Madow, L. (1974).  Anger.
Williams, R. (1998).  Anger Kills: Seventeen Strategies for Controlling the Hostility That Can Harm Your Health.
"By allowing yourself a range of strategies—both asserting and deflecting options—you can balance your twin goals of preventing petty matters from riling you and remain focused on your legitimate rights and those of others. Sometimes you may choose to take a stand for what is right; at other times you may prefer to tune out the situation. Real injustices do exist in the world. The goal in learning to control your hostility is not to become insensitive to all injustices but rather to become more focused and selective." (p. 148)

"If we water the seed of anger or hatred, it will make the living room of our mind a hell for ourselves and our loved ones." (p. 18)
Goldhor-Lerner, H. (1986).  The Dance of Anger.
"In using our anger as a guide to determining our innermost needs, values, and priorities, we should not be distressed if we discover just how unclear we are. If we feel chronically angry or bitter in an important relationship, this is a signal that too much of the self has been compromised and we are uncertain about what new position to take or what options we have available to us. To recognize our lack of clarity is not weakness, but an opportunity, a challenge, and a strength." (p. 106)
Lama, D. (2001).  Ethics for the New Millennium. 260. Abstract
"It is not impossible to imagine anger at the sight of injustice which causes someone to act altruistically. The anger that causes us to go to the assistance of someone who is being attacked in the street could be characterized as positive. But if this goes beyond meeting the injustice, if it becomes personal and turns into vengefulness or maliciousness, then danger arises. When we do something negative, we are capable of recognizing the difference between ourselves and the negative act. But we often fail to separate action and agent when it comes to others. This shows us how unreliable is even apparently justified anger." (p. 96)
Greenberger, D., & Padesky C. (1995).  Mind Over Mood: Change How You Feel by Changing the Way You Think.
"Anger is linked to a perception of damage or hurt and to a belief that important rules have been violated. We become angry if we think we have been treated unfairly, hurt unnecessarily, or prevented from obtaining something we expected to achieve. Notice the emphasis on fairness, reasonableness, and expectation." (p. 193)
Clark, A. D., & Perkins P. (1996).  Surviving Your Boss: How to Cope With Office Politics and Get on With Your Job.
"In any situation of change, conflict, or misunderstanding there is anger. Anger frequently masks fear. Fear in situations of conflict and change is very predictable. And with anger there is usually blame, for oneself and for others. Anger is one of the most destructive forces in the workplace today. It is ultimately a fatal emotion. Studies show that about 20 percent of us have hostility levels high enough to be dangerous—to our own health and to those around us. Hostility level is associated with increased smoking, drinking, eating, and weight gain. Hostility has long been a well-established contributor to coronary risk and heart disease, as well as myriad other illnesses.
It's likely you have experienced the relationship between anger, depression, resentment, and low self-esteem. You know about the aches and pains that come from tension. The fatigue and lack of joy that ensue as days are increasingly filled with the burden of frustration and suppressed rage." (p. 96)
