Sabbath Keeping

"He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty;
and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city." 

"For every minute you are angry,
you lose sixty seconds of peace of mind."
"A man is about as big as the things that make him angry." 
"Never go to bed mad. Stay up and fight." ~ Phyllis Diller ~
"Angry people are not always wise." 
"Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will ever regret."
~ Ambrose Bierce ~
"It is wise to direct your anger towards problems - not people; to focus your energies on answers - not excuses." ~ William Arthur Ward
"Anger is only one letter short of danger."

"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." ~ Mark Twain
"Anyone who angers you, conquers you." 
~ unknown ~
"Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools." ~ Albert Einstein ~
"In a controversy, the instant we feel anger, we have already ceased striving for truth and have begun striving for ourselves." ~ Abraham J. Heschel ~
"How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it."
~ Marcus Aurelius
"Anger makes you smaller while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you are."
~ Cherie Carter-Scott ~
"There are two things a person should never be angry at, 
what they can help, and what they cannot." 
~ Plato ~
"Get mad, then get over it." 
"Whatever is begun in anger,
ends in shame."

"But now ye also put off all these;
 anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, 
filthy communication out of your mouth."

If you have a prayer request, please give me the name which will be kept for one week. Around the world, people are praying.

  4. Thank you for these scriptures on this important subject! God bless and be with you this week!

  5. One of our middle school teachers put a sign on his door that reads: Don't raise your voice, improve your argument (Desmond Tutu). I like that! :) Have a great new week. Tammy

  6. Great post! I have been working really hard not to let my Ms Pearl come out in me and I have almost set a record and proud of it. haha
    These were great to read and so many good ones I can't pick a favorite.
    Really happy to see you at my site this morning. Yes Festival Hill is an amazing place to visit and I love helping them out now and then. The concerts they have are something I never thought living where I do that I could experience such gifted artist playing in a incredible gorgeous place.
    The grounds are just as pretty as the concert hall.
    Sorry I get cared away talking about it.
    Have a great week.

  7. What a great collection on this subject! I'm saving a bunch of these....
