Forgiveness is the key to action and freedom.
The man who pardons easily courts injury
To err is human, to forgive, divine
We all like to forgive, and love best not those who offend us least, nor who have done most for us, but those who make it most easy for us to forgive them
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong
He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven
Forgive others often, yourself never
How unhappy is he who cannot forgive himself
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heal that has crushed it
Youth, which is forgiven everything, forgives itself nothing: age, which forgives itself everything, is forgiven nothing

On Anger: "For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind."
On Destiny: "Our destiny exercises its influence over us even when, as yet, we have not learned its nature: it is our future that lays down the law of our today."
Human, All Too Human
On Friendship: "A crowd is not company; and faces are but a gallery of pictures; and talk but a tinkling cymbal, where there is no love."
