“When you will not fly into a passion people know you are stronger than they are, because you are strong enough to hold in your rage, and they are not, and they say stupid things they wish they hadn’t said afterward. There’s nothing so strong as rage, except what makes you hold it in—that’s stronger. It’s a good thing not to answer to your enemies.” - A Little Princess (Frances Hodgson Burnett)
“Confronting our feelings and giving them appropriate expression always takes strength, not weakness. It takes strength to acknowledge our anger, and sometimes more strength yet to curb the aggressive urges anger may bring and to channel them into nonviolent outlets. It takes strength to face our sadness and to grieve and to let our grief and our anger flow in tears when they need to. It takes strength to talk about our feelings and to reach out for help and comfort when we need it.”
Fred Rogers (via creatingaquietmind)

“I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.” - Pride & Prejudice (Jane Austen)
