Fester Quotations

It's OK to argue with your friends. Guys can do it better than girls, usually, but if you ever get into a fight with a true friend or a spouse or a boyfriend, get it out, fight, be angry for five minutes, and then move past it. Don't let it fester; don't hold a grudge. If you do, that's when it will get worse and worse.
Ike Barinholtz

A broken bone can heal, but the wound a word opens can fester forever.

Lee Strobel
