To err is human; to forgive, infrequent.
more Franklin P. Adams quotes
No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.
more Aesop quotes
Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength.
more Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton quotes
Absolute justice is achieved by the suppression of all contradiction, therefore it destroys freedom.
more Albert Camus quotes
Never make a defence or apology before you be accused.
more Charles I quotes
Most of our faults are more pardonable than the means we use to conceal them.
more François Duc de La Rochefoucauld quotes
I should, indeed, prefer twenty men to escape death through mercy, than one innocent to be condemned unjustly.
more Sir John Fortescue quotes
It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.
more Mahatma Mohandas K. Gandhi quotes
The only vice that can not be forgiven is hypocrisy.
more William Hazlitt quotes
The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor 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.
more Eric Hoffer quotes
I know it will give great offence to the New England clergy, but the advocate of religious freedom is to expect neither peace nor forgiveness from them.
more Thomas Jefferson quotes
But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
more Jesus of Nazareth quotes
Forgive your enemies, but never forget their names.
more John F. Kennedy quotes
Forgive, but never forget.
more John F. Kennedy quotes
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
more Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. quotes
Forgiving releases you from the punishment of a self-made prison where you are both the inmate and the jailer.
more Howard Martin quotes
Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another's control... to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else's nightmare.
more Lance Morrow quotes
Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself.
more Harriet Nelson quotes
Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
more St. Peter quotes
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
more Plato quotes
A liberal society stands on the proposition that we should all take seriously the idea that we might be wrong. This means we must place no one, including ourselves, beyond the reach of criticism (no final say); it means that we must allow people to err, even where the error offends and upsets, as it often will.
more Jonathan Rauch quotes
Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure.
more William Saroyan quotes
Some mistakes cannot be redeemed but by forgiveness.
more Eric Schaub quotes
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.
more Lewis Smedes quotes
There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. There is a certain class of race-problem solvers who don't want the patient to get well.
