Sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
~Author Unknown









If you're angry at a loved one, hug that person. And mean it. You may not want to hug - which is all the more reason to do so. It's hard to stay angry when someone shows they love you, and that's precisely what happens when we hug each other.
~Walter Anderson, The Confidence Course, 1997
