Anger quotes by Madeline Miller
#1. The anger stood out plain and clean on his face. There was a sort of innocence to him, I thought. I do not mean this as the poets mean it: a virtue to be broken by the story's end, or else upheld at greatest cost. Nor do I mean that he was foolish or guileless. I mean that he was made only of himself, without the dregs that clog the rest of us. He thought and felt and acted, and all these things made a straight line. No wonder his father had been so baffled by him. He would have been always looking for the hidden meaning, the knife in the dark. But Telemachus carried his blade in the open. #Quote by Madeline Miller
Anger quotes by Gayle Friesen
#2. There's no point in getting angry. Anger makes you ask questiona. Anger sets up expectations and demands to know the truth. #Quote by Gayle Friesen
Anger quotes by Melanie Joy
#3. Becoming aware of the intense suffering of billions of animals, and of our own participation in that suffering, can bring up painful emotions: sorrow and grief for the animals; anger at the injustice and deception of the system; despair at the enormity of the problem; fear that trusted authorities and institutions are, in fact, untrustworthy; and guilt for having contributed to the problem. Bearing witness means choosing to suffer. Indeed, empathy is literally 'feeling with.' Choosing to suffer is particularly difficult in a culture that is addicted to comfort
a culture that teaches that pain should be avoided whenever possible and that ignorance is bliss. We can reduce our resistance to witnessing by valuing authenticity over personal pleasure, and integration over ignorance. #Quote by Melanie Joy
Anger quotes by Krisi Keley
#4. How many of us are there?" he demanded in a less than amused tone.
"Legions, surely, don't you think it must be so?"
"How can you joke about even this?" he asked, anger evident in his voice. A rarity that he expressed it, or any other emotion, for that matter. Of course, that didn't mean the emotions weren't there, and I'd experienced every one he'd refused to show.
"Don't knock what you haven't tried, Michel. Trust me when I say my regular routine of self-amusement is a much better prophylactic against insanity than your grueling regimen of nightly self-flogging. #Quote by Krisi Keley
Anger quotes by Harvey Milk
#5. I cannot prevent anyone from getting angry, or mad, or frustrated. I can only hope that they'll turn that anger and frustration and madness into something positive, so that two, three, four, five hundred will step forward, so the gay doctors will come out, the gay lawyers, the gay judges, gay bankers, gay architects I hope that every professional gay will say 'enough', come forward and tell everybody, wear a sign, let the world know. Maybe that will help. #Quote by Harvey Milk
Anger quotes by Gemma Files
#6. Morrow's rush of disgust, temporary as it might prove, had nothing to do with the truths-turned-insults flung out. No. What riled Morrow ran far deeper - was the sheer perversity of Chess's own nature, that unbreakable wilfulness he'd always revered in himself, as sign and source of his own freedom. His stark refusal ever to be bound, to obey aught but his own whim and want.

Because while he could walk free and hold a gun Chess Pargeter answered to no man - no man, no law, no damn body, motherfucker. No ideal, no cause, no force but sheer chaos, bound and determined to move unimpeded and burn for the sake of burning. To never submit himself to ghost or hex or priest or even God, 'less he damn well wanted to.

No man except Ash Rook, that was - for a time. And after this last betrayal, from now on... not even him.

'Course not, Morrow's anger spoke back, unimpressed by Chess's well-tuned inner litany. That's 'cause you're nothing but a brat who never grew up - a skillet-hopping little hot-pants who knows everything 'bout killing and nothing at all 'bout living. Who spits on friendship, duty and honour not 'cause he's above them, so much as 'cause he don't know what they even mean - same way you don't really grasp how anything's real, 'cept if you want it, or it hurts you. And that's why you ended up givin' everything you had to a man who skinned you alive, then left you stranded down in Hell - 'cause he was what you wanted, and Christ forbid Ches #Quote by Gemma Files
Anger quotes by Pat McBride
#7. When we are angry, we will use a lie as fast as a truth if we can hurt with it. Anger feels strong but it is actually a disguised weakness. To someone with their eyes closed, all the pictures that you show them will seem the same. It is better to whisper words of love instead of trying to find a better picture. The end of a relationship is not a failure any more than the end of a book is a failure. #Quote by Pat McBride
Anger quotes by Third Eye Blind
#8. Well don't you know the sound of anger brings a dark result.
And every insult is like a lightning bolt. #Quote by Third Eye Blind
Anger quotes by Tami Egonu
#9. You can vent your anger and think that others are to blame when in truth the anger you carry belongs to you.
Learn to accept responsibility for every action.
Learn to let go of preconception.
Learn to let go of what you have learnt in your life.
Travel lightly and you will find the journey has far more enlightenment than you could ever have imagined. #Quote by Tami Egonu
Anger quotes by Sallie Tisdale
#10. The anger and shame of these women I hold in one hand, and the basin in the other. The distance between the two, the length I pace and try to measure, is the size of an abortion. #Quote by Sallie Tisdale
Anger quotes by Augustine Birrell
#11. Few men can afford to be angry. #Quote by Augustine Birrell
Anger quotes by Najwa Zebian
#12. Take responsibility.
Just as you can't deny that you can feel love and hate, happiness and sadness, anger and ease of mind, or tiredness and relaxation, you can't deny that you have a fate that, sometimes, you can't control. That doesn't mean that it takes control over you. You can't deny that you have words that need to be spoken. You can't deny that you have a choice. You can't deny the ability that you can say no. You can't deny the ability that you have the freedom to make a decision and defend it. You can't deny injustice when you see it, unfairness when you feel it, oppression when you witness it. Stop blaming the world around you for wronging you. Take responsibility for the nos you could have said but chose not to, the words you could have said but didn't, instead wrapping your mouth with your own hands and remaining silent against what needed to be addressed. Take responsibility for the choices you could have made but restrained yourself from making. #Quote by Najwa Zebian
Anger quotes by Victoria Williams
#13. I don't think there's any pop music directed at the peculiar class of anger that I know women of my age feel. #Quote by Victoria Williams
Anger quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#14. His nostrils flared at that as he sat up. "What has possessed you?"
"Anger," she growled out. "Great doses of anger, my lord. And all of it is for you."
-Christian, Adara #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Anger quotes by John C. Broger
#15. Anger and bitterness are two noticeable signs of being focused on self and not trusting God's sovereignty in your life. When you believe that God causes all things to work together for good to those who belong to Him and love Him, you can respond to trials with joy instead of anger or bitterness. #Quote by John C. Broger
Anger quotes by Miguel Syjuco
#16. Angry men have little to live for when their rage becomes ineffective. #Quote by Miguel Syjuco
Anger quotes by Francesca Marciano
#17. Maybe that's what happens with age, I thought. All your life you force yourself to forget people who have hurt you, but as you get older and weaker their memory surfaces again, like a bubble in the water. You have to surrender, because you feel to tired to fight it and push it down again. And maybe, unexpectedly, you find out that instead, of revamping your anger, those memories produce an unexpected sweetness. #Quote by Francesca Marciano
Anger quotes by Orhan Pamuk
#18. Istanbul is certainly in the process of transforming itself into an attractive cultural, tourist and financial center. But there are also millions of sad stories in this giant sea of immigration, poverty, misery and contradictions. So much anger, frustration and fury. #Quote by Orhan Pamuk
Anger quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#19. When we have insight into our inner world and what brings us happiness, then wordlessly, intuitively, we understand others. As though there were no longer a barrier defining the boundaries of our caring, we can feel close to others' experience of life. We see that when we are angry, there is an element of pain in the anger that is not different from the pain that others feel when they are angry. When we feel love, there is a distinct and special joy in that feeling. We come to know that this is the nature of love itself, and that other beings filled with love experience this same joy. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Anger quotes by Earl Nightingale
#20. How are you coming with your home library? Do you need some good ammunition on why it's so important to read? The last time I checked the statistics...I think they indicated that only four percent of the adults in this country have bought a book within the past year. That's dangerous. It's extremely important that we keep ourselves in the top five or six percent.
In one of the Monthly Letters from the Royal Bank of Canada it was pointed out that reading good books is not something to be indulged in as a luxury. It is a necessity for anyone who intends to give his life and work a touch of quality. The most real wealth is not what we put into our piggy banks but what we develop in our heads. Books instruct us without anger, threats and harsh discipline. They do not sneer at our ignorance or grumble at our mistakes. They ask only that we spend some time in the company of greatness so that we may absorb some of its attributes.

