Anger Quotes

If you want to regret for the worst move you ever made, make that move in anger because whatever decisions taken when you are angry, will be wrong. Anger is a pure emotion and once you understand its nature, it won’t exist in you. It’s a wonderful emotion if you observe it. Once you get to know that you are angry, the anger will vanish slowly. Anger hits you badly when you are guided by your subconscious mind. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to violence, and violence leads to more violence. Once you start moving in the way of violence, it won’t end. So be aware of your anger when you are angry and you will be surprised to see it vanishing slowly. Read these quotes to taste the finest drops of wisdom on anger.
