Temper quotes by Desi Arnaz
#1. My Latin temper blows up pretty fast, but it goes down just as fast. Maybe that's why you seldom hear of ulcers in Latin America. #Quote by Desi Arnaz
Temper quotes by Robert Penn Warren
#2. Let us leave in suspension such debates about the economic costs of the War and look at another kind of cost, a kind more subtle, pervasive, and continuing, a kind that conditions in a thousand ways the temper of American life today. This cost is psychological, and it is, of course, different for the winner and the loser. #Quote by Robert Penn Warren
Temper quotes by Emily Bronte
#3. You forget you have a master here,' says the tyrant. 'I'll demolish the first who puts me out of temper! I insist on perfect sobriety and silence. Oh, boy! was that you? Frances, darling, pull his hair as you go by; I heard him snap his fingers.'
'Frances pulled his hair heartily; #Quote by Emily Bronte
Temper quotes by Adam Smith
#4. The man who indulges us in this natural passion, who invites us into his heart, who, as it were, sets open the gates of his breast to us, seems to exercise a species of hospitality more delightful than any other. No man, who is in ordinary good temper, can fail of pleasing, if he has the courage to utter his real sentiments as he feels them, and because he feels them. #Quote by Adam Smith
Temper quotes by Charles Dickens
#5. Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Temper quotes by James Boswell
#6. I am sensible that my keenness of temper, and a vanity to be distinguished for the day, make me too often splash in life ... I amresolved to restrain myself and attend more to decorum. #Quote by James Boswell
Temper quotes by Cassandra Clare
#7. You don't sound very patriotic," observed Tessa.
"Weren't you just reminiscing about the mountains?"
"Patriotic?" Will looked smug.
"I'll tell you what's patriotic," he said.
"In honor of my birthplace, I've the dragon of Wales tattooed on my - "
"You're in a charming temper, aren't you, William?" interrupted Jem,
though there was no edge to his voice. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Temper quotes by Diana Wynne Jones
#8. For a moment it seemed as if he was going to lose his temper too. His strange, pale eyes all but glared at Sophie. But he controlled himself and said, Now trot along indoors, you overactive old thing, and find something else to play with before I get angry. I hate getting angry. #Quote by Diana Wynne Jones
Temper quotes by W.S. Gilbert
#9. If you give me your attention, I will tell you what I am:
I'm a genuine philanthropist
all other kinds are sham.
Each little fault of temper and each social defect
In my erring fellow creatures, I endeavor to correct. #Quote by W.S. Gilbert
Temper quotes by Libba Bray
#10. Because I'm not enough, she thought. That was the terrible echo shouting up at her: Fraud, fraud, fraud. She got drunk and talked too much and danced on tables. She had a temper and a sharp tongue, and she often blurted out things she instantly regretted. Worst of all, she suspected that was who she truly was - not so much a bright young thing as a messy young thing. #Quote by Libba Bray
Temper quotes by J.D. Robb
#11. Roarke, one thing." She walked to him, well aware he was all but snarling with temper. "I haven't kissed you good-bye," she murmured and did so with a thoroughness that rocked him
back on his heels. "Thank you." Before he could speak, she kissed him again. "For always knowing what matters to me."
"You're welcome." Possessively, he ran a hand over her tousled hair. "Miss me." "I already am." "Don't take any unnecessary chances." His hands gripped in her hair hard, briefly. "There's
no use asking you not to take the necessary ones."
"Then don't." Her heart stuttered when he kissed her hand. "Safe trip, " she told him when he stepped into the elevator. She was new at it, so waited until the doors were almost shut. "I
love you." The last thing she saw was the flash of his grin. #Quote by J.D. Robb
Temper quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#12. I observed mildness of temper, and unchangeable resolution in the things that he had determined after due deliberation; and no vainglory in those things that men call honors; and a love of labor and perseverance; and a readiness to listen to those who had anything to propose for the common weal; and undeviating firmness in giving to every man according to his deserts; and a knowledge derived from experience of the occasions for vigorous action and for remission. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Temper quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#13. Through certain humors or passions, and from temper merely, a man may be completely miserable, let his outward circumstances be ever so fortunate. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Temper quotes by J.M. Darhower
#14. You're too good for me."
He laughed. "Are we talking about the same person? The selfish fucker who curses and yells, blows up cars and beats up people, because he has a temper he can't control? You know, the one who drinks like a fish and fries his brain with drugs? That person is too good for you?"
She shook her head. "I'm talking about the boy who shared his chocolate bar with me when he probably never shared anything before, who gave me his mama's favourite book, because he thought I deserved to read. The one who seems to be constantly fixing me up when I get hurt. I'm talking about the boy who treats me like I'm a regular girl, the one who desperately needs his bedroom cleaned and laundry washed but chooses to live in a mess and wear dirty clothes, because he's too polite to ask the girl he kisses for help."
"Wow," Carmine said. "I'd like to meet that motherfucker. #Quote by J.M. Darhower
Temper quotes by Timothy C.W. Blanning
#15. But the relationship between the between the two cultural paradigms has always been a dialectical, not cyclical. The romantics were not repeating their ancestors. On the contrary, they brought about a cultural revolution comparable in its radicalism and effects with the roughly contemporary American, French, and Industrial Revolutions.
By destroying natural law and by reorienting concern from the work to the artist they tore up the old regime's aesthetic rule book just as thoroughly as any Jacobin [a 18th century political French club] tore down social institutions. In the words of Ernst Troeltsch: "Romanticism too is a revolution, a thorough and genuine revolution: a revolution against the respectability of the bourgeois temper and against a universal equalitarian ethic: a revolution, above all, against the whole of the mathematico-mechanical spirit of science in western Europe, against a conception of Natural Law which sought to blend utility with morality, against the bare abstraction of a universal and equal Humanity." [Unquote Troeltsch]
As will be argued in the subsequent chapters, it was Hegel who captured the essence of this revolution in his pithy definition of romanticism as "absolute inwardness" [absloute Innerlichkeit - in German - אינערליכקייט]. It will also be argued that its prophet was Jean-Jacques Rousseau: if not the most consistent, then certainly the most influential of all the eighteenth-century thinkers.
Writing in 1907, Lytton Strachey ca #Quote by Timothy C.W. Blanning
Temper quotes by Gonjasufi
#16. Everybody that knows me knows I have a temper. #Quote by Gonjasufi
Temper quotes by Frances Hodgson Burnett
#17. He found her under my care," she protested. "I have done everything for her. But for me she should have starved in the streets."
Here the Indian gentleman lost his temper.
"As to starving in the streets," he said, "she might have starved more comfortably there than in your attic. #Quote by Frances Hodgson Burnett
Temper quotes by Isaac Newton
#18. 'Tis the temper of the hot and superstitious part of mankind in matters of religion ever to be fond of mysteries, and for that reason to like best what they understand least. #Quote by Isaac Newton
Temper quotes by Emil M. Cioran
#19. When someone tells us of an unfavorable opinion about ourselves, instead of being distressed, we should think of all the "evil" we have spoken of others, and realize that it is only justice that as much should be said of ourselves. Ironically, no one is more vulnerable, more susceptible, and less likely to acknowledge his own defects than the backbiter. Merely tell him about the slightest reservation someone has made in his regard, and he will lose countenance, lose his temper, and drown in his own bile. #Quote by Emil M. Cioran
Temper quotes by Charles Dickens
#20. It opens the lungs, washes the countenance, exercises the eyes, and softens down the temper; so cry away. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Temper quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#21. If you were asked to spell the name Antoninus, would you rap out each letter at the top of voice, and then, if your hearers grew angry, grow angry yourself in turn? Rather, would you not proceed to enumerate the several letters quietly one by one? Well then; remember that here in life every piece of duty is likewise made up of its separate items. Pay careful attention to each of these, without fuss and without returning temper for temper, and so ensure the methodical completion of your task. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Temper quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#22. Later on in Culture and Society, Williams scores a few points by reprinting some absolutist sentences that, taken on their own, represent exaggerations or generalisations. It was a strength and weakness of Orwell's polemical journalism that he would begin an essay with a bold and bald statement designed to arrest attention - a tactic that, as Williams rightly notices, he borrowed in part from GK Chesterton and George Bernard Shaw. No regular writer can re-read his own output of ephemera without encountering a few wince-making moments of this kind; Williams admits to 'isolating' them but has some fun all the same. The flat sentence 'a humanitarian is always a hypocrite' may contain a particle of truth - does in fact contain such a particle - but will not quite do on its own. Other passages of Orwell's, on the failure of the Western socialist movement, read more convincingly now than they did when Williams was mocking them, but are somewhat sweeping for all that. And there are the famous outbursts of ill-temper against cranks and vegetarians and homosexuals, which do indeed disfigure the prose and (even though we still admire Pope and Swift for the heroic unfairness of their invective) probably deserve rebuke. However, Williams betrays his hidden bias even when addressing these relatively easy targets. He upbraids Orwell for the repeated use of the diminutive word 'little' as an insult ('The typical Socialist ... a prim little man,' 'the typical little bowlerhatted sneak,' etc. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Temper quotes by Bethany-Kris
#23. I'm not an easy lay, I won't do a one-night stand, and my father is a mob boss with a short temper and a collection of guns. Still want to take me out?" - Ana Avdonin #Quote by Bethany-Kris
Temper quotes by Edith Sitwell
#24. My temper is not spoilt. I am absolutely non-homicidal. Nor do I ever attack unless I have been attacked first, and then Heaven have mercy upon the attacker, because I don't! I just sharpen my wits on a wooden head as a cat sharpens its claws on the wood legs of a table. #Quote by Edith Sitwell
Temper quotes by Cassandra Clare
#25. You are the two halves of a whole. You must be different, like light and shadow- he brings you caution to temper your recklessness, and you bring him recklessness to temper his caution. Without each other you would not function as well as you do. That is what parabatai means. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Temper quotes by Thomas Jefferson
#26. Beer, if drank with moderation, softens the temper, cheers the spirit, and promotes health. #Quote by Thomas Jefferson
Temper quotes by Jessica Alba
#27. For me, makeup is about being your best self. If I wake up in a foul mood and have to deal with temper tantrums and an exploding diaper
I know taking 10 minutes to get my game face on will reset my stress levels. It's a chance to check in and remind myself
you got this. #Quote by Jessica Alba
Temper quotes by Erin Hunter
#28. If Nightcloud were a gentle, loving cat like Leafpool, or feisty and warmhearted like Squirrelflight, it would be easier to feel sorry for her. After all, Crowfeather took her as a mate to prove he was loyal to WindClan in spite of everything of trying to run off with the ThunderClan medicine cat. But she's a difficult she-cat to like, with her short temper and her possessivness over Crowfeather and her son, Breezepaw. #Quote by Erin Hunter
Temper quotes by Margaret Atwood
#29. Sometimes when I am dusting the mirror with the grapes I look at myself in it, although I know it is vanity. In the afternoon light of the parlour my skin is a pale mauve, like a faded bruise, and my teeth are greenish. I think of all the things that have been written about me - that I am inhuman female demon, that I am an innocent victim of a blackguard forced against my will and in danger of my own life, that I was too ignorant to know how to act and that to hang me would be judicial murder, that I am fond of animals, that I am very handsome with a brilliant complexion, that I have blue eyes, that I have green eyes, that I have auburn and also have brown hair, that I am tall and also not above the average height, that I am well and decently dressed, that I robbed a dead woman to appear so, that I am brisk and smart about my work, that I am of a sullen disposition with a quarrelsome temper, that I have the appearance of a person rather above my humble station, that I am a good girl with a pliable nature and no harm is told of me, that I am cunning and devious, that I am soft in the head and little better than an idiot. And I wonder, how can I be all of these different things at once? #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Temper quotes by Deanna Raybourn
#30. I matched my heated tone with one of pure ice. "I believe I did attempt to relate to you the facts of my calls and you interrupted me with a rather magnificent display of temper much as you are doing now. If you do not have all the facts of the case perhaps you have no one but yourself to blame." Brisbane opened his mouth and shut it with a snap. His mouth remained closed but I could hear him muttering under his breath. "What are you saying?" "I am counting. To one hundred. In Cantonese. #Quote by Deanna Raybourn
Temper quotes by Marcus Aurelius
#31. How do we know that Telauges wasn't a better man than Socrates? It's not enough to ask whether Socrates' death was nobler, whether he debated with the sophists more adeptly, whether he showed greater endurance by spending the night out in the cold, and when he was ordered to arrest the man from Salamis decided it was preferable to refuse, and "swaggered about the streets" (which one could reasonably doubt). What matters is what kind of soul he had. Whether he was satisfied to treat men with justice and the gods with reverence and didn't lose his temper unpredictably at evil done by others, didn't make himself the slave of other people's ignorance, didn't treat anything that nature did as abnormal, or put up with it as an unbearable imposition, didn't put his mind in his body's keeping. #Quote by Marcus Aurelius
Temper quotes by Eve Langlais
#32. In her eyes, he could see the fear, but also the love. The need. Time to show her, that to him, she meant everything.
"Before you shower me with kisses for saving you –"
"I think it could be argued that I played a part."
"Not when I retell the story you won't. But we can argue about that later, naked. As I was saying, I have something for you." Remy pulled the sheet of paper out of his back pocket and unfolded it.
Initially he'd worried about it being too short. But as Lucifer assured him when he made the contract and binding, the less clauses he put in, the more his promise would stick out. Handing it to her, he waited.
Fidgeted when she didn't say a word. Almost tore it from her grasp. Then stumbled back as she threw herself at him.

