Famous Redemption Quotes

I guess darkness serves a purpose to show us that there is redemption through chaos. I believe in that. I think that’s the basis of Greek mythology. Brendan Fraser

Any fool can be happy. It takes a man with real heart to make beauty out of the stuff that makes us weep. Clive Barker

Seeking to forget makes exile all the longer; the secret of redemption lies in remembrance. Richard von Weizsaecker

Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, Love your enemies. It is this that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. Martin Luther King Jr.

Wherever my story takes me, however dark and difficult the theme, there is always some hope and redemption, not because readers like happy endings, but because I am an optimist at heart. I know the sun will rise in the morning, that there is a light at the end of every tunnel. Michael Morpurgo

A good act does not wash out the bad, nor a bad act the good. Each should have its own reward. George R.R. Martin

Even if you’re not Christian, just from being in our culture you know Jesus and resurrection and redemption. Trey Parker

God creates out of nothing. Wonderful you say. Yes, to be sure, but he does what is still more wonderful: he makes saints out of sinners. Soren Kierkegaard

There’s no need to talk about it, because the truth of what one says lies in what one does. Bernhard Schlink

Any story about revenge is ultimately a story about forgiveness, redemption, or the futility of revenge. Nick Wechsler

Was it you or I who stumbled first? It does not matter. The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other. Vera Nazarian

If Jesus Christ was who He claimed to be, and He did die on a cross at a point of time in history, then, for all history past and all history future it is relevant because that is the very focal point for forgiveness and redemption. Josh McDowell

Contrary to what we may have been taught to think, unnecessary and unchosen suffering wounds us but need not scar us for life. It does mark us. What we allow the mark of our suffering to become is in our own hands. Bell Hooks

In the process of evolution, the body lasts for some time and then will take other body and take other body and take other body until the final redemption from diversity is transcended. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

When someone you love dies, you are given the gift of second chances. Their eulogy is a reminder that the living can turn their lives around at any point. You’re not bound by the past; that is who you used to be. You’re reminded that your feelings are not who you are, but how you felt at that moment. Your bad choices defined you yesterday, but they are not who you are today. Your future doesn’t have to travel the same path with the same people. You can start over. You don’t have to apologize to people that won’t listen. You don’t have to justify your feelings or actions, during a difficult time in your life. You don’t have to put up with people that are insecure and want you to fail. All you have to do is walk forward with a positive outlook, and trust that God has a plan that is greater than the sorrow you left behind. The people of quality that were meant to be in your life won’t need you to explain the beauty of your heart. They already understand what being human is a roller coaster ride of emotions during rainstorms and sunshine, sprinkled with moments when you can almost reach the stars. Shannon L. Alder

All we do is bring the debate from both sides, and let you as a viewer decide where you want to end up on the issue. That’s very important. That’s exactly what happens in Redemption Inc. Kevin O’Leary

I take literally the statement in the Gospel of John that God loves the world. I believe that the world was created and approved by love, that it subsists, coheres, and endures by love, and that, insofar as it is redeemable, it can be redeemed only by love. I believe that divine love, incarnate and indwelling in the world, summons the world always toward wholeness, which ultimately is reconciliation and atonement with God. Wendell Berry

Usually my Easter reading consists of Who Moved the Stone? which gets dusted off annually and read, often in one sitting, to remind me of the miracle of redemption, resurrection and life after death. Ann Widdecombe

Redemption. Deliverance of sinners from the penalty of their sin through their murder of the deity against whom they sinned. The doctrine of Redemption is the fundamental mystery of our holy religions, and whoso believeth in it shall not perish, but have everlasting life in which to try to understand it. Ambrose Bierce

No person and no character is beyond redemption, ultimately. That’s the great thing about playing a character that has kind of a dark side; there’s room to explore the opposite. Murray Bartlett

If man had his way, the plan of redemption would be an endless and bloody conflict. In reality, salvation was bought not by Jesus’ fist, but by His nail pierced hands; not by muscle but by love; not by vengeance but by forgiveness; not by force but by sacrifice. Jesus Christ our Lord surrendered in order that He might win; He destroyed His enemies by dying for them and conquered death by allowing death to conquer Him. A.W. Tozer

The fact is there is forgiveness for those who seek God. And I believe in the power of redemption. Rick Perry

Redemption is something you have to fight for in a very personal, down dirty way. Some of our characters lose that, some stray from that, and some regain it. Joss Whedon

Jesus Christ is the beginning, the middle, and the end of all. In the Gospels he walks in human form upon the earth, and accomplishes the work of redemption. Philip Schaff

