He who angers you conquers you.  ~Elizabeth Kenny


For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.  ~Author Unknown




Overcome anger by love;

Overcome wrong by good

Overcome the miserly by generosity,

And the liar by truth.


Speak the truth;

Do not yield to anger

give even if asked for a little.

These three steps lead you to the god from being a stranger


Anger is red danger,

But a familiar stranger.

It came as no surprise,

At the times I have paid the price.

More than the usual thrice,

Before becoming very wise.

Anger is unreasonable,

Anger is invincible.

Anger is uncontrollable,

But still very reversible.


I would not die like Socrates,

For all the fuss of Plato;

Nor would I with Leonidas,

Nor yet would I with Cato.
