“Unbroken’s” Louis Zamperini on Forgiveness (and Forgiving)

download (19)

lightpinprick

“The noblest revenge is to forgive.”
– Thomas Fuller, English author (1608-1661)

“Forgiveness is not an occasional act – it is an attitude of mind.”
– Martin Luther King

“If I don’t forgive my enemies, I deny my right to have power over them.”
– Martin Luther King or Robert Kennedy??

http://www.drmartinlutherking.wordpress.com

His (Mandela’s) ability to rise above his conditions, to stay positive and remain focussed. His dignity, humility and character. He is a model for everyone, especially his total lack of bitterness towards his former enemies.

“There is no time to be bitter – there is work to be done.”
