FYI I am trying to stop letting things pile up on my (physical and electronic) desk, so here come a random assortment of things I noted on my Kindle.
We lose power and risk our agency when we allow anger to influence our decisions and control us. Example from the Book of Mormon:
For behold, his designs were to stir up the Lamanites to anger against the Nephites; this he did that he might usurp great power over them, and also that he might gain power over the Nephites by bringing them into bondage.
-Alma 43:8, referring to Zarahemnah
