Anger. I am not getting my way. Control is my attempt to make the world align with my desires. To go beyond that control is to align myself with the universe.
Anger is destructive thought that separates the body from the soul.
There are no victims only volunteers.
Let go of anger, let go of pride. When bound by nothing you go beyond sorrow.
Disappointments are realities. Discouragements are my reactions.
The more complex, the more fear involved.
My destiny is in my own hands.
My thoughts and my feelings create my destiny.
Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart.
How poor are they who have no patience.
Some words from Mary’s sources:

I the imperfect, adore my own perfection. – Emerson
The service we render others is really the rent we pay for our room on earth. – Wilfred Grenfell
Half the failures in life arise from pulling in one’s horse as he is leaping. – Julius Charles hare and Augustus William Hare.
When they pitch ’em, I hit ’em, when they hit ’em I catch ’em. Essence of Zen; – Willy Mays
