Recently I was asked the question, “Is it ever right to get angry?” Well, if by anger you mean simply a great disapproval of what someone has done, or is doing, then the answer is: “Yes, anger is sometimes right. But this is not the usual meaning of the word; for it nearly always refers to a more or less excited and unpitying disapproval of what someone has done, the excitement showing itself in a tendency to lose your self-control and act or feel unwisely or selfishly. And I venture to say that ninety-nine times out of a hundred, when we are forced to admit to others, or in our own secret thoughts, that when we are angry, this is the definition of anger which applies to our case. Is it right, then, to get angry? Most emphatically, No — now matter how great the provocation, for it is often rooted in selfishness.
