~ Marcus Antonius ~
"Anger makes dull men witty. 
But it keeps them poor."

"Temper is a weapon that we hold by the blade." 
"A soft answer turns away wraith but grievous words stir up anger." 
~ Proverbs 15:1 ~
"Speak when you are angry and you will make the best speech you will every regret."  ~ Ambrose Bierce ~
"Anger begins with folly and ends with repentance."
"You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger." ~ Buddha ~
"An angry man opens his mouth and shuts his eyes."

"Whatever is begun in anger, 
ends in shame."

"People won't have time for you if you are always angry or complaining." 
~ Steven Hawking ~
"The greatest remedy for anger is delay." 
"There's nothing wrong with anger provided you use it constructively." 
~ Wayne Dyer ~
"Don't get the impression that you arouse my anger. 
You see, one can only be angry with those he respects." 
"He who angers you, conquers you." ~ Elizabeth Kenny ~

"Know this, my beloved brothers: 
let every person be quick to hear, 
slow to speak, 
slow to anger, 
for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God."

  1. Words so true. Hope you are having a nice Sunday, Sandra. I am thankful for the prayers for blog friend Trace. Praise the Lord she is fine.
    Please continue to pray for bf Beth who will undergo cancer surgery.

    God bless your week, Sandra.

  2. Thank you for these wonderful thoughts and scriptures. Please pray for my two sons - Alex and Joshua. One is making some very poor decisions and is now trying to get his younger brother to follow his lead. Thank you. We are trusting God to help both of these boys. Thanks.

  3. P.S. I started a new blog after some security issues with the old one. Please feel free to visit, comment and follow if you would like. Thank you for your blog posts. I surely do agree with your point of view!

  4. You have such a faithful and committed walk. Your heart just shines through your posts- xo Diana

  5. Anger we like to think we have righteous or justified anger - as we poison ourselves to spite others! Great post as always - Grateful God often delays my responses (get so ticked I can't respond - then get time to cool off and reflect prior to responding!)
    Love to you my sister in the 'hood - life is interesting isn't it?

  6. Wonderful post.
    I have to tell you I read one of your comments on a blog featuring hats...when I read it, I was drinking an iced coffee and spit it all over my screen....hahhhaa...

  7. How helpful in my dayly situation!! To find inner peace is not possible feeding bad feelings. Peace is coming into a hart whitch is patient.
    Thank you! I need it!

  8. This was my favorite:

    ""Temper is a weapon that we hold by the blade."
    ~ Sir James M. Barrie ~"


  9. Mildred, Beth's name was added.

    Deb, Alex and Joshua's names were added.

    Diana, that would be the heart of Jesus 'cause mine is black as sin. But thank you for your cherished words!

    LindaSue, like the Chinese say, "may you live in interesting times"...ugh.

    BJ, oops! It's true, there aren't many white women wearing hats; it's mostly the black women...and me -LOL-.

    Dori, you bless me by coming here, thank you.

    Karen, ouch. That one was a tough one for me...oh so true!

  10. Hope you are doing well Sandra. I get so much inspiration every time I visit here. I feel relaxed and often comforted when I read your words. Thank you for sharing yourself with all of us!

    Love, Meegan
