"I've learned that one reason why people cling to anger so stubbornly is because they sense that once hate is gone, they will have to deal with the pain."

"I am responsible for my day; for how I feel and for how I do. Nobody can make me feel anything. If I have a rotten day, I am the one who allowed it to be that way. If I have a great day, I am the one who deserves the credit for being positive. It is not the responsibility of other people to change so that I may feel better. I am the only one who is in charge of my life."

"You can change the way you feel, by how you think."

I love these — esp. the first one. Last week, someone I know got extremely angry about something that was so trivial. And I mean very mad, not just a little "ticked off." This quote nails it: I think the anger kept her from addressing the real issue, which is that she has a lot of pain. I'm very sorry for her, but I think there are some different choices she could make, to help her situation. And "going postal" isn't the best choice. :?)
