"Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the idea that something is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all"

One of the Jedi Masters said this, but I can't think exactly which one…

"A Jedi shall not draw his weapon unless he feels that his life is in danger."

I like that one…

"Can't we all just… get along?"

Although this is a very famous quote, I cannot remember who said it. I wish I could remember. Malcom X?

Anyway, getting back on topic…

Forget anger toward all who have offended you,
For from anger springs a multitude of wrongs.

The face's smile and the heart's joy are slain by anger.
Does there exist a greater enemy than one's own anger?

Here is the price of freedom:
Your every drop of courage,
ounce of pain, pint of blood.
Paid in advance.

If you keep thinking "That man has abused me," holding it as a much-cherished grievance, your anger will never be allayed. If you can put down that fury-inducing thought, your anger will lessen. Fury will never end fury, it will just ricochet on and on. Only putting it down will end such an abysmal state.
