Because forgiveness necessitates strength, the remark emphasises that forgiveness should not be viewed as a sign of weakness. Forgiveness is a change of heart that occurs when a victim, rather than retaliating, chooses to forgive mistakes or offences.

To forgive, one must be able to control their wrath. Anger drives us to seek vengeance and impairs our ability to think. To forgive, one must understand the difference between offender and crime.
