Arthur Schopenhauer
“It is a wise thing to be polite; consequently, it is a stupid thing to be rude. To make enemies by unnecessary and willful incivility, is just as insane a proceeding as to set your house on fire. For politeness is like a counter--an avowedly false coin, with which it is foolish to be stingy.”
Arthur Schopenhauer, The Wisdom of Life and Counsels and Maxims

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”
