Quotes that resonate, from ‘How to Keep Your Cool: An Ancient Guide to Anger Management’ by Seneca, selected, translated and introduced by James Romm.

Let’s consider, every time we find it hard to forgive, whether it’s to our benefit that everyone be implacable.

What is more glorious than to change one’s wrath into friendship?

Someone gets angry; have at him with your good deeds.

The quarrel immediately drops away if abandoned by either side; there’s no fight unless on equal terms.
