“Tim Keller once defined forgiveness as resolving not to bring the offence up again with God, with the person who offended us, or with ourselves. Often it is the final one of these that is the most difficult.” Sam Allberry, Why Bother With Church?
“Not forgiving is like drinking poison and waiting for the rat to die.” -Anne Lamott
“Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.” -Mark Twain (unverified)
BTW NOTE: Among the things anger can corrode is our sensibilities, where we begin to see offenses, attacks, and scheming against us everywhere. It’s why to be a truly intuitive person, you have to get control of your anger or you will always misread situations.
“The world will never starve for want of wonders, but only for want of wonder.” -G.K. Chesterton, Tremendous Trifles
