while every pessimist would keep the worlds at a standstill.

and that some people were just born with the temperament
to get angrier faster than others.

But the instinct of the anger response
can be trained through conscious repetition,
visualization, and coaching.
Visualization is seeing the event
we desire to master in our mind's eye.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

- Anais Nin
