Speak when you are angry - and you will make the best speech you'll ever regret.
       - Laurence J. Peter

Anger helps strengthen out a problem like a fan helps straighten out a pile of papers.
       - Susan Mancotte

Anger is a bad adviser.
       - French Proverb

He who flings mud, loses a lot of ground.
       - Anonymous

Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.
       - Joan Lunden


 If what we are doing with our anger is not achieving the desired result, it would seem logical to try something different.  - Harriet Lerner                                                                                                
       

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were. 
       - Cherie Carter-Scott

I can't believe it myself... I have nothing to say, I think maybe it's because my mom taught me that if I have nothing nice to say to say nothing at all..  I'm really glad I have wonderful loving parents.......

Marilyn - Great quotes to reflect on! It is true that anger never leads to anything good - it's even bad for our health! I always say - Just let it GO!

Thanks for sharing - Paige
