by Adele James

Words of WisdomIn August, there are not one but two days commemorating forgiveness—Global Forgiveness Day is held on August 27 and International Forgiveness Day fell on the first Sunday of August. Perhaps this is because this act can be humbling, transforming, freeing and oftentimes, the start or end to a chapter. Here are some inspiring reflections on this meaningful action.

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

“It's one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself, to forgive. Forgive everybody. “ —Maya Angelou

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.” —Alexander Pope

"Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself." —Harriet Nelson

“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
