~George Herbert~ Forgiveness quotes
"Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another's control... to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else's nightmare."
“When a deep injury is done us, we never recover until we forgive.”
"Only after we can learn to forgive ourselves
can we accept others as they are
because we don't feel threatened
by anything about them which is better than us."

"Forgiveness is the release of all hope for a better past."
"Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life."
~Joan Lunden~ Forgiveness quotes
