The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides us from ourselves.

Let love be your choice

Love those who hate you, ignore you, demean you, marginalize you. For they are the ones who need your love the most.

Seek to understand those who make no attempt to understand. Forgive those who hurt you, and even those who want to continue hurting you.

Forgive, understand, love, for if you don’t your life will soon be filled with anger, retribution, hostility. That’s not the kind of life you want to live.

You cannot control the choices of others. Yet you never have to let those choices overwhelm your life with negativity.

Let love be your choice, no matter what others do. Choose truth, integrity, compassion, caring, to fill your moments and your days.

Breathe in the pure, fresh, wondrous energy of existence. And let your light brightly shine for all.

— Ralph Marston
