Advice for all of us

I love reading the journal entries. Since I only see each student about 90 minutes a week, the journals help me know more about each one. Here’s a thought-provoking entry:
 
" I read this poem in a Chinese publishing book. It was written by Aristotle. I think I should keep it in mind and it will help me to control my temper and have a better behavior in the rest of my life.
 
‘Anyone can become angry – that is easy.
But to be angry with the right person,
to the right degree,
at the right time,
for the right purpose,
and in the right way
– that is not easy.’ "
