Sabbath Keeping

~ Kit Carson and Guinea Bird ~

"An angry man stirs up dissension,
and a hot-tempered one commits many sins."

"The best fighter is never angry." ~ Lao Tzu ~

"Let this truth be present to thee in the excitement of anger--that to be moved by passion is not manly, but that mildness and gentleness, as they are more agreeable to human nature, so also are they more manly. ...For in the same degree in which a man's mind is nearer to freedom from all passion, in the same degree also is it nearer to strength."
~ Marcus Antoninus ~

"Anger is a short madness." ~ Horace ~

"Anger is a weed, 
hate is the tree."

"Angry people are not always wise."
~ Jane Austin, Pride and Prejudice ~

"Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy." ~ Aristotle ~

"Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which is is poured." ~ Mark Twain ~

"Whatever begins in anger ends in shame."

"The best remedy for a short temper 
is a long walk."

"Anger begins with folly 
and ends with repentance."

"Getting angry doesn't solve anything." 

"Everyone should be quick to listen,
slow to speak and slow to become angry,
for man's anger does not bring about the 
righteous life that God desires."

Prayer Keeping ~ Jim, health ~ Jerry, health ~ elected leaders in our government ~ military ~ persecuted Christians ~

  2. Anger is something I am not quick to feel. One of the many blessings from God. I see people quick to anger and wonder what is it that makes us all so different from one another.

    Wishing you a great week.

  4. I really like the metaphor Mark Twain uses - the idea of acid eating away at our insides is a great warning!
