A Different Kind of Duel

According to an informal account of curious conflict resolution, Otto von Bismarck, Chancellor of Germany (1871 to 1890), had such a “beef” with the scientist Rudolf Virchow, that he challenged him to a duel.

Dr. Virchow, as the one who was challenged, got to make the choice of weapons. Engaged at the time in "investigations relating to trichinosis," the good doctor opted for less than conventional arms.

“My arms; there they are—those two sausages. One of them is full of trichinae; the other is pure. Let his Excellency breakfast with me. We will eat the sausages; and he shall take his choice of them.”

The Chancellor, so amused by the suggestion of resolving the issue by means of sausages, called off the duel. Conflict is unavoidable, but how we chose to engage in it is entirely up to us. We must keep our wits and keep our tempers.

Ephesians 4:26

Don't sin by letting anger control you.

I love you all,
