A hot-tempered senator exploded one day in mid-session and began to shout, “Half of this Senate is made up of cowards and corrupt politicians!”
All the other Senators protested and demanded that the angry Senator withdrew his statement otherwise he be suspended for the session.
The angry Senator cynically replied, “Okay, I’ll withdraw my previous statement. I now say, ‘Half of this Senate is NOT made up of cowards and corrupt politicians!’ ”
* Beware of our speech when we lose our temper. A person speaking in anger may regret later the words he utters.
* Some assertive persons would go all the way to speak their minds even at the risk of facing negative consequences. Would this be wise?
