If we really want to love, we must learn how to forgive.

The freedom to be at peace in our own skins - that's what forgiveness allows. We relinquish this freedom when we hold onto anger and resentment.

~ Naomi Drew

Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
~ Saint Augustine

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.
He that cannot forgive others, breaks the bridge over which he himself must pass if he would ever reach heaven; for everyone has need to be forgiven.
~ George Herbert
