  • Disagree. It's not education but the ability to listen. Education indicates retaining knowledgeable which is not addressed in Frost's statement.

  • I guess. But I think it is more important to avoid acting on feelings of anger. It is impossible to read everything and have no reaction. It is human nature to feel emotions. Just not good to express your anger.
