When you find yourself reacting with anger or opposition to any person or circumstance, realize that you are only struggling with yourself.
—Deepak Chopra (I don’t like the work of Mr. Chopra and even less the way he commercializes it, but his quotation regarding anger is quite accurate and has helped me from time to time).
