Alexander Pope – To be angry is to revenge the faults of others on ourselves.

Why would you cause pains to yourself and punish yourself for an offence you didn’t commit? Does it make sense for you to whip and cut yourself, leaving ugly wounds on your heart for the fault of others? This is what you do to yourself when you allow yourself to get angry with someone or at something someone does. So, next time someone attempts to get you angry, check yourself before you wreck yourself.