I, Remy, the most awesome demon in Hell, do declare to love the witch Ysabel, fiery temper and all, for an eternity. I will never stray. Never betray her trust. Never do anything to cause her pain upon penalty of permanent death.
This I do swear in blood,
Remy

A simple contract, which in its very lack of clauses and sub items, awed her. "You love me that much?"
He peered at her with incredulity on his face. "Of course I love you that much. Would I have done all the things I did if I didn't?"
"Well, you are related to a mad woman."
"Yes, and maybe it's madness for me to love you, but I do. Do you think just any woman would inspire me enough to take on a bloody pai #Quote by Eve Langlais
Temper quotes by Elizabeth Camden
#33. 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
Temper quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#34. I hope you will be a great deal better, dear, but you must keep watch over your 'bosom enemy,' as Father calls it, or it may sadden, if not spoil your life. You have had a warning; remember it, and try with heart and soul to master this quick temper, before it brings you greater sorrow and regret than you have known today. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Temper quotes by Sophocles
#35. Reason is God's crowning gift to man, and you are right
To warn me against losing mine. I cannot say
I hope that I shall never want to say! - that you
Have reasoned badly. Yet there are other men
Who can reason, too; and their opinions might be helpful.
You are not in a position to know everything
That people say or do, or what they feel:
Your temper terrifies them - everyone
Will tell you only what you like to hear. #Quote by Sophocles
Temper quotes by William Godwin
#36. It has an unhappy effect upon the human understanding and temper, for a man to be compelled in his gravest investigation of an argument, to consider, not what is true, but what is convenient. #Quote by William Godwin
Temper quotes by Sonam Kapoor
#37. It's difficult for me to really temper my personality, but I am trying to be a little more sensible about it. If I really lose my temper, I go to my room and scream and shout, but I try not to lose it on people any more. I've never said something mean just like that. I've only said things in retaliation. #Quote by Sonam Kapoor
Temper quotes by Jane Austen
#38. Elizabeth was excessively disappointed ... but it was her business to be satisfied - and certainly her temper to be happy; and all was soon right again. #Quote by Jane Austen
Temper quotes by Emily Post
#39. Golf is a particularly severe strain upon the amiability of the average person's temper, and in no other game, except bridge, is serenity of disposition so essential. #Quote by Emily Post
Temper quotes by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
#40. It is not wit merely, but temper, which must form the well-bred man. In the same manner it is not a head merely, but a heart and resolution, which must complete the real philosopher. #Quote by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 7th Earl Of Shaftesbury
Temper quotes by Loretta Chase
#41. We have been wed scarcely three days," she said. "You do not desert your new bride for your sapskull friends. You will not make a laughingstock of me. If you are unhappy with me, you say so, and we discuss it - or quarrel, if you prefer. But you do not - "
"You do not dictate to me," he said levelly. "You do not tell me where I may and may not go - or when - or with whom. I do not explain to you and you do not question. And you do not come into my room and throw temper fits."
"Yes, I do," she said. "If you leave this house, I will shoot your horse out from under you."
"Shoot my - "
"I will not permit you to desert me," she said. "You will not take me for granted as Sherburne does his wife, and you will not make all the world laugh at me - or pity me - as they do her. If you cannot bear to miss your precious wrestling match, you can jolly well take me with you."
"Take you?" His voice climbed. "I'll bloody well take you, madam - straight to your room. And lock you in, if you can't behave yourself. #Quote by Loretta Chase
Temper quotes by Emily Bronte
#42. You shall not leave me in that temper.
I should be miserable all night, and I won't be miserable for you! #Quote by Emily Bronte
Temper quotes by Rebecca Zanetti
#43. You totally have a temper," Greyson said, reading his mind as usual. Maureen nodded. "I've only seen it once, but it was spectacular. "I do not," Damon gritted out. "I'm the fucking calm one. #Quote by Rebecca Zanetti
Temper quotes by Christina Lauren
#44. I cleared my throat and began my presentation. As I moved through the different aspects of the proposal, he stayed silent, staring directly at his copy. Why was he so calm? His temper tantrums I could handle. But the eerie silence? It was unnerving.

I was leaning over the table, gesturing toward a set of graphs, when it happened.

"Their timeline for the first milestone is a little ambi-" I stopped midsentence, my breath caught in my throat. His hand pressed gently into my lower back before sliding down, settling on the curve of my ass. In the nine months I had worked for him, he had never intentionally touched me.

