"I've Taped A List To My Bathroom Mirror. It's My Most Violated List. . . Anger. I Gave The Finger To An ATM. You See, The ATM Charged Me A $1.75 Fee For Withdrawl. A Dollar Seventy-five? That's Bananas. So I Flipped Off The Screen. As Julie Tells Me, When You Start Making Rude Gestures To Inanimate Objects, It's Time To Work On Your Anger Issues. Mine Is Not The Shouting, Pulsing-vein-in-the Forehead Rage. Like My Dad, I Rarely Raise My Voice. My Anger Problem Is More One Of Long-lasting Resentment. It's A Heap Of Real Or Perceived Slights That Eventually Build Up Into A Mountain Of Bitterness. . . Get Some Perspective. . . I Ask Myself The Question God Asked Jonah. 'Do You Do Well To Be Angry?'. . .The World Will Not End. . . Mute Your Petty Resentment."

Always add, always walk, always proceed; neither stand still, nor go back, nor deviate; he that standeth still proceedeth not; he goeth back that continueth not; he deviateth that revolteth; he goeth better that creepeth in his way than he that moveth out of his way."
Author: Augustine Of Hippo
