Good stuff

On envy:
"Will we... destroy envy within us? Or will we allow envy to destroy our relationships and then to destroy us?.... It must not be welcomed in our hearts; it must not be pampered, nursed and fed with our pride, self-pity, resentment, bitterness, and ingratitude."

On anger:
"The media loves to display this anger as a way to capture our attention and increase their ratings: two talking heads on the divided screen screaming at each other. Beware: do not feed on the toxic anger of our popular culture.... When you're listening to the radio, or watching the news, and you're hearing all the angry commentary about what's going wrong in America, and it gets all those chemicals churning around in your brain, and you feel yourself getting angrier and angrier and angrier, remember: be "slow to anger, for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness God requires" (James 1:20)."
