
Forgiveness quotes by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
#59. Everything I am longing for - peace of mind, contentment, grace, the inner awareness of my abundance - will surely be mine... when I am prepared to receive ALL with an open and Thankful heart. #Quote by Raymond D. Longoria Jr.
Forgiveness quotes by Rachel Hartman
#60. How could he forgive her if he didn't know she'd wronged him? How could she assuage her guilt without his forgiveness? #Quote by Rachel Hartman
Forgiveness quotes by Zadie Smith
#61. (and Catholics give out forgiveness at about the same rate as politicians give out promises and whores give out) #Quote by Zadie Smith
Forgiveness quotes by Philip Chard
#62. Higher states of consciousness correlate strongly with attributes like compassion, forgiveness, generosity and kindness. The more one is self-aware and other-aware, and the greater one's connection with the spiritual, the more likely one will be a force for good in our world. #Quote by Philip Chard
Forgiveness quotes by B.M. Hardin
#63. Forgiveness is so powerful. You give a person so much power over you when you are unable to let go and simply forgive. #Quote by B.M. Hardin
Forgiveness quotes by Catherine Ponder
#64. Forgiveness is all-powerful. Forgiveness heals all ills. #Quote by Catherine Ponder
Forgiveness quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#65. There is a saying that to understand is to forgive, but that is an error, so Papa used to say. You must forgive in order to understand. Until you forgive, you defend yourself against the possibility of understanding ... If you forgive, he would say, you may indeed still not understand, but you will be ready to understand, and that is the posture of grace. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Forgiveness quotes by Lailah Gifty Akita
#66. Confess your sins. God will cleanse you of all the wrongs done. #Quote by Lailah Gifty Akita
Forgiveness quotes by Marianne Williamson
#67. Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness. #Quote by Marianne Williamson
Forgiveness quotes by Alexander Pope
#68. Good-nature and good-sense must ever join;
To err is human, to forgive, divine. #Quote by Alexander Pope
Forgiveness quotes by Christene Houston
#69. I guess we'll never know exactly what ... the reasons behind the losses we experience in this life. But being angry doesn't make them any less devastating. It only robs us of the happiness and love we can experience. Only forgiveness can set us free. #Quote by Christene Houston
Forgiveness quotes by C. John Miller
#70. Suppose you have shown a lot of mercy to someone. But they haven't ever thanked you or acknowledged what you have done. When that happens to me, my instinct is to want to choke that person. But when you know God's mercy to you in Christ, when you know the forgiveness of sins, your hands are so full of God's good gifts of mercy and grace that you don't have a hand free to choke anyone. #Quote by C. John Miller
Forgiveness quotes by Jeanette Winterson
#71. There are only three possible endings - aren't there? - to any story: revenge, tragedy or forgiveness. That's it. All stories end like that. #Quote by Jeanette Winterson
Forgiveness quotes by Paulo Coelho
#73. Break a pact. Accept forgiveness. Make a bet. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Forgiveness quotes by Stephanie Kuehn
#74. But maybe he'd always known. Maybe the cool winds of fate and the flag-snap flutter of destiny had always been there, tickling his spine, whispering in his ear it's gonna catch up with you boy one of these days the truth'll come back so you'd better go go go, until finally, Emerson couldn't help but listen. There was only so much ruin the mind could rationalize. There was only so much badness that could be suppressed for so long. His guilt, on its own, was utterly meaningless - just a showy type of magic that changed nothing because changing nothing was the endgame all along. Words like absolution and forgiveness and redemption would never apply to someone like him. Those terms were just abstractions. Names for what other people called the moments between darkness. #Quote by Stephanie Kuehn
Forgiveness quotes by Jarod Kintz
#75. This year I vow to learn how to garden. I will be the Farmer of Love and grow in understanding and forgiveness. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Forgiveness quotes by Gary Zukav
#76. You are only as powerful as that for which you stand. Do you stand for more money in the bank and a bigger house? Do you stand for an attractive mate? Do you stand for imposing your way of thinking upon others? These are the stands of the personality seeking to satisfy its wants. Do you stand for perfection, for the beauty and compassion of each soul? Do you stand for forgiveness and humbleness? These are the stands of the personality that has aligned itself with its soul. This is the position of a truly powerful Personality. #Quote by Gary Zukav
Forgiveness quotes by C. JoyBell C.
#77. People withhold their forgiveness, thinking that it makes them badass. But really, the unwillingness to forgive is merely the wishing that things were better. You wish that you had better, you wish that someone else were better so they could have treated you better ... it's you making wishes. And that's not badass. To forgive is to be able to look at the person and say "I accept that you weren't any better than what you were", "I accept what you were you and couldn't have been what I wished you to be", "I accept that things were the way they were and weren't any better." The ability to forgive is intertwined with the ability to accept the reality of the way things are/ the way a person is or was. You stop wishing things and you just accept. And hope is what says to you: "One day you'll have what's better. #Quote by C. JoyBell C.
Forgiveness quotes by Sally Lloyd-Jones
#78. But Jesus could see inside people. And inside, in their hearts, Jesus saw that they did not love God or other people. They were running away from God, and they thought they didn't need a rescuer. They thought they were good enough because they kept the rules. But sin had stopped their hearts from working properly. And their hearts were hard and cold.
"This woman knows she's a sinner," Jesus told them. "She knows she'll never be good enough. She knows she needs me to rescue her. That's why she loves me so much. You look down on this woman because you don't look up to God. She is sinful on the outside-but you are sinful on the inside. #Quote by Sally Lloyd-Jones
Forgiveness quotes by Ivan Figueroa-Otero
#79. God made us to contaminate his creation with a Love Epidemic. Whom have you contaminated today? #Quote by Ivan Figueroa-Otero
