“There are some passions of which the expressions excite no sort of sympathy, but before we are acquainted with what gave occasion to them,serve rather to disgust and provoke us against them. The furious behavior of an angry man is more likely to exasperate us against himself than against his enemies.”
Adam Smith, The Theory of Moral Sentiments, 1759.

feel free to use the quote, i can give an exact page number and publishing info from the book, if you want. and whenever you’re able to look at the new stuff i will, as always, look forward to your thoughts. i took a hiatus for a few weeks to do a different writing project that’s done for the moment, so i have some pent-up posts pushing to get out of me… i hope you’re well and good luck with exams…. enjoy the spring.
