Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools.Anger often comes when our ego-based desires go unmet. If we had no ego-based desire, what could we be angry about?
~ King James version ~
After a bitter quarrel, some resentment must remain.
What can one do about it?
Therefore the sage keeps his half of the bargain
But does not exact his due.
~ from Verse 79 of the Tao Te Ching ~
