Short-tempered people do foolish things,
and schemers are hated.
Star's Interpretation: The worse tempered people you meet are be the ones who are only acting a fool because they know they are wrong from the jump! People who have a short fuse scare me because they usually have an exaggerated reaction to ordinary occurrence. If you fly off the handle when faced with a problem...you don't make good decisions and bad decisions can put you in the proverbial trick bag! A Roman poet wrote: "one who cannot restrain their anger will wish undone, what their temper and irritation prompted them to do.” So make it a practice to avoid folk who lead with their MOUTHS instead of their MINDS. Because as my mother used to say: "Don't let your mouth get you into trouble that your behind can't get you out of."
