Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
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
Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.
–William Arthur Ward
The man who forgives is far stronger than the man who fights.
