Okay, before anyone reads anything into any of the stuff to follow - it was NOT posted due to any particular individual or situation.  I recently found these quotes and thought I'd share, because they're good.  That's not to say that they don't apply to any particular individual or situation, because some of them have (or still do!), but I'm not pointing fingers, bringing up personal situations, or blaming anyone for anything.  So, with that said - don't assume any of it is about you or something you were involved with!  I just wanted to share some good stuff!


A little girl was asked what forgiveness is...

She gave a beautiful answer...
"It is the fragrance that flowers give when they are crushed..."



If you aren't willing to forgive someone, then you don't truly love them.  [forgive, yes, but forget - no]



Refusing to forgive someone is like drinking poison, and waiting for the other person to die.  [yep, I've done this before]



Please don't lie to me, unless you're absolutely sure I'll never find out the truth.  [My own personal thought on this - if you're a man lying to a woman - you really think the woman won't find out?  Ha ha ha!  But seriously, regardless of who the liar is, male or female - why carry the guilt of a lie around with you?  Just don't lie - sure the truth may hurt, but not for nearly as long, or as deeply as the pain of a lie - not much hurts worse than knowing you weren't worth the truth - and lies piss me off to no end]



When you forgive and still hold a like driving forward with your foot on the brake.  [oh crap, I'm so guilty of this]



Never ruin an apology with an excuse.  [boy ain't that the truth - totally negates the apology when the apologist has to explain and offers lame excuses]

Promises mean everything. But once you break them, sorry means nothing.

If you are sorry why did you do it?

If you really were sorry, you wouldn’t have done it in the first place.  [And let's face it - you usually know, before you do something, whether it's appropriate or acceptable, or not, and if you're going to catch grief for it.  If you're going to have to apologize for your actions, then perhaps you need to rethink your behavior.]
