Do not let the sun go down on your wrath – Abba Agathon

Abba Agathon used to say, “I have never lain down to sleep and kept anger in my heart, or even a thought of enmity against any man; and I have never allowed any man to lie down to sleep keeping any anger against me.

[Abba Agathon, Apophthegmata Patrum]
