Letting go of anger

Use anger as a form of motivation

“I appeal to all who belong to the generation of the 21st century to be determined to create a happier, more peaceful world. Use your intelligence in a positive way, to cultivate the warm-heartedness that can be the catalyst of constructive change. When the education system encourages only materialistic goals with little concern for universal human values, cultivating warm-heartedness can make all the difference.” – The Dalai Lama