This was most definitely intentional. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Temper quotes by Mike Krzyzewski
#45. I had a really bad temper, when I was growing up. Sport helped me channel that temper into more positive acts. #Quote by Mike Krzyzewski
Temper quotes by Carlos Castaneda
#46. Once you decide something put all your petty fears away. Your decision should vanquish them. I will tell you time and time again, the most effective way to live is as a warrior. Worry and think before you make any decision, but once you make it, be on your way free from worries or thoughts; there will be a million other decisions still awaiting you. That's the warrior's way.
A warrior thinks of his death when things become unclear. The idea of death is the only thing that tempers our spirit. #Quote by Carlos Castaneda
Temper quotes by Thomas Hobbes
#47. Moral philosophy is nothing else but the science of what is good, and evil, in the conversation, and society of mankind. Good, and evil, are names that signify our appetites, and aversions; which in different tempers, customs, and doctrines of men, are different. #Quote by Thomas Hobbes
Temper quotes by Baron De Montesquieu
#48. The mood and temper of the public in regard to the treatment of crime and criminals is one of the most unfailing tests of the civilisation of any country. #Quote by Baron De Montesquieu
Temper quotes by Jane Austen
#49. His temper might perhaps be a little soured [ ... ]'Mr. Palmer is just the kind of man I like, #Quote by Jane Austen
Temper quotes by Sylvia Fraser
#50. My childhood was marked by seizures, which my family interpreted as temper tantrums. #Quote by Sylvia Fraser
Temper quotes by Tommy Lee
#51. I don't have a problem with my temper. #Quote by Tommy Lee
Temper quotes by L.H. Cosway
#52. All that matters is that I have you. The rest is background noise. It's not worth breaking a nail over, never mind losing my temper. And if it means we get to be together, I'll take it all with a smile on my face because you and me, darling, we're the real deal. You are worth fighting for. I'm not letting you go now, not for all the tea in China."

Annie smiled and let out a nervous chuckle as I sucked her bottom lip into my mouth. "That's a lot of tea."

