A Quote by David Oman McKay on anger, suffering, temper, and wonder

A man in such a mental state that the anger itself does him more harm than the condition which aroused his anger . . . suffers more from the vexation than he does from the acts that aroused that vexation. I wonder how long it will take us to realize that in matters of temper nothing can bring us damage but ourselves.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on animals, control, life, passion, religion, and temper

A man who cannot control his temper is not very likely to control his passion, and no matter what his pretensions in religion, he moves in daily life very close to the animal plane.
