Still my favorite quote

Every so often I have to remind myself that I know this:

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Siddhartha Gautama (a.k.a Buddha)

Wisdom from 2,500 years ago still needs to be learned today.
