"If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow."
He got out of bed past travel time to work.

His boss reprimanded him for being late. He felt bad the rest of the day.

Coming home, he raised his voice on his wife. Tired, his wife got irritated. She lashed back at him.

And he regretted his actions later.
Note: My Mom & Dad have this strong relationship between them. They can lash out in moments of anger and forget about it in the next. Though, it seems, the repercussions of one's reactions to small irritations can be far-reaching. I've been guilty so many times for being irritable the whole day just because I woke up late for work. Have you been, too? ~Dette
