“The greatest remedy for anger is delay.”
Thomas Paine

Shannon L. Alder
“Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you. However, if it taught you to hold onto grudges, seek revenge, not forgive or show compassion, to categorize people as good or bad, to distrust and be guarded with your feelings then you didn’t learn a thing. God doesn’t bring you lessons to close your heart. He brings you lessons to open it, by developing compassion, learning to listen, seeking to understand instead of speculating, practicing empathy and developing conflict resolution through communication. If he brought you perfect people, how would you ever learn to spiritually evolve?”
Shannon L. Alder

Amit Ray
“There are two types of seeds in the mind: those that create anger, fear, frustration, jealousy, hatred and those that create love, compassion, equanimity and joy. Spirituality is germination and sprouting of the second group and transforming the first group.”
Amit Ray

“Angry people want you to see how powerful they are... loving people want you to see how powerful You are.”
Chief Red Eagle

Tony Attwood
“When the anger is intense, the person with Asperger's syndrome may be in a 'blind rage' and unable to see the signals indicating that it would be appropriate to stop. Feelings of anger can also be in response in situations where we would expect other emotions. I have noted that sadness may be expressed as anger.”
Tony Attwood

Jack Weatherford
“The first key to leadership was self-control, particularly the mastery of pride, which was something more difficult, he explained, to subdue than a wild lion and anger, which was more difficult to defeat than the greatest wrestler. He warned them that "if you can't swallow your pride, you can't lead.”
Jack Weatherford, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World

Theodore Sturgeon
“Why on earth do you carry a mirror around with you?”
“It's purely a defensive device. We seldom quarrel, and this is one of the reasons. Can you imagine yourself getting all worked up and contorted and illogical and then coming face to face with yourself, looking at yourself exactly as you look to everyone else?”
Theodore Sturgeon, Venus Plus X

Stephen Richards
“Do not let your anger lead to hatred, as you will hurt yourself more than you would the other.”
Stephen Richards

it took seconds to control your anger,
only to avoid the state of eternal feud.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

Tommy Lee
“If you show up late [for anger management], you don't get credit for the class, which made that car ride even more of a test of your temper. Being late was great-you could leave if you wanted to, but that wasn't going to help you at all. I was late a few times and I always stayed, hoping to get credit for good behavior. I never did, and that made me really fucking angry. Thank God I was learning how to deal with that.”
Tommy Lee, Tommyland

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
“There is no use getting angry at something that has already happened.All you can do is your best to check it doesn't happen again.”
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

Alex Morritt
“Life is indeed colourful. We can feel in the pink one day, with our bank balances comfortably in the black, and the grass seemingly no greener on the other side of the fence. Then out of the blue, something tiresome happens that makes us see red, turn ashen white, even purple with rage. Maybe controlling our varying emotions is just 'colour management' by another name.”

“When in a negatively charged state, be careful about the decisions you make.”
Karen Salmansohn

Natalya Vorobyova
“I tend to throw tantrums a lot. Wear a helmet in my presence.”
Natalya Vorobyova

“Comfort blindfolds; difficulty brings realization.
Pain reveals; disappointments plant trigger of actions.
Fear controls; ignorance deceives.
Anger torments; silence keeps.
Misunderstanding divides; love joins.
Laughter starts; deception suspects.
Frowning cautions; sorrow remembers.
Purposefulness moves; idleness wastes.
When you live in comfort, ponder.
When you live in pain, take lessons.
When life goes up, plant your feet and appreciate the height.
When life goes down, envision the height and dare to get there with tenacity.
Life is how you take and manage things. Be a manager of things or things shall be your manager”
Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

Todd Stocker
“Controlled anger leads to positive action.”
Todd Stocker

“Anger is a boomerang.”
Karen Salmansohn, The Bounce Back Book: How to Thrive in the Face of Adversity, Setbacks, and Losses

Gemma Malley
“You mustn't let your emotions get the better of you. There is a great deal to be angry about, but anger doesn't change things.”
Gemma Malley, The Resistance

Adele von Rust McCormick
“Being nonreactive to destructive or hostile behaviour does not imply passive acceptance of it. Rather, it means we need to deal with it, take off our blinders and see the unacceptable. To redirect the destructive enery, we must dance with the shadow, not kill it. When we can achieve this stance, we learn to confront maladaptive or nonproductive behaviour matter-of-factly, without becoming embroiled in the heat of our own emotions. This nonreflexive style of being in the world is potent.”
Adele von Rust McCormick

Jenny Downham
“What happens if anger takes you over, Tessa? Who will you be then? What will be left of you?”
Jenny Downham

Anamika Mishra
“The great frothing waves broke into frothy as they slammed onto the rocks, but they kept rolling in, again and again. The sight of those persistent waves calmed him, and instead of anger, all he felt was a deep sadness.”
Anamika Mishra, VoiceMates - A Novel

Adele von Rust McCormick
“Horses have taught us about the transfiguring effect of reducing anger. We have repeatedly observed that they rarely show offense at a handler who reprimands them legitimately for something they have done wrong, if the handler is devoid of rage or vengeance. Howeve, if reprimanded in a fury, horses will counterattack because they feel challenged. Many power struggles can be avoided by learning not to meet anger with anger. This is an invaluable lesson in life. Developing patience and being unemotional is the key.”
Adele von Rust McCormick

Mary Crocker Cook
“The ManAlive program teaches how the “angry man” is more often a response to experiencing a threat to their “image,” which triggers a fight or flight response. When the sympathetic nervous system gets triggered – breathing is more rapid, heart rate increases, blood pressure goes up – men call this stimulated response “anger.” In fact, anger is more often a response to injustice. What these men are experiencing is not anger but an arousal state. This is key information for men to have because, as they learn to interrupt this hyperarousal, they have more oppor-tunity to connect with what they may actually be feeling.”
Mary Crocker Cook, Codependency & Men
