Thomas a Kempis: wisdom and anger

Thursday, September 3, 2020
    Feast of Gregory the Great, Bishop of Rome, Teacher, 604
    A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.
    —Proverbs 29:11 (NIV)
    When anger enters the mind, wisdom departs.
    ... Thomas à Kempis (1380-1471), Hortulus Rosarum, quoted in The Story of the “Imitatio Christi”, Leonard Abercrombie Wheatley, London: Elliot Stock, 1891, IV.ii, p. 212 (see the book)
    See also Prov. 29:11; Ps. 4:4; Rom. 12:19-21; Eph. 4:26
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me the wisdom to govern my tongue.
