Forgiveness Quotes


So many people believe that forgiveness is something that others must accept. That is not so. Forgiveness is a gift to yourself, not to someone else. It allows you to move on, knowing that you’re not perfect. No one is. Forgiveness quotes help us see the importance of using our gift of forgiveness in every part of our lives, for when we wrong others or for then they wrong us. It is the ultimate exercise of freedom, knowing that the very act of forgiveness – as long as it is genuine – is enough. Forgiveness quotes show us all too well that we are really forgiving ourselves as much as we are forgiving those around us. Reference.com Definition of Forgiveness
