You can’t forgive without loving. And I don’t mean sentimentality. I don’t mean mush. I mean having enough courage to stand up and say, “I forgive. I’m finished with it.”
The stupid neither forgive nor forget; the naive forgive and forget; the wise forgive but do not forget.
Let us be very gentle with our neighbors’ failings, and forgive our friends their debts as we hope ourselves to be forgiven.
I did not know until you walked away you had the perfect ass. Forgive me for not falling in love with your face or your conversation.