You do not read a book for the book's sake, but for your own.

You may read because in your high-pressure life, studded with problems and emergencies, you need periods of relief and yet recognize that peace of mind does not mean numbness of mind.

You may read because you never had an opportunity to go to college, and books give you a chance to get something you missed. You may read because your job is routine, and books give you a feeling of depth in life.

You may read because you did go to college.

#Quote by Earl Nightingale
Anger quotes by Dalai Lama
#21. Anger, jealousy, impatience, and hatred are the real troublemakers, with them problems cannot be solved. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Anger quotes by Aleksandr Voinov
#22. And so he sat, waited in the silent night, occasionally checkin his watch to stay awake, and letting his mind wanter once more. Across the decades, across the countries and across the wars. His family, his friends, the sex he'd shared and the love he'd known. Lust and laughter, anger and jealousy, and a thousand other things, and he smiled in the end. If they got him this time, at least he had lived and he regretted nothing. (Dan) #Quote by Aleksandr Voinov
Anger quotes by Rachel Reiland
#23. The thing I knew I needed to let go of most was anger. I would have to take on faith that something else would come in its place. #Quote by Rachel Reiland
Anger quotes by Cynthia Hand
#24. Clara: "I won't hurt you." Be not afraid.
His eyes flashed with anger like i've come right out and called him chicken. #Quote by Cynthia Hand
Anger quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg
#25. The cause of anger lies in our thinking - in thoughts of blame and judgment. #Quote by Marshall B. Rosenberg
Anger quotes by Alexandra Potter
#26. Missing someone has to be one of the worst human emotions. All the other feelings like anger and fear and horror get some much more airplay, as if their intensity gives them more value, but whereas those emotions come in violent bursts and are gone again, the gnawing ache of loss has to be simply endured. It's like background noise, it's always there, it never goes away. You just have to try to block it out, distract yourself, hope that tomorrow the hole they left behind has grown a little smaller. #Quote by Alexandra Potter
Anger quotes by Martin Luther
#27. When I am angry I can pray well and preach well. #Quote by Martin Luther
Anger quotes by The Prophet Of Life
#28. As Oofa got closer he began to have second thoughts. He knew that the government would condemn his actions. He knew they might take their anger out on his family, He knew that his death would be a tragedy. He realized that he didn't want to die. From The Commitment in the Kindle book 9: 9 Stories of Fiction by The Prophet of life #Quote by The Prophet Of Life
Anger quotes by Muhammad
#29. The strong is not the one who is physically powerful, but indeed, the one who controls himself when angry. #Quote by Muhammad
Anger quotes by Kylie Scott
#30. The anger or tension or whatever it was disappeared from his face and he gave me a thoughtful look. He didn't smile. Didn't even come close to it. But for just a moment, I wondered what it would take to make him. Curiosity was a killer. #Quote by Kylie Scott
Anger quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#31. Despite her near delirium, she noticed Jared's eyes flicking constantly to the rearview mirror, disappointment and anger warring in his expression. She sometimes thought that he shed a large part of his innocence that night, a child confronting his parent's awful shortcomings. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Anger quotes by Gautama Buddha
#32. Beware of the anger of the mouth. Master your words. Let them serve truth. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Anger quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#33. Hatred does not help us alleviate our pain even in the slightest. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Anger quotes by Rachel Ward
#34. Life's not that simple. Not so easy to move on when the anger you've got is what keeps you going. #Quote by Rachel Ward
Anger quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#35. Secondly," he went on, "a Chief Magistrate is about as far beneath a marquess's daughter as a tree is beneath the moon."
A mutinous look crossed his aunt's face. "Sir Richard started out as a saddler's apprentice. He got himself a knighthood partly because he married a wife with good connections."
"A wealthy baker's daughter. That's a far cry from a lady of rank."
"That doesn't mean it can't happen. You're a fine man, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. You're young and strong, with a good education and gentlemanly manners-better manners than Sir Richard, anyway. And now that you own this house-"
"She lives in a mansion!" Snatching his arm free, he rose. "Do you really think she'd be happy here in Cheapside, with the butchers and merchants and tradesmen?"
Her aunt looked wounded. "I thought you liked this neighborhood."
Damn. "I do, but..." There was nothing for it but to tell her the truth. "She can't stand me, all right? I'd be the last person on earth she'd want to marry." Snatching up the report, he headed for the door. "I have to go."
"Jackson?"
"What?" he barked.
"If that's true, she's a fool."
Lady Celia was no fool. She simply knew better than to take up with a man who didn't know the identity of his own father. He managed a curt nod. "I'll see you tonight, Aunt."
As he left the house, an age-old anger weighed him down. He wouldn't hurt Aunt Ada for the world, but she didn't understand. Ever since he'd started #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Anger quotes by Clifford Bax
#36. No one becomes forty without incredulity and a sense of outrage. #Quote by Clifford Bax
Anger quotes by Gabrielle Reece
#37. Once I got past my anger toward my mother, I began to excel in volleyball and modeling. #Quote by Gabrielle Reece
Anger quotes by Christopher Rice
#38. Anger can give you a false sense of direction when sadness makes you feel lost. #Quote by Christopher Rice
Anger quotes by Matthew Dicks
#39. What if Max is hurt somewhere?" Max's dad asked, and there was anger in his voice, but it was the kind of anger that someone has when they are afraid. It sounded more nervous and rushed. It was like fear dressed up in a loud voice and red cheeks. #Quote by Matthew Dicks
Anger quotes by Tahir Shah
#40. In the world of the Machiguenga, sadness could be equated with anger, and anger was a perilous emotion, by which a foreigner could lose his life. #Quote by Tahir Shah
Anger quotes by Majjhimanikaya
#41. You tell me to stand still, but I am not walking," he shouted, "whereas you who are walking say you are still. How is it that you are standing still but I am not?"
The Buddha turned round. "My legs move but my mind is still," he said. "Your legs are still but your mind moves all the time in a fire of anger, hatred, and feverish desire. Therefore, I am still but you are not. #Quote by Majjhimanikaya
Anger quotes by Dolly Parton
#42. Understanding isn't learned from punishment and anger. An iron has no gentle touch, and love ain't learned from hate. #Quote by Dolly Parton
Anger quotes by George William Curtis
#43. Anger is an expensive luxury in which only men of certain income can indulge. #Quote by George William Curtis
Anger quotes by Suzette Boon
#44. You as a whole person are thus unable to reconcile conflicts about anger and learn to tolerate and express anger in healthy ways. Inner turmoil and dissociation are maintained. #Quote by Suzette Boon
Anger quotes by Frank Herbert
#45. I began with love and prayer," Moneo said. "I changed to anger and rebellion. I was transformed into what you see before you. I recognize my duty and I do it. #Quote by Frank Herbert
Anger quotes by Ta-Nehisi Coates
#46. I should not mistake her calm probing for the absence of anger. #Quote by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Anger quotes by Justine Larbalestier
#47. We are all made of broken glass. The school grinds along on grief and anger. #Quote by Justine Larbalestier
Anger quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#48. It is usually the imagination that is wounded first, rather than the heart; it being much more sensitive. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Anger quotes by Avina Celeste
#49. Reduce the clutter in your life. Get rid of the things that no longer serve you: past regrets, leftover anger, old plans. Clutter doesn't just occupy the house in which you live, it occupies your mind. Learn to maintain your mind. Learn to do a daily clean up. Get rid of those unwanted thoughts. #Quote by Avina Celeste
Anger quotes by Scott Spencer
#50. Love gives us a heightened consciousness through which to apprehend the world, but anger gives us a precise, detached perception of its own. #Quote by Scott Spencer
Anger quotes by Carrie Jones
#51. I hang up. Actually, I smash the phone down because I take my anger out on inanimate objects. Which is better than taking it out on people, right? #Quote by Carrie Jones
Anger quotes by Mary C. Lamia
#52. Volatile expressions of anger and hostility combined with a tendency to blame others often result from feeling shame ... If you are shame-prone, any accusation directed at you, regardless of how mildly it may be delivered, has the potential to make you feel that you have failed or that you are inadequate. Rather than simply admit wrongdoing, you get angry and accusatory in order to hold yourself blameless. Using anger or hostility for self-protection hides your vulnerability and needs. Unfortunately, since most people are repelled by an angry response, this method may be effective.
Your anger may drive away the very people who should know your real feelings, and it may deprive you of the opportunity to allow others to be aware of your needs. Behaving in an offensive or frightening way toward others can cause them to retreat out of fear. But, actually, the fear is your own, which you have turned against someone else in the form of anger. #Quote by Mary C. Lamia
Anger quotes by Italo Calvino
#53. And in this self-expression I put all the thoughts I had about her, I released the anger she made me feel, my amorous way of thinking about her, my determination to exist for her, the desire for me to be me, and for her to be her, and the love for myself that I put in my love for her
all the things that could be said only in that conch shell wound into a spiral. #Quote by Italo Calvino
Anger quotes by Jon Stewart
#54. Fox opposes a Syria peace plan because its modus operandi is to foment dissent in the form of a relentless and irrational contrarianism to Barack Obama and all things Democratic, to advance its ultimate objective of creating a deliberately misinformed body politic whose fear, anger, mistrust, and discontent is the manna upon which it sustains its parasitic succubus-like existence. #Quote by Jon Stewart
Anger quotes by Osho
#55. The truly religious person controls nothing, represses nothing. If you are a truly religious person you try to understand, not to control. You become more meditative, you watch your anger, your sex, your greed, your jealousy, your possessiveness. You watch all these poisonous things that surround you, simply watch, try to understand what anger is, and in that very understanding you transcend. You become a witness, and in that witnessing the anger melts as if the sun has risen and the snow has started melting. Understanding #Quote by Osho
Anger quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#56. That's exactly what I'm talking about. That's the evil that's seducing you. The malevolent power that is crawling through your blood tempting you onto a treacherous path that will cost you everything you love and hold dear. You have to let that anger go before it's too late. Vengeance always turns inward and it will consume you until nothing's left but an empty hole that nothing can fill. (Ambrose) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Anger quotes by Taya Kyle
#57. What was remarkable to me in retrospect was the kids' attitude toward God.
As far as I could tell from their prayers, they weren't angry with Him that their father died. Instead, they told God they were thankful that He had given them Chris to be their father.
They said it without crying, without anger, and without prompting.
The faith of innocents is truly a blessed faith. #Quote by Taya Kyle
Anger quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo
#58. Hatred destroys you before it destroys the ones you hate. #Quote by Matshona Dhliwayo
Anger quotes by Gary Ponzo
#59. What happened to the perp?" "Perp?" "The piece of crap who tried to kill my wife. Where is he now?" There was a pause, then, "Well, uh, you see, the guy - he's in the parking lot right now." "What's he doing there? Is he being arrested?" "Actually, he's resting. As a matter of fact, he's going to be resting for a really long time." Nick understood the term. "Tommy, by any chance did he stumble upon an open window? #Quote by Gary Ponzo
Anger quotes by John Grisham
#60. With murder, the victim is gone, and not forced to deal with what happened to her. The family must deal with it, but not the victim. But rape is much worse. The victim has a lifetime of coping, trying to understand, of asking questions, and the worst part, of knowing the rapist is still alive and may someday escape or be released. Every hour of every day, the victim thinks of the rape and asks herself a thousand questions. She relives it, step by step, minute by minute, and it hurts just as bad.
Perhaps the most horrible crime of all is the violent rape of a child. A woman who is raped has a pretty good idea why it happened. Some animal was filled with hatred, anger and violence. But a child? A ten-year-old child? Suppose you're a parent. Imagine yourself trying to explain to your child why she was raped. Imagine yourself trying to explain why she cannot bear children. #Quote by John Grisham
Anger quotes by Dennis Prager
#61. Chechnya is a pressure cooker of Islamist anger #Quote by Dennis Prager
Anger quotes by David Clement-Davies
#62. On his brow a leaf of oaken, Cangeling child shall be his fate. Understanding words strange spoken, Chased by anger, fear, and hate. #Quote by David Clement-Davies
