Today was one of those trying days for me. As I was struggling to keep my patience with some people I was finding difficult to talk to and with, the following words of Angela kept coming to mind:
You will accomplish more by kind words and a courteous manner than by anger or sharp rebuke, which should never be used except in necessity.
Beware of trying to accomplish anything by force.
I must remember that and treat all with respect and gentleness.
