Righteous indignation:  your own wrath as opposed to the shocking bad temper of others.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

The final proof of greatness lies in being able to endure criticism without resentment.”   —   Elbert Hubbard

(NOT to be confused with the Scientology guy!    El-Bert is responsible for many of my favorite quotes.  One of them being: “Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive.”  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

(This must be in the vein of:  forgive and forget.  It’s not always easy to forgive, but it usually can be done.  For most of us though, it is nearly impossible to forget.  Once you get past the forgiveness aspect you generally stay in a guarded state, like the Russian proverb:  trust, but verify.  Can we ever truly forget a wrong, or is this just a pleasant platitude?  Hmm.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
