Quotes About Forgiveness

"Forgiveness is not a matter of quantity, but of quality. A man cannot forgive up to four hundred and ninety times without forgiveness becoming a part of the habit structure of his being. Forgiveness is not an occasional act; it is a permanent attitude." - Martin Luther King Jr

"Capital punishment is society's final assertion that it will not forgive." - Martin Luther King Jr

"He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love." - Martin Luther King Jr

"It is also necessary to realize that the forgiving act must always be initiated by the person who has been wronged, the victim of some great hurt, the recipient of some torturous injustice, the absorber of some terrible act of oppression." - Martin Luther King Jr

"Forgiveness does not mean ignoring what has been done or putting a false label on an evil act. It means, rather, that the evil act no longer remains as a barrier to the relationship. Forgiveness is a catalyst creating the atmosphere necessary for a fresh start and a new beginning. It is the lifting of a burden or the cancelling of a debt." - Martin Luther King Jr

"Forgiveness means reconciliation, a coming together again." - Martin Luther King Jr