The situation was extraordinary. How someone like Evangeline Jenner could have wrought such a change in St. Vincent, the most worldly of men, was difficult to understand. However, Westcliff had learned that the mysteries of attraction could not always be explained through logic. Sometimes the fractures in two separate souls became the very hinges that held them together. Lisa Kleypas

It’s a Wonderful Life was a mainstream Hollywood movie about faith, redemption, religion, and it was rated G. D. B. Sweeney

We can be redeemed only to the extent to which we see ourselves. Martin Buber

I think Chef is about somebody who’s in the middle of his life, and he’s kind of lost his passion and his voice, so he seeks out some refinement and redemption. Jon Favreau

We all long for Eden, and we are constantly glimpsing it our whole nature at its best and least corrupted, its gentlest and most human, is still soaked with the sense of exile. J.R.R. Tolkien

When Marcus Garvey died in 1940, the role of the British Empire was already being challenged by India and the rising expectations of her African colonies. Marcus Garvey’s avocation of African redemption and the restoration of the African state’s sovereign political entity in world affairs was still a dream without fulfillment. John Henrik Clarke

No matter what a waste one has made of one’s life, it is ever possible to find some path to redemption, however partial. Charles Frazier

The idea of redemption is always good news, even if it means sacrifice or some difficult times. Patti Smith

Sometimes friends make mistakes. Grievous ones that cry out for us to stay and prove we are true friends. Beth Bernobich

But the more we search the Scriptures, the more we perceive, in this doctrine, the fundamental truth of the gospel  that truth which gives to redemption its character, and to all other truths their real power. John Nelson Darby

I find something repulsive about the idea of vicarious redemption. I would not throw my numberless sins onto a scapegoat and expect them to pass from me; we rightly sneer at the barbaric societies that practice this unpleasantness in its literal form. There’s no moral value in the vicarious gesture anyway. As Thomas Paine pointed out, you may if you wish take on a another man’s debt, or even to take his place in prison. That would be self sacrificing. But you may not assume his actual crimes as if they were your own; for one thing you did not commit them and might have died rather than do so; for another this impossible action would rob him of individual responsibility. So the whole apparatus of absolution and forgiveness strikes me as positively immoral, while the concept of revealed truth degrades the concept of free intelligence by purportedly relieving us of the hard task of working out the ethical principles for ourselves. Christopher Hitchens

I’ve had a fantastic time at Coronation Street, and I’m chuffed at the reaction to Becky. It’s been this lovely redemption story, and I think that’s what the viewers have enjoyed about it. Katherine Kelly

It is to the Cross that the Christian is challenged to follow his Master no path of redemption can make a detour around it. Hans Urs von Balthasar

The Shawshank Redemption has nothing to do with China, but that hasn’t kept social media censors from blocking the movie’s title from searches on the country’s most popular Twitter like microblogging service, Weibo. Rebecca MacKinnon

We just philosophize, complain of boredom, or drink vodka. It’s so clear, you see, that if we’re to begin living in the present, we must first of all redeem our past and then be done with it forever. And the only way we can redeem our past is by suffering and by giving ourselves over to exceptional labor, to steadfast and endless labor. Anton Chekhov

If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now. Bob Marley

God’s relationship with man does not work in a way in which man stumbles and then God has to drop what he is doing in order to lift him up; rather, man stumbles so that God can lift him up. Hence it is utterly impossible to truly diminish his glory. Criss Jami

I don’t believe the world’s a particularly beautiful place, but I do believe in redemption. Colum McCann

If every time we choose a turd, society, at a great expense, simply allows us to redeem it for a pepperoni, then not only will we never learn to make smart choices, we will also surrender the freedom to choose, because a choice without consequences is no choice at all. Tom Robbins

Redemption just means you just make a change in your life and you try to do right, versus what you were doing, which was wrong. Ice T

People find meaning and redemption in the most unusual human connections. Khaled Hosseini

For my own part, I have been wont to converse with poverty; and however disagreeable a companion she may be thought to be by the affluent and luxurious, who were never acquainted with her, I can live happily with her the remainder of my life if I can thereby contribute to the redemption of my country. Samuel Adams

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. W. Scott Lineberry

A hedonistic lifestyle contrary to all the rules and expectations of Islam is not an unusual precursor to radicalisation in fact, some young radicals see joining in the jihad as a way of achieving redemption for past sins. Deeyah Khan

Your current circumstances are part of your redemption story He is writing. Evinda Lepins

Redemption basically is about holistic health, if you want to translate it into modern parlance. What I suggest based on the Christian tradition but not often preached is that you can’t enter into the fullness of the Pascal mystery of the redemption unless there is a radical transformation of motivation within you. Thomas Keating

