A single flash

Standard

Good works gathered in a thousand ages,
Such as deeds of generosity,
Or offerings to the blissful ones-
A single flash of anger shatters them.

No evil is there similar to anger,
No austerity to be compared with patience.

-Shantideva

I can’t say I know many people who wouldn’t gain from knowing this… (with specific emphasis on myself!)
