Holding Quotations

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Some of us think holding on makes us strong; but sometimes it is letting go.
Hermann Hesse

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
Havelock Ellis

You never lose by loving. You always lose by holding back.
Barbara de Angelis

Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.
Joan Lunden
