A quick-tempered man does foolish things.
                      —Proverbs 14:17

If people need to wear a crash helmet in our presence, it’s time for serious soul-searching.

A fool gives full vent to anger, but a wise person quietly holds it back (Prv 29:11 NLT).

Anger resides in the lap of fools (Eccl 7:9).

Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret—it leads only to evil (Ps 37:8).

Your anger does not produce God’s righteousness (Jas 1:20 NRSV).

Anger makes your mouth
work faster than your mind.
