How do I handle difficult people at work?

Romans 12:17-18

17 To no man rendering evil for evil. Providing good things, not only in the sight of God, but also in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as is in you, have peace with all men.

Proverbs 15:1-2

1 A mild answer breaketh wrath: but a harsh word stirreth up fury. 2 The tongue of the wise adorneth knowledge: but the mouth of fools bubbleth out folly.

Matthew 5:44-45

44 But I say to you, Love your enemies: do good to them that hate you: and pray for them that persecute and calumniate you: 45 That you may be the children of your Father who is in heaven, who maketh his sun to rise upon the good, and bad, and raineth upon the just and the unjust.
