"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 (via allthingsgreece)
"Whatever you desire is already connected in some way to who you are and what you now have. Find that way, follow the connection."
— Ralph Marston (via creatingaquietmind)
"To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do."
— Hermann Hesse (via creatingaquietmind)
