  15. 15. “I shouldn't have called my neighbour’s wife a dirty filthy old woman, now she baths twice daily and she has nagged her husband into paying for a facelift. She’s not only clean and beautiful, but she thanks me for my thoughtless outburst.” <br />-Nazam Joseph<br />
  16. 16. "Never accept words meant to hurt. Turn them back because they are the responsibility of the speaker. <br />When you are caught off guard, hold the emotions in silence for a moment and tell them to be still. <br />It takes longer to forget than it does to forgive - and time heals when we give it the power.“ Joyce Sequichie<br />
