Stoke Stoically

Just as we learned to avoid being burned by learning not to touch fire, so too should we learn not to stoke our anger with what we know will provoke it. Nobody is considered weak for not being able to hold fire, yet we foolishly believe that we are considered strong for holding onto what angers us. Avoiding anger is a strength.