Forgiveness quotes by Ethan, Bite-Book 1
#80. Sometimes, we need to commit mistakes and ask for forgiveness later. #Quote by Ethan, Bite-Book 1
Forgiveness quotes by Mary Jane Hathaway
#81. Her face crumpled and he felt her pain as if it was his own. He wanted to take it back, but just like that memory, it was always going to be there.
She worked to get control over her features, then said, "I'm sorry I didn't defend you. I'm sorry I didn't tell them you were my guest."
Jem hadn't thought he cared anymore, not really, but her words were tugging loose the hard, painful knot in his chest. "It's okay."
She shook her head. "It's not. It wasn't."
He reached out and cupped her cheek in his hand. He didn't know what else to say and all he wanted was to touch her skin, let her know that he wasn't that boy anymore and that she wasn't that girl. #Quote by Mary Jane Hathaway
Forgiveness quotes by Jase Robertson
#82. I remember meeting a man who gave sex seminars to students at various college campuses. To get people to come he passed out flyers that were entitled "How to Have the Best Sex on Earth." Of course, his lecture attracted a huge turnout. He spoke about sex between two virgins on their wedding night being disease-free, guilt-free, comparison-free, and shame-free, as well as being pleasing to God. It is the best sex you can have on earth. He explained that many people fall short and that is why Jesus died on a cross. In Christ anyone can start over. As 1 Corinthians 6:9--11 says: "The sexually immoral…will [not] inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed…sanctified…[and] justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." The forgiveness found in Christ doesn't take away from the fact that God's way is always the best way for a marriage and our world. Hebrews 13:4 says: "Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure." That is exactly what Missy and I did. #Quote by Jase Robertson
Forgiveness quotes by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
#83. I have spent my whole life preparing to be William Wallace's wife. The choices I make are defined by the person I am.
I am Mrs. William Victor Wallace. I am married to a federal felon whom I love unconditionally.
I hold my head high, I take pride in my life and I walk this world without regret.
I will be the perfect wife and my husband deserves nothing less. #Quote by Deirdre-Elizabeth Parker
Forgiveness quotes by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
#84. As long as we love, we can forgive. #Quote by Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Forgiveness quotes by Jennifer DuBois
#85. The way to assure morality on Earth was not to behave as though there was a God, even if there wasn't - it was to behave as though there was no God, even if there was. We must act as though ours is all the judgment and forgiveness that is ever forthcoming, if we want any hope of getting anything right. #Quote by Jennifer DuBois
Forgiveness quotes by Catherynne M Valente
#86. Listen, everything is possible in here. You can burn every spinning wheel in the kingdom. You can cut your hair before he ever gets the chance to climb up. It is possible to decline the beanstalk. You can let the old witch dance at your wedding, hand out the kind of forgiveness that would wake the dead and sleeping. You can just walk away, get on a horse, and go wake some other maiden from her narrative coffin, if you're brave, if you're strong. What do you want? Do you want to escape? Or were you looking for that candy house? #Quote by Catherynne M Valente
Forgiveness quotes by Jacques Derrida
#87. These two poles, the unconditional and the conditional, are absolutely heterogeneous, and must remain irreducible to one another. They are nonetheless indissociable: if one wants, and it is necessary, forgiveness to become effective, concrete, historic; if one wants it to arrive, to happen by changing things, it is necessary that this purity engage itself in a series of conditions of all kinds (psychosociological, political, etc.). It is between these two poles, irreconcilable but indissociable, that decisions and responsibilities are to be taken. Yet despite all the confusions which reduce forgiveness to amnesty or to amnesia, to acquittal or prescription, to the work of mourning or some political therapy of reconciliation, in short to some historical ecology, it must never be forgotten, nevertheless, that all of that refers to a certain idea of pure and unconditional forgiveness, without which this discourse would not have the least meaning. What complicates the question of 'meaning' is again what I suggested a moment ago: pure and unconditional forgiveness, in order to have its own meaning, must have no 'meaning', no finality, even no intelligibility. It is a madness of the impossible. #Quote by Jacques Derrida
Forgiveness quotes by Zara D. Green
#88. Here's the truth: It is not Grown to expect a relationship to provide what you are not committed to providing for yourself. The capacity for others to love you can never exceed the love you demonstrate for yourself. Furthermore, you don't attract what you want in relationships, but what you are. So if you want financial security in a relationship, you need to commit to providing that for yourself. If tender, loving treatment is what you desire, then you should be giving that to yourself as a single person. If you seek forgiveness, compassion and emotional safety in a relationship, you must be committed to requiring that of yourself in single life. If you want a relationship rich with fun, joy and adventure, then that is exactly the life you should be pursuing as a single person. On the other hand, if you are desperate and unhappy as a single person, you are neither qualified nor prepared for a healthy relationship and you will attract and choose anything but. #Quote by Zara D. Green
Forgiveness quotes by Thomas Merton
#89. God has left sin in the world in order that there may be forgiveness: not only the secret forgiveness by which He Himself cleanses our souls, but the manifest forgiveness by which we have mercy on one another and so give expression to the fact that He is living, by His mercy, in our own hearts. #Quote by Thomas Merton
Forgiveness quotes by Joseph Prince
#90. His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God's forgiveness is not given in installments. #Quote by Joseph Prince
Forgiveness quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#91. Youth, which is forgiven everything, forgives itself nothing: age, which forgives itself everything, is forgiven nothing. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Forgiveness quotes by Philip Yancey

