Mignon McLaughlin (June 6, 1913 – December 20, 1983) was an American journalist and author.

What he did was wrong. He doesn't deserve your love. But he does deserve your forgiveness, because otherwise he will grow like a weed in your heart until it's choked and overrun. The only person who suffers, when you squirrel away all that hate, is you.
—Jodi Picoult in The Storyteller
To err is human; to forgive, divine.
Once a woman has forgiven her man, she must not reheat his sins for breakfast.
One forgives to the degree that one loves.
