Anger is a condition in which the tongue works faster than the mind. In anger, be slow to speak and quick to listen. If we are patient in one moment of anger, we will escape a hundred days of sorrow (Chinese proverb).  Let's learn from the article that follows inspired by the writing of an unknown author.  

Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too.-Will Smith

As the story goes, an old grandfather, whose grandson came to him with anger at a schoolmate who had done him an injustice, said, "Let me tell you a story. I too, at times, have felt a great hate for those who have taken so much, with no sorrow for what they do. But hate wears you down, and does not hurt your enemy. It is like taking poison and wishing your enemy would die. I have struggled with these feelings many times."

Don't do something permanently stupid because you are temporarily upset!

 He continued, "It is as if there are two wolves inside me; one is good and does no harm. He lives in harmony with all around him and does not take offense when no offense was intended. He will only fight when it is right to do so, and in the right way."

"But the other wolf, ah! He is full of anger. The littlest thing will set him into a fit of temper. He fights everyone, all the time, for no reason. He cannot think because his anger and hate are so great. It is hard to live with these two wolves inside me, for both of them try to dominate my spirit."

The boy looked intently into his grandfather's eye and asked, "Which one wins, grandfather?"

The grandfather solemnly said, "The one I feed."

By Tim Pedrosa

Holding onto anger is like holding onto a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you're the one who gets burned. Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten. ~Buddha
