It is easy to fly into a passion—anybody can do that—but to be angry . . . in the right way—that is not easy. (Aristotle, 4th century B.C. Greek philosopher)

His more complete statement: “… to be angry with the right person to the right extent and at the right time and right object . . . that is not easy, and it is not everyone who can do it.” There is such a thing as righteous anger, but many people struggle with how and when to express it properly. That requires character, integrity, and inner strength.

Do not be quickly provoked in your spirit, for anger resides in the lap of fools. (Ecclesiastes 7:9)
