Dancing with your demons empowers you, and surely enables you to reclaim your lost powers. It takes tremendous courage to face your demons, invite them to tea, dance with them, reach an impasse, and finally, conquer them for ever. That's exactly what Buddha did, after realizing that fighting his demons off was getting nowhever, while seeking Enlightenment under Bodhi tree. You must develop gut to face your demons, such as anger, fear, greed, guilt, jealousy, lack of self-esteem, undue pride, and anything that is stopping you from reaching Enlightenment. You must bravely enter the territory that many fear to tread. Dance with your demons, and by God's grace you will succeed.

Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Holding on to anger, resentment and hurt only gives you tense muscles, a headache and a sore jaw from clenching your teeth. Forgiveness gives you back the laughter and the lightness in your life.

Joan Lunden

My thinking had been opened up wide in Mecca. I wrote long letters to my friends, in which I tried to convey to them my new insights into the American black man's struggle and his problems as well as the depths of my search for truth and justice. “I've had enough of someone else's propaganda,” I had written to these friends. “I am for truth, no matter who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am a human being first and foremost, and as such I'm for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.” The American white man's press called me the angriest Negro in America. I wouldn't deny that charge; I spoke exactly as I felt. I believe in anger. I believe it is a crime for anyone who is being brutalized to continue to accept that brutality without doing something to defend himself. I am for violence if non-violence means that we continue postponing or even delaying a solution to the American black man's problem. White man hates to hear anybody, especially a black man, talk about the crime that the white man perpetrated on the black man. But let me remind you that when the white man came into this country, he certainly wasn't demonstrating non-violence.

malcolm X, Autobiography of malcolm x

The greatest remedy for anger is delay.

Lucius Annaeus Seneca

There was never an angry man that thought his anger unjust.

Saint Francis de Sales

Vicious minds abound with anger and revenge are incapable of feeling the pleasure of forgiving their enemies.

Philip Dormer Stanhope Chesterfield

Whatever is begun in anger ends in shame.

Benjamin Franklin

American leaders created a system that allowed a free distribution of wealth and power. People leave their economic class and become richer regardless of their ethnic or national background. Therefore, despite having more diverse people in our society than any other nation, we have more stable national politics. If our elites try to limit the openness of the socioeconomic system, the system will be corrected in any number of forms including civic unrest. When Bush's administration invaded Iraq and bailed out Wall Street, the people brought in Obama. When Obama bailed out Wall Street again and considered raising the tax on the people, the system brought the Tea Party into power and the ruling party lost control of the Congress. People expressed their anger via peaceful elections.

Med Jones

Character isn't inherited. One builds it daily by the way one thinks and acts, thought by thought, action by action. If one lets fear or hate or anger take possession of the mind, they become self-forged chains.

Helen Gahagan Douglas

I have rubbed, knocked and brushed up against a thousand windows, trying to get an image.""A writer is nothing without a reader; a reader is nothing without a writer." "Ask not the grass to give you green, and later walk all over it.”“Thoughts are like an open ocean, they can either move you forward within its waves, or sink you under deep into its abyss.” Anger can kill, even a feather gently blowing in the wind.” "The mirror will only lie, when you look at it through a mask."If you put a clock in a bottle, with time it will crack, as like money, as like love, as like a beautiful mind, with no soul." “If eyes are windows to the soul, then tears are heavens rain.”"It's not how many friends you can count, it's how many of those you can count on.”

Anthony Liccione

The great lawyer who employs his talent and his learning in the highly emunerative task of enabling a very wealthy client to override or circumvent the law is doing all that in him lies to encourage the growth in the country of a spirit of dumb anger against all laws and of disbelief in their efficacy.

Theodore Roosevelt

Anger is never without a reason but seldom a good one.

When anger rises, think of the consequences.

Confucius

Anger is a momentary madness, so control your passion or it will control you.

G. M. Trevelyan

It is wise to direct your anger towards problems -- not people; to focus your energies on answers -- not excuses.

William Arthur Ward

A dramatic experience concerned with the mundane may inform but it cannot release; and one concerned essentially with the aesthetic politics of its creators may divert or anger, but it cannot enlighten.

David Mamet

A man is measured by the size of things that anger him.

Geof Greenleaf

A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.

All who consult on doubtful matters, should be void of hatred, friendship, anger, and pity.
