Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But
to be angry with the right person, to the right
degree, at the right time, for the right purpose
and in the right way... that is not easy.
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you
will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
-- Chinese Proverb.
Anger, if not restrained, is frequently more
hurtful to us than the injury that provokes it.
The greatest remedy for anger is delay.
For every minute you remain angry, you give
up sixty seconds of peace of mind.
-- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal
with the intent of throwing it at someone else;
you are the one who gets burned.
