Repentance Quotations

It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
Jesus Christ

The only vice that cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.
William Hazlitt

Regret is not a proactive feeling. It is situated in disappointment, sorrow, even remorse. It merely wishes things were different without an act to cause a difference. However, repentance is different. Repentance is an admission of, hatred of, and turning away from sin before God.
Monica Johnson

The feeling of longing for home is born into us. That wonderful dream cannot become real without great faith - enough for the Holy Ghost to lead us to repentance, baptism, and the making and keeping of sacred covenants with God. This faith requires enduring bravely the trials of mortal life.
Henry B. Eyring

The proud do not change to improve, but defend their position by rationalizing. Repentance means change, and it takes a humble person to change.
