There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness. Josh Billings (1818-1885)

We often think of forgiveness as a gift to the other person when it clearly is for ourselves.

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

Forgiveness is the fragrance a rose gives off when it is trampled underfoot.
