“There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love.” – Bryant H. McGill

The purpose of forgiveness isn’t to let the person who hurt you off the hook; it’s about freeing yourself from the past so you can live more freely in the present. So, open your heart to the freedom forgiveness provides with these inspirational quotes.

“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.” – Mahatma Gandhi

“When you forgive, you in no way change the past – but you sure do change the future.” – Bernard Meltzer

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

“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.’”- Maya Angelou

“Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.” – William Arthur Ward

“A happy marriage is the union of two good forgivers.” – Robert Quillen

“When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free.” – Katherine Ponder
