The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.
Eric Hoffer

Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back--in many ways it is a feast fit for a king. The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself. The skeleton at the feast is you.
Frederick Buechner

Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.
James Thurber

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Thomas a Kempis

If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
Chinese Proverb

When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.

Men in rage strike those that wish them best.

When a man is wrong and won't admit it, he always gets angry.

Never forget what a man says to you when he is angry.
Henry Beecher

Speak when you're angry, and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.
Lawrence J. Peter

The angry people are those people who are most afraid.
Dr. Robert Anthony

Every time you get angry, you poison your own system.
Alfred Montapert

Keep cool; anger is not an argument.
Daniel Webster

Two things a man should never be angry at: what he can help, and what he cannot help.
Thomas Fuller

Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Thomas a Kempis

Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way - that is not easy.
Aristotle (384-322 BC) - Greek philosopher

Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
Benjamin Franklin

He is a fool who cannot be angry; but he is a wise man who will not.

Anger is a momentary madness, so control your passion or it will control you.

Resentment, anger, frustration, worry, disappointment—negative emotional states, justified or not, take a toll on your heart, brain and body. Don't let justified emotions rob your health and well-being.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

So if we can't express it or repress it, what do we do when we feel angry? The answer is to recognize the anger, but choose to respond to the situation differently. Easier said than done, right? Can you actually imagine trying to strong-arm your anger into another, more amicable feeling? It would never work. Determination alone won't work. It takes a new intelligence to understand and manage our emotions. By getting your head and heart in coherence and allow-ing the heart's intelligence to work for you, you can have a realistic chance of transforming your anger in a healthy way.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.
Leo Buscaglia

I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.
Booker T. Washington

Character isn't inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains.
Helen Douglas

If we could read the secret history of our enemies, we should find in each man's life sorrow and suffering enough to disarm any hostility.
HW Longfellow

How much more grevious are the consequences of anger than the causes of it.
Marcus Aurelius

Beware of the fury of the patient man. John Dryden

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

Sticks and stones may break your bones when there's anger to inpart. Spiteful words can hurt your feelings but silence breaks your heart.

Anger is seldom without an argument but seldom with a good one.
Lord Halifax

Anger is as a stone cast into a wasp's nest.

Men are like steel: when they lose their temper, they lose their worth.
Chuck Norris

To rule one's anger is well; to prevent it is still better.
Tryon Edwards

Consider how much more you often suffer from your anger and grief, than from those very things for which you are angry and grieved.
Marcus Antonius

Expressing anger is a form of public littering.
Willard Gaylin

Beware the fury of a patient man. John Dryden

Great anger is more destructive than the sword.
Tamil proverb

Anger begins with folly and ends with repentance.

Anger causes us often to condemn in one what we approve in another.
Pasquier Quesnel

An angry man opens his mouth and shuts up his eyes.

Men often make up in wrath what they want in reason.
W. R. Alger

You cannot shake hands with a clenched fist.
Golda Meir

There was never an angry man that thought his anger unjust.
St. Francis De Sales

He who angers you conquers you.
Elizabeth Kenny

Those who the Gods would destroy
First they would make angry
Greek proverb

In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.
John Steinbeck Often we think we won't take needed action, whether in a confrontation or in getting something important done, without being propelled by our anger. While anger can give us a short burst of energy, until we manage the anger, we can't see what action would be best to take. The information is simply not available. The emotions have short-circuited the pathway in the brain that helps us see the most appropriate action to take.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

We all know people who say: "It's the principle of the matter" to justify sustaining toxic emotions for years. As they hold onto their anger or hurt, they bleed away their energy reserves, often ending up bitter and depressed.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

When we consciously choose a core heart feeling over a negative feeling, we effectively intercept the physiological stress response that drains and damages our systems and allow the body's natural regenerative capacities to work for us. Instead of being taxed and depleted, our mental and emotional systems are renewed. As a consequence, they are better able to ward off future "energy eaters" like stress, anxiety and anger before they take hold.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

Learning to "just say no" to emotional reactions isn't repression. Saying no means not engaging the frustration, anger, judgment, or blame. Without engagement, you won't have anything to repress.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution

When I am right, I get angry. Churchill gets angry when he is wrong. So we were often angry at each other.
Charles De Gaulle

Anger is the most impotent passion that accompanies the mind of man; it effects nothing it goes about; and hurts the man who is possessed by it more than any other against whom it is directed.

Anger makes dull men witty, but it keeps them poor.
Elizabeth 1

Let us not look back in anger or forward in fear, but around in awareness.
James Thurber

Think when you are enraged at anyone, what would probably become of your sentiments should he die during the dispute.
William Shenstone

A man makes inferiors his superiors by heat; self control is the rule.
Anger is an uncontrollable feeling that betrays what you are when you are not yourself.
Anger is that powerful internal force that blows out the light of reason.
Know this to be the enemy: it is anger, born of desire.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

To rule one's anger is well; to prevent it is still better.
Tyron Edwards

Anger is one of the sinews of the soul; he that lacks it has a maimed mind.
Thomas Fuller

The flame of anger, bright and brief, sharpens the barb of love.
Walter S. Landor

No man can think clearly when his fist are clenched.
George Jean Nathan

I was angry with my friend
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.
I was angry with my foe:
I told it not, my wrath did grow.
A Poison Tree William Blake

Physiologically, it simply doesn't matter whether your anger is justified or not. The body doesn't make moral judgements about feelings; it just responds.
