too noble for anger

I woke up in Maine. Invitingly grey and slightly sloshy outside. It's parents weekend. I am up and dressed and packed and all read to see my baby girl at 8am. My friend Ann sent me this which is rather too good not to share:

"Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet. Make all your friends feel there is something special in them. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the best. Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger."
