Forgiveness Quotes and Sayings

Published by Remez Sasson

What Is Forgiveness?
It is the ability to let go of resentment and anger, and of unpleasant memories and emotions concerning people and past events.

Forgiveness means letting light and happiness fill your life, instead of hurt feelings, resentment and anger. It requires that you rise above your ego and petty considerations, and show mercy, compassion and lack of vindication.
