Get mad, then get over it.
People who fly into a rage always make a bad landing.
Anger is one letter short of danger.
For every minute you are angry, you lose sixty seconds of happiness.
He who angers you, conquers you.
Life is too short to hold a grudge, also too long.
If a small thing has the power to make you angry, does that not indicate something about your size?
Sydney J. Harris
