Some Thoughts On Mercy From Various Authors

“The willingness to forgive is a sign of spiritual and emotional maturity. It is one of the great virtues to which we all should aspire. Imagine a world filled with individuals willing both to apologize and to accept an apology. Is there any problem that could not be solved among people who possessed the humility and largeness of spirit and soul to do either — or both — when needed?”

Gordon B. Hinckley

“I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.”

Abraham Lincoln

“The world will give you that once in awhile, a brief timeout; the boxing bell rings and you go to your corner, where somebody dabs mercy on your beat-up life.”

Sue Monk Kidd

“The Lord’s mercy often rides to the door of our heart upon the black horse of affliction.”

Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“Mercy is the stuff you give to people that don’t deserve it.”

Joyce Meyer
