The Power of Forgiveness

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.  Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.  (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

The weak can never forgive.  Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.  (Mahatma Gandhi)

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.  (Marianne Williamson)

The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive, but do not forget.  (Thomas Szasz)

When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future.  (Bernard Meltzer)

Forgiveness is for yourself because it frees you.  It lets you out of that prison you put yourself in.  (Louise L. Hay)

    Forgive and forget. To move forward with life it is easier if we can figure…even tho it is not an easy thing often and sometimes it might take time to come to this decision. Thanks Lynn for sharing.
