Quotable Sunday 12/14/2008

Welcome to Quotable Sunday, I hope you will join the fun.

Rules Are Simple
~Post a quote post on your blog
~Come back here and sign Mister Linky so we can all visit each others posts.

This week my quotes surrond Forgiveness. I have been hurt many times in my life and I thought forgiveness is something I am big on, I always believe you should forgive so I thought I would focus my quotes on that. Without further ado here are my quotes for this week.

“Forgiveness does not mean excusing.” C.S. Lewis
~This is something I whole heartedly believe. I believe you really must forgive everyone because if you don’t you will be the one to suffer, but forgiving does not mean excusing. There are many things that have happened to me that I have forgiven but it best not excuse them because if I excused them I would be saying I agree with whatever the situation was and that is just not the case.

Forgiveness is the sweetest revenge. ~Isaac Friedmann

~How true this is. There is no sweeter revenge than saying you forgive someone for what they have done for once you have done that, they can no longer accuse you of treating them wrong “because you are mad at them”. It only serves to make you the better and bigger person really.

Forgive all who have offended you, not for them, but for yourself. ~Harriet Nelson

~When you forgive those who have hurt/offended you you will only grow yourself. In the process of forgiveness you will better who you are for taking the step to let go of the hurt.

Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting. ~William Arthur Ward
~For me personally this is so true, until I forgive someone I literally will be angry and hurt and pissed off and not just at them but it seems at everyone but once I have said to myself or aloud that i have forgiven whomever has done me wrong I feel a huge weight lifted off my shoulders and move forward. It’s absolutely wonderful!

    o.k. since you INSISTED i had to come and do this myself:

    Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option. Unknown

    “Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.” not sure who this is from.

    here are some from me:

    I’m kinda like a Transformer…there’s more than meets the eye lol

    Live life on YOUR terms. You are NOT defined by what others think of you or what they expect of you.
