“Buddhism describes getting angry as being like picking up a red-hot coal in your bare hands to throw at someone else. I remember one occasion on which His Holiness The Dalai Lama was asked whether it was ever useful or legitimate to get angry with someone else. He sat in silence for several minutes, exactly like a chess player meditating on the consequences of all the possible moves, and then having exhausted all the possibilities, he simply said, ‘No.”
Guy Claxton, The Heart of Buddhism: Practical Wisdom for an Agitated World.

My greatest hope

My greatest hope is to laugh as much as I can, whenever I can. To be happy. To have work for my hands that brings me fulfillment. To love someone with passion.  

Here's my motto

and if that doesn't work, then say the hell with it and walk away.................................
