Thomas Watson (1620-1686)

When do we forgive others? When we strive against all thoughts of revenge; when we will not do our enemies mischief, but wish well to them, grieve at their calamities, pray for them, seek reconciliation with them, and show ourselves ready on all occasions to relieve them. This is gospel-forgiving (Body of Divinity, p. 581). Added 2/10/2014

Events will take their course, it is no good of being angry at them; he is happiest who wisely turns them to the best account (Brainy Quote). Added 2/8/2014