Anger quotes by Hannah More
#63. Anger is the common refuge of insignificance. People who feel their character to be slight, hope to give it weight by inflation: but the blown bladder at its fullest distention is still empty. #Quote by Hannah More
Anger quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#64. A little too much anger, too often or at the wrong time, can destroy more than you would ever imagine. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson
Anger quotes by Knisztina
#65. I am human and don'y need a pretty face to prove it...robots don't carry emotions. #Quote by Knisztina
Anger quotes by Vincent Van Gogh
#66. It is only right and proper to be moved by the Bible, but present-day reality has so strong a hold over us that even when we try to imagine the past the minor events in our lives immediately wrench us out of our musings, and our own adventures throw us back irrevocably upon our personal feelings - joy, boredom, suffering, anger, or a smile. #Quote by Vincent Van Gogh
Anger quotes by Frederic Gros
#67. Anger is needed to leave, to walk. That doesn't come from outside. In the hollow of the belly the pain of being here, the impossibility of remaining where you are, of being buried alive, of simply staying. #Quote by Frederic Gros
Anger quotes by Katie Klein
#68. No. I mean, med school is THE greatest challenge, right? I want to see if I can make it."
"This isn't about a challenge.=," he says, a flash of anger in this eyes." "This is about finding what you love to do: doing something that makes you happy. #Quote by Katie Klein
Anger quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero
#69. In anger nothing right nor judicious can be done. #Quote by Marcus Tullius Cicero
Anger quotes by Gary Chapman
#70. A soft answer turns away anger. #Quote by Gary Chapman
Anger quotes by Nikolas Schreck
#71. Satanism represents opposition to hypocrisy, every human being feels rage, every human being feels anger, and we feel it is natural to express that anger in a healthy way. #Quote by Nikolas Schreck
Anger quotes by Claire Legrand
#72. His eyes shone with an anguish Clara understood well. Loss, horrible loss. Pain and anger, and the world being pulled out from beneath one's feet. #Quote by Claire Legrand
Anger quotes by K.S. Villoso
#73. I was a different man, then…one full of anger and regrets. Now, only the regrets remain. #Quote by K.S. Villoso
Anger quotes by Harvey Pekar
#74. I'm as big as snob as they come, but money is a terrible barometer of a person's worth. The standard I used is what a person is choosing to do with his life. So for me a struggling musician (someone dedicated to their craft, not some slacker) is much better than some lame investment banker. And the fact that she lied seemed like she was ashamed. She dismissed my anger as if I were overreacting. #Quote by Harvey Pekar
Anger quotes by Christine A. Courtois
#75. ... every therapist must develop enough personal maturity, clinical wisdom, and capacity for good judgment to effectively and safely conduct psychotherapy, an imperative that is especially important in the treatment of this population. The emotion dysregulation and insecure and disorganized attachment of complex trauma clients elicit strong emotional reactions from others, even those in their support network, including therapists. Reactions can range from sympathy, sorrow, fear, and guilt to frustration, impatience, anger/rage, hostility, and disgust or contempt. #Quote by Christine A. Courtois
Anger quotes by Doris Lessing
#76. She was thinking - for, since she had been formed by literature, she could think in no other way - that all this had been described in Dickens, Tolstoy, Hugo, Dostoevsky, and a dozen others. All that noble and terrific indignation had done nothing, achieved nothing, the shout of anger from the nineteenth century might as well have been silent - for here came the file of prisoners, handcuffed two by two, and on their faces was that same immemorial look of patient, sardonic understanding. #Quote by Doris Lessing
Anger quotes by John Adams
#77. The law no passion can disturb. 'Tis void of desire and fear, lust and anger. 'Tis mens sine affectu, written reason, retaining some measure of the divine perfection. It does not enjoin that which pleases a weak, frail man, but, without any regard to persons, commands that which is good and punishes evil in all, whether rich or poor, high or low. #Quote by John Adams
Anger quotes by Geraldine Brooks
#78. I reached for her, pushing back the fall of hair-it was heavy and thick and smooth to the touch-and tilted her chin so that the moonlight shone on her wet face.
We married each other that night, there on a bed of fallen pine needles-even today, the scent of pitch-pine stirs me-with Henry's distant flute for a wedding march and the arching white birch boughs for our basilica. At first, she quivered like an aspen, and I was ashamed at my lack of continence, yet I could not let go of her. I felt like Peleus on the beach, clinging to Thetis, only to find that, suddenly, it was she who held me; that same furnace in her nature that had flared up in anger blazed again, in passion. #Quote by Geraldine Brooks
Anger quotes by Cecilia London
#79. Your heart belongs to someone else and it always will. I knew it the instant we got here. Do whatever you have to do to make peace with everything that has happened, but don't sacrifice your happiness for it. You deserve to be happy, whether you believe it or not. Let go of your anger. It doesn't define who you are and it shouldn't dictate your life. Forgive him. Gabe #Quote by Cecilia London
Anger quotes by Alexander McCall Smith
#80. Anger, Obed Ramotswe had explained to her once, is no more than a salt that we rub into our wounds. #Quote by Alexander McCall Smith
Anger quotes by Aspen Matis
#81. Vividly seeing that love had always been my mother's guide, I could finally release my anger - let go of it there in the woods - and move past it. #Quote by Aspen Matis
Anger quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh
#82. Anger is rooted in our lack of understanding of ourselves and of the causes, deep-seated as well as immediate, that brought about this unpleasant state of affairs. Anger is also rooted in desire, pride, agitation, and suspicion. The primary roots of our anger are in ourselves. Our environment and other people are only secondary. #Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh
Anger quotes by Scilla Elworthy
#83. Anger is like gasoline. If you spray it around and somebody lights a match, you've got an inferno. [But] if we can put our anger inside an engine, it can drive us forward. #Quote by Scilla Elworthy
Anger quotes by Albert Einstein
#84. Anger dwells only in the bosom of fools. #Quote by Albert Einstein
Anger quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#85. Primal anger sharpened in his gut, brimming with a territorial, possessive need. Not a need for her, but a need to portect
a male's duty and honor. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Anger quotes by Kurt Fuller
#86. I also remember that Snoop Dogg visited the set in New York, with a joint in his mouth that looked like a cigar. There's your anger management. I thought, "Isn't he going to get arrested?" It was like he lived on another planet. God bless him, he was very nice. Who wouldn't be nice when you're that stoned? #Quote by Kurt Fuller
Anger quotes by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
#87. And if I wasn't able to bar anger, or her insidious cousin, irritation, From my heart, at least some of the time I bit back the sharp comments that I had prided myself on dispensing so freely all these years. #Quote by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
Anger quotes by Robert Motherwell
#88. Abstract expressionism was the first American art that was filled with anger as well as beauty. #Quote by Robert Motherwell
Anger quotes by Priscilla Shirer
#89. If I were your enemy, I'd use every opportunity to bring old wounds to mind, as well as the people, events, and circumstances that caused them. I'd try to ensure that your heart was hardened with anger and bitterness. Shackled through unforgiveness. #Quote by Priscilla Shirer
Anger quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#90. Mother said, haven't you seen older boys of your age, that you should take your rotten hands and play with my son's penis?
I held my mouth, and i really stiffled a giggle. Now i understood the bloody vexation and the reckless act performed by our housegirl.
She was fondling my infant part, and i knew she was horny and lost in the act. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Anger quotes by Kinley MacGregor
#91. Henry's face went red in anger as he blustered at her audacity. It wasn't often anyone got the better of him, and Sin knew no woman had ever flummoxed him before. Not even Eleanor.
"You are willing to declare war for him ?" Henry asked indignantly.
She didn't hesitate with her response. "I am. Are you?"
Sin closed his eyes as he heard the most precious words of his life. She who believed in nothing but peace was willing to fight for him. He could die happily knowing that.
Still, he couldn't let her do this. Henry would not rest until he buried her and her clan. A king's reputation was all he had, and if Henry lost face ...
"Callie," Sin said, waiting until her gaze met his. "Thank you, but you can't do this. You can't start a war over me. I'm not worth the cost."
"You are worth everything to me. #Quote by Kinley MacGregor
Anger quotes by Arthur Schopenhauer
#92. Hatred is an affair of the heart; contempt that of the head. #Quote by Arthur Schopenhauer
Anger quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#93. Anger is never without a Reason, but seldom with a good One. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Anger quotes by Seth King
#94. Life is brief but love is long. Somewhere between anger and love is an ocean of eternal tranquility. It is there that I will see you again. #Quote by Seth King
Anger quotes by Stephen King
#95. And what do you do when you can't use anger to fall back on? You admit the truth. #Quote by Stephen King
Anger quotes by Martin Sheen
#96. We wind up in cells of our own making when we're not generous, loving, compassionate, and forgiving. Without love we build dungeons in our hearts and fill them with our perceived enemies. We believe they deserve to be there for the harm they've caused us. But by imprisoning them we're destroying our own spirits. When our dungeons are overflowing with these prisoners we refuse to set free, we become slaves to our self-righteousness, our anger, resentments, and self-loathing, which we let multiply until we wind up imprisoned on our own death row. #Quote by Martin Sheen
Anger quotes by Trent Reedy
#97. Stop arguing with people. Let go of your anger. It doesn't matter who wins arguments, who was right or wrong. Nobody really wins, especially in stupid political disputes. Arguing and anger are just another kind of war, and trust me, war is terrible."
"So your mission... is to forgive someone." p.236 #Quote by Trent Reedy
Anger quotes by Stephen King
#98. That slit was the object of every man's lust - the heterosexual ones, at least - but it was frequently an object of their inexplicable scorn, distrust, and hate. You didn't hear that dark anger in all their jokes, but it was present in enough of them, and in some it was right out front, raw as a sore: What's a woman? A life-support system for a cunt . #Quote by Stephen King
Anger quotes by C.D. Reiss
#99. Hurt it. I wanted to hurt it so my anger had a place to go. If I didn't eat her alive, I was going to digest myself in my own acid. #Quote by C.D. Reiss
Anger quotes by Rebecca Manley Pippert
#100. We tend to be taken aback by the thought that God could be angry. how can a deity who is perfect and loving ever be angry? ... We take pride in our tolerance of the excesses of others. So what is God's problem? ... But love detests what destroys the beloved. Real love stands against the deception, the lie, the sin that destroys. Nearly a century ago the theologian E.H. Glifford wrote: 'Human love here offers a true analogy: the more a father loves his son, the more he hates in him the drunkard, the liar, the traitor.' ... Anger isn't the opposite of love. Hate is, and the final form of hate is indifference ... How can a good God forgive bad people without compromising himself? Does he just play fast and loose with the facts? 'Oh, never mind ... boys will be boys'. Try telling that to a survivor of the Cambodian 'killing fields' or to someone who lost an entire family in the Holocaust. No. To be truly good one has to be outraged by evil and implacably hostile to injustice. #Quote by Rebecca Manley Pippert
Anger quotes by Gary Barlow
#101. Did he annoy me? Yes, he was like a wasp at a picnic. #Quote by Gary Barlow
Anger quotes by Gary Rohrmayer
#102. A leaders gentle reaction and sound instruction are their greatest weapons. #Quote by Gary Rohrmayer
Anger quotes by Stephanie Oakes
#103. Anger is a kind of murder you commit in your heart." If this is true, I'm a daily murderer. My heart is more full of blood than I ever imagined. #Quote by Stephanie Oakes
Anger quotes by Cynthia Mock Burroughs
#104. Time does have a way of softening most things. Anger, hate, and even loss are often diluted by the passage of time. And memories, well they become more precious as days go by . . . until one day the cup that seemed half-empty, incredibly, becomes half-full. #Quote by Cynthia Mock Burroughs
Anger quotes by Elizabeth Blair Lee
#105. Anger is the poorest of counselors, and revenge is suicide. #Quote by Elizabeth Blair Lee
Anger quotes by Bushra Rehman
#106. Women's studies classes do not have to be a struggle for power between white women and women of color, yet that is often what they are because of white women's racism. White women must understand that the anger of women of color express in and outside of the classroom towards them is not an issue of "hurt feelings" or "misunderstandings". to reduce our experience of that racism to "misunderstandings" is both racist and reductionist. It is akin to men telling women that we are overreacting to their sexism.

