• Ecclesiastes 7:8-10
    The end of a thing is better than its beginning;
    The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.
    Do not hasten in your spirit to be angry,
    For anger rests in the bosom of fools.
    Do not say,
    "Why were the former days better than these?"
    For you do not inquire wisely concerning this.

     
  • James 1:19-20
    So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
     
  • Proverbs 14:29
    He who is slow to wrath has great understanding,
    But he who is impulsive exalts folly.

     
  • Luke 9:62
    But Jesus said to him, "No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."
