Some Thoughts On Anger From Various Authors

“The longer I live, the more I observe that carrying around anger is the most debilitating to the person who bears it.”

Katharine Graham

“Holding anger is a poison…It eats you from inside…We think that by hating someone we hurt them…But hatred is a curved blade…and the harm we do to others…we also do to ourselves.”

Mitch Albom

“Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.”

Maya Angelou

“It is wise to direct your anger towards problems — not people; to focus your energies on answers — not excuses.”

William Arthur Ward

“Keep in mind, hurting people often hurt other people as a result of their own pain. If somebody is rude and inconsiderate, you can almost be certain that they have some unresolved issues inside. They have some major problems, anger, resentment, or some heartache they are trying to cope with or overcome. The last thing they need is for you to make matters worse by responding angrily.”

Joel Osteen
