10 Forgiveness Quotes from Literature

Life had taught her to be brave, to be patient, to love, to forgive. ~ Rainbow Valley by Lucy Maud Montgomery Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them. ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde Apology? Bah! Disgusting! Cowardly! Beneath the dignity of any gentleman, however wrong he might be. ~ I Will Repay by Baroness Emmuska Orczy "After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one's own relations." ~ A Woman of No Importance by Oscar Wilde It is so much easier to forgive a failure than a success. ~ A Little Journey in the World by Charles Dudley Warner But the words she spoke of Mrs Harris, lambs could not forgive . . . nor worms forget." ~ Martin Chuzzlewit by Charles Dickens "The quality of mercy is not strain'd, It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath. It is twice blest, It blesseth him that gives, and him that takes." ~ The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them. ~ The Man Upstairs by P. G. Wodehouse He covered page after page with wild words of sorrow and wilder words of pain. There is a luxury in self-reproach. When we blame ourselves, we feel that no one else has a right to blame us. It is the confession, not the priest, that gives us absolution. ~ The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde "It is my holy mission to be a sompnour or pardoner. I am the unworthy servant and delegate of him who holds the keys. A contrite heart and ten nobles to holy mother Church may stave off perdition; but he hath a pardon of the first degree, with a twenty-five livre benison, so that I doubt if he will so much as feel a twinge of purgatory." ~ The White Company by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
