What are Vitamins for the Heart? Additionally to the physical help for us the spiritual support has likewise a big meaning. ‘Vitamins for the Heart’ is the title of series in which we publish new articles monthly. The Vitamins are compositions out of texts, which we are friendly allowed by the authors to present on our webpage. Because we had many positive reactions to the vitamins we also want to present them on our webpage and hope that they will also bring many others a big pleasure.

Vitamins for the Heart

A Bridge to Cross

A compilation of quotes:

Forgiveness does not change the past, but it does enlarge the future. – Paul Boese (1923-1976)

Without forgiveness, life is governed by an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation. – Roberto Assagioli (1888–1974)

He that cannot forgive others breaks the bridge over which he must pass himself; for every man has need to be forgiven. – Author unknown

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were. – Cherie Carter-Scott (b. 1949)

Forgiveness is almost a selfish act because of its immense benefits to the one who forgives. – Lawana Blackwell (b. 1952)

The one attitude, which gives rise to hope amidst misunderstanding and ill will, is a forgiving spirit. Where forgiveness becomes the atmosphere, there hope and healing are possible. – C. Neil Strait (1934–2003)

Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hate. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness. – Author unknown

Love’s power does not make fussy historians. Love prefers to tuck the loose ends of past rights and wrongs in the bosom of forgiveness—and pushes us into a new start. – Lewis B. Smedes (1921–2002)

Not to forgive is to be imprisoned by the past, by old grievances that do not permit life to proceed with new business. Not to forgive is to yield oneself to another’s control... to be locked into a sequence of act and response, of outrage and revenge, tit for tat, escalating always. The present is endlessly overwhelmed and devoured by the past. Forgiveness frees the forgiver. It extracts the forgiver from someone else’s nightmare. —Lance Morrow (b. 1939)

Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies. – Nelson Mandela (1918–2013)

Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. – Martin Luther King, Jr (1929–1968)

People have to forgive. We don’t have to like them, we don’t have to be friends with them, we don’t have to send them hearts in text messages, but we have to forgive them, to overlook, to forget. Because if we don’t, we are tying rocks to our feet, too much for our wings to carry! – C. Joybell C.

Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. – Ephesians 4:32 ESV