The anger of women of color is a rational, response to our invisibility. It is a rational response to a racist, sexist, capitalist structure. It is not constructive for white women to tell us that our anger is making it hard for them to relate to us, that our anger makes them feel uncomfortable, that we are not willing to find common alliances with them. This is a classic example of white women's racism. They fail to realize that in telling us there is no place for our rage, they are becoming a part of what is colonizing us---the denial of our reality. They have to accept the fact that they don't understand our experiences and have an opportunity to learn something, maybe even about themselves as opposed to wanting to shut us up. Only then can any true understanding result among us. #Quote by Bushra Rehman
Anger quotes by Alexandre Dumas
#107. Milady felt a consolation in seeing nature partake of the disorder of her heart. The thunder growled in the air like the passion and anger in her thoughts. It appeared to her that the blast as it swept along disheveled her brow, as it bowed the branches of the trees and bore away their leaves. She howled as the hurricane howled; and her voice was lost in the great voice of nature, which also seemed to groan with despair. #Quote by Alexandre Dumas
Anger quotes by Glennon Doyle
#108. Every white person who shows up and tells the truth - because it's her duty as a member of our human family - is going to have her racism called out. She will have to accept that others will disagree with how she's showing up and that they will have every right to disagree. She will need to learn to withstand people's anger, knowing that much of it is real and true and necessary. She will need to accept that one of the privileges she's letting burn is her emotional comfort. She will need to remind herself that being called a racist is actually not the worst thing. The worst thing is privately hiding her racism to stay safe, liked, and comfortable while others suffer and die. There are worse things than being criticized - like being a coward. #Quote by Glennon Doyle
Anger quotes by Sharon E. Rainey
#109. With each opportunity before me, God presented me with a choice. I could accept His offerings, His wisdom, His grace. Or I could choose to hold onto the pain, the anger and the resentment a little longer. #Quote by Sharon E. Rainey
Anger quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
#110. For every minute you remain angry, you give up sixty seconds of peace of mind. #Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Anger quotes by Rusty Bradley
#111. If in fact your time to be called before God, you typically won't know it. Sometimes you will, and these are the hardest of times: When the blood pours from your nose and down your throat, clogging it, causing you to spit and gag. You heave for breath in the smoke and dust. Your equipment seems to suffocate you. You wipe the salty sweat and grime from your eyes, only to realize that it is blood, either yours or that of the enemy. You would stand, but you can't move your legs. You grasp the open, gaping wounds in your body, trying not to pass out from the pain. You feel the anger thinking of the loved ones you will never see again, and losing your life infuriates your soul. You rage to get to your feet and grab for a weapon, any weapon. Regardless of your race, culture, or religion, you want to die standing, fighting like a warrior, an American, so others won't have to. For those looking for a definition, this is the price of freedom. #Quote by Rusty Bradley
Anger quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#112. I will find a safer place for Libby to spend the night until your temper has cooled. No woman should be subjected to a man who is under the rule of anger. #Quote by Elizabeth Camden
Anger quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#113. I am only waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands.
That is why it is so late and why I have been guilty of such omissions.
They come with their laws and their codes to bind me fast; but I
evade them ever, for I am only waiting for love to give myself up at
last into his hands.
People blame me and call me heedless; I doubt not they are right
in their blame.
The market day is over and work is all done for the busy. Those
who came to call me in vain have gone back in anger. I am only
waiting for love to give myself up at last into his hands. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Anger quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#114. I'm doing all this for Luke's sake. And yours."
"For my sake?" Startled out of my rising anger, I gave him a round-eyed glance.
"There's not much I wouldn't do for you, Ella," he said quietly. "Haven't you figured that out yet?"
-Jack & Ella #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Anger quotes by Francis Quarles
#115. Anger may repast with thee for an hour, but not repose for a night; the continuance of anger is hatred, the continuance of hatred turns malice. #Quote by Francis Quarles
Anger quotes by Mario Puzo
#116. The Don considered a use of threats the most foolish kind of exposure; the unleashing of anger without forethought as the most dangerous indulgence. No one had ever heard the Don utter a naked threat, no one had ever seen him in an uncontrollable rage. It was unthinkable. #Quote by Mario Puzo
Anger quotes by Mick Harris
#117. I love music/sounds that have a passion, a fire, an energy I can connect with. I love angry sounding beat tracks, dark sounds for sure but I also love delicate sounds, they both connect I think. Discharge back in 1980 was a big explosion in sound for me to hear the anger and the energy, still an influence on me. Miles Davis has been an influence, as much as John Coltrane, Brian Eno, John Hassel. So much around me has influenced me: my everyday life, everything around me, the family, etc ... It has an impact. #Quote by Mick Harris
Anger quotes by Charity Parkerson
#118. It wasn't a conscious decision nor was it only one bad choice that led him here. It was anger, pure unadulterated fury #Quote by Charity Parkerson
Anger quotes by Desmond Tutu
#119. Much depends on your attitude. If you are filled with negative judgment and anger, then you will feel separate from other people. You will feel lonely. But if you have an open heart and are filled with trust and friendship, even if you are physically alone, even living a hermit's life, you will never feel lonely. #Quote by Desmond Tutu
Anger quotes by Henry R Brandt
#120. Anger is inside you, revealed by an outside source. #Quote by Henry R Brandt
Anger quotes by Jillian Cantor
#121. But I am thinking about the way Ezra yelled at Joshua, not so dissimilar to the way my mother and sister used to yell at each other. You have to love someone to yell at them so intensely; you have to care so unbelievably much that your anger explodes and burns across the sky like the Soviet's Sputnik I've read so much about. My sister always thought they fought because Mother hated her, but I knew better. #Quote by Jillian Cantor
Anger quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#122. Gretchen Rubin

