Love is not easily angered…
– 1 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)
The Lord is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
– Psalm 103:8 (NLT)
Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be.
– Thomas a Kempis
Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.
– James 1:20 (NLT)
There is nothing that so much gratifies an ill tongue as when it finds an angry heart.
– Thomas Fuller
Fools vent their anger, but the wise quietly hold it back.
– Proverbs 29:11 (NLT)
Anger itself is not wrong. All emotions are created by God – It’s just that sin taints emotions. Sort of like fruit that goes bad. Worry is concern gone bad. Fury is anger gone bad.
– Jennifer Smith
Sensible people control their temper; they earn respect by overlooking wrongs.
– Proverbs 19:11 (NLT)
