"The Nearer A Man Comes To
A Calm Mind, The Closer
He Is To Strength!"
- Marcus Aurelius
Yoga Man Meditation

"Keep this thought helpful when you feel a fit of anger coming on—it isn't manly to be enraged. Rather, kindness and civility are more human, and therefore manlier. A true man doesn't give way to hatred and annoyance, and such a person has strength, courage, and will—unlike the angry and complaining.