The sense of thankfulness, appreciating the grandeur of everyday life, just the ordinary day, and really taking the time to take it in is absolutely crucial. And then when you have that thankfulness, so many other negative emotions get washed away - resentment, anger, grievances, and grudges - because you're just so thankful for what you have. Also, it's better with a sense of humor. It helps me keep my sense of humor, because it helps me keep my sense of perspective. #Quote by Oprah Winfrey
Anger quotes by Sharyn McCrumb
#123. Anger is more productive than fear. #Quote by Sharyn McCrumb
Anger quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#124. If you wish to experience peace, provide peace for another.
If you wish to know that you are safe, cause another to know that they are safe.
If you wish to better understand seemingly incomprehensible things, help another to better understand.
If you wish to heal your own sadness or anger, seek to heal the sadness or anger of another. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Anger quotes by Edna St. Vincent Millay
#125. So up I got in anger, And took a book I had, And put a ribbon on my hair To please a passing lad. And, "One thing there's no getting by
I've been a wicked girl," said I; But if I can't be sorry, why, I might as well be glad! #Quote by Edna St. Vincent Millay
Anger quotes by Ravi Samuel
#126. Freeze when you are angry: your brain needs time to cleanse the anger! #Quote by Ravi Samuel
Anger quotes by Morgan Rhodes
#127. Love is stronger than anger. Love is stronger then hate-stronger than anything. Remember that. #Quote by Morgan Rhodes
Anger quotes by Laura Lee Guhrke
#128. Hate and anger were what had kept him alive. He had fed on them for so long, they were the only emotions he recognized, the only ones he still knew how to feel.
And yet, right now, surrounded by the warmth of the three precious girls who were using him as a pillow, hate seemed very far away, crowded out by things unknown and yet familiar, impossible things. Love. A feeling of belonging. A sense of peace.
He closed his eyes. It was all an illusion. He didn't belong anywhere. He didn't know what love was anymore. And peace ... Christ, what was that? So Conor sat listening to the rain and stealing a few moments of trust and affection he did not deserve from three wee girls who were not his. And he reminded himself at least twice that night that he was not a family man. #Quote by Laura Lee Guhrke
Anger quotes by Arundhati Roy
#129. At the time, there would only be incoherence. As though meaning had slunk out of things and left them fragmented. Disconnected. The glint of Ammu's needle. The colour of a ribbon. The weave of the cross-stitch counterpane. A door slowly breaking. Isolated things that didn't mean anything. As though the intelligence that decodes life's hidden patterns - that connects reflections to images, glints to light, weaves to fabrics, needles to thread, walls to rooms, love to fear to anger to remorse - was suddenly lost. #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Anger quotes by A. J. Jacobs
#130. The key is to pump up your righteous anger and mute your petty resentment. I'll be happy if I can get that balance to fifty-fifty. #Quote by A. J. Jacobs
Anger quotes by George H. W. Bush
#131. I have nothing but contempt and anger for those who betray the trust by exposing the name of [CIA] sources. They are, in my view, the most insidious, of traitors. #Quote by George H. W. Bush
Anger quotes by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
#132. Say not thou, I will recompense evil; but wait on the LORD, and he shall save thee. Proverbs 20:22 BE not in haste. Let anger cool down. Say nothing and do nothing to avenge yourself. You will be sure to act unwisely if you take up the cudgels and fight your own battles; and, certainly, you will not show the spirit of the Lord Jesus. It is nobler to forgive, and let the offence pass. To let an injury rankle in your bosom, and to meditate revenge, is to keep old wounds open, and to make new ones. Better forget and forgive. #Quote by Charles Haddon Spurgeon
Anger quotes by Ron Clark
#133. 2-Make eye contact. When someone is speaking, keep your eyes on him or her at all times. If someone makes a comment, turn and face that person.

