Holding on to anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die – Buddha
- For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
- Anybody can become angry — that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way — that is not within everybody’s power and is not easy. – Aristotle
- Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it is stored than to anything on which it is poured. – Mark Twain
- When angry count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred. – Thomas Jefferson
- Anger is like flowing water; there’s nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human. – C. JoyBell C.
