HENRY GRIFFIN, Unnatural History, "Sleeper in a Box" (2010)
"Forgive and forget", that's what they say. It's good advice, but it's not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, nothing is ever settled. Hurts never heal. And the most we can hope for is to forget.
DR. MEREDITH GREY, Grey's Anatomy, "The Heart of the Matter" (2007)
When you forgive, you love. And when you love, God's light shines through you.
RON FRANZ, Into the Wild (2007)
To forgive is an act of compassion...it's not done because people deserve it, it's done because they need it.
RUPERT GILES, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, "I Only Have Eyes for You" (1998)
Forgiveness liberates the soul. It removes fear. That is why it is such a powerful weapon.
NELSON MANDELA, Invictus (2009)
Forgiveness is a process.
MADELINE WESTEN, Burn Notice, "The Hunter" (2009)
You want forgiveness? Get religion.
PETER PARKER, Spider-Man 3 (2007)
Part of being human is having compassion, learning to forgive.
MAJOR SAMANTHA CARTER, Stargate SG-1, "New Order: Part 1" (2004)
It seems in today's world the power to absolve debt is greater than the power of forgiveness.
ARCHBISHOP GILDAY, The Godfather: Part III (1990)
I know human beings. They're all sopping over with compassion and forgiveness. They can't wait to absolve almost any offense. It's an inherent weakness of the breed.
Q, Star Trek: The Next Generation, "Déjà Q" (1990)