Forgiveness quotes by Jodi Picoult
#94. You heard form Jacob these days?"
"No, which is the way I wish it to be," Aaron said quietly.
Ephram shook his head. "He was banned from the Church, Aaron. Not from your life."
"They're the same to me."
"That's the thing I don't understand, you know. Since forgiveness is the very first rule." -Plain Truth #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Forgiveness quotes by John Steinbeck
#95. He bathed in icy water and scrubbed and scratched his body with a block of pumice stone, and the pain
of his scraping seemed good to him. He knew that he had to tell his guilt to his father and beg his forgiveness. And he had to humble himself to Aron, not only now but always. He could not live without that. And yet, when he was called out and stood in the room with Sheriff Quinn and his father, he was as raw and angry as a surly dog and his hatred of himself turned outward toward everyone - a vicious cur he was, unloved, unloving. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Forgiveness quotes by Katherine Applegate
#96. I think that in many ways, just as forgiveness is impossible without love, sometimes love requires forgiveness for it to work, too. #Quote by Katherine Applegate
Forgiveness quotes by Monika Basile
#97. When we take too long to forgive the people we love, we can sometimes be too damn late for it to matter. #Quote by Monika Basile
Forgiveness quotes by Leonard Pitts Jr.
#98. Trying to get stuff straight right at the end when you never cared all through your life. Trying to get into heaven on the affirmative action plan. #Quote by Leonard Pitts Jr.