"Fuck yeah, it is. #Quote by L.H. Cosway
Temper quotes by Emma Hamm
#53. What is a queen without a king?"
"A dark, powerful creature with no man to temper her steel. You shall wield a sword as your crown, a whip as your jewels, and armor as your gown. #Quote by Emma Hamm
Temper quotes by Philip Dormer Stanhope
#54. Keep your own secret, and get out other people's. #Quote by Philip Dormer Stanhope
Temper quotes by Laozi
#55. The best soldiers are not warlike; the best fighters do not lose their temper. The greatest conquerors are those who overcome their enemies without strife. The greatest directors of men are those who yield place to others. This is called the Virtue of not striving, the capacity for directing mankind; this is being the compeer of Heaven. It was the highest goal of the ancients. #Quote by Laozi
Temper quotes by William Blake
#56. Oh! why was I born with a different face? why was I not born like the rest of my race? when
I look,each one starts! when I speak, I offend; then Im silent & passive & lose every friend. Then
my verse I dishonour, my pictures despise, my person degrade & my temper chastise; and the pen is my terror, the pencil my shame; all my talents I bury, and dead is my fame. Im either too low or too highly prized; when elate I m envy'd, when meek Im despis'd #Quote by William Blake
Temper quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#57. I was a little cross.I ask pardon. If I do get up a little temper I have no sufficient time to keep it up. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Temper quotes by Toni Aleo
#58. But remember, Kacey has a temper and she's crazy protective of you so if you need bail money, let me know. #Quote by Toni Aleo
Temper quotes by Wes Craven
#59. A lot of life is dealing with your curse, dealing with the cards you were given that aren't so nice. Does it make you into a monster, or can you temper it in some way, or accept it and go in some other direction? #Quote by Wes Craven
Temper quotes by Jerry Bridges
#60. Uncontrolled temper is soon dissipated on others. Resentment, bitterness, and self-pity build up inside our hearts and eat away at our spiritual lives like a slowly spreading cancer. #Quote by Jerry Bridges
Temper quotes by Alain De Botton
#61. Newspapers are being read all around. The point is not, of course, to glean new information, but rather to coax the mind out of its sleep-induced introspective temper. #Quote by Alain De Botton
Temper quotes by Cassandra Clare
#62. Steel and temper, daughter. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Temper quotes by T.E. Lawrence
#63. It is difficult to keep quiet when everything is being done wrong, but the less you lose your temper the greater your advantage. Also then you will not go mad yourself. #Quote by T.E. Lawrence
Temper quotes by Abigail Thomas
#64. Well now I know I can control my tongue, my temper & my appetites, but that's it. I have no effect on weather, traffic or luck. I can't make good things happen; I can't keep anybody safe; I can't influence the future & I can't fix up the past. What a relief!
from book A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas #Quote by Abigail Thomas
Temper quotes by Gerald R. Ford
#65. Can a free people restrain crime without sacrificing fundamental liberties and a heritage of compassion? ... Let us show that we can temper together those opposite elements of liberty and restraint into one consistent whole. Let us set an example for the world of a law-abiding America glorying in its freedom as well as its respect for law. #Quote by Gerald R. Ford
Temper quotes by Patrick O'Brian
#66. You are to consider that a certain melancholy and often a certain irascibility accompany advancing age: indeed it might be said that advancing age equals ill-temper. On reaching the middle years a man perceives that he is no longer able to do certain things, that what looks he may have had are deserting him, that he has a ponderous great belly, and that however much he may yet burn he is no longer attractive to women; and he rebels. Fortitude, resignation and philosophy are of more value than any pills, red, white or blue. #Quote by Patrick O'Brian
Temper quotes by Lauren Oliver
#67. I wonder what Lena is doing now. I always wonder what Lena is doing. Rachel, too: both my girls, my beautiful, big-eyed girls. But I worry about Rachel less. Rachel was always harder than Lena, somehow. More defiant, more stubborn, less feeling . Even as a girl, she frightened me - fierce and fiery-eyed, with a temper like my father's once was.
But Lena . . . little darling Lena, with her tangle of dark hair and her flushed, chubby cheeks. She used to rescue spiders from the pavement to keep them from getting squashed; quiet, thoughtful Lena, with the sweetest lisp to break your heart. To break my heart: my wild, uncured, erratic, incomprehensible heart. I wonder whether her front teeth still overlap; whether she still confuses the words pretzel and pencil occasionally; whether the wispy brown hair grew straight and long, or began to curl.
I wonder whether she believes the lies they told her. #Quote by Lauren Oliver
Temper quotes by Halldor Laxness
#68. He disliked tears, he has always disliked tears, had never understood them, and sometimes lost his temper over them; but he felt now that he could not rebuke this flower of his life, this innocent form, water and youth are inseparable companions, and besides it's Christmas night. So he merely hinted again that she must have forgotten again that he had promised to build her a house. #Quote by Halldor Laxness
Temper quotes by Joseph Addison
#69. Good Nature, and Evenness of Temper, will give you an easie Companion for Life; Vertue and good Sense, an agreeable Friend; Love and Constancy, a good Wife or Husband. Where we meet one Person with all these Accomplishments, we find an Hundred without any one of them. #Quote by Joseph Addison
Temper quotes by Dalai Lama
#70. Anger is the ultimate troublemaker. I feel you can express a strong disapproval or dislike of an object without losing your temper. #Quote by Dalai Lama
Temper quotes by Sarah Dessen
#71. What the hell," I said, pushing off the wall, ready to take off the head of whatever stupid salesperson had decided to get cozy with me. My elbow was still buzzing, and I could feel a hot flush creeping up my neck: bad signs. I knew my temper.
I turned my head and saw it wasn't a salesman at all. It was a guy with black curly hair, around my age, wearing a bright orange T-shirt. And for some reason he was smiling.
"Hey there," he said cheerfully. "How's it going?"
"What is your problem?" I snapped, rubbing my elbow.
"Problem?"
"You just slammed me into the wall, asshole."
He blinked. "Goodness," he said finally. "Such language."
I just looked at him. Wrong day, buddy, I thought. You caught me on the wrong day.
"The thing is," he said, as if we'd been discussing the weather or world politics, "I saw you out in the showroom. I was over by the tire display?"
I was sure I was glaring at him. But he kept talking.
"I just thought to myself, all of a sudden, that we had something in common. A natural chemistry, if you will. And I had a feeling that something big was going to happen. To both of us. That we were, in fact, meant to be together."
"You got all this," I said, clarifying, "at the tire display?"
"You didn't feel it?" he asked.
"No. I did, however, feel you slamming me into the wall," I said evenly.
"That," he said, lowering his voice and leaning closer to me, "was an accident. An oversight. Just an unfor #Quote by Sarah Dessen
Temper quotes by Laini Taylor
#72. The story goes like this," he said. "We were having dinner together, you and I. As we do from time to time. It was grimgrouse. Over-spiced. You killed the cook for that. Temper." He added, as an instructive side, "You know, in a story, it's the details like that that make it seem real. Anyway, you for a bone stuck in your mustache. Did I mention you has a mustache? #Quote by Laini Taylor
Temper quotes by Anna Godbersen
#73. Before her angry impulses got the better of her, she admonished herself that she was born to win and that one did not win by throwing temper tantrums--at least not outside of one's own home, which could result in vicious, spurious rumors. #Quote by Anna Godbersen
Temper quotes by Jaimey Grant
#74. He found her unwillingness to quake in the face of his temper oddly intriguing. It was no reason to think he loved the witch, but it was curious. And that made him want to know her better. #Quote by Jaimey Grant
Temper quotes by Sean O'Casey
#75. It's my rule never to lose me temper till it would be detrimental to keep it. #Quote by Sean O'Casey
Temper quotes by Paul Gauguin
#76. Proficiency in art is a contract with your self and the empowerment of your self. Not all of us demand or even desire proficiency, but for those who do it's necessary to temper the influence of groups. And while some artists think history is bunk, the historical evidence is overwhelming: "In my isolation I grow stronger." #Quote by Paul Gauguin
Temper quotes by Albert Gubay
#77. Stupid people do make me lose my temper and most people are stupid, fortunately for me. It's made it easier for me to make a living. #Quote by Albert Gubay
Temper quotes by Nirmala Srivastava
#78. Let somebody insult you and see that that you do not answer back. Just see it, not to get into temper. Try that your ego doesn't react. That can be achieved very easily if you try in the mirror, look at yourself and laugh at yourself, make fun of yourself. #Quote by Nirmala Srivastava
Temper quotes by Rosamund Hodge
#79. The crash sliced through my head; it left me gasping and shivering, like all the other times I let my temper out, but the voices stopped. #Quote by Rosamund Hodge
Temper quotes by David Lloyd George
#80. Of all the bigotries that savage the human temper there is none so stupid as the anti-Semitic. #Quote by David Lloyd George
Temper quotes by Kristin Cashore
#81. She hadn't expected to have such an immediate opportunity to practice containing her temper. #Quote by Kristin Cashore
Temper quotes by L.M. Montgomery
#82. Ilse lost her temper at once and went into a true Burnley tantrum. She was very fluent in her rages and the volley of abusive "dictionary words" which she hurled at Emily would have staggered most of the Blair Water Girls. But Emily was too much at home with words to be floored so easily; she grew angry too, but in a cool, dignified, Murray way which was more exasperating than violence. #Quote by L.M. Montgomery
Temper quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#83. Exaggeration is truth that has lost its temper. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Temper quotes by Rainbow Rowell
#84. Well," she said. "I'm frustrated."
"Don't make me angry-kiss you."
"Give me the laundry."
"Tempers rising, faces flushed ... This is how it happens. #Quote by Rainbow Rowell
Temper quotes by Jack Black
#85. There were times when I thought I got a bit more punishment than was coming to me, but I don't regret a minute of it now. Each of us must be tempered in some fire. Nobody had more to do with choosing the fire that tempered me than myself, and instead of finding fault with the fire I give thanks that I had the metal to take the temper and hold it. #Quote by Jack Black
Temper quotes by Karen Hawkins
#86. I am quite out of patience with him." Fiona Kincaid set her teacup on the small tray with a decided click. "Dougal's been in a horrid temper since he arrived."
"I like him better this way," Fiona's handsome husband retorted. "He barely said a word over breakfast."
She gave an exasperated sigh. "I'm surprised you two don't get along better, as you're very similar." Jack's flat stare made her add hastily, "In some things."
"In very few things. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Temper quotes by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
#87. Of all thieves, fools are the worst; they rob you of time and temper. #Quote by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
Temper quotes by Rob Temple
#88. Switching from 'kind regards' to 'regards' as a warning that you're dangerously close to losing your temper. #Quote by Rob Temple
Temper quotes by Mark Twain
#89. It takes me a long time to lose my temper, but once lost I could not find it with a dog. #Quote by Mark Twain
Temper quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#90. A quick temper, sharp tongue, and restless spirit were always getting her into scrapes, and her life was a series of ups and downs, which were both comic and pathetic. #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Temper quotes by Marie Coulson
#91. I will never be through with you, ever. I don't know what I have to do to get you to realize that you're my
everything. I exist to love you, you're my meaning of life, my reason to be, you were made for me and I was made to make you mine. What we have
is too important to me to just throw away because of a picture and an incorrect quote. But you have got to have some faith in me Layla. I would
never hurt you, you have to know that. I may get angry, lose my temper and storm away but I will always calm down and I will always come back. I
could never leave you behind. I'd be lost without you. #Quote by Marie Coulson
Temper quotes by Patrick Rothfuss
#92. He beat you. And as I spoke the words I felt a terrible anger come together inside me. It wasn't hot and furious, as some of my flashes of temper tend to be. This was different, slow and cold. #Quote by Patrick Rothfuss
Temper quotes by Joyce Rachelle
#93. No sound is more ominous than the silence of a patient man. #Quote by Joyce Rachelle
Temper quotes by Kiera Cass
#94. I love your hair!" Marlee gushed. "I wish I'd been born with red hair. It makes you look so alive. I hear that people with red hair have bed tempers. Is that true?
Despite my rotten day, Marlee's manner was so vivacious that my smile grew wider. "I don't think so. I mean, I can have a bad temper at times, but my sister is a redhead, and she's as sweet as can be. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Temper quotes by Edmund Burke
#95. It is generally, in the season of prosperity that men discover their real temper, principles and design. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Temper quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#96. Och, and there's your Scots blood, lass," he said with a faint smile. "A fine bit o' temper too. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning
Temper quotes by Grenville Kleiser
#97. Discreetly keep most of your radical opinions to yourself. When with people be a listener a large part of the time. Be considerate in every word and act, and resist the tendency to say clever things. The best evidence of your culture is the tone and temper of your conversation. #Quote by Grenville Kleiser
Temper quotes by Kathy Reichs
#98. Shelton pushed Ben lightly. "Remember when you couldn't flare without losing your temper? So Hi kicked you from behind to get you mad, and you threw him in the ocean?"
Ben snorted. "He deserved it."
"I was providing a service," Hi protested. "I recall Tory once trying to eat a mouse."
I pinched my nose. "Ugh, don't remind me."
Ella giggled. "One time Cole lost his flare while carrying a boulder. It pinned his leg for an hour."
Then everyone had a story. Our funeral became a wake.
The mood lifted as we swapped flare stories. It was cathartic. A way to say good-bye.
I caught Ben smiling at me. "I remember when Tory sniffed that mound of bird crap in the old lighthouse. I thought she'd vomit on the spot."
Chance laughed. "I knew she was too clever. Always with a trick up her sleeve."
The boys glanced at each other. Their smiles faded.
Something passed between them.
Abruptly, both looked at me.
I could see a question in their eyes. A resolve to see something through.
They talked. Oh God, they talked about me.
They're going to make me choose.
In a flash of dread, I realized I could delay this no longer.
With another jolt, I realized I didn't need to.
There was no point putting it off.
There was also no decision to make.
My eyes met a dark, intense pair staring back earnestly. Longingly. Fearfully.
I smiled. Even as my heart pounded.
Before anyone spoke, I stepped forward, leg #Quote by Kathy Reichs
Temper quotes by Janet Lansbury
#99. It's always hardest to remember to acknowledge a child in the heat of a difficult moment, but if a child can hear anything during a temper tantrum, it reassures him to hear our recognition of his point-of-view. "You wanted an ice cream cone and I said 'no'. It's upsetting not to get what you want." When a toddler feels understood, he senses the empathy behind our limits and corrections. He still resists, cries, and complains, but at the end of the day, he knows we are with him, always in his corner. These first years will define our relationship for many years to come. #Quote by Janet Lansbury
Temper quotes by Annette Marie
#100. They came to the door of the ladies' club and Ash reached for the handle. Before he could touch it, the door flew open and Lyre fell out, still dressed in the white waiter "uniform" and his arms full of his clothes and weapons. Shouts burst from the building's interior.



"There you are!" Lyre blurted, wild-eyed. "Time to go."



"What happened?" Ash barked.



Clio was still gawking when Lyre launched down the alley, leaving her and Ash to rush after him.



"Some women react poorly to rejection," Lyre explained breathlessly. "Especially when they've paid a lot of money to not be rejected."



"You blew your cover by rejecting her?" Ash snapped.



They fled down several alleys before Lyre skidded to a stop and whirled on Ash, still clutching his belongings.



"I'll dress up in stupid costumes," the incubus snarled with unexpected temper, "and I'll pretend to be a paid whore, and I'll even let a crucial informant pinch and paw at me." He thrust an accusatory finger at Ash. "But I will not allow that nasty old hag's tongue anywhere near me, not even to save the damn world!"



Ash blinked.



