To forgive is to set a prisoner…

“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”

Philip Yancey – The Unnatural Act (article, Christianity Today, April 8, 1991)

“Forgiveness is the only way to break the cycle of blame–and pain–in a relationship…It does not settle all questions of blame and justice and fairness…But it does allow relationships to start over. In that way, said Solzhenitsyn, we differ from all animals. It is not our capacity to think that makes us different, but our capacity to repent, and to forgive.”

Old Chinese Proverb –

“The one who pursues revenge should dig two graves.”

Allen C. Guelzo – Fear Of Forgiving (article, Christianity Today, February 8, 1993)