Forgiveness quotes by Joan Lunden

Forgiveness quotes by Lewis B. Smedes
#107. Gandhi was right: if we all live by 'an eye for an eye' the whole world will be blind. The only way out is forgiveness. #Quote by Lewis B. Smedes
Forgiveness quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#108. Wrongs are often forgiven, but contempt never is. Our pride remembers it forever. It implies a discovery of weakness, which we are more careful to conceal than a crime. Many a man will confess his crimes to a friend; but I never knew a man that would tell his silly weaknesses to his most intimate one. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield
Forgiveness quotes by Jeffrey Bell
#109. One of the things that Dostoevsky talks about is that no character is too high to fall and no character is too low to be redeemed. 'Crime and Punishment' began with a person going out and consciously becoming a cold-blooded murderer, and it took 800 pages and an epilogue before the person finally asked for forgiveness. #Quote by Jeffrey Bell
Forgiveness quotes by Becky Chambers
#110. And worst of all, we knew this could happen. We've been impotently worrying about what a solar flare could do to electronic infrastructure since the 1900s. But my generation was so preoccupied with fixing the mess left by the unaddressed-and-fully-known-about environmental disaster of the previous generation that we committed the same sin of criminal procrastination against yours. I ask no forgiveness for this, because we deserve none. #Quote by Becky Chambers
Forgiveness quotes by Laurie Buchanan
#111. Each of us at some time will need to extend forgiveness to someone for something they did or failed to do. And each of us at some time will need to receive forgiveness for something that we did or failed to do. #Quote by Laurie Buchanan
Forgiveness quotes by Priya Parmar
#112. But to begin again? No, Virginia. There can be no beginning again. Love and forgiveness are not the same thing. #Quote by Priya Parmar
Forgiveness quotes by Richie Norton
#113. One does not need to apologize for you to forgive them...but a sincere, reverent and "as loud as the disrespect" apology may repair trust faster. Remember that when you apologize yourself. #Quote by Richie Norton
Forgiveness quotes by R.C. Sproul
#114. The chief difference between the believer and the unbeliever is forgiveness. The only thing that qualifies a person to be a minister in the name of Christ is that that person has experienced forgiveness and wants to tell of it to others. #Quote by R.C. Sproul
Forgiveness quotes by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
#115. Most of us are painfully aware that we're not perfect parents. We're also deeply grieved that we don't have perfect kids. But the remedy to our mutual imperfections isn't more law, even if it seems to produce tidy or polite children. Christian children (and their parents) don't need to learn to be "nice." They need death and resurrection and a Savior who has gone before them as a faithful high priest, who was a child himself, and who lived and died perfectly in their place. They need a Savior who extends the offer of complete forgiveness, total righteousness, and indissoluble adoption to all who will believe. This is the message we all need. We need the gospel of grace and the grace of the gospel. Children can't use the law any more than we can, because they will respond to it the same way we do. They'll ignore it or bend it or obey it outwardly for selfish purposes, but this one thing is certain: they won't obey it from the heart, because they can't. That's why Jesus had to die. #Quote by Elyse M. Fitzpatrick
Forgiveness quotes by Will Davis Jr.
#116. Pride and entitlement always go with unforgiveness. The longer you hold someone's offense over them, the more likely you are to start feeling arrogant and entitled to your posture toward him. #Quote by Will Davis Jr.

