Forgetting and Forgiving? - Forgiving Quotes

The Two Forgs (not Frogs)

Through our life, we speak about these two concepts (Forgiving & forgetting) . I noticed that, here we have two forgs (forg-ive & forg-et) not two frogs. Actually, they both jump like frogs (LOL).

Whenever you think that you forget something, suddenly it jumps to your mind. In addition, when you think that you have forgiven someone from the bottom of your heart, suddenly the pain jumps to your heart. So both of them jump, one of them jumps to mind and the other jumps to heart.

“Forget” is related to mind. While “Forgive” is related to heart.

Forgetting & Forgiving

Forgetting or Forgiving

I think that, the most important thing to know is that, every word we heard, situation we faced & sight we saw is a big lesson. Therefore, no need to forget any lesson, as life is the experience which we gain every day.

"True forgiveness is when you can say, "Thank you for that experience.” ~ Oprah Winfrey

We should not forget but we should forgive. Control your heart to forgive but do not touch your mind (& you can not), when you remember in future again, the forgiveness in your heart will heal that pain of remembering.

When you forgive, you & all of us (as we live beside you in the world) will have a more peaceful life.


Quotes about Forgiveness

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.”
~ Mother Teresa

"You will know that forgiveness has begun when you recall those who hurt you and feel the power to wish them well." ~ Lewis B. Smedes

"We forgive freely or we do not really forgive at all." ~ Lewis B. Smedes

"I have discovered that most people who tell me that they cannot forgive a person who wronged them are handicapped by a mistaken understanding of what forgiving is." Lewis B. Smedes

“And if your friend does evil to you, say to him, ''I forgive you for what you did to me, but how can I forgive you for what you did to yourself?” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche quotes

Haha ... I did read two frogs at first then, I though: "No way ... we're not talking about frogs, are we?" I had to re-read to clarify that - perhaps I'm dyslexic.

A great piece of writing - wise words. I am thankful for the way you explained how forgiveness comes from the heart while to forget is a matter of the mind.

Thanks again for writing this. Cheers!

Your hub is what life used to be. Others have difficulty of forgiving others that hurt them. I guess if one hurts a person, the person cannot forget what the other did. I myself cannot forget the persons who have hurt me but i forgive them for what they did.

I learned from the Bible that if someone throws a stone to you, give back a piece of bread. Thanks for sharing.
