"He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city."
Moderation is better than muscle. Self-control is better than political power. Better to be patient than powerful. He who is slow to anger is better and more honorable than the mighty soldier. Better to have self-control than to conquer a city. It means that controlling your temper is better than being a hero who captures a city.
