Anger: The Self-Destructive Sword. 


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.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution
Physiologically, it simply doesn’t matter whether your anger is justified or not. The body doesn’t make moral judgements about feelings; it just responds.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution
Resentment, anger, frustration, worry, disappointment—negative emotional states, justified or not, take a toll on your heart, brain and body. Don’t let justified emotions rob your health and well-being.
Doc Childre and Howard Martin, HeartMath Solution
When we consciously choose a core heart feeling over a negative feeling, we effectively intercept the physiological stress response that drains and damages our systems and allow the body’s natural regenerative capacities to work for us. Instead of being taxed and depleted, our mental and emotional systems are renewed. As a consequence, they are better able to ward off future “energy eaters” like stress, anxiety and anger before they take hold.
Leo Buscaglia
Don’t hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love.
Helen Douglas
Character isn’t inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains.
Chuck Norris
Men are like steel: when they lose their temper, they lose their worth.
Tryon Edwards
To rule one’s anger is well; to prevent it is still better.
An angry man opens his mouth and shuts up his eyes.
St. Francis De Sales
There was never an angry man that thought his anger unjust.
Chinese Proverb
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
Elizabeth Kenny
He who angers you conquers you.
Those who the Gods would destroy
First they would make angry
When a man is wrong and won’t admit it, he always gets angry.
Willard Gaylin
Expressing anger is a form of public littering.
Lawrence J. Peter
Speak when you’re angry, and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.
Tamil proverb
Great anger is more destructive than the sword.
Alfred Montapert
Every time you get angry, you poison your own system.
Thomas Haliburton
When a man is wrong and won’t admit it, he always gets angry.
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.
When angry, count ten before you speak; if very angry, a hundred.
Thomas a Kempis
Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
Aristotle (384-322 BC) – Greek philosopher
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.
Benjamin Franklin
Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A man makes inferiors his superiors by heat; self control is the rule.
Anger is an uncontrollable feeling that betrays what you are when you are not yourself.
Anger is that powerful internal force that blows out the light of reason.
Know this to be the enemy: it is anger, born of desire.
Dr. Robert Anthony
The angry people are those people who are most afraid.
Tyron Edwards
To rule one’s anger is well; to prevent it is still better.
Anger is a momentary madness, so control your passion or it will control you.