Scowling blackly, Lyre shoved his armload at Ash, then pulled a dagger from the pile and cut his leather-strap top off. "Next time, you can do the nasty stuff and I'll kill people. #Quote by Annette Marie
Temper quotes by Kristi Coulter
#101. Yes, he had a temper that left at least one hole in our walls before he went to therapy and got a handle on it. But he treated me like a superhero princess and was also warm, responsible, hilarious, and kind to children and animals. #Quote by Kristi Coulter
Temper quotes by C.N. Crawford
#102. Quit making my living room cold," shouted Elise. "What's the matter with you? Fool. That's what happens when you spend too much time celibate. Lose your temper over every damn thing, drive up everyone's heating bill with the cold air from your magic. No one wants to pay for that. No wonder you're still single. #Quote by C.N. Crawford
Temper quotes by John Witherspoon
#103. Men are not generally sufficiently aware of the distinction between the law of God and his purpose; they are apt to suppose, that as the temper of the sinner is contrary to the one, so the outrages of the sinner are able to defeat the other; than which nothing can be more false. #Quote by John Witherspoon
Temper quotes by Siobhan Davis
#104. I'm following hot on her heels, smarting from her latest rebuttal, and I can't contain my temper as the flood of rejection washes over me, tossing me precariously close to the edge. #Quote by Siobhan Davis
Temper quotes by Laurence Sterne
#105. God tempers the wind to the shorn lamb. #Quote by Laurence Sterne
Temper quotes by Vladimir Nabokov
#106. While endowed with the morose temper of genius, he [Lakes, Arts Professor] lacked originality and was aware of that lack; his own paintings always seemed beautifully clever imitations, although one could never quite tell whose manner he mimicked. His profound knowledge of innumerable techniques, his indifference to 'schools' and 'trends', his detestation of quacks, his conviction that there was no difference whatever between a genteel aquarelle of yesterday and, say, conventional neoplasticism or banal non-objectivism of today, and that nothing but individual talent mattered--these views made of him an unusual teacher. St Bart's was not particularly pleased either with Lake's methods or with their results, but kept him on because it was fashionable to have at least one distinguished freak on the staff. Among the many exhilarating things Lake taught was that the order of the solar spectrum is not a closed
circle but a spiral of tints from cadmium red and oranges through a strontian yellow and a pale paradisal green to cobalt blues and violets, at which point the sequence does not grade into red again but passes into another spiral, which starts with a kind of lavender grey and goes on to Cinderella shades transcending human perception. He taught that there is no such thing as the Ashcan School or the Cache Cache School or the Cancan School. That the work of art created with string, stamps, a Leftist newspaper, and the droppings of doves is based on a series of dreary plat #Quote by Vladimir Nabokov
Temper quotes by Mariana Zapata
#107. I'd never been a big fan of that saying, "Everything happens for a reason," but maybe, sometimes, every once in a while, things coalesced into a complex, intangible reason. With tattoos and piercings and bad words and unfailing loyalty topped with a temper. And in its own imperfect way, it couldn't have been any better. #Quote by Mariana Zapata
Temper quotes by Chester Bowles
#108. WHEN YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT, YOU CAN AFFORD TO KEEP YOUR TEMPER; AND WHEN YOU ARE IN THE WRONG, YOU CANNOT AFFORD TO LOSE IT. #Quote by Chester Bowles
Temper quotes by Vic James
#109. As for Jenner himself? Well, he was a dream. He was sweet and funny, hardworking and thoughtful. An itemization of all the ways in which he was generally wonderful would be even longer than Abi's to-do list. Gavar was probably the type most girls would go for, but his temper meant his buff physique was more intimidating than appealing. And the Young Master was simply too spooky even to think of in those terms. So, yes, Jenner was the only one of the three she didn't find scary. By itself this wasn't a ringing endorsement. But add in all the plus points as well, and Miss Abigail Amanda Hadley had quite a crush going on. #Quote by Vic James
Temper quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#110. Marks," he said, his voice uneven, "you are not a perfect woman."
'I'm aware of that," she said.
"You have an evil temper, you're as blind as a mole, you're a deplorable poet, and frankly, your French accent could use some work." Supporting himself on his elbows, Leo took her face in his hands. "But when I put those things together with the rest of you, it makes you into the most perfectly imperfect woman I've ever known."
Absurdly pleased, she smiled up into his face.
"You are beautiful beyond words," Leo went on. "You are kind, amusing, and passionate. You also have a keen intellect, but I'm willing to overlook that. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas

#113. Temper us in fire, and we grow stronger. When we suffer, we survive. #Quote by Cassandra Clare
Temper quotes by Betty Smith
#114. But he refused to answer when addressed in English and forbade the speaking of English in his home. His daughters understood very little German. (Their mother insisted that the girls speak only English in the home. She reasoned that the less they understood German, the less they would find out about the cruelty of their father.) Consequently, the four daughters grew up having little communion with their father. He never spoke to them except to curse them. His Gott verdammte came to be regarded as hello and good-bye. When very angry, he'd call the object of his temper, Du Russe! This he considered his most obscene expletive. He hated Austria. He hated America. Most of all he hated Russia. He had never been to that country and had never laid eyes on a Russian. No one understood his hatred of that dimly known country and its vaguely known people. This was the man who was Francie's maternal grandfather. She hated him the way his daughters hated him. * #Quote by Betty Smith
Temper quotes by Ruth Reichl
#115. I know you're a chocolate lover. I can always tell. I'm about to temper the chocolate. I have my own method; want to watch?"
"Could I?" Inside my head, a little voice was reminding me that I had to get back to the office, but it was drowned out by the scent of chocolate, which flooded all my senses with a heady froth of cocoa and coffee, passion fruit, cinnamon and clove. I closed my eyes, and for one moment I was back in Aunt Melba's kitchen with Genie.
I opened them to find Kim dancing with a molten river of chocolate. I stood hypnotized by the scent and the grace of her motions, which were more beautiful than any ballet. Moving constantly, she caressed the chocolate like a lover, folding it over and over on a slab of white marble, working it to get the texture right. She stopped to feed me a chocolate sprinkled with salt, which had the fierce flavor of the ocean, and another with the resonant intensity of toasted saffron. One chocolate tasted like rain, another of the desert. I tried tracking the flavors, pulling them apart to see how she had done it, but, like a magician, she had hidden her tricks. Each time I followed the trail, it vanished, and after a while I just gave up and allowed the flavors to seduce me.
Now the scent changed as Kim began to dip fruit into the chocolate: raspberries, blackberries, tiny strawberries that smelled like violets. She put a chocolate-and-caramel-covered slice of peach into my mouth, and the taste of summer was so intense #Quote by Ruth Reichl
Temper quotes by Greg Bryk
#116. I grew up with a very quick temper, and the language of violence is a language that I'm very familiar and comfortable with. #Quote by Greg Bryk
Temper quotes by Edward Gibbon
#117. If we contrast the rapid progress of this mischievous discovery [of gunpowder] with the slow and laborious advances of reason, science, and the arts of peace, a philosopher, according to his temper, will laugh or weep at the folly of mankind (Chapter 65,p. 68) #Quote by Edward Gibbon
Temper quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#118. Ah well, Liang was her husband and she would never have another. Even had she been young and beautiful she would not have run from man to man as women did nowadays. But she was neither young nor beautiful and she was grateful for Liang. It was honorable to be his wife, and if he had a peevish temper at home, he might have been worse. He had never beaten her, and she had learned, after all these years, how to torture him. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Temper quotes by Charles Dickens
#119. I was only going to say," said Scrooge's nephew, "that the consequence of his taking a dislike to us, and not making merry with us, is, as I think, that he loses some pleasant moments, which could do him no harm. I am sure he loses pleasanter companions than he can find in his own thoughts, either in his mouldy old office or his dusty chambers. I mean to give him the same chance every year, whether he likes it or not, for I pity him. He may rail at Christmas till he dies, but he can't help thinking better of it - I defy him - if he finds me going there in good temper, year after year, and saying, 'Uncle Scrooge, how are you?' If it only puts him in the vein to leave his poor clerk fifty pounds, that's something. #Quote by Charles Dickens
Temper quotes by Joyce Meyer
#120. You can control yourself if you really want to. I'll tell you how I know you can control yourself. If you were in a full fledged emotional temper tantrum in your house and I knocked on your front door ... Come on! Let me tell you what, you would get control of yourself, and it would only take a few seconds. #Quote by Joyce Meyer
Temper quotes by John Quincy Adams
#121. It is essential..that you should form and adopt certain rules or principles, for the government of your own conduct and temper. Unless you have such rules and principles, there will be numberless occasions on which you will have no guide for your government but your passions..It is in the Bible, you must learn them, and from the Bible how to practice them. #Quote by John Quincy Adams
Temper quotes by Beth Daniel
#122. I keep telling myself I don't practice enough to be a perfectionist. And I don't practice enough to get mad. So my temper has subdued and my attitude is subdued. #Quote by Beth Daniel
Temper quotes by David McCullough
#123. A man who has not better government of his tongue, no more command of his temper, is unfit for everything but children's play and the company of boys. #Quote by David McCullough

