Quiet reflection

I found this quote while looking for "something" that I can place close to my heart today.  I won't go into the reasons for my somber mood and post, but I thought the quote I found was a gentle reminder to myself.  It seems as if I find the gentle nudges I need, when I need them.  
So, when my heart aches over the loss of something that gave me great joy, I am reminded of the kind souls and good hearts that surround me every day of my life.  I am blessed and grateful for every single one of you. May I always remember that I need to be tolerant of others and their views.  My views are just that, mine and I shouldn't be so arrogant to think that they should be everyone's.  

Here's the quote:

"The key to peace in your life is to be tolerant of all others.
We can learn from each other, but when you have no tolerance,
you lose the ability to learn and advance as a human being.
If we are open to others beliefs, we make our own beliefs stronger.
If we are closed to what other knowledge is available,
then we are no better than hypocrits with closed minds."

He who angers you, controls you.

And my favorite.......You can't control what others say or do, but you can control your reaction.
