   has it.

   Anger and haste hinder good counsel.

   Anger manages everything badly. 

   Anger may glance into the breast of a wise man, but rests only 
   in the bosom of fools.

   the bosom of fools. 
                                                      Eccl. 7:9    

   Cease from anger and forsake wrath. 

                                         Psalms 37:8

                                                Prov 14:29

    For if you deliver him, yet you must do it again.

                                            Prov 19:19

    Is like a city broken down, without walls. 
                                      Prov 25:28

   Anger begins in folly and ends in repentence. 


   The fire you kindle for your enemy often burns yourself more 
   than him. 

                                     Chinese proverb

   When passion is on the throne, reason is out of doors. 

                                    M. Henry
