About forgiveness

Somewhere I read that forgiveness is "giving up all hope of a better past". That's been my favorite definition for some time now. Today I came across something else that's similar:

To forgive is not to condone wrongs but to refuse to let the past dictate the future.

-- Huston Smith

I found it on the blog, Spiritually Directed.
