Forgiveness is an unnatural act.
Forgiveness is not just an occasional act:
it is a permanent attitude.
—Martin Luther King, Jr.
Forgiveness is the answer to the child's dream of a miracle by which what is broken is made whole again, what is soiled is made clean again.
Forgiveness is the final form of love.
Forgiveness is the giving, and so the receiving, of life.
Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
—Saint Augustine of Hippo
For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.
—Jesus Christ in Matthew 6:14