#117. Forgive someone today. Especially if that someone is you. #Quote by Gina Greenlee
Forgiveness quotes by Sergei Lukyanenko
#118. Forgiving was the hardest thing. Sometimes forgiving was the hardest thing in the whole world. #Quote by Sergei Lukyanenko
Forgiveness quotes by Isabel Lopez
#119. I eventually came to understand that in harboring the anger, the bitterness and resentment towards those that had hurt me, I was giving the reins of control over to them. Forgiving was not about accepting their words and deeds. Forgiving was about letting go and moving on with my life. In doing so, I had finally set myself free. #Quote by Isabel Lopez
Forgiveness quotes by Charlena E.  Jackson
#120. Forgiveness allows us to develop self-discipline and helps us to let go of toxic attachments to people, places, materials things, or even ourselves. It helps us to inherit and visualize how to focus on the effort. #Quote by Charlena E. Jackson
Forgiveness quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#121. We cannot simply forgive and forget, nor should we. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg

Forgiveness quotes by Oscar Auliq-Ice
#123. We need to cultivate a sense of universal responsibility for one another and the planet we share. True happiness comes from a sense of brotherhood and sisterhood, but not from hatred and division. #Quote by Oscar Auliq-Ice
Forgiveness quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#124. It is right that man should love those who have offended him. He will do so when he remembers that all men are his relations, and that it is through ignorance and involuntarily that they sin,
and then we all die so soon. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Forgiveness quotes by James Runcie
#125. God's grace comes first. His love is prevenient to our response;his forgiveness awakens our repentance. #Quote by James Runcie

Forgiveness quotes by Parker J. Palmer
#127. I believe in democracy - in its indisputable achievements and its unfulfilled promise. I believe in American political institutions - in the genius inherent in their design and in the undeniable good they have done when put to their best use. I believe in the power of the human heart - in its capacity for truth and justice, love and forgiveness. #Quote by Parker J. Palmer

Forgiveness quotes by Bill Bright
#130. Fasting with a pure heart and motives, I have discovered, brings personal revival and adds power to our prayers. Personal revival occurs because fasting is an act of humility. Fasting gives opportunity for deeper humility as we recognize our sins, repent, receive God's forgiveness, and experience His cleansing of our soul and spirit. Fasting also demonstrates our love for God and our full confidence in His faithfulness. #Quote by Bill Bright
Forgiveness quotes by Dan Brown
#131. We are creators, and yet we naively play the role of "the created." We see ourselves as helpless sheep buffeted around by the God who made us. We kneel like frightened children, begging for help, for forgiveness, for good luck. But once we realize that we are truly created in the Creator's image, we will start to understand that we, too, must be Creators. When we understand this fact, the doors will burst wide open for human potential. #Quote by Dan Brown
Forgiveness quotes by Gilbert K. Chesterton
#132. This is, first and last, the real value of Christmas; in so far as the mythology remains at all it is a kind of happy mythology. Personally, of course, I believe in Santa Claus; but it is the season of forgiveness, and I will forgive others for not doing so. #Quote by Gilbert K. Chesterton
Forgiveness quotes by Tommy Wallach
#133. Red Rover, Red Rover, send Ardor right over," Eliza said. They laughed. The asteroid was a little bigger now, brighter, and still they went on laughing. Laughing in the face of what they couldn't predict or change or control. Would it be fire and brimstone? Would it be Armageddon? Or would it be a second chance? Eliza held tight to her friends, laughing, and a pair of hands land soft as feathers on her shoulders, like the hands of a ghost, laughing and laughing as Ardor swept along its fated course, laughing and through that laughter, praying. Praying for forgiveness. Praying for grace. Praying for mercy.

Forgiveness quotes by David A. Cooper
#137. A spiritual retreat is medicine for soul starvation. Through silence, solitary practice, and simple living, we begin to fill the empty reservoir. This lifts the veils, dissolves the masks, and creates space within for the feelings of forgiveness, compassion, and loving kindness that are so often blocked. #Quote by David A. Cooper

#144. At the time, I didn't know what forgiveness meant. I wouldn't really know what forgiveness meant for another year, until my pastor, Rick McKinley, happened to spell it out in a sermon.

