Chapter 9, Page 17, Book 17

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. 

William Arthur Ward

Asking for forgiveness is hard.

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. 

Paul Boese

Asking for forgiveness means realizing that you’ve hurt someone. It means accepting responsibility.

One thing you will probably remember well is any time you forgive and forget. 

Franklin P. Jones

Asking for forgiveness is also deeply intimate.

It means acknowledging that the relationship you have with someone is close enough that you can hurt them. It means being vulnerable.

My dear, don't let the sun go down upon your anger; forgive each other, help each other, and begin again tomorrow. 

Louisa May Alcott



I think the first quote sums it up. "Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting."

Always good to forgive and to ask for forgiveness. It helps us move on and get along with people around us.

I think forgiving is easier than forgetting.

My favorite is Louisa May Alcott's quote. (Isn't it neat, where different sayings resonate with each one of us?)

I hope you're enjoying a beautiful day, Ma!
