A Quote by Bishop JOSEPHhttp://www.antiochianl on god, christianity, gospel, service, forgiveness, anger, love, people, world, and gratitude

We cannot serve anyone with whom we have animosity.  This is why the Gospels stress forgiveness.  Our Lord even forgave those who crucified Him, crying out from the cross, "Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do." (Luke 23:34)  If we are to serve the world, we must first be able to forgive everyone and anyone.  The slightest amount of unforgiveness or anger towards anyone is enough to keep us from God, for in God there is only love.

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on anger, self, grief, and loneliness

I hold my face in my two hands.    
No, I am not crying.   
I hold my face in my two hands    
to keep the loneliness warm -     
two hands protecting,    
two hands nourishing,    
two hands preventing   
my soul from leaving me     
in anger.

Thich Nhat Hanh

A Quote by jack Kornfield on anger, letting go, self-acceptance, compassion, and zen

In deep self-acceptance grows a compassionate understanding. As one Zen master said when I asked if he ever gets angry, 'Of course I get angry, but then a few minutes later I say to myself, 'What's the use of this,' and I let it go.'

The only justice is to follow the sincere intuition of the soul, angry or gentle. Anger is just, and pity is just, but judgment is never just.
