Note to Self

A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Mockers stir up a city,
but wise men turn away anger.
A fool gives full vent to his anger,
but a wise man keeps himself under control.
An angry man stirs up dissension,
and a hot-tempered one commits many sins.
For as churning the milk produces butter,
and as twisting the nose produces blood,
so stirring up anger produces strife.

Proverbs 15:1; 29:8, 11, 22; 30:33 (HCSB)
