Resolving Conflict

Staying calm is the best way to take the wind out of an angry person’s sails.
Anonymous

When you have nothing to say, say nothing; a weak defense strengthens your opponent, and silence is less injurious than a weak reply.
Charles Caleb Colton

Never wrestle with a pig. You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
Anonymous

He who seeks the truth must listen to his opponent.
Isaac Reggio

Good conflict leads to a resolution in which both parties feel peace, and a new platform for communication and cooperation is established between them. Bad conflict leads to a victory for one and a loss for the other, which results in hidden resentment and bitterness stored away for a future fight.
Tommy Nelson

Control Your Anger

A wise man controls his temper. He knows that anger causes mistakes.
Proverbs 14:29 (TLB)

When anger enters the mind, wisdom departs.
Thomas à Kempis

How much more grievous are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.
Marcus Aurelius Antoninus

Never let yourself be driven by impatience or anger. One always regrets having followed the first dictates of his emotions.
de Belle Isle

Yogi Berra

Anger

You can tell the size of a man by the size of the things that make him mad.
Adlai Stevenson

A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.
Proverbs 29:11

We may think people make us angry, but most of the time they simply reveal our own selfishness. What usually makes us angry is our lack of control over people and circumstances.
Gary and Norma Smalley

A hot-tempered man must pay the penalty; if you rescue him, you will have to do it again.
Proverbs 19:19

The Power of a Smile

Smiling conveys self-acceptance and an accepting attitude toward others. It increases others’ confidence in themselves and in you. Smiling makes you appear approachable, friendly, relaxed, open and comfortable.
Roger Crawford

Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.

I used to be very self-conscious. I used to wish I was pretty. My cousin Georgia always taught me that if you smile, people will like you.
Ella Fitzgerald

Smile if it kills you. The physiology of smiling diffuses a lot of anger and angst. It makes your body and soul feel better.
Tom Peters

The smile reaches down deeply and relaxes us. A doctor would not be able to find anything in his medicine bag that takes effect so quickly, so harmoniously.
Alain

A Happy Marriage

To develop the principle of wholeheartedness in marriage, go the second mile in the little, everyday things. Life demands this, because our lives are merely the totality of countless little things.
Catherine Marshall

Never go to bed angry. Say what annoys you, then finish with “I love you.” Trust me, it makes the morning brighter.
Joan Rivers

Perhaps most endearing is my dad’s great belly laugh when my irreverent mom tells a joke. In this, he taught me an equally important and valuable lesson – to love and enjoy my spouse in things big and small.
Jennifer Granholm

The basic remedy for most couples is for each to give more to the other.
Dr. Theodore Rubin

It takes two people to have a marriage, but only one is necessary to change it. We end up feeling helpless in our marriages because we can’t control our partners. The truth is that we need only learn to control ourselves.
Melvyn Kinder and Connell Cowan