Temper quotes by Fortesa Latifi
#125. when she was 7, a boy pushed her on the playground
she fell headfirst into the dirt and came up with a mouthful of gravel and lines of blood chasing each other down her legs
when she told her teacher what happened, she laughed and said 'boys will be boys honey don't let it bother you
he probably just thinks you're cute'
but the thing is,
when you tell a little girl who has rocks in her teeth and scabs on her knees that hurt and attention are the same
you teach her that boys show their affection through aggression
and she grows into a young woman who constantly mistakes the two
because no one ever taught her the difference
'boys will be boys'
turns into
'that's how he shows his love'
and bruises start to feel like the imprint of lips
she goes to school with a busted mouth in high school and says she was hit with a basketball instead of his fist
the one adult she tells scolds her
'you know he loses his temper easily
why the hell did you have to provoke him?'
so she shrinks
folds into herself, flinches every time a man raises his voice
by the time she's 16 she's learned her job well
be quiet, be soft, be easy
don't give him a reason
but for all her efforts, he still finds one
'boys will be boys' rings in her head
'boys will be boys
he doesn't mean it
he can't help it'
she's 7 years old on the playground again
with a mouth full of rocks and b #Quote by Fortesa Latifi
Temper quotes by Diana Gabaldon
#126. Are ye all right, man? Ian asked, in the same tone of mild concern he'd heard his da use now and then on his mam or Uncle Jamie. Evidently it was in fact the right tone to take with a Fraser about to go berserk, for William breathed like a grampus for a moment or two, then got himself under control. #Quote by Diana Gabaldon
Temper quotes by Marcus Tullius Cicero

Temper quotes by Mila Gray
#129. But it's not Kit's physique that I'm talking about. It's the way he is, the confidence he has that is beyond his years. He speaks softly-I've never seen him lose his temper or shout-and when he walks into a room, It's like he's a magnet and everything, including the air, is drawn to him. Although I know he can strip an automatic weapon in under ten seconds and is trained to lea d men in battle, I've also seen him siniging lullabies to his baby nieces while he cradles them in his arms, and jump off a pier to save a drowning dog. #Quote by Mila Gray
Temper quotes by John Owen
#130. So great an advantage is given to sin and Satan by your temper and disposition, that without extraordinary watchfulness, care, and diligence, they will prevail against your soul. #Quote by John Owen
Temper quotes by William Wordsworth

Temper quotes by Lisa Kleypas

Temper quotes by Mariana Zapata
#133. What would I gain from telling you the first moment I realized you were meant to be mine? Nothing. You're supposed to protect what you love, Sal. You taught me that. I didn't wake up one day and know I didn't want to live without your horrible temper. I saw so much of me in you at first, but you aren't like me at all. You're you, and I will go to my grave before I let anyone change any part of you. I know that without a doubt in my mind. This," he pointed between us. "This is what matters. #Quote by Mariana Zapata

Temper quotes by Denis O'Hare
#136. Probably I have more phobias, fear and eccentricities than I would care to admit. I don't think I'm in danger of losing my mind, but I do often question my own behavior. I have a very bad temper, and it's not always healthy for me and for others. I make my way in the world more difficult, and I could do with a little more yoga. #Quote by Denis O'Hare
Temper quotes by Katie Kacvinsky
#137. But I'm learning it's human nature to want the things you can't have. What changes is how you go about pursuing the things you want. When you're a little kid and you're told no, you scream and throw a temper tantrum. When you're a teenager and your parents tell you no, you're old enough to internalize your temper tantrum. But you're smarter and you're sneakier this time around. So you nod and act like you care when they say no, when they tell you who you can be friends with, when they say the know what's best.
But then you go behind their backs to do it anyway.
Because at some point, you need to start calling the shots. At some point, you need to start believing you know whats best. Or, I thought with a smile, you just stop asking for their permission in the first place. #Quote by Katie Kacvinsky
Temper quotes by Lord Chesterfield
#138. A man who cannot command his temper should not think of being a man in business. #Quote by Lord Chesterfield

Temper quotes by Kate Langley Bosher
#140. We have to wear clothes, a requirement of custom, but more time, temper, character, and peace of mind, not to mention money, have been sacrificed to them than to any other altar on this green earth, and for what? #Quote by Kate Langley Bosher
Temper quotes by Emily Bronte
#141. Linton did not appear to remember what she talked of and he had evidently great difficulty in sustaining any kind of conversation. His lack of interest in the subjects she started, and his equal incapacity to contribute to her entertainment, were so obvious that she could not conceal her disappointment. An indefinite alteration had come over his whole person and manner. The pettishness that might be caressed into fondness, had yielded to a listless apathy; there was less of the peevish temper of a child which frets and teases on purpose to be soothed, and more of the self-absorbed moroseness of a confirmed invalid, repelling consolation, and ready to regard the good-humoured mirth of others as an insult. Catherine perceived, as well as I did, that he held it rather a punishment, than a gratification, to endure our company. #Quote by Emily Bronte
Temper quotes by J.D. Jordan
#142. I tell you, mister, if there's anything good about being a hot-tempered bitch, it's knowing right well what buttons to push in others seeing as they're the same ones what get your own back up. #Quote by J.D. Jordan
Temper quotes by Gabor Mate
#143. As we mature, our brain develops the ability to mix things together, to hold different perceptions, senses, thoughts, feelings, and impulses all at the same time without becoming confused in thinking or paralyzed in action. This is the capacity I called "integrative functioning". Reaching this point in development has a tremendous transforming and civilizing effect on personality and behavior. The attributes of childishness, like impulsiveness and ego-centrism, fade away and a much more balanced personality begins to emerge. One cannot teach the brain to do this; the integrative capacity must be developed, grown into. The ancient Romans had a word for this kind of mix: temper. That verb now means "to regulate" or "to moderate," but originally referred to the mingling of different ingredients to make clay. #Quote by Gabor Mate
Temper quotes by Francis Bacon
#144. Some men covet knowledge out of a natural curiosity and inquisitive temper; some to entertain the mind with variety and delight; some for ornament and reputation; some for victory and contention; many for lucre and a livelihood; and but few for employing the Divine gift of reason to the use and benefit of mankind. #Quote by Francis Bacon
Temper quotes by Isaac Watts

Temper quotes by L.R.W. Lee
#147. Imogenia's temper flared. "I was to become queen when you died, Father! He will pay," she snarled. "Honey," the king objected, "I'm not going to say I understand how you feel, but not forgiving someone hurts you, not the one you hate. #Quote by L.R.W. Lee

Temper quotes by Daniel Defoe
#150. I have since often observed, how incongruous and irrational the common temper of mankind is, especially of youth ... that they are not ashamed to sin, and yet are ashamed to repent; not ashamed of the action for which they ought justly to be esteemed fools, but are ashamed of the returning, which only can make them be esteemed wise men. #Quote by Daniel Defoe
Temper quotes by George MacDonald
#151. Like some of the rest of us, she never reflected how balefully her evil mood might operate; and that all things work for good in the end, will not cover those by whom come the offenses. Another night's rest, it is true, sent the evil mood to sleep again for a time, but did not exorcise it; for there are demons that go not out without prayer, and a bad temper is one of them--a demon as contemptible, mean-spirited, and unjust, as any in the peerage of hell--much petted, nevertheless, and excused, by us poor lunatics who are possessed by him. #Quote by George MacDonald
Temper quotes by Lewis Carroll

Temper quotes by Henry Fielding
#153. There are persons of that general philanthropy and easy tempers, which the world in contempt generally calls good-natured, who seem to be sent into the world with the same design with which men put little fish into a pike pond, in order only to be devoured by that voracious water-hero. #Quote by Henry Fielding
Temper quotes by Thomas Traherne
#154. Strange is the vigour in a brave man's soul. The strength of his spirit and his irresistible power, the greatness of his heart and the height of his condition, his mighty confidence and contempt of danger, his true security and repose in himself, his liberty to dare and do what he pleaseth, his alacrity in the midst of fears, his invincible temper, are advantages which make him master of fortune. #Quote by Thomas Traherne
Temper quotes by Seanan McGuire
#155. There was a moment of silence before Istas said, "I was unaware the telepathic girl possessed a temper. This is pleasing. Temperamental people are more likely to participate in carnage."

