Note Quotations

I can forgive, but I cannot forget, is only another way of saying, I will not forgive. Forgiveness ought to be like a cancelled note - torn in two, and burned up, so that it never can be shown against one.
Henry Ward Beecher

A note of caution: We can never achieve goals that envy sets for us. Looking at your friends and wishing you had what they had is a waste of precious energy. Because we are all unique, what makes another happy may do the opposite for you. That's why advice is nice but often disappointing when heeded.
Marcus Buckingham

If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.
Edgar Allan Poe

Summer is a promissory note signed in June, its long days spent and gone before you know it, and due to be repaid next January.
