“My dear boy,” said a father, “take a word of advice from an old man who loves peace. An insult is like mud; it will brush off much better when it is dry. Wait a little till you both are cool; then the broken relationship will be easily mended. If you go now, it will be only to quarrel.”
Patience will induce peace.
18 A hot-tempered man stirs up strife,
But the slow to anger calms a dispute.
