-- Comprehensive information addressing violence awareness and prevention in the workplace --

Gandhi had a sign reading: 
"When you are in the right you can afford to keep your temper;
and when you are in the wrong, you cannot afford to lose it."

"The degree of one's emotion varies inversely with one's
knowledge of the facts -- the less you know the hotter you get."

"Speak in anger and you'll give the greatest speech you'll ever regret."

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
--Chinese Proverb