#156. As children, women are encouraged to be "little ladies." Little ladies don't scream as vociferously as little boys, and they are chastised more severely for throwing tantrums or showing temper: "high spirits" are expected and therefore tolerated in little boys; docility and resignation are the corresponding traits expected of little girls. Now, we tend to excuse a show of temper by a man where we would not excuse an identical tirade from a woman: women are allowed to fuss and complain, but only a man can bellow in rage. #Quote by Robin Lakoff
Temper quotes by Edmund Burke
#157. To give freedom is still more easy. It is not necessary to guide; it only requires to let go the rein. But to form a free government; that is, to temper together these opposite elements of liberty and restraint in one work, requires much thought, deep reflection, a sagacious, powerful, and combining mind. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Temper quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#158. You're the only person who doesn't see the advantage in such a match."
"That's because I don't believe in marriages of convenience. Given your family's history, I'd think that you wouldn't either."
She colored. "And why do assume it would be such a thing? Is it so hard to believe that a man might genuinely care for me? That he might actually want to marry me for myself?"
"Why would anyone wish to marry the reckless Lady Celia, after all," she went on in a choked voice, "if not for her fortune or to shore up his reputation?"
"I didn't mean any such thing," he said sharply.
But she'd worked herself up into a fine temper. "Of course you did. You kissed me last night only to make a point, and you couldn't even bear to kiss me properly again today-"
"Now see here," he said, grabbing her shoulders. "I didn't kiss you 'properly' today because I was afraid if I did I might not stop."
That seemed to draw her up short. "Wh-What?"
Sweet God, he shouldn't have said that, but he couldn't let her go on thinking she was some sort of pariah around men. "I knew that if I got his close, and I put my mouth on yours…"
But now he was this close. And she was staring up at him with that mix of bewilderment and hurt pride, and he couldn't help himself. Not anymore.
He kissed her, to show her what she seemed blind to. That he wanted her. That even knowing it was wrong and could never work, he wanted to have her.
She tore her lips from his. "Mr. P #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Temper quotes by Pope John Paul II
#159. One of the most significant aspects of our current situation, it should be noted, is the "crisis of meaning." Perspectives on life and the world, often of a scientific temper, have so proliferated that we face an increasing fragmentation of knowledge. This makes the search for meaning difficult and often fruitless. Indeed, still more dramatically, in this maelstrom of data and facts in which we live and which seem to comprise the very fabric of life, many people wonder whether it still makes sense to ask about meaning. The array of theories which vie to give an answer, and the different ways of viewing and of interpreting the world of human life, serve only to aggravate this radical doubt, which can easily lead to skepticism, indifference or to various forms of nihilism. #Quote by Pope John Paul II
Temper quotes by Thomas Paine
#160. Never, I say, had a country so many openings to happiness as this ... Her cause was good. Her principles just and liberal. Her temper serene and firm ... The remembrance then of what is past, if it operates rightly must inspire her with the most laudable of an ambition, that of adding to the fair fame she began with. The world has seen her great adversity ... Let then, the world see that she can bear prosperity; and that her honest virtue in time of peace is equal to the bravest virtue in time of war. #Quote by Thomas Paine
Temper quotes by David Hume
#161. He is happy whose circumstances suit his temper, but he is more excellent who can suit his temper to his circumstance. #Quote by David Hume
Temper quotes by Doris Kearns Goodwin
#162. No man resolved to make the most of himself, can spare time for personal contention. Still less can he afford to take all the consequences, including the vitiating of his temper, and the loss of self-control. Yield larger things to which you can show no more than equal right; and yield lesser ones, though clearly your own. Better give your path to a dog, than be bitten by him in contesting for the right. Even killing the dog would not cure the bite." Frank #Quote by Doris Kearns Goodwin
Temper quotes by David Gemmell
#163. A man with wife and daughters has no place losing his temper. #Quote by David Gemmell
Temper quotes by George E. Sargent

Temper quotes by Karen Hawkins
#165. I've asked Sophia to stay for the night, and she has agreed."
Stay? In the same house he was staying in? It had been pure hell trying to sleep before, but now, knowing she was there, under the same roof, her lush body-"No." The word was torn from him.
Fiona's gaze narrowed. "Dougal, this is my house-"
"And mine," Jack added flatly.
Dougal sent him a cutting glare.
Fiona sniffed. "If I wish Miss MacFarlane to stay,she'll stay."
Sophia lifted her chin. "I'm sorry you're averse to my visit, but I've already accepted your sister's kind invitation.
Dougal's jaw clenched. If she stayed, he might not be able to let her go. Damn it all,this was not fair!
Outside, the gray sky began to darken again, a rumble of thunder sounding in the distance.
Sophia glanced out the window, her face paling yet more.
"Not again," Jack muttered. "We're going to float away."
"Dougal," his sister snapped, "watch your temper!"
"I am," he said through gritted teeth. #Quote by Karen Hawkins
Temper quotes by Arthur Lynch
#166. Life asks for a preparation as complete as we can afford; the great contest should be fought with spirit but with good temper always; we should never think the game lost while it is still going; and finally we should have the satisfaction of quitting the field able to say: I did my best. #Quote by Arthur Lynch
Temper quotes by Benjamin Alire Saenz
#167. I knew that even though he was way into mood-altering substances and he had this really bad temper that there was something really beautiful inside him. Just because no one else could see it didn't mean it wasn't there. #Quote by Benjamin Alire Saenz
Temper quotes by Ursula Vernon
#168. Temper is itself an obstacle. #Quote by Ursula Vernon
Temper quotes by Emery Lord
#169. Every once in a while, her temper flashes. It's like she's exhausted from beating down her demons. #Quote by Emery Lord
Temper quotes by Elizabeth Boyle
#170. She started to rise, for she feared Dash might become angry, lose his temper as he had before with Finn, but this Dash, this man who was struggling to find his footing, planted his feet solidly on the deck.
"She married someone else, Finn," he said quietly. "There was no battle to fight once she'd done that. I'd lost, and sometimes when you lose, there is nothing you can do but move on."
Finn sighed and shook his head, the arguments and problems of adults far beyond his ken, but he still persisted, struggling to understand. "Did you?"
"Did I what?"
"Move on? After you lost her?"
Again, Dash shook his head. "Nay, I didn't. Not at all."
"'Cause you loved her?"
Dash looked away. "Aye. Without her, I lost my course and sailed about the seas rather like the Dutchman. #Quote by Elizabeth Boyle
Temper quotes by Pliny The Elder
#171. As in our lives so also in our studies, it is most becoming and most wise, so to temper gravity with cheerfulness, that the former may not imbue our minds with melancholy, nor the latter degenerate into licentiousness. #Quote by Pliny The Elder
Temper quotes by Pierre-Augustin Caron De Beaumarchais
#172. COUNT. The fact is, when you start losing your temper, even the most tightly controlled imagination will run wild, just as it does in dreams. #Quote by Pierre-Augustin Caron De Beaumarchais
Temper quotes by Bertrand Russell
#173. Two things are to be remembered: that a man whose opinions and theories are worth studying may be presumed to have had some intelligence, but that no man is likely to have arrived at complete and final truth on any subject whatever. When an intelligent man expresses a view which seems to us obviously absurd, we should not attempt to prove that it is somehow true, but we should try to understand how it ever came toseemtrue. Thisexercise of historical and psychological imagination at once enlarges the scope of our thinking, and helps us to realize how foolish many of our own cherished prejudices will seem to an age which has a different temper of mind. #Quote by Bertrand Russell
Temper quotes by Dorothy Dunnett
#174. Among the loose animals, the Keeper's sick camel, a lady of brittle temper, had bobbed her tassels and sunk her yellow teeth three times into unguarded flesh; the dwarf ass brayed itself hoarse and the lion cubs, dear to Abernaci's heart, had shambled off, humping their fat, sandy rumps, to feast among the spilled milk in the wrecked kitchens. #Quote by Dorothy Dunnett
Temper quotes by John Cornyn
#175. I think that what people want is for government to function ... not through temper tantrums and saying we are not going to participate, we are not going to play ball. #Quote by John Cornyn
Temper quotes by Mohamed ElBaradei
#176. I lose my temper at home. I try to control my temper at work. Sometimes, if you are under a lot of pressure, you let off some steam, but I also try not to do that because it's unfair to my wife. #Quote by Mohamed ElBaradei
Temper quotes by Harvey Weinstein
#177. You know, for years I used to read about myself. They'd say, 'He has a temper' or 'He's a bully' or something like that, and it always bothered me. #Quote by Harvey Weinstein
Temper quotes by Lewis Carroll
#178. How is it you can all talk so nicely?' Alice said, hoping to get it into a better temper by a compliment. 'I've been in many gardens before, but none of the flowers could talk.' 'Put your hand down, and feel the ground,' said the Tiger-lily. 'Then you'll know why.' Alice did so. 'It's very hard,' she said, 'but I don't see what that has to do with it.' 'In most gardens,' the Tiger-lily said, 'they make the beds too soft - so that the flowers are always asleep.' This sounded a very good reason, and Alice was quite pleased to know it. 'I never thought of that before!' she said. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Temper quotes by Carl Sagan
#179. In the way that scepticism is sometimes applied to issues of public concern, there is a tendency to belittle, to condescend, to ignore the fact that, deluded or not, supporters of superstition and pseudoscience are human beings with real feelings, who, like the sceptics, are trying to figure out how the world works and what our role in it might be. Their motives are in many cases consonant with science. If their culture has not given them all the tools they need to pursue this great quest, let us temper our criticism with kindness. None of us comes fully equipped. #Quote by Carl Sagan
Temper quotes by Astley Cooper
#180. It is the surgeon's duty to tranquillize the temper, to beget cheerfulness, and to impart confidence of recovery. #Quote by Astley Cooper
Temper quotes by Voltaire
#181. A good cook is a certain slow poisoner, if you are not temperate. #Quote by Voltaire
Temper quotes by Joel Barlow
#182. The fine arts, both in those who cultivate and those only who admire them, open and expand the mind to great ideas. They inspire liberal feelings, create a harmony of temper, favorable to a sense of justice and a habit of moderation in our social intercourse. #Quote by Joel Barlow
Temper quotes by Susanna Kaysen
#183. Back then I didn't know that I­­or anyone­­could make a life out of boyfriends and literature. As far as I could see, life demanded skills I didn't have. The result was chronic emptiness and boredom. There were more pernicious results as well: self­loathing, alternating with "inappropriately intense anger with frequent displays of temper... #Quote by Susanna Kaysen
Temper quotes by Brandon Mull
#184. Your mind was seizing on something to try to make sense of the emotion. Can you see the power emotion has to distort our outlook? Makes u wonder, did you have a bad day, or did you make it a bad day? ... We can exert a lot of control over our emotions. But sometimes they run away with us. These bottled-up emotions hit you with a lot of force ... If you drink straight courage, you can beome reckless and foolhardy. For a good result, you have to temper the courage with a little fear, a little calm. Tanu, p109-110 #Quote by Brandon Mull
Temper quotes by C.S. Lewis
#185. I know all about the despair of overcoming chronic temptation. It is not serious, provided self-offended petulance, annoyance at breaking records, impatience, etc., don't get the upper hand. No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep picking ourselves up each time ... The only fatal thing is to lose one's temper and give up. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Temper quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#186. He let out a soft, lethal laugh that raked claws down her temper. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Temper quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#187. Grandma, please. It's okay. Dad's doing a great job. I give him kudos for at least being calm and rational, and not losing his temper with everyone around him who isn't in childbirth. And he has yet to start shooting lighting bolts at people. Poor Damien still has a burn scar." – Kat #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Temper quotes by Karen Marie Moning
#188. I was coming," I said irritably. Fingers handcuffed around my wrist, Barrons dragged me toward the stairs.
"What part of 'directly' didn't you understand?"
"Same part of 'play well with others' you never understand, O cantankerous one," I muttered.
He laughed, surprising me. I never know what's going to make him laugh. At the oddest moments, he seems to find humor in his own bad temper.
"I'd be a lot less cantankerous if you admitted you wanted to fuck me and we got down to it."
Lust ripped through me. Barrons said "fuck" and I was ready. "That's all it would take to put you in a good humor?"
"It'd go a long way."
"Are we having a conversation, Barrons? Where you actually express feelings?"
"If you want to call a hard dick feelings, Ms. Lane. #Quote by Karen Marie Moning

