“Do you know why we SHOUT when angry? A Hindu sage who arrived at the Ganges River to take bath found a group of family members shouting in anger at each other.
He then turned to his disciples, and asked, “Why do people shout in anger at each other?” The disciples thought for a while. Then one of them said, “Because we lose our patience, we shout.”
Some disciples gave their answers but none satisfied the sage and the other disciples.
Finally the sage explained, “When two people are angry at each other, their hearts grow distant. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the louder they will have to shout to hear each other. Compare this to two people in love. They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, because their hearts are very close. The distance between them is very small.”
