Splendour, forgiveness, fortitude, cleanliness, absence of malice,
and absence of pride; these are the qualities
of those endowed with divine virtues, O Arjuna.
Bhagavad Gita 16.3
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour,
and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice:
And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you.
Be like the sandalwood which perfumes the axe that wounds it.
Holding on to anger is like grasping hot coal with the
intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
M K Gandhi
Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future.
Always forgive your enemies; nothing annoys them as much.
