Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy.
Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured.
Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
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.
Anger is a killing thing: it kills the man who angers, for each rage leaves him less than he had been before – it takes something from him.
