Anger has some claim to indulgence, and railing is usually a relief to the mind.
      - Junius (pseudonym, possibly of Sir Philip Francis)

He who angers you conquers you.
      - Elizabeth Kenny

He submits himself to be seen through a microscope, who suffers himself to be caught in a fit of passion.
      - Johann Kaspar Lavater (John Caspar Lavater)

He that contemns a shrew to the degree of not descending to words with her does worse than beat her.
      - Sir Roger L'Estrange

Anger is uneasiness or discomposure of the mind upon the receipt of any injury, with a present purpose of revenge.
      - John Locke (1)

They are borne along by the violence of their rage, and think it is a waste of time to ask who are guilty.
  [Lat., Trahit ipse furoris
    Impetus, et visum est lenti quaesisse nocentum.]
      - Lucanus (Marcus Annaeus Lucan), Pharsalia
         (II, 109)

I never work better than when I am inspired by anger. When I am angry I can, write, pray, and preach well; for then my whole temperament is quickened, my understanding sharpened, and all mundane vexations and temptations depart.
      - Martin Luther

In the same degree in which a man's mind is nearer to freedom from all passion, in the same degree also is it nearer to strength.
      - Marcus Aurelius (Marcus Aurelius Antoninus)

Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
      - Henry Louis Mencken

There is no passion that so much transports men from their right judgments as anger. No one would demur upon punishing a judge with death who should condemn a criminal upon the account of his own choler; why then should fathers and pedants be any more allowed to whip and chastise children in their anger? It is then no longer correction bat revenge. Chastisement is instead of physic to children; and should we suffer a physician who should be animated against and enraged at his patient?
      - Michel Eyquem de Montaigne

No man provokes me with impunity.
  [Lat., Nemo me impune lacessit.]
      - Motto, of the Order of the Thistle

Anger assists hands however weak.
  [Lat., Quamlibet infirmas adjuvat ira manus.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Amorum
         (I, 7, 66)

Like fragile ice anger passes away in time.
  [Lat., Ut fragilis glacies interit ira mora.]
      - Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso), Ara Amatoria
         (I, 374)

Be ye angry, and sin not; therefore all anger is not sinful; I suppose because some degree of it, and upon some occasions, is inevitable. It become sinful, or contradicts, however, the rule of Scripture, when it is conceived upon slight and inadequate provocation, and when it continues long.
      - William Paley, Archdeacon of Saragossa

It is he who is in the wrong who first gets angry.
      - William Penn

An angry woman is vindictive beyond measure, and hesitates at nothing in her bitterness.
      - Jean-Antoine Petit-Senn

Temperate anger well becomes the wise.
      - Philemon

He best keeps from anger who remembers that God is always looking upon him.
      - Plato (originally Aristocles}

Anger turns the mind out of doors and bolts the entrance.
      - Plutarch

Had I a careful and pleasant companion that should show me my angry face in a glass, I should not at all take it ill; to behold man's self so unnaturally disguised and dishonored will conduce not a little to the impeachment of anger.
      - Plutarch

Lamentation is the only musician that always, like a screech-owl, alights and sits on the roof of any angry man.
      - Plutarch

When I myself had twice or thrice made a resolute resistance unto anger, the like befell me that did the Thebans; who, having once foiled the Lacedaemonians (who before that time had held themselves invincible), never after lost so much as one battle which they fought against them.
      - Plutarch

To be angry, is to revenge the fault of others upon ourselves.
      - Alexander Pope

Fear not the anger of the wise to raise;
  Those best can fear reproof who merit praise.
      - Alexander Pope, Essay on Criticism
         (l. 582)

Beware the anger of the dove.
  [Fr., Craignez la colere de la colombe.]
      - Proverb, (French)
