65 Angry Quotes

Angry quotes are important because they tell us clearly that anger can only serve to harm you or another person; anger never solves or resolves a problem, issue or concern. To make anger a companion is to erode the nature of love, that of understanding and mechanisms of compromise. To be within the destructive forces of anger means a life that is full of bitterness, and negativity with nothing to show that is worthy or good.

We hope these quotes on being angry, encourage you to think seriously about your actions and behaviors.
