FORGIVENESS

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”
Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”
Mark Twain

“Mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.”
Bruce Lee

“Forgiveness is the final form of love.”
Reinhold Niebuhr

Tonight while I was on treadmill burning off some calories I was listening to a broadcast from the library of congress about blogging and social media and the power of FORGIVENESS came across unexpectedly, I thought it would be interesting finding more about it. while going through one of my favorite quote sites, brainy quote I found exactly what I thought: Forgiveness is possible but forgetting is not. I personally think that what Calle 13 says is perfectly fine: “Perdono pero nunca olvido”. I think that remembering keep us human and grounded and help us correct what’s wrong.

It would be great if you can tell me your opinion below….

  2. forgiveness is possible but sometimes it is hard, depend on how big the mistake made….but in time forgiveness is really possible…
    forgetting is impossible, i think… except we have amnesia….but once we have forgiven someone who have hurt us, then remembering the mistake that made won’t hurt us anymore 😉
