An angry man opens his mouth and shuts up his eyes.
      - Cato (Marcus Porcius Cato "The Elder") (a/k/a Cato the Censor)

Are you angry? Look at the child who has erred, he suspects no trouble, he dreams of no harm; you will borrow something of that innocence, you will feel appeased.
      - Francois August Rene de Chateaubriand, Vicomte de Chateaubriand

Anger a 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.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Anger is an affected madness, compounded of pride and folly, and an intention to do commonly more mischief than it can bring to pass; and, without doubt, of all passions which actually disturb the mind of man, it is most in our power to extinguish, at least, to suppress and correct, our anger.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

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.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

Angry and choleric men are as ungrateful and unsociable as thunder and lightning, being in themselves all storm and tempest; but quiet and easy natures are like fair weather, welcome to all.
      - Lord Clarendon, Edward Hyde

I know of no more disagreeable sensation than to be left feeling generally angry without anybody in particular to be angry at.
      - Frank Moore Colby

And to be wroth with one we love
  Doth work like madness in the brain.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Alas! they had been friends in youth;
  But whispering tongues can poison truth,
    And constancy lives in realms above;
      And life is thorny, and youth is vain;
        And to be wrothe with one we love
          Doth work like madness in the brain.
      - Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Christabel
         (pt. II)

Check and restrain anger. Never make any determination until you find it has entirely subsided.
      - Cuthbert Collingwood, 1st Baron Collingwood

Anger is practical awkwardness.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides us from ourselves, and we injure our own cause, in the opinion of the world when we too passionately and eagerly defend it.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

You may forgive, and so will I; but I will not forget, though I control my anger.
      - Charles Caleb Colton

Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turn'd,
  Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned.
      - William Congreve, The Mourning Bride
         (act III, sc. 8)

Anger is blood, poured and perplexed into froth; but malice is the wisdom of our wrath.
      - Sir William D'Avenant

Whatsoever is worthy of their love is worth their anger.
      - Sir John Denham

Beware of the fury of the patient man.
      - John Dryden

The elephant is never won by anger; nor must that man who would reclaim a lion take him by the teeth.
      - John Dryden

Beware the fury of a patient man.
      - John Dryden, Absalom and Achitophel
         (pt. I, l. 1005)

He who can suppress a moment's anger may prevent a day of sorrow.
      - Tryon Edwards

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

Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.
      - Albert Einstein

A man deep-wounded may feel too much pain
  To feel much anger.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy (bk. I)

Anger seek it prey,--
  Something to tear with sharp-edged tooth and claw,
    Like not to go off hungry, leaving Love
      To feast on milk and honeycomb at will.
      - George Eliot (pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans Cross),
        The Spanish Gypsy (bk. I)

For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson
