Forgiveness is Freedom

Catherine Ponder says: "When you hold resentment toward another, you are bound to that person or condition by an emotional link that is stronger than steel. Forgiveness is the only way to dissolve that link and get free."
(Quoted in Tian Dayton, The Magic of Forgiveness Deerfield Beach, Fla. Health Communications, 2003) p. 87

Lewis Smedes says: "When you release the wrongdoer from the wrong...you set a prisoner free, but you discover that the real prisoner was yourself."
(Lewis Smedes, Forgive and Forget: Healing the Hurts We Don't Deserve (San Francisco,: HarperSanFrancisco, 1996) p. 133
