Release Your Resentments


I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a canceled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.
- Henry Ward Beecher (19th century Congregationalist clergyman and social reformer)

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
- The Buddha

Forgiveness ... is the finishing of old business that allows us to experience the present, free of contamination from the past.
- Joan Borysenko

To err is human, to forgive divine.
- Alexander Pope

Forgiving is not a gift to someone else - Forgiving is your gift to yourself - a great gift - the gift of happiness.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Resentments are bad for your health and your disposition. Light a candle and say a prayer to affirm your love for all human beings and to release all your resentments.
