A man s discretion
A man’s discretion makes him slow to anger, And it is his glory to overlook a transgression.
Discretion is not the better part of biography. Lytton Strachey
Discretion is the perfection of reason, and a guide to us in all the duties of life. La Bruyere
A man of wrath stirs up strife, and a man given to anger commits and causes much transgression.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger appeases contention.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
A hot-tempered man stirs up conflict, but a man slow to anger calms strife.
The wicked is snared by the transgression of his lips: but the just shall come out of trouble.
When the wicked increase, transgression increases; But the righteous will see their fall.
