Think About it Thursdays

Confucius (551 BC - 479 BC)

Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

Forget injuries, never forget kindnesses.

It does not matter how slowly you go so long as you do not stop.

What the superior man seeks is in himself; what the small man seeks is in others.

When anger rises, think of the consequences.

My favorite quote from your list is, "When anger rises, think of the consequences." That is so true in marriage and I try to remember things like that.

Nancy's favorite was mine as well.

Thank you for inspiring thought.
