Be patient and calm; no one can catch a fish with anger. (Herbert Hoover, 31st U.S. president)

Being President during the Great Depression must have been very difficult. Political voices and actions were anything but peaceful (much like today!). The fisherman who stirs up the water will scare away the fish. Likewise, in life patience and calm will go much further toward finding solutions than shouting and shoving.

Don’t sin by letting anger control you. Think about it overnight and remain silent. (Psalm 4:4) … Control your temper, for anger labels you a fool. (Ecclesiastes 7:9)
