Anger can serve a useful purpose if it is justified and directed appropriately.

It's like a tornado that blows away all of your pleasure and replaces it with emotional poison. - Frank Lawlis

Anger is a choice, as well as a habit. It is a learned reaction to frustration, in which you behave in ways that you would rather not. In fact, severe anger is a form of insanity.

Unless and until we deal with our anger, there is no room in us for anything else. - G. Porter Taylor

Anger is generally seen as an unwelcome presence in our midst, however natural it may be.

They snatch any weapon within reach. If they cannot strike with things they will strike with words, often far more terrible in their effect. - John Daniel Barry