Forgiveness quotes by David S. Baxter
#151. The gospel teaches us that though we may have lost a battle or two, the war is not yet over. With the Lord's help and the hope of the gospel, we can win out in the end. Truth ultimately triumphs over falsehood. Evil is overwhelmed by goodness. Sin, however extreme it may have been, can give way to cleansing and refreshing forgiveness. This is the great hope of the gospel, centered as it is in the life, mission and atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. #Quote by David S. Baxter
Forgiveness quotes by Bill Whitehouse
#152. Forgiveness is more than words ... it is a state of being, and if forgiveness is to be anything more than a superficial offering, then, psychological, emotional, and spiritual ground must be cleared in order that the act of forgiveness may be properly rooted, and, therefore, lasting. #Quote by Bill Whitehouse
Forgiveness quotes by Sivananda
#153. Ahimsa is not mere negative non-injury. It is positive, cosmic love. It is the development of a mental attitude in which hatred is replaced by love. Ahimsa is true sacrifice. Ahimsa is forgiveness. Ahimsa is Sakti (power). Ahimsa is true strength. #Quote by Sivananda

Forgiveness quotes by Bear Grylls
#169. To me, my Christian faith is all about being held, comforted, forgiven, strengthened, and loved
yet somehow that message gets lost on most of us, and we tend only to remember the religious nutters or the God of endless school assemblies. This is no one's fault, it is just life. Our job is to stay open and gentle, so we can hear the knocking on the door of our heart when it comes. The irony is that I never meet anyone who doesn't want to be loved or held or forgiven. Yet I meet a lot of folk who hate religion. And I so sympathize. But so did Jesus. In fact, He didn't just sympathize, He went much further. It seems more like this Jesus came to destroy religion and to bring life. #Quote by Bear Grylls

Forgiveness quotes by John James Ingalls
#173. Grass is the forgiveness of nature-her constant benediction. Fields trampled with battle, saturated with blood, torn with the ruts of cannon, grow green again with grass and carnage is forgotten. Streets abandoned by traffic become grass-grown, like rural lanes and are obliterated. Forests decay, harvests perish, flowers vanish, but grass is immortal. #Quote by John James Ingalls

Forgiveness quotes by Daniel Defoe
#175. A near View of Death would soon reconcile Men of good Priciples one to another, and that it is chiefly owing to our easy Scituation in Life, and our putting these Things far from us, that our Breaches are formented, ill Blood continued, Prejudices, Breach of Charity and of Christian Union so much kept and so far carry'd on among us, as it is: Another Plague Year would reconcile all these Differences, a close conversing with Death, or the Diseases that threaten Death, would scum off the Gall from our Tempers, remove the Animosities among us, and bring us to see with differing Eyes, than those which we look'd on Things with before #Quote by Daniel Defoe
Forgiveness quotes by John Climacus
#176. Forgetting offences is a sign of sincere repentance. If you keep the memory of them, you may believe you have repented but you are like someone running in his sleep. Let no one consider it a minor defect, this darkness that often clouds the eyes even of spiritual people. #Quote by John Climacus
Forgiveness quotes by William Penn
#177. Force may subdue, but love gains, and he that forgives first wins the laurel. #Quote by William Penn
Forgiveness quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#178. I find something repulsive about the idea of vicarious redemption. I would not throw my numberless sins onto a scapegoat and expect them to pass from me; we rightly sneer at the barbaric societies that practice this unpleasantness in its literal form. There's no moral value in the vicarious gesture anyway. As Thomas Paine pointed out, you may if you wish take on a another man's debt, or even to take his place in prison. That would be self-sacrificing. But you may not assume his actual crimes as if they were your own; for one thing you did not commit them and might have died rather than do so; for another this impossible action would rob him of individual responsibility. So the whole apparatus of absolution and forgiveness strikes me as positively immoral, while the concept of revealed truth degrades the concept of free intelligence by purportedly relieving us of the hard task of working out the ethical principles for ourselves. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Forgiveness quotes by Sarah Jessica Parker
#179. Can you really forgive if you can't forget? #Quote by Sarah Jessica Parker
Forgiveness quotes by Hazrat Inayat Khan
#180. His constant fight is with the Nafs (self-interest), the root of all disharmony and the only enemy of man. By crushing this enemy man gains mastery over himself; this wins for him mastery over the whole universe, because the wall standing between the self and the Almighty has been broken down. Gentleness, mildness, respect, humility, modesty, self-denial, conscientiousness, tolerance and forgiveness are considered by the Sufi as the attributes which produce harmony within one's own soul as well as within that of another. #Quote by Hazrat Inayat Khan
Forgiveness quotes by I. Alan Appt
#181. Quotations from



