  1. Imam Ali, Peak of Eloquence (Nahjul Balagha):

    The sin which makes you sad and repentant is more liked by Allah than the good deed which turns you arrogant.

  2. Jeb Bush:

    Look, I think we could all use a lot of mercy in this world. And the pope is a loving person, and having absolution -- [allowing] the priest to give absolution is extraordinary, but I'm not surprised at all, i hope that we also focus on mercy for the unborn, the hundreds of thousands of babies that will die. I think we need to have a society that protects life from the beginning to end, and we should be a repentant society for sure. And mercy should be at the heart of everything we do.

  3. Pope Francis:

    Never forget that before us there is not the sin, but a repentant sinner ... a person who wishes to be accepted and forgiven.
