Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    Gestion de la colère est extrêmement important dans la vie, parce que la colère est une épée autodestructeur très trompeuse. La colère détruit totalement la personne qui la possède plutôt que ceux contre lesquels il se dirige. Mythologie grecque nous conduit également à croire que chaque fois que les dieux veulent détruire quelqu'un, ils font toujours lui / elle en colère en premier. Alors s'il vous plaît ne vous une faveur et apprendre à gérer votre colère de sorte qu'il ne serait jamais capable de vous détruire, jamais!
