Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around us in awareness.
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
But we know:
Even hate against that which is low
disfigures the face.
Even anger over injustice
makes the voice coarse. Oh, we
who wanted to prepare the soil for friendliness
were unable to be friendly ourselves.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