3-During discussions, respect other students' comments, opinions, and ideas. When possible, make statements like, "I agree with John, and I also feel that…" or "I disagree with Sarah. She made a good point I feel that…" or "I think Victor made an excellent observation, and it made me realize…"

4-If you win or do well at something, do not brag. If you lose, do not show anger. Instead, say something like, "I really enjoyed the competition, and I look forward to playing you again," or "good game," or don't say anything at all. To show anger or sarcasm, such as "I wasn't playing hard anyway" or "You really aren't that good," shows weakness.

5-"When you cough or sneeze or burp, it is appropriate to turn your head away from others and cover your mouth with the full part of your hand. Using a fist is not acceptable. Afterward, you should say, "Excuse me."

6- "Do not smack your lips, tsk, roll your eyes, or show disrespect with gestures."

7-"Always say thank you when I give you something.

8-"Surprise others by performing random acts of kindness. Go our of your way to do something surprisingly kind and generous for someone at least once a month."

9-"You will make every effort to be as organized as possible."

10-"Quickly learn the name of other tea #Quote by Ron Clark
Anger quotes by Wendy J. Mahill
#134. Shame evokes anxiety about what will happen if someone really knows is, but, because it is impossible to for anxiety and anger to be felt simultaneously, we can dream our anxiety by employing anger or rage in the form of contempt... Contempt, because it feels more powerful has always helped us feel safer and more powerful than the anxiety we feel when we experience shame. [3] #Quote by Wendy J. Mahill
Anger quotes by Victor Hugo
#135. Anger may be foolish and absurd, and one may be wrongly irritated, but a man never feels outraged unless in some respect he is fundamentally right. #Quote by Victor Hugo
Anger quotes by Debra Anastasia
#136. I don't trust you with him," Cole continued. "I'm certain you'll ruin him. You'll want to make him be something other than what he is. He can't change, Livia. He can't be a normal husband or father - or man. He'll never hold a job. He won't provide you with a cushy house and a decent medical plan." Cole's anger was at odds with the peace of the darkened church. The wall candles flickered as if the change in energy had moved the air. #Quote by Debra Anastasia
Anger quotes by Julie Garwood
#137. I am not a poor child, Lady Eleanor," Madelyne announced, letting her anger sound in her voice.
"Duncan won't marry you. He won't sign the contracts. He'd have to give up his greatest treasure in order to marry you."
"And what be that treasure?" Lady Eleanor inquired, her voice mild.
"Why, I'm Duncan's greatest treasure. He'd be a fool to give me up," she added. "And even you must know that Duncan is anything but a fool. #Quote by Julie Garwood
Anger quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#138. Trust me, little one. Everyone makes mistakes. Even the gods, and ours are much worse than those of humans. Unlike humans, we don't suffer alone. Rather, we share the pain with thousands. That's why you must learn to be like your father. To hold in your tears and anger. Try not to punish what you love. (Artemis) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Anger quotes by Mira Lyn Kelly
#139. Connor felt the burn of anger mingling with his guilt. He knew Caroline had been hurt, and he was truly sorry for it. If the barbs she was throwing had been directed at him alone, he would have taken them. But they weren't. "Caro," he said, lowering his voice as he leaned closer #Quote by Mira Lyn Kelly
Anger quotes by Cornel West
#140. Anger can be a bitterness that devours your soul while righteous indignation is morally driven, it's ethically driven. #Quote by Cornel West
Anger quotes by Jamie McGuire
#141. WELL I BELONG TO YOU!" The veins in his neck bulged as he shouted, and I met his glare, refusing to even flinch. He looked at my lips, panting. "I belong to you," he whispered, his anger melting as he realized how close we were. #Quote by Jamie McGuire
Anger quotes by Alice Childress
#142. I was so mad you could have boiled a pot of water on my head. #Quote by Alice Childress
Anger quotes by Arthur Gordon
#143. Words. Just little black marks on paper. Just sounds in the empty air. But think of the power they have! They can make you laugh or cry, love or hate, fight or run away. They can heal or hurt. They even come to look and sound like what they mean. Angry looks angry on the page. Ugly sounds ugly when you say it. #Quote by Arthur Gordon
Anger quotes by Zoe McKnight
#144. Resentment is the worst. Because unlike sadness or anger, it lingers, dangling overhead like a chandelier of shattered glass. At any given moment a shard can fall and slice through an old wound. #Quote by Zoe McKnight
Anger quotes by Orson Scott Card
#145. Religion is tied to the deepest feelings people have. The love that arises from that stewing pot is the sweetest and strongest, but the hate is the hottest, and the anger is the most violent. #Quote by Orson Scott Card
Anger quotes by Shannon Messenger
#146. The right road is rarely the easy road. And no war is ever fought without casualties."
"Is that what this is?" Sophie asked. "A war?"
"Unfortunately, yes. A quiet war to stop a louder one from raging. You may hate me for asking this of him, but this is the cold reality we all face. We cannot control the actions of others, nor stop them from disappointing us. We can only use the anger and pain to fuel us. To help us rise above. #Quote by Shannon Messenger
Anger quotes by Robert Musil
#147. In earlier times, one had an easier conscience about being a person than one does today. People were like cornstalks in a field, probably more violently tossed back and forth by God, hail, fire, pestilence, and war than they are today, but as a whole, as a city, a region, a field, and as to what personal movement was left to the individual stalk – all this was clearly defined and could be answered for. But today responsibility's center of gravity is not in people but in circumstances. Have we not noticed that experiences have made themselves independent of people? They have gone on the stage, into books, into the reports of research institutes and explorers, into ideological or religious communities, which foster certain kinds of experience at the expense of others as if they are conducting a kind of social experiment, and insofar as experiences are not actually being developed, they are simply left dangling in the air. Who can say nowadays that his anger is really his own anger when so many people talk about it and claim to know more about it than he does? A world of qualities without a man has arisen, of experiences without the person who experiences them, and it almost looks as though ideally private experience is a thing of the past, and that the friendly burden of personal responsibility is to dissolve into a system of formulas of possible meanings. Probably the dissolution of the anthropocentric point of view, which for such a long time considered man to be at the cente #Quote by Robert Musil
Anger quotes by Thomas J. Harbin
#148. This intense desire to control is an attempt to maintain dignity in spite of low self-regard. Think about it. In addition to keeping everything safe, the exercise of power temporarily boosts angry men's low self-esteem. [...] Like many kings and other powerful people, however, angry men will soon doubt the affection of those they control. They will always wonder if they are "really" loved by family members, or if their family is just acting that way out of fear. #Quote by Thomas J. Harbin
Anger quotes by Thea Harrison
#149. She folded her arms and said, "No. We're done with the truth game. Ask me what you want to ask me, and I'll answer or not if I like. I'll ask you anything I want, and you'll answer or not if you like. No forfeit, no control, no balance. No more favors or deals or measuring shit. We'll either have a real, messy conversation, or you can get the hell out."

