12 quotes on Forgiveness That Can Help You To Free Yourself From Bondage

How strong are you-

You heal yourself when you forgive.

To forgive others is great but to forgive yourself is even greater. Don’t let what happen in the past keep you from living your best life today.

  1. The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. –Mahatma Gandhi
  1. 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
  1. When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free. –Catherine Ponder

  1. We think that forgiveness is weakness, but it’s absolutely not; it takes a very strong person to forgive. –TD. Jakes
  2. Sincere forgiveness isn’t colored with expectations that the other person apologize or change. Don’t worry whether or not they finally understand you. Love them and release them. Life feeds back truth to people in its own way and time. –Sara Paddison
  1. I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note – torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one. –Henry Ward Beecher

  1. There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love. –Bryant H. McGill
  1. The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbour as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves. –Eric Hoffer
  1. We read that we ought to forgive our enemies; but we do not read that we ought to forgive our friends. –Sir Francis Bacon
  1. To forgive is the highest, most beautiful form of love. In return, you will receive untold peace and happiness. –Robert Muller

To hold on to grudges only weakens you not to whom you are holding it against.

IT IS POSSIBLE TO GO BEYOND LIMITATIONS. IT MAY NOT BE EASY, BUT IT IS POSSIBLE.

  1. Thank you for another great post, Richard! 🙂
    I think forgiveness is one of the most important things in life and maybe the most powerful healer.
    All the quotes from this post are great but the third one it caught my attention and I totally agree with Catherine.
    I was thinking many times about this but maybe I couldn’t find the right words to express it.
    Thank you again! 🙂

    • Thanks Anna and I appreciate you sharing you thought with me .and I love how you say it, “forgiveness is one of the most important things in life and maybe the most powerful healer.” Have a bless one.

  2. There have been certain situations in my life where I have resisted forgiveness and do to this day. Numerous emotions are at play, seemingly justifying that resistance and it seems that forgiveness is one of the most difficult life situations to come to terms with, especially because of the strong emotions that are involved…frustration, anger, resignation.

    Your insight here gives me reason for reflection in this regard Richard. Thank you.

    • Thanks Don for sharing your honesty here. Yes, forgiving can be hard and as you stated – “…because of the strong emotions that are involved”. Each time I share something on forgiveness it gives me a chance also to look within myself. Have a bless one!
