Do not teach your children never to be angry; teach them how to be angry and sin not.

Lyman Abbott

Every great sin ought to rouse a great anger. Mob law is better than no law at all. A community which rises in its wrath to punish with misdirected anger a great wrong is in a healthier moral condition than a community which looks upon its perpetration with apathy and unconcern.

Lyman Abbott

There's nothing more dangerous than a resourceful idiot.

Scott Raymond Adams

As the ostrich when pursued hideth his head, but forgetteth his body; so the fears of a coward expose him to danger.

Akhnaton [Ikhnaton or Akhenaton]

Conceit spoils the finest genius. There is not much danger that real talent or goodness will be overlooked long; even if it is, the consciousness of possessing and using it well should satisfy one, and the great charm of all power is modesty.

Louisa May Alcott

It takes two flints to make a fire.

Louisa May Alcott

Men often make up in wrath what they want in reason.

Horatio Alger

We praise a man who feels angry on the right grounds and against the right persons and also in the right manner at the right moment and for the right length of time.


I know of no more disagreeable situation than to be left feeling generally angry without anybody in particular to be angry at.

Frank Moore Colby

Many people lose their tempers merely from seeing you keep yours.

Frank Moore Colby

Heav'n has no Rage like Love to Hatred turn'd, Nor Hell a Fury, like a Woman scorn'd.

William Congreve

Anger as soon as fed is dead. 'Tis starving that makes it fat.

Emily Dickinson

Beware the fury of a patient man.

John Dryden

We boil at different degrees.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

In times of great stress or adversity, it's always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.

Lee Iacocca

Speak when you are angry - and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.

Laurence J. Peter

The bare recollection of anger kindles anger.

Publilius Syrus

To observe people in conflict is a necessary part of a child's education. It helps him to understand and accept his own occasional hostilities and to realize that differing opinions need not imply an absence of love.

Milton R. Sapirstein

In the souls of the people the grapes of wrath are filling and growing heavy, growing heavy for the vintage.

John Steinbeck

When angry, count four; when very angry, swear.

Mark Twain

Usually when people are sad, they don't do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about change.

Malcolm X
