    “Anger ... it's a paralyzing emotion ... you can't get anything done. People sort of think it's an interesting, passionate, and igniting feeling — I don't think it's any of that — it's helpless ... it's absence of control — and I need all of my skills, all of the control, all of my powers ... and anger doesn't provide any of that — I have no use for it whatsoever."----[Interview with CBS radio host Don Swaim, September 15, 1987.]”

    will make camp in perfection

    You are soul, and you are love,...
    No more questions now as to what it is we're doing here”
    ― Coleman Barks