He grew angry. She could feel it shifting through his energy, slow and sulfurous like slow-moving lava.

She liked it. His anger felt satisfying. It meant he wasn't indifferent to her. So she pushed him harder. "Go on, go. #Quote by Thea Harrison
Anger quotes by Jeffrey A. White
#150. Anger, Fear and Intolerance are Our Actual Enemies. #Quote by Jeffrey A. White
Anger quotes by Byron Katie
#151. Hurt feelings or discomfort of any kind cannot be caused by another person. No one outside me can hurt me. That's not a possibility. It's only when I believe a stressful thought that I get hurt. And I'm the one who's hurting me by believing what I think. This is very good news, because it means that I don't have to get someone else to stop hurting me. I'm the one who can stop hurting me. It's within my power.
What we are doing with inquiry is meeting our thoughts with some simple understanding, finally. Pain, anger, and frustration will let us know when it's time to inquire. We either believe what we think or we question it: there's no other choice. Questioning our thoughts is the kinder way. Inquiry always leaves us as more loving human beings. #Quote by Byron Katie
Anger quotes by Jennifer Probst
#152. He'd been ready to push her away, and then she'd grabbed him at her mother's call. Wasn't his fault he gave in to instinct to save their ruse.
Until her hot, wet mouth opened under his. Until her sweet taste swamped his senses, and the maddening scents of vanilla and spice made him want to howl at the moon. He finally knew she approached sex the same way she approached anger - no holds barred - no prisoners taken. Demanding. Punishing. Passionate. #Quote by Jennifer Probst
Anger quotes by Courtney Milan
#153. I've seen Emily's scars, and that's more than you can say.
Fairfield shrunk back from the anger in Anjan's voice. "I meant well," he whispered.
Anjan leaned forward across the desk until he was an inch from the other man. "Mean better. #Quote by Courtney Milan
Anger quotes by Mark W. Sasse
#154. An unbridled pursuit of justice will never stand on moral pillars but will eventually sink to the same morally-bankrupted motive which caused the need for justice in the first place. At that point, the pursuit becomes nothing but a personal quest to justify one's own anger and refusal to live life once again. This became the reality of the shell of a man known as Thuy's father. Thang stood firmly on a collision course with death. Nothing else could satisfy the bitterness. Neighbors, once sympathetic, backed away, frightened that his angst might engulf and destroy #Quote by Mark W. Sasse
Anger quotes by Dada Bhagwan
#155. Every human being is indeed unhappy as long as he is not free from kashays. #Quote by Dada Bhagwan

Anger quotes by Aryn Kyle
#157. I looked back and forth between them, feeling the heat of their anger, the unspoken words swelling in the air like smoke. Jerry took a slow sip from his beer and lit another cigarette. "You don't know anything about that little girl," he told Nona. "You're just jealous because Cap belongs to her now."
I could see Nona's heartbeat flutter beneath her t-shirt, the cords tightening in her neck. "Her mommy and daddy might have paid for him," she whispered. "But he's mine."
I waited for Jerry to cave in to her, to apologize, to make things right between them. But he held her gaze, unwavering. "He's not."
Nona stubbed her cigarette out on the barn floor, then stood. "If you don't believe me," she whispered, "I'll show you."
My sister crossed the barn to Cap's stall and clicked her tongue at him. His gold head appeared in the doorway and Nona swung the stall door open. "Come on out." she told him.
Don't!" I said, but she didn't pause.
Cap took several steps forward until he was standing completely free in the barn. I jumped up, blocking the doorway so that he couldn't bolt. Jerry stood and widened himself beside me, stretching out his arms. "What the hell are you doing?" he asked.
Nona stood beside Cap's head and lifted her arms as though she was holding an invisible lead rope. When she began to walk, Cap moved alongside her, matching his pace to hers.
Whoa," Nona said quietly and Cap stopped. My sister made small noises with her tongue, whisp #Quote by Aryn Kyle

#158. We shall find no fiend in hell can match the fury of a disappointed woman; scorned, slighted, dismissed without a parting pang. #Quote by Colley Cibber
Anger quotes by Saint John Chrysostom
#159. Intemperance is a hydra with a hundred heads. She never stalks abroad unaccompanied with impurity, anger, and the most infamous profligacies. #Quote by Saint John Chrysostom
Anger quotes by Joan Lunden
#160. Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life. #Quote by Joan Lunden
Anger quotes by Fredrik Backman
#161. Not all monsters look like monsters. There are some that carry their monstrosity inside. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Anger quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#162. Anger, resentment, and bitterness stunt our spiritual growth. Would you bathe in impure water? Then why do we bathe our spirits with negative and bitter thoughts and feelings? You can cleanse your heart. You don't have to harbor thoughts and feelings that drag you down and destroy your spirit. #Quote by Joseph B. Wirthlin
Anger quotes by Thomas Van Nortwick
#163. our contemporary ideas about manliness, reflected in action movies and westerns, generally prohibit so-called real men from displaying high emotion, with the exception of anger. John Wayne doesn't cry. By contrast, Achilles, the epitome of manliness in Homer's Iliad, weeps openly and at length over the loss of his friend Patroclus. #Quote by Thomas Van Nortwick
Anger quotes by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
#164. We usually know more about suppressing anger than feeling it. Tell a counselor how angry you are. Share it with friends and family. Scream into a pillow. Find ways to get it out without hurting yourself or someone else. Try walking, swimming, gardening - any type of exercise helps you externalize your anger. Do not bottle up anger inside. Instead, explore it. The anger is just another indication of the intensity of your love. #Quote by Elisabeth Kubler Ross
Anger quotes by Alanis Morissette
#165. When someone says that I'm angry it's actually a compliment. I have not always been direct with my anger in my relationships, which is part of why I'd write about it in my songs because I had such fear around expressing anger as a woman. #Quote by Alanis Morissette
Anger quotes by Nell Hudson
#166. I think, often, when you are in just a lot of pain, it comes out as anger. #Quote by Nell Hudson
Anger quotes by Lisa Lace
#167. I knew that holding a grudge only hurts the one who holds it. It only eats away at the one who has the anger and bitterness inside. #Quote by Lisa Lace
Anger quotes by Kathleen Norris
#168. Anger, [Evagrius] wrote, is given to us by God to help us confront true evil. We err when we use it casually, against other people, to gratify our own desires for power or control. #Quote by Kathleen Norris
Anger quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#169. Slumism is the pent-up anger of people living on the outside of affluence. Slumism is decay of structure and deterioration of the human spirit. Slumism is a virus which spreads through the body politic. As other "isms," it breeds disorder and demagoguery and hate. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Anger quotes by Leon Uris
#170. I know writers have to be crazy. But more than that that, they have to get made and stay mad. If things don't make a writer mad, he'll end up writing Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottantail. #Quote by Leon Uris
Anger quotes by Matshona Dhliwayo

Anger quotes by Melyssa Winchester

#173. Poetry = Anger x Imagination #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Anger quotes by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
#174. In your madness you said you loved me," she murmured shyly.

His humor fled, and the smile left her lips as she continued, "You said it before, too. When the storm struck, I asked you to love me, and you said you did." Her voice was the barest of whispers.

Ruark's gaze turned away from her, and he rubbed the bandage on his leg before he spoke. "Strange that madness should speak the truth, but truth it is." He met her questioning eyes directly. "Aye, I love you." The pain of longing marked his face with a momentary sadness. "And that is madness, in all truth."

Shanna raised herself form his side and sat on her heels, staring down at him. "Why do you love me?" Her tone was wondrous. "I beset you at every turn. I deny you as a fit mate. I have betrayed you into slavery and worse. There is no sanity in your plea at all. How can you love me?"

"Shanna! Shanna! Shanna!" he sighed, placing his fingers on her hand and gently tracing the lines of her finely boned fingers. "What man would boast the wisdom of his love? How many time has this world heard, 'I don't care, I love.' Do I count your faults and sins to tote them in a book?"

...

