News Item 256. Mishlei 16-32 (Willpower)

new proverb was posted on Wednesday, August 10 in the Mishlei section. This proverb talks about the willpower that enables a person to show forbearance despite a justified feeling of anger. Mishlei compares such willpower to that which a fighter exerts when he forces his enemy to yield to him in a physical struggle. The point that Mishlei is making here is that it takes more willpower to control forces within a person than to make another person to yield to him in battle.
