Anger Quotes

Do not feel ashamed to forgive and forget. Do not hurry over punishments and do not be pleased and do not be proud of your power to punish. Do not get angry and lose your temper quickly over the mistakes and failures of those over whom you rule. On the contrary, be patient and sympathetic with them. Anger and desire of vengeance are not going to be of much help to you in your administration. Never say to yourself, "I am their Lord, their ruler and all in all over them and that I must be obeyed submissively and humbly" because such a thought will unbalance your mind, will make you vain and arrogant, will weaken your faith in religion and will make you seek support of any power other than that of Allah . If you ever feel any pride or vanity on account of your sway and rule over your subjects then think of the supreme sway and rule of the Lord over the Universe, the extent of His creations, the supremacy of His Might and Glory, His Power to do things which you cannot even dream of doing and His control over you which is more dominating than that which you can ever achieve over anything around you. Such thoughts will cure your mental weakness, will keep you away from vanity and rebellion (against Allah), will reduce your arrogance and haughtiness and will take you back to the sanity which you had foolishly deserted... Try carefully to realize that a ruler can create goodwill in the minds of his subjects and can make them faithful and sincere to him only when he is kind and considerate to them, when he reduces their troubles, when he does not oppress them and when he never asks for things which are beyond their power. These are the principles which you should keep in mind and act upon.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

Bible

The flame of anger, bright and brief, sharpens the barb of love.

Walter S. Landor

A fit of anger is as fatal to dignity as a dose of arsenic is to life.

Josiah Gilbert Holland

Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

Steven Wright

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

Stephen R Covey

Be too big for worry and too noble for anger

Christian D

Sweetpea Tyler

Marcus T.

Revenge commonly hurts both the offerer and sufferer; as we see in a foolish bee, which in her anger invenometh the flesh and loseth her sting, and so lives a drone ever after.

Joseph Hall

As a culture I see us as presently deprived of subtleties. The music is loud, the anger is elevated, sex seems lacking in sweetness and privacy.

Shelley Berman

Impatience turns an ague into a fever, a fever to the plague, fear into despair, anger into rage, loss into madness, and sorrow to amazement.

Dalai Lama

A woman can hide her love for 40 years, but her disgust and anger not for one day

Arab Proverb

Anger is what makes a clear mind seem clouded.

Kazi Shams

Anger itself does more harm than the condition which aroused anger.

David Oman McKay

Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding.

Mahatma Gandhi

Anger ventilated often hurries towards forgiveness; anger concealed often hardens into revenge.

Sir Henry Bulwer

Anger wishes that all mankind had only one neck; love, that it had only one heart; grief, two tear-glands; and pride, two bent knees.

Jean Paul Richter

The intoxication of anger, like that of the grape, shows us to others, but hides us from ourselves.
