    A capacity for anger is very important because if you don't have anger you will begin to tolerate the intolerable...If you do not get angry, you are probably a cynic. And if you lower your quotient of anger at oppresiion, you lower your quotient of compassion for the oppressed...William Sloane Coffin in Cooper et al 1996, Page 36)
    Anyone can become angry - that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way - this is not easy (Aristotle, The Nicomachaen Ethics)
    Anger: fury, outrage, resentment, wrath, exasperation, indignation, vexation, acrimony, annoyance, irritability, hostility...(Goleman 1995, Page 289)
