Forgiveness & the Foxy Quote

Working on my next article for New Thought Families, that quote about holding onto anger popped into my mind. You know the one. Google searching the source, I found this interesting little article. It posits that this quote, often attributed to Anne LaMotte, Pema Chodron, or Buddha really originated with Emmett Fox and was simplified by the someone in the AA community into an oft-repeated slogan. Well, it does sound like Buddha, and it certainly resonates with the forgiveness teachings of Jesus. And any way you look at it, forgiveness is a happy, healthy and beneficial choice!