Temper quotes by Jennifer Echols
#190. Everett and his mom broke up with me,thank you very much."
"You shouldn't have made out with him in his mother's scrapbooking room," Liz said sagely.
"We're seventeen,"I snapped, "and Everett and I had been dating for two months when that happened.What were we supposed to do,eat dinner with his family and keep our hands on the table where everyone could see them?I mean, you and Davis are Mr. and Mrs. Polite Reserve, and even you were macking in the hot tub an hour ago." I picked up a pink fuzzy pillow that had fallen from he bed and threw it at Liz.
"You were?" Chloe gushed. "You what? Hello,I need the details of Liz and Davis."
"Hayden!" Liz squealed, ducking behind Chloe. "I'm not saying you shouldn't have made out with Everett.I'm saying you shouldn't have done it in his mother's scrapbooking room.Location, location,location.You might have disorganized her supplies.Some people are very particular about their chipboard getting mixed up with their cardstock."
I closed my eyes,inhaled through my nose,and felt my lungs fill with air. My blood spread the life-giving oxygen throughout my body.
"Watch out,"Chloe whispered to Liz. "She's doing yoga."
My eyes snapped open.So much for controlling my temper. "Why the hell didn't you tell me Nick's mother left before I went into the sauna with him?" I hollered at Chloe.
"We didn't know he was here!" Liz came to Chloe's defense. "And if we'd warned you about him before he got here," Chloe explain #Quote by Jennifer Echols

Temper quotes by Kim Harrison
#192. Her elf is going to do just that," he said, the red glow of the ever-after sun turning his hair auburn, almost as red as mine. "I did not work this hard at getting her to accept who she is to let you take your spoiled brat of a little-boy temper tantrum out on her. She stays on my side of the lines. #Quote by Kim Harrison
Temper quotes by Colleen Coble
#193. Is something wrong, Lieutenant North?" "Beware of Carrington," he said. "Mr. Carrington was very kind," she said. "He made no untoward remarks." "He's already got you lined up in his mind as his next wife. He's buried one already." Her breath came fast, and spots of color lodged in her cheeks. "What happened to his other wife?" Surely she wasn't interested! "She died in childbirth." "Recently?" He dropped his gaze. "No," he muttered, struggling to maintain his temper. "About ten years ago." "The poor man," she murmured. She removed her hand from John's arm. "But I'm not interested in becoming wife number two." "I'm relieved to hear it," he said. She tipped her head. "Are you? Why would that concern you?" "He's much too old for you," he said. She smiled, and her dimple appeared. "Surely he's not more than fifty." "As I said. An old man. #Quote by Colleen Coble
Temper quotes by Allana Kephart
#194. Stupid, infuriating, overgrown ass!" I hiss as I slam the back door behind me and stomp my foot for good measure. I'm home, I think to myself. I can finally throw a satisfying fit all by myself. Fuming, I stomp both of my feet on the kitchen floor again and again, picturing my cousin's face each time I bring my feet down. He is the most infuriating oaf on the face of the planet, and I want nothing more than to punch him. I'm still muttering to myself when I hear chuckling and jump in response.

Whirling around, I look up and find Flint standing by the coffee pot watching my display of temper and shaking his head. "I certainly hope you're not talking about me."

I scowl at him. "For once, no. You may be an infuriating ass, but I've never considered you stupid. Looks like sparking my temper isn't an exclusive ability of yours, after all. #Quote by Allana Kephart
Temper quotes by Rollo May
#195. What genuine painters do is to reveal the underlying psychological and spiritual conditions of their relationship to their world; thus in the works of a great painter we have a reflection of the emotional and spiritual condition of human beings in that period of history. If you wish to understand the psychological and spiritual temper of any historical period, you can do no better than to look long and searchingly at its art. For in the art the underlying spiritual meaning of the period is expressed directly in symbols. This is not because artists are didactic or set out to teach or to make propaganda; to the extend that they do, their power of expression is broken; their direct relations to the inarticulate, or, if you will, 'unconscious' levels of the culture is destroyed. They have the power to reveal the underlying meaning of any period precisely because the essence of art is the powerful and alive encounter between the artist and his or her world. (pg 52) #Quote by Rollo May
Temper quotes by Kristen Ashley
#196. Did you pay for the repairs on my Range Rover?" I asked him.
"Yeah."
"Why?"
"Why not?" he answered.
I felt my hold on my temper slip.
"Luke, it's my car."
"Ava, you're my woman."
I ignored the melty feeling that gave me too.
"So?"
"So you're my woman, I take care of you."
"Luke – "
"This isn't up for discussion."
"It sure as hell is!"
"I'm thinkin', as payback for the hickey, I want you in that pink teddy thing tonight."
Was he for real?
"Luke!"
"Later."

Temper quotes by Richelle Mead
#198. Other people spoke, and I tried to keep up with the translations. All the stories were about Dimitri's kindness and strength of character. Even when not out battling the undead, Dimitri had always been there to help those who needed it. Almost everyone could recall sometime that Dimitri had stepped up to help others, going out of his way to do what was right, even in situations that could put him at risk. That was no surprise to me. Dimitri always did the right thing.
And it was that attitude that had made me love him so much. I had a similar nature. I too rushed in when others needed me, sometimes when I shouldn't have. Others called me crazy for it, but Dimitri had understood. He'd always understood me, and part of what we'd worked on was how to temper that impulsive need to run into danger with reason and calculation. I had a feeling no one else in this world would ever understand me like he did. #Quote by Richelle Mead
Temper quotes by Benjamin Disraeli
#199. A man's fate is his own temper; and according to that will be his opinion as to the particular manner in which the course of events is regulated. A consistent man believes in destiny, a capricious man in chance. #Quote by Benjamin Disraeli
Temper quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#200. All the work I have done, all that I have sacrificed these past ten years, has been in Orlon's name, to honor him and to save his kingdom - my kingdom. I do not plan to let a spoiled, arrogant child destroy that with her temper tantrums. Did you enjoy the riches of Rifthold these years, Princess? Was it very easy to forget us in the North when you were buying clothes and serving the monster who butchered your family and friends?" Men, #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
