“Speak when you are angry—and you will make the best speech you’ll ever regret.”
Laurence J. Peter, educator and best known for The Peter Principle
Translation for Adults
When you become angry it is very easy to speak and act in ways that you will later regret. When you are angry and your adrenaline is pumping, you can speak without thinking. Even if what you say is true, when spoken in anger, then it is usually better left unsaid. Think before you speak, even in the heat of the argument. It’s the only way to avoid words you will later regret. It may take an incredible amount of self-control, but the extra seconds of thought may be the difference between keeping your cool and saying something you might regret.
Translation for Kids
Being angry is normal. You must remember to control your anger. Anger could cause you to say the wrong words or act badly. You wouldn’t want to hurt someone because of your anger. You wouldn’t want to be in trouble because of your anger. Martial arts teaches you self-control.
Think before you speak or act. Use your self- control to protect others from bad words or actions. You’ll feel great and so will the people around you.
