The Control Of The Temper

      A mild answer turns away wrath,
      But a harsh word stirs up anger.
      A man without self-control
      Is a ruined city whose wall is broken.
      A fool gives way to his wrath,
      But a wise man restrains his anger.
      A fool's anger is known at once,
      But a sensible man heeds not an insult.
      A man's wisdom makes him patient,
      It is his glory to overlook faults.
      He who is patient is better than a warrior,
      And he who rules his temper than he who takes a city.
