Quotes about Anger

Napoleon's troops fought in bright fields, where every helmet caught some gleams of glory; but the British soldier conquered under the cool shade of aristocracy. No honours awaited his daring, no despatch gave his name to the applauses of his countrymen; his life of danger and hardship was uncheered by hope, his death unnoticed.

Sir William Francis Patrick Napier

He who hath bent him o'er the dead
Ere the first day of death is fled,--
The first dark day of nothingness,
The last of danger and distress,
Before decay's effacing fingers
Have swept the lines where beauty lingers.

George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron

Turns up more dangerous breakers than the Euxine.

George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron

What a strange thing is man! and what a stranger

'T is strange, but true; for truth is always strange,--
Stranger than fiction.

George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron

Oh pilot, 't is a fearful night!
There's danger on the deep.

Thomas Haynes Bayly

Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton

All your strength is in your union
All your danger is in discord;
Therefore be at peace henceforward,
And as brothers live together.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

If a little knowledge is dangerous, where is a man who has so much as to be out of danger?

Thomas Henry Huxley

There is a sumptuous variety about the New England weather that compels the stranger's admiration--and regret. The weather is always doing something there; always attending strictly to business; always getting up new designs and trying them on people to see how they will go. But it gets through more business in Spring than in any other season. In the Spring I have counted one hundred and thirty-six different kinds of weather inside of twenty-four hours.

Mark (Samuel Langhorne Clemens) Twain

Literature--the most seductive, the most deceiving, the most dangerous of professions.

John, Viscount Morley

? John Bartlett, compYou hail from Dream-land, Dragon-fly?
A stranger hither? So am I,
And (sooth to say) I wonder why
We either of us came!

Agnes MFRDarmesteter

Said I, in scorn all burning hot,
In rage and anger high,
"You ignominious idiot,
Those wings are made to fly!"

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

? John Bartlett, compThere was ease in Casey's manner as he stept into his place,
There was pride in Casey's bearing and a smile on Casey's face,
And when responding to the cheers he lightly doft his hat,
No stranger in the crowd could doubt, 't was Casey at the bat.

Ernest Lawrence Thayer

Cease, rude Boreas, blustering railer!
List, ye landsmen all, to me;
Messmates, hear a brother sailor
Sing the dangers of the sea.


Not she with trait'rous kiss her Saviour stung,
Not she denied him with unholy tongue;
She, while apostles shrank, could danger brave,
Last at his cross and earliest at his grave.

Publius Syrus

Anacharsis coming to Athens, knocked at Solon's door, and told him that he, being a stranger, was come to be his guest, and contract a friendship with him; and Solon replying, "It is better to make friends at home," Anacharsis replied, "Then you that are at home make friendship with me."


Using the proverb frequently in their mouths who enter upon dangerous and bold attempts, "The die is cast," he took the river.


Delay always breeds danger.

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra

If ignorance and passion are the foes of popular morality, it must be confessed that moral indifference is the malady of the cultivated classes. The modern separation of enlightenment and virtue, of thought and conscience, of the intellectual aristocracy from the honest and common crowd is the greatest danger that can threaten liberty.

Henri Frédéric Amiel

I have been a stranger in a strange land.

Old Testament

He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it.

Old Testament

The heart knoweth his own bitterness; and a stranger doth not intermeddle with his joy.

Old Testament

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.

Old Testament
