me too.. i love this quote.. it is truly profound..
if you ever ready Desmond Tutu's No Future Without Forgiveness, it really brings it to heart.

very good book. if i'm not wrong, Tutu won the Nobel peace prize for the work he did there in South Africa.. and the book describes his experiences quite well.

I just read he got the Nobel prize in 1984 and wrote a few more books. If I enjoy reading the one you mentioned, I'm sure I'll read the others as well! Looks like I've been missing something!

At first I thought the quote was, "To forgive, is to set a prisoner free, then discover that the prisoner smells like trash."

No, really.

Aside from that, that's very true!

When you forgive someone, they have no power over you...
