61 Forgiveness Quotes

Let these forgiveness quotes remind us that we should forgive others. And, also to forgive ourselves. When you don't offer forgiveness you most times end up harming yourself more than anyone else. Life is too short to carry a grudge or to stay angry, forgiveness releases a peace within yourself.

You may feel disappointed or hurt, but it will only fester within yourself if you do not forgive.
