For long, long time, I have struggled managing anger. Now I share some quotations which have helped me to manage it. This kind of considerations plus a good amount of psychoanalysis seem to beget a cure.

More often than not, anger is actually an indication of weakness rather than of strength.
—14th Dalai Lama

When reason ends, then anger begins. Therefore, anger is a sign of weakness.
—14th Dalai Lama

When you find yourself reacting with anger or opposition to any person or circumstance, realize that you are only struggling with yourself.
—Deepak Chopra (I don’t like the work of Mr. Chopra and even less the way he commercializes it, but his quotation regarding anger is quite accurate and has helped me from time to time).

Anger is nothing more than an outward expression of hurt, fear and frustration.
—Phil McGraw

Negative states of mind, such as anger, resentment, fear, envy, and jealousy, are products of the ego.
—Eckhart Tolle

Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
—Buddha

For every minute you are angry you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Anger is never without a reason, but seldom with a good one.
—Benjamin Franklin

There are two things a person should never be angry at, what they can help, and what they cannot.
—Plato

Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.
—Benjamin Franklin

Anger makes you smaller, while forgiveness forces you to grow beyond what you were.
—C.Carter-Scott

Anyone can become angry. That is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose and in the right way… that is not easy.
—Aristotle

No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy unless you let him.
—Napoleon Hill
