Agree? “A Little Too Much Anger Can Destroy More Than You Would Ever Imagine.”

"A little too much anger, too often or at the wrong time, can destroy more than you would ever imagine. Above all, mind what you say."

-- Marilynne Robinson, Gilead

How I love all the novels of Marilynne Robinson. Housekeeping, so brilliant. I just read Lila for the first time, which made me want to re-read Gilead. It is a rare kind of book: a novel told from the perspective of a deeply good person. A beautiful, beautiful book.
