Chapter 2, Page 4, Book 19

Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.

Peter Ustinov

February 4th - Tender loving care

How far you go in life depends on you being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving, tolerant with the week and the strong.  Because someday in life you will have been all of these.

George Washington Carver

When we love, we find that we do forgive much easier than we would otherwise.  I’ve lats of opportunities giving and receiving forgiveness over the years and can only say, I’d do it again if I had too.  I like to think of it as tender loving care.  Life is too short for anger and hate or to hold grudges.  

Forgiveness is choosing to love rather than being resentful. When we choose love over a negative reaction, we find peace and happiness. When we put our focus on being happy, miracles occur. Love grows and expands. Forgiveness is divine and gives us a chance to be a better person.

Forgiveness is the economy of the heart….Forgiveness saves expense of anger, the cost of hatred, the waste of spirits.

Hannah More

I choose to love and forgive, life is too short.

I like your thought that forgiveness is choosing to love rather than being resentful. It is easy to let bitterness and resentment come into a situation if we don't forgive someone. Even if we just say it to ourselves and move on, it is always better to forgive.

Ahhh lady, you defined this post with the first line of yours:
When we love, we find that we do forgive much easier than we would otherwise.......

Such a deep statement. Good read with deep truth.

I love the quote by George Washington Carver - I think that is so true - and the thing is - until we are old - no ones knows all that.


i love the first quote on your page. And this one too, "When we put our focus on being happy, miracles occur."
