lies in your ability to forgive yourself.

that are done to you in sand,
but write the good things that happen to you
on a piece of marble.

Inner peace can be reached
only when we practice forgiveness.
Forgiveness is the letting go of the past,
and is therefore the means
for correcting our misperceptions.

He who cannot forgive others
destroys a bridge over which he must pass himself.
For every man has a need to be forgiven.

It is very east to forgive others their mistakes;
it takes more grit and gumption to forgive them
for having witnessed your own.

To err is human;
to forgive, divine.

than to forgive a friend.

You cannot get ahead while you are getting even.

When I was a boy of fourteen,
my father was so ignorant I could
hardly stand to have the old man around.
But, when I got to be twenty-one,
I was astonished at how much
he had learned in seven years.
