" Anger, 
if not restrained,
 is frequently more hurtful
 to us
 than the injury
 that provokes it. "

    Seneca








"We are what we pretend to be,
 so we must be careful 
what we pretend to be."

        Kurt Vonnegut









" To me a lush carpet
 of pine needles or spongy grass
 is more welcome 
than the most luxurious
 Persian rug. "

Helen Keller

Anger unrestrained is indiscriminate. Anger contained is high power.

Vonnegut's seems original -- and certainly very true and wise, so I'll go for him.

I pretend to be a blogger. I am careful to pretend to be a good blogger, but sometimes no one else is quite as convinced as I am.

Super photos to please and push away any anger! Anger takes all the fun out of life, and laughter, and all that is living.
