Anger is the enemy of reason. Men do in the heat of passion what their reason, in a moment of objectivity, abhors. You are never in greater danger of living in regret than when you find anger beginning to take its awful hold on you.
— Walter Henrichsen
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires. (James 1:19-20, NIV)
Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end. (Proverbs 29:11, NIV)
Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil. (Psalm 37:8, NIV)
“In your anger do not sin”: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. … Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. (Ephesians 4: 26-27, 32, NIV)
