Favorite Forget And Forgive Quotes

1. "She would not allow herself to remember how Note had treated her, and many others too, she suspected. She had forgiven him, yes, but she still did not like to remember. And perhaps a deliberate act of forgetting went along with forgiveness. You forgave, and then you said to yourself: Now I shall forget. Because if you did not forget, then your forgiveness would be tested, perhaps many times and in ways that you could not resist, and you might go back to anger, and to hating."
Author: Alexander McCall Smith
2. "Search for the answers I knew all along;I lost myself,We all fall down;Never the wiser of what I've becomeAlone I stand,A broken man...All I have is one last chance.I won't turn my back on you.Take my hand,Drag me down.If you fall,Then I will too.And I can't save what's left of you...(Chorus)Sing something new,I have nothing left.I can't face the dark without you.There's nothing left to lose,The fight never ends.I can't face the dark without you.Swallow me under and pull me apart.I understand;There's nothing left.Pain so familiar and close to the heart;No more no less,I won't forget.Come back down,Save yourself.I can't find my way to you.And I can't bear to face the truth...(chorus)I wanted to forgive;I'm trying to forget;Don't leave me here again.I am with you, forever, the end.(chorus)Holding the hand that holds me down.I forgive you, forget you, the end.Holding the hand that holds me down.I forgive you, forget you, the end.(classical finish)"
Author: Breaking Benjamin
3. "It is a happy thing that time quells the longings of vengeance and hushes the promptings of rage and aversion. I had left this woman in bitterness and hate, and I came back to her now with no other emotion than a sort of ruth for her great sufferings, and strong yearning to forget and forgive all injuries - to be reconciled and clasp hands in amity."
Author: Charlotte Brontë
4. "We hurt each other, is the point. Hurt, annoy, embarrass, but move on. People, it just doesn't work that way. Your own feelings get so complicated that you forget the ways another human being can be vulnerable. You spend a lot of energy protecting yourself. All those layers and motivations and feelings. You get hurt, you stay hurt sometimes. The hurt affects your ability to go forward. And words. All the words between us. Words can be permanent. Certain ones are impossible to forgive."
Author: Deb Caletti
5. "We often forget that calling for peace is the most courageous act we can take. It's easy to call for revenge, to claim injustice, and to launch an attack. It's much more difficult to forgive, to call for peace, to lay down weapons."
Author: Dillon Burroughs

Author: E.E. Cummings

Author: Ford Frick
8. "T is sweet to win, no matter how, one's laurels,By blood or ink; 't is sweet to put an endTo strife; 't is sometimes sweet to have our quarrels,Particularly with a tiresome friend:Sweet is old wine in bottles, ale in barrels;Dear is the helpless creature we defendAgainst the world; and dear the schoolboy spotWe ne'er forget, though there we are forgot.But sweeter still than this, than these, than all,Is first and passionate Love—it stands alone,Like Adam's recollection of his fall;The Tree of Knowledge has been plucked—all 's known—And Life yields nothing further to recallWorthy of this ambrosial sin, so shown,No doubt in fable, as the unforgivenFire which Prometheus filched for us from Heaven."
Author: George Gordon Byron
9. "Never forget the three powerful resources you always have available to you: love, prayer, and forgiveness."
Author: H. Jackson Brown Jr.
10. "You can forget what people said and did, but you never forget how they made you feel. You can forgive the people who hurt you, but you will remember what they taught you."
Author: J.C. Reed
11. "I am not I.I am this onewalking beside me whom I do not see,whom at times I manage to visit,and whom at other times I forget;who remains calm and silent while I talk,and forgives, gently, when I hate,who walks where I am not,who will remain standing when I die."
Author: Juan Ramón Jiménez
12. "If we can't forget, how can we forgive? I believe that forgiving can't be done by willpower alone. I can will myself to write out my own memories and feelings. I can will myself to imagine onto the page how someone else may have felt. I can will myself to research someone else's life in order to better understand what happened. But I don't think I can forgive by simply willing to forgive. Forgiving happens to us when our hearts are ready. Sometimes it takes the form of working on our own story until quietly, often surprisingly, we simply let go of the hurt. Sometimes forgiving makes it possible to pick up the pieces of a broken relationship and begin again. Sometimes it means letting a relationship go. We can't forgive through willpower. What we can do is work toward readiness of heart. Writing as a spiritual practice can be that kind of work.When our heart is ready, we often don't even know it until forgiveness happens within us. It is a gift."
Author: Pat Schneider
13. "I will never remember anythingI know how to forget and forgiveLife has turned into miracle,nowI know, when I am deadNobody would remember me,they all will forgetI am an immortal soulI will forgive them, allShapeshifting in wind of change."
Author: Santosh Kalwar
14. "Grandpa, I haven't remembered all your stories, but I've written a few of my own adn as soon as the rain stops I'll read them to you. I got the idea from Nena Fatima, I got Grandpa Rafik's voice, I got the veins on your son's upper arms, he's painting coconuts now, I got my mother's melencholy. But still I don't have all the things i'd need to tell my story as one of us: I don't have the courage of the river Drina, or the voice of the hawk, or the rock hard backbone of our mountains, or Walrus's infalibility, or the enthusiasum of the man who misses, honorably. And I don't have Armin the stationmaster, Cika Hasan and Cika Sead in their eternal argument, Kiko's leg, Edin who forgets he's imitating a wolf and takes fright at the sound of his own voice, Cauliflower, the names of trees, a stomache for schnapps, the goals scored in the school yard. But most of all I miss the truth, the truth in which we are no longer listeners or storytellers, but we give and forgive."
Author: Saša Stanišić
15. "Men can beat each other to a pulp and still walk away friends. With a woman, once an enemy, always an enemy. Women will sit like a spider, for years, waiting for the chance to strike. They never forget and seldom forgive."
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
16. "The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget."
Author: Thomas Szasz
17. "We deliberately forget because forgetting is a blessing. On both an emotional level and a spiritual level, forgetting is a natural part of the human experience and a natural function of the human brain. It is a feature, not a bug, one that saves us from being owned by our memories. Can a world that never forgets be a world that truly forgives?"
