“I can forgive, but I cannot forget,” is only another way of saying “I will not forgive.” A forgiveness ought to be like a canceled note, torn in two and burned up, so that it never can be shown against the man.

Great souls forgive not injuries till time has put their enemies within their power, that they may show forgiveness is their own.

The "morphogenic" relationship of eternity to time is not to be thought of as sequential. Moreover, eternity being by definition outside or beyond temporality, transcendent of all categories, whether of virtue or of reason (being and nonbeing, unity and multiplicity, love and justice, forgiveness and wrath), the term and concept "God" is itself but a metaphor of the unknowing mind, connotative, not only beyond itself, but beyond thought... metaphors are equivalent as alternative signs of the high mystical experience of an absorption of mortal appearance in immortal being; for which another historical figure of speech is the "End of the World."

The forgiveness of the world can only be accomplished by the judgment of the world.

Without forgiveness life is governed by… an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.

When I am able to resist the temptation to judge others, I can see them as teachers of forgiveness in my life, reminding me that I can only have peace of mind when I forgive rather than judge.

Let forgiveness be the substitute for fear. This is the only rule for happy dreams.

Fear binds the world. Forgiveness sets it free.

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
