He who smiles rather than rages is always the stronger


"He who smiles rather than rages is always the stronger."
- Japanese Proverb

"A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger."
Proverbs 15:1

Lord give that I can always manage to control myself
and that I can calm down others by my friendliness.


Dutch version / Nederlands > Hij die glimlacht in plaats van te razen is altijd sterker
