anger is a short madness

g-plant08

Wrath is a sorceress (lit. a transformer), as is said in stories ; for it bereaveth and depriveth man of his right under- standing, and changeth his whole countenance, and transforms him from man into beast’s nature.

Early English proverbs, chiefly of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, with illustrative quotations

To meet an old friend in a distant country is like the delight of rain after a long drought. (Chinese).

There’s my thoom, I’ll ne’er beguile thee. (Scotch).

"It was an old custom in Scotland, when lovers plighted their troth, to lick the thumbs of each other’s right hands, which they pressed together and vowed fidelity." Andrew Cheviot.

Fellowship with God means warfare with the world. Charles E. Fuller

Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the counter nance of his friend. (Prov. xxvii : 17}.

Some people confuse acceptance with apathy, but there’s all the difference in the world. Apathy fails to distinguish between what can and what cannot be helped; acceptance makes that distinction. Apathy paralyzes the will-to-action; acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible burdens.
