If you've ever been to a poetry slam, you know that the highest scoring emotion is self-righteous indignation: how dare you judge me.

Crankiness is at the essence of all comedy. My wife and I were discussing the different types of cranky. There's entertaining cranky, annoying cranky, angry cranky.

Feeling angry is a universal human phenomenon. It is as basic as feeling hungry, lonely, loving, or tired. The capacity to feel angry and to respond in some way to that feeling is in us from birth.
Theodore Isaac Rubin
Don't get the impression that you arouse my anger. You see, one can only be angry with those he respects.
Richard M. Nixon

George H. W. Bush
Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me.
Zora Neale Hurston

One should not lose one's temper unless one is certain of getting more and more angry to the end.
William Butler Yeats

The biggest lessons I've learned in life have probably come from a bad situation, from an angry situation, even if I wasn't the one who was angry.
Evan Rachel Wood
