MEANING

“To err is human; to forgive, divine.”
Alexander Pope (1688-1744)  English poet 

Something that you say that means that it is natural for people to make mistakes and it is important to forgive people when they do.

EXAMPLE

“You’d think he could find it in his heart to forgive her. To err is human and all that.”

HISTORY
The popular saying created by line 525 of Pope’s poem An Essay on Criticism, Part II (1711)
In the original poem, as published in 1711, the line is given as “To err is humane; to forgive, divine.” This is not because Pope erred in his spelling or believed that making a mistake was a compassionate thing to do. At the time, humane was the common spelling used for the word human.
