This is about unpleasant situations, which normally could have been avoided.
Conclusion: be wise and wait calmly, and let the water settle, so you can drink it clean.

Be Calm and Wise

Every human being can once in a while
Get upset or even angry without a smile
There are situations which create a malaise 
Some have a long fuse and some get ablaze

When we deal with human frustration,
We have to take this into consideration
For misunderstandings, illness or unknown factors
We should not jump to conclusions as fast reactors

If a friend gets nervous and acts in a strange way
First wait, don’t rush to act, rather think and pray
He could be tired or have a fatigue within
As a human being, he is like a fine violin.

Humans are affected by every word, written or said
In a positive or negative way, they will embrace or dread
Wait and try to understand what created his mood. 
Any harsh reaction is quite unnecessary and rude.

This is about unpleasant situations, which normally could have been avoided. 
Conclusion: be wise and wait calmly, and let the water settle, so you can drink it clean.

This is a wonderful write and so true. Some people tend to do two basic things in a conversation when something said upsets them: They get defensive or they get argumentative.

I've learned that if you can defuse their upset rather than doing the same thing they are doing, you're way ahead of the game - for in a way being the peacemaker is a game.

Wise words of a sage man...your words ring true and I practice this waiting method all the time..Things really do turn around, and sometimes only in a matter of minutes..

Much peace, love and light,

Emile you are a very wise man and I guess that is why I follow you.
My Mom taught us to think before we speak, it is often NOT what you say but how you say it to another. Once it's done, it can't be taken back. Great advice.

Newfie hugs, Rose

Extremely wise words, Emile. "let the water settle, so you can drink it clean" is priceless. Somebody has to be the one to keep cool and be patient.
