"Where you now stand is a result of thoughts and feelings that you have offered before, but where you are going is a result of your perspective of where you now stand."

Forgiveness

"Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief, than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved."
~Marcus Antonius
  
"If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow."
~ Chinese Proverb
  
"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."
~Buddha

"Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it."
~Mark Twain

“The willingness to release the need to be right is a major step towards forgiveness.”
~Gabrielle Bernstein from her book Spirit Junkie

"He who angers you conquers you."
~Elizabeth Kenny

"I will waste not even a precious second today in anger or hate or jealousy or selfishness. I know that the seeds I sow I will harvest, because every action, good or bad, is always followed by an equal reaction. I will plant only good seeds this day."
Og Mandino

“People need Loving the most, when they deserve it the least"
~Louise Hay

“I realize when someone is sending me negativity or hate, it's not because I'm wrong or did something wrong, it's a projection of what's inside them onto me. And the same goes for me. When I'm in a negative or angry state, I tend to project that state onto others.”
~Mastin Kipp

“The sin you see in others reinforces the darkness you see in yourself.”
~Gabrielle Bernstein from her book Spirit Junkie

“The holiest of all spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.”
~A Course in Miracles

“All anger at its core is a request for LOVE. All hate at its core is a request for LOVE.”
~Mastin Kipp

"What angers us in another person is more often than not an unhealed aspect of ourselves. If we had already resolved that particular issue, we would not be irritated by its reflection back to us." ~Simon Peter Fuller

“We can choose to see and encourage the best in others. And when we do that, a strange thing starts to happen - the best of who they are begins to emerge.”
~Mastin Kipp

"The only people with whom you should try to get even with are those who have helped you."
~John E. Southard

"This moment is all that is guaranteed - use it to express the depth of your love and to wipe your slate clean of any resentment you are holding on to. Life is too precious to carry the weight of the past with you! Let it go and start to grow!"
~Jackson Kiddard

“Fear-based behavior tends not to look like fear but like anger or jealousy; it elicits reactions from others that reflect my fear and not my love.”
~Marianne Williamson

"One of the most loving things you can do for another person is let them make their own mistakes, learn their own lessons and endure in the contrast of a life they don't really want. People only really change when they've hit rock bottom - sometimes the most loving thing you can do for a person is to let them and be there to help pick up the pieces. Permanent change comes from within, no one can give it to you."
~Jackson Kiddard

"With forgiveness, your victim identity dissolves, and your true power emerges - the power of presence. Instead of blaming the darkness you bring in the light."
~Eckhart Tolle

"If I feel depressed I will sing. If I feel sad I will laugh. If I feel ill I will double my labor. If I feel fear I will plunge ahead. If I feel inferior I will wear new garments. If I feel uncertain I will raise my voice. If I feel poverty I will think of wealth to come. If I feel incompetent I will think of past success. If I feel insignificant I will remember my goals. Today I will be the master of my emotions."
~Og Mandino

"To be angry is to revenge the faults of others on ourselves."
~Alexander Pope

"When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free."
~ Catherine Ponder
