Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with
the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right
purpose, and in the right way – that is not within everybody’s power and is not
easy – Aristole

A person who can master these words can elevate himself to a higher ground emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Many people try to suppress anger and then end up causing serious problems to themselves. It is not easy to deal with anger. If one can develop qualities of patience, rationale thinking, discipline and self control then it will be a bit easier to conquer the emotion of anger. Figuring out the end result before indulging in the emotion of anger, also helps the cause. It gives you a perspective on what you will lose and what you will gain by exercising this powerful emotion.
The words crafted in the quote will act as a compass for all those who want to embark on the journey of controlling such a powerful emotion. Understanding the emotion is important. Once you start to understand the emotion of anger, then it becomes much easier to control its influence over yourself and your surroundings.
I am sure the above words will help you to understand this emotion. It is up to you what you want to do with the understanding gained.
