When you react emotionally, it helps to look at other's reasoning to bring you back to rational thought. Here are some from the vault.

"One will rarely err if extreme actions be ascribed to vanity, ordinary actions to habit, and mean actions to fear."
-Friedrich Nietzsche
"Work out of your own salvation. Do not depend on others."

- Buddha
"However far the stream flows, it never forgets its source." 

- Nigerian proverb
"That which angers you conquers you." 

-Elizabeth Kenny
"Telling us to obey instinct is like telling us to obey people. People say different things: so do instincts. Our instincts are at war...each instinct if you will listen to it, will claim to be gratified at the expense of the rest..."

-Clive Staples Lewis
"Avoid destructive thinking. Improper negative thoughts sink people. A ship can sail around the world many, many times, but let just enough water get into the ship and it will sink. Just so will the human mind. Let enough negative thoughts or improper thoughts get into the human mind and the person sinks just like the ship."

-Alfred Montapert
"If you lose money you lose much. if you lose friends you lose more, if you lose faith you lose all."

-E. Roosevelt
"Movements born in hatred very quickly take on the characteristics of the thing the oppose." 

-J.S. Habgood

"A man does not sin by commision only but often by omission." 
- Marcus Aurelius
"Do not be wise in words, be wise in deeds." 

- Publilius Syrus