We must not offer people a system of redemption, a set of insights and principles. We offer people a Redeemer. Paul David Tripp

I believe in the forgiveness of sin and the redemption of ignorance. Adlai Stevenson II

Grace abounds in contemporary movies, books, novels, films and music. If God is not in the whirlwind, He may be in a Woody Allen film, or a Bruce Springsteen concert. Most people understand imagery and symbol better than doctrine and dogma. Images touch hearts and awaken imaginations. One theologian suggested that Springsteen’s Tunnel of Love album, in which he symbolically sings of sin, death, despair and redemption, is more important for Catholics than the Pope’s last visit when he spoke of morality only in doctrinal propositions. Brennan Manning

He’s evil. I believe in redemption, but I haven’t seen any redeeming qualities in Henry Kissinger. Lyndon LaRouche

Most rich people have a gangster in their ancestry somewhere. Ken Follett

Your job today is to pass gas. You do that and we can start feeding you liquids. No fart, no food. Khaled Hosseini

If you think there is a way to accomplish redemption without suffering and death, you’re offering what the devil offered. John MacArthur

It was suffering and incapacity that created all afterworlds this, and that brief madness of bliss which is experienced only by those who suffer deeply. Weariness that wants to reach the ultimate with one leap, with one fatal leap, a poor ignorant weariness that does not want to want any more this created all gods and afterworlds. Friedrich Nietzsche

Redemption is about understanding myself and not worrying about my relationship with the industry. Dawn Richard

Murderers don’t get forgiven just because we promise to be good from now on. We have to earn our way back. One hundred is the price. One hundred lives for each we took. That seems fair. That’s how we get whole again and that’s our work, from now until as long as it takes. Bill Willingham

It’s a very bleak play, but there is some final sense of redemption. Coriolanus shows mercy, a Christian virtue in an otherwise un Christian world. David Farr

Sneering has gotten a bad rap, he thought, walking rapidly up the hill from his car. All that unleashed adrenaline got his legs pumping. Why is it that only villains are allowed to sneer? Surely such a display of disapproval could be used to better all humankind. If there was more sneering in the world, people might think before they acted. Vincent Panettiere

The gospel comprises indeed, and unfolds, the whole mystery of man’s redemption, as far forth as it is necessary to be known for our salvation. Robert Boyle

Jesus is God’s way of refusing to give up his dream for the world. Rob Bell

My journey is so similar to everyone else’s journey, because we all are human. We all have been defeated by the powers of darkness, and we all find redemption in the light of Christ. Ted Dekker

If Christ is God, He cannot sin, and if suffering was a sin in and by itself, He could not have suffered and died for us. However, since He took the most horrific death to redeem us, He showed us in fact that suffering and pain have great power. E.A. Bucchianeri

Well, I think it’s incredibly important that when we are indulging ourselves in these kind of great, big Cinderella fantasies, that everyone gets to see themselves as worthy of status and glamour and love and redemption. Rege Jean Page

Even there, in the mines, underground, I may find a human heart in another convict and murderer by my side, and I may make friends with him, for even there one may live and love and suffer. One may thaw and revive a frozen heart in that convict, one may wait upon him for years, and at last bring up from the dark depths a lofty soul, a feeling, suffering creature; one may bring forth an angel, create a hero! There are so many of them, hundreds of them, and we are all to blame for them. If they drive God from the earth, we shall shelter Him underground. Fyodor Dostoyevsky

If you’ve seen the Shawshank Redemption and if you think Morgan Freeman’s character should have died in prison, vote for the other person. And if you think, and you believe in redemption, and a second chance, you know, I’m your candidate. John Fetterman

You cannot mend the chromosome, quell the earthquake, or stanch the flood. You cannot atone for the dead tyrants murders and you alone cannot stop living tyrants. As Martin Buber saw it, the world of ordinary days affords us that precise association with god that redeems both us and our speck of world. God entrusts and allots to everyone an area to redeem: this creased and feeble life, the world in which you live, just as it is, and not otherwise. Insofar as he cultivates and enjoys them in holiness, he frees their souls he who prays and sings in holiness, eats and speaks in holiness through him the sparks which have fallen will be uplifted, and the worlds which have fallen will be delivered and renewed. Annie Dillard

It has always been a goal of mine to climb Kilimanjaro, so that’s definitely happening, and I may write a memoir about it. When I was 25, I tried to trek to Everest Base Camp, but I got sick and ended up being carried out of Dingboche on the back of my Sherpa. So Kilimanjaro would represent a redemption of sorts. Elin Hilderbrand
