Relationship Quotes

Relationship Quotes- Invest Sustainably: Invest in Relationships

Invest sustainably, invest in relationships.

Next, I saw under the sun something else that was pointless:

There are people who are utterly alone,

with no companions, not even a child or a sibling.

Yet they work hard without end, never satisfied with their wealth.

So for whom am I working so hard and depriving myself of enjoyment?... 

Ecclesiastes 4: 7-9 Common English Bible

The true secret of giving advice is, after you have honestly given it,

to be perfectly indifferent whether it is taken or not, and

never persist in trying to set people right.

- Hannah Whitall Smith

Forgiveness Quotes

Forgiveness is Relational Glue

Need some relational glue? Try forgiveness...

“Many people are reluctant to show mercy because they don’t understand the

difference between trust and forgiveness.

Forgiveness is letting go of the past.

Trust has to do with future behaviour.

- Rick Warren

“Forgive, forget. Bear with the faults of others as you would have them bear

with yours. Be patient and understanding.

Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious.”

- Phillips Brooks

“Forgiving does not erase the bitter past.

A healed memory is not a deleted memory.

Instead, forgiving what we cannot forget creates a new way to remember.

We change the memory of our past into a hope for our future.” 

- Lewis B. Smedes

 “Forgiveness brings freedom:

 freedom from being controlled by the past,

freedom from the emotional ties to the offender,

freedom from the continual inner conflicts of bitterness and hate,

freedom to become whole and enjoy the fullness of life.”

- Jeanette Vought