Convey to others more compassion, sensitivity, understanding rather than judgementalism"

To find pity shall enable forgiveness to surface

There are good bones in everyone's body, what varies are the number

Cause and effect from the very smallest act by one individual can change mankind for all time

Devastation can be a reward, and a path to regeneration

Emotions May Inhibit our Ability to Find Peace

One must conquer One's insensitivity to sensitivity

True peace maintains strength and calm in the face of discord and tension

Wisdom is not guranteed to be achieved with age but rather realized with ones sensitiviy to man and the universe

Opposites create duality. The ego creates opposites. Therefore, the ego creates duality

One should not permit his or her life path to be influenced by the expectations of others.

Doubt is the archenemy of the purity of thought and it inhibits the
essence of all that is

Our, emotions and perceptions determine our attitudes and ultimately our choices

Don't do it later; do it now.

True love is unconditional and everlasting and it cannot cease.

Reframing from negative speech is a path to reduction of negative thought

#182. Enough rationalization. They simply had what you wanted, so you took it.

You shit more than just your chair.

You shit the world. All you ever cared about was winning -- And you did.

The last man standing on a mountain of filth [. . .]

Kazumi taught forgiveness. She accepted all refugees looking for a better life. And you turned that against her.

Kazumi would show mercy.

Forgiveness quotes by Dieter F. Uchtdorf
#185. Satan tries to counterfeit the work of God, and by doing this, he may deceive many. To make us lose hope, feel miserable like himself, and believe that we are beyond forgiveness, Satan might even misuse words from the scriptures that emphasize the justice of God in order to imply that there is no mercy. #Quote by Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Forgiveness quotes by Foundation For Inner Peace
#190. Forgiveness offers everything I want. What could you want forgiveness cannot give? Do you want peace? Forgiveness offers it. Do you want happiness, a quiet mind, a certainty of purpose, and a sense of worth and beauty that transcends the world? Do you want care and safety, and the warmth of sure protection always? Do you want a quietness that cannot be disturbed, a gentleness that never can be hurt, a deep abiding comfort, and a rest so perfect it can never be upset? All this forgiveness offers you, and more. It sparkles on your eyes as you awake, and gives you joy with which to meet the day. It soothes your forehead while you sleep, and rests upon your eyelids so you see no dreams of fear and evil, malice and attack. And when you wake again, it offers you another day of happiness and peace. #Quote by Foundation For Inner Peace
Forgiveness quotes by Kim Holden
#191. For me, I can't understand something unless I've experienced it and I tend to be very judgmental by nature. But, it's very telling when you see the world from the other side of the lens because it opens the door to self-discovery. Perspective changes everything. I prefer empathy to sympathy if I have a choice. That's where the research comes in. I've packed a lot of life into the past few years trying to understand people and situations. Trying to make sense of my life. I have a lot to work through. My past is something that requires introspection and forgiveness. And that takes time. Research. When I feel like I've learned something about myself and grown as a person, I move on to the next journey. Hopefully with new perspective. #Quote by Kim Holden

Forgiveness quotes by Tirmidhi
#195. Abu'd-Darda' (may Allah be pleased with him) said, "I heard the Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace), say, 'Allah will make the path to the Garden easy for anyone who travels a path in search of knowledge. Angels spread their wings for the seeker of knowledge out of pleasure for what he is doing. Everyone in the heavens and everyone in the earth ask forgiveness for a man of knowledge, even the fish in the water. The superiority of the man of knowledge to the man of worship is like the superiority of the moon to all the planets. The men of knowledge are the heirs of the Prophets. The Prophets bequeath neither dinar nor dirham; they bequeath knowledge. Whoever takes it has taken an ample portion.'" [Related by Abu Dawud and Tirmidhi; Riyad al-Salihin: 1388] #Quote by Tirmidhi
