SN 11.4 Vepacitti: The Discourse about Vepacitti

If one gets angry at another angry person, he makes things worse for himself. The one who doesn’t repay an angry person with anger, he wins the hard battle.

Even though the strength of a fool is called power, in reality there is no power there. No one can challenge the patience of the one who is guarded by Dhamma.
