Quotes on Anger

Anger is an extremely powerful emotion and one that is not easily controlled. This is most true when the anger is directed at you. An angry person who has lost control of their emotions causes pain and suffering and in their anger they feel justified. Sometimes they are even proud of themselves. I love the quotes below because they make me smile…even in the face of anger.
