Self Portrait With Anger, Paper Cutout, Phillip Schwartz

 

 

“What would you prefer? Am I to come to you with a stick, or with love in a spirit of gentleness?”

It can be tempting to pick up the proverbial stick, rather than thoughtfully and lovingly, resolving our differences. All parties involved will end up happier though, if we can calm our tempers and approach one another without allowing anger to influence our interaction. (If ever I’ve written anything as a reminder to myself, this is it.)
