Top 10 Anger Quotes

Updated on February 27, 2011

How do we deal with anger? Many times when we get angry, we speak out and do unnecessary things. But most of us don't understand and see what will come after we have spoken out and acted with anger. Anger is one the most dangerous characters that can destroy both our inner and outside beings. Let us learn together as we read the followings:

“For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.”

Ralph Waldo

Anger can take away the joy and happiness that we have. If we give room for anger, there is no place for happiness.

“Speak when you are angry- and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.”

Dr. Laurence

It’s very easy to speak out when we are angry. But we need to realize that whatever we say with anger will not bring profit to us or others.

“Every time you get angry, you poison your own system.”

Afred A. Montapert

Anger is a poison that will ruin us. But many times we don’t realize the powerful effect of anger whenever we get angry. Anger can ruin our inner and outside systems.

“If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size?” Sydney J. Harris

People can know how big or small we are when they see the thing that makes us angry. When we are angry for a small reason, we are also considered small people.

“Man should forget his anger before he lies down to sleep.” Mohandas Gandhi
This thought is similar to what the Christians believe. We should let our anger remain until we sleep. As the sun sets, our anger also should go away.

When anger rises, think of the consequences.” Confucius

Many times we cannot foresee the consequences because of the power of anger within us. But this is a good reminder for us to think of the consequences when we are angry.

“When angry count to ten before you speak. If very angry, count to one hundred.” Thomas Jefferson

This is simple but effective for very short-tempered people. If we can count ten or one hundred before we speak out with anger, the damage will be lesser. If we can slow down our anger, there is a great hope for all of us.

“Never do anything when you are in a temper, for you will do everything wrong.” Baltasar Gracian
Most of the time, the thing that we do with anger doesn’t benefit us or other people. Instead, it brings shame and damage for us and community. If we control ourselves not to do things while we are angry, we will sin less.

“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.” Maya Angelou
Cancer doesn’t consume a man immediately, whereas fire burns it all clean. Fire is one of the most dangerous natural disasters. It can destroy things right away. It can turn things to ashes. Maya gives a warning to all of us not to be angry.

“Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools.” Albert Einstein

Will you believe that anger is for fools only??? This is a big reminder for us to realize that we become fools whenever we give a room for anger instead of love. We all need to learn to be wise.

      Thanks! I believe anger always leads us to misdirection and wrong deeds. Even though we know it, we are still angry with someone or at something. I hope this is a big reminder for all of us.
