Whoever is slow to anger has great understanding,
but he who has a hasty temper exalts folly.
A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,
but he who is slow to anger quiets contention.
Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.
Good sense makes one slow to anger,
and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
