A Quote by Isaac Watts on anger, devil, divinity, practice, resentment, and temper

To be angry about trifles is mean and childish; to rage and be furious is brutish; and to maintain perpetual wrath is akin to the practice and temper of devils; but to prevent and suppress rising resentment is wise and glorious, is manly and divine.

A Quote by I Corinthians 13:4-8 on anger, boasts, envy, evil, failure, hope, kindness, love, patience, rudeness, and truth

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.

A Quote by Henry Ward Beecher on anger, injustice, and time

If a man meets with injustice, it is not required that he shall not be roused to meet it; but if he is angry after he has had time to think upon it, that is sinful. The flame is not wring, but the coals are.

A Quote by Helen Douglas on action, anger, character, fear, mind, possessions, and thought

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.

A Quote by Harriet Beecher Stowe on anger, peace, rudeness, and stillness

When winds are raging o'er the upper ocean And billows wild contend with angry roar, 'T is said, far down beneath the wild commotion That peaceful stillness reigneth evermore. Far, far beneath, the noise of tempests dieth And silver waves chime ever peacefully, And no rude storm, how fierce soe'er it flyeth Disturbs the Sabbath of that deeper sea.

Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811 - 1896)

Answer them [critics] with silence and indifference. It works better, I assure you, than anger and argument. . . .