"I dream of unbelievable softness. I remember warmth at my side the likes of which can set my heart afire. I see in the dark before me softly glowing eyes of aqua, once tender in a moment of love, then flashing with defiance and anger, now dark and blue with some stirring I know I have cau #Quote by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss
Anger quotes by Paul Auster
#175. Nevertheless, this anger was inside him - I believe constantly. Like the house that was well ordered and yet falling apart from within, the man himself was calm, almost supernatural in his imperturbability, and yet prey to a roiling, unstoppable force of fury within. All his life he strove to avoid a confrontation with this force, nurturing a kind of automatic behavior that would allow him to pass to the side of it. Reliance on fixed routines freed him from the necessity of looking into himself when decisions had to be made; the cliche was always quick to come to his lips ("A beautiful baby. Good luck with it") instead of words he had gone out and looked for. All this tended to flatten him out as a personality. But at the same time, it was also what saved him, the thing that allowed him to live. To the extent that he was able to live #Quote by Paul Auster
Anger quotes by Todd Boyd
#176. I wish I was a rapper. There are certainly times when I wish I could just drop an album and channel all my ideas, anger, humor and energy into some music and be done with it. #Quote by Todd Boyd
Anger quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#177. General propositions – universal laws governing human thinking and human existence – leave room for many individualistic permutations. How shall I survive the specter of tomorrow, what is my life plan, and how will I come to terms with the finite lives of all humankind? How do I heal seeping internal wounds that lacerations weaken personal resolve? A person whom avoids seeking fame and fortune and engages in contemplative thought will enjoy a heightened state of existence. My survival hinges upon shedding the shackles of modern time's economic rigors; seeking penance through heartfelt contrition; accepting a vision quest devoid of wanting; rejoicing in my budding curiosity; loving nature; giving breath to living without fear and apprehension; and eliminating any form of want or angst from my cerebral being. Unshackling myself from the burdens of the past – guilt, remorse, anger, and petty resentments – is part of the healing process. The other part of a rehabilitation prescription is declaring free rein to live in the present one moment at a time. After all, humankind is the only member of the animal kingdom that walks this earth with the foreknowledge of its ultimate demise, but why would any person allow information pertaining to our personal fate ruin a perfectly good walk in nature's woodlands with our fellow creatures? #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Anger quotes by Veronica Roth
#178. And everyone saw me. Tobias saw me.
I hear footsteps. Tobias marches toward me and wrenches me to my feet.
"What the hell was that, Stiff?"
"I ... " My breath comes in a hiccup. "I didn't-"
"Get yourself together! This is pathetic."
Something within me snaps. My tears stop. Heat races through my body, driving the weakness out of me, and I smack him so hard my knuckles burn with the impact. He stares at me, one side of his face bright with blush-blood, and I stare back.
"Shut up," I say. I yank my arm from his grasp and walk out of the room. #Quote by Veronica Roth
Anger quotes by Isabel Lopez
#179. I eventually came to understand that in harboring the anger, the bitterness and resentment towards those that had hurt me, I was giving the reins of control over to them. Forgiving was not about accepting their words and deeds. Forgiving was about letting go and moving on with my life. In doing so, I had finally set myself free. #Quote by Isabel Lopez
Anger quotes by Fran Wilde
#180. I tried to quash my anger and fear. If I was being set up to fail, then I would fail spectacularly. #Quote by Fran Wilde
Anger quotes by Michelle Sagara West
#181. Death was silence, loss, guilt. And anger. But life led that way, anyway. From birth, it was a slow, long march to the grave. Who said that? She couldn't remember now. But it was true. They were born dying. If they were very lucky, the dying was called aging. They reached toward if as if they were satellites in unstable orbits. And then when they got there, they were just dead. One moment in time separated the living from the ghosts. #Quote by Michelle Sagara West
Anger quotes by Bronislaw Malinowski
#182. Magic enables man to carry out with confidence his important tasks, to maintain his poise and his mental integrity in fits of anger, in the throes of hate, of unrequited love, of despair and anxiety. The function of magic is to ritualize man's optimism, to enhance his faith in the victory of hope over fear. Magic expresses the greater value for man of confidence over doubt, of steadfastness over vacillation, of optimism over pessimism. #Quote by Bronislaw Malinowski
Anger quotes by Henry B. Eyring
#183. It is a lie that our anger justifies our impulse to hurt or ignore our antagonists. We are to forgive to be forgiven. To wait for them to repent before we forgive and repent is to allow them to choose for us a delay which could cost us happiness here and hereafter. #Quote by Henry B. Eyring
Anger quotes by Rhoda Baruch
#184. Besides, just being heard helps the other person calm down and feel less angry. We often yell when we are angry because we want to be Heard. #Quote by Rhoda Baruch
Anger quotes by Michel De Montaigne
#185. To behave rightly, we ourselves should never lay a hand on our servants as long as our anger lasts. Things will seem different to us when we have quieted and cooled down. #Quote by Michel De Montaigne
Anger quotes by Ally Condie
#186. It's been so long since I've let myself feel anger that I don't just feel it. It covers my mouth and I swallow it down, the taste sharp and metal as though I'm gnawing through foilware. #Quote by Ally Condie
Anger quotes by Alfred W. Tatum
#187. However, many African-American boys feel loathed before they are loved, feel rejected before they are respected, and feel alienated before they are educated. These feelings often morph into expressions of anger. #Quote by Alfred W. Tatum
Anger quotes by Gary Oldman
#188. I drank for about 25 years getting over the loss of my father and I took the anger out on myself. I did a good job at beating myself up at sometimes. I don't drink anymore but my alcoholic head occasionally says different. 'Nil By Mouth' was a love letter to my father because I needed to resolve some issues in order to be able to forgive him. #Quote by Gary Oldman
Anger quotes by Erick Erickson
#189. What I mean is that conservatives are in a constant state of hair-on-fire, yelling anger, #Quote by Erick Erickson
Anger quotes by Jaimal Yogis
#190. We were both holding on to this thing, this monster between us. And now that I saw it, I could almost feel it hovering there, tangible. It was wrapping its stickiness around our throats - and we were helping it. We were grabbing on to it tightly, believing it was part of us. But it wasn't. It was a thing we'd each created. It was a bad wave we'd caught and it had closed out and was holding us down. All we needed to do was let it pass. All we needed to do was stop grabbing at it. #Quote by Jaimal Yogis
Anger quotes by Vizi Andrei
#191. Show your anger when needed. People need to know what irritates you and what doesn't.
But, crucially, remain internally calm.
Your anger is only a tool. Don't become its puppet. #Quote by Vizi Andrei
Anger quotes by Paulo Coelho
#192. The ordinary man thinks that yielding to doubts and worries is a sign of sensibility, of spirituality. Acting thus, he remains distant from the true meaning of life, for his reduced reasoning turns him into the saint or monster he imagines he is, and before he realizes it, he is caught in the trap he has set himself. This type of person loves being told what he should do, but even more than that, he loves not following sound advice - simply in order to anger the generous soul who, at a certain moment, was concerned about him. #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Anger quotes by Nahoko Uehashi
#193. Fighting is in my very bones. I don't have any fancy, noble reason like anger at my fate. I'm just like a gamecock that launches itself into battle after meaningless battle. I like fighting. That's why I can't stop. #Quote by Nahoko Uehashi
Anger quotes by Celeste Ng
#194. There was no room left in her for anger. Something within her tipped and cracked. #Quote by Celeste Ng
Anger quotes by Elisa Albert
#195. For as long as wimmin have had the temerity to experience feelings of anger, sadness, frustration, and deep resentment, patriarchal society has denied them these feelings, and, in fact, punished them heartily for feeling anything at all. #Quote by Elisa Albert
Anger quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#196. Anger warms the invention, but overheats the oven. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Anger quotes by G.A. Aiken
#197. Brastias. My friend." Uh-oh, this couldn't be good. "Do you lie to me?"
"Uh ... no."
"See? That's a lie! #Quote by G.A. Aiken
Anger quotes by Marshall B. Rosenberg

Anger quotes by Josh Billings
#199. Silence is one of the hardest arguments to refute. #Quote by Josh Billings
Anger quotes by Arlie Russell Hochschild
#200. Each person's drive to overwork is unique, and doing too much numbs every workaholic's emotions differently. Sometimes overwork numbs depression, sometimes anger, sometimes envy, sometimes sexuality. Or the overworker runs herself ragged in a race for attention. #Quote by Arlie Russell Hochschild
