    Anger quotes by:    

Hot heads and cold hearts never solved anything.

    Author: Billy Graham

The meek are not those who are never at all angry, for such are insensible; but those who, feeling anger, control it, and are angry only when they ought to be. Meekness excludes revenge, irritability, morbid sensitiveness, but not self-defence, or a quiet and steady maintenance of right.
- Theophylact

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

    Author: Thomas a Kempis

A man that does not know how to be angry does not know how to be good. Now and then a man should be shaken to the core with indignation over things evil.

    Author: Henry Ward Beecher

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

    Author: Henry Ward Beecher

To be angry about trifles is mean and childish; to rage and be furious is brutish; and to maintain perpetual wrath is akin to the practice and temper of devils; but to prevent and suppress rising resentment is wise and glorious, is manly and divine.

    Author: Isaac Watts

When you resort to shouting in conflict, you are reacting in the flesh. You have lost control of the only person you can control: yourself.

    Author: Neil T. Anderson

Of the Seven Deadly Sins, anger is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past ... 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.

Love is the only thing in which we can retaliate with God. If God be angry with us, we must not be angry again; if He chide us, we must not chide Him again; but if God loves us, we must love Him again. There is nothing in which we can answer God again, but love. We must not give Him word for word, but we must give Him love for love.

So there is such a thing as perfect hatred, just as there is such a thing as righteous anger. But it is a hatred for God's enemies, not our own enemies. It is entirely free of all spite, rancor and vindictiveness, and is fired only by love for God's honor and glory.

If we would be angry and not sin (says one), we must be angry at nothing but sin; and we should be more jealous for the glory of God than for any interest or reputation of our own.

    Author: Matthew Henry

Anger is the fruit of rotten roots.
