Anger is the noblest human emotion. Its nobility does not stem from its expression however, but from its proximity with reason. In fact, anger is only truly noble when it quickly and effectively corrects injustice – and injustice has more to do with what is due to others than to oneself. The anger of animals exhibits itself mostly through violent acts of self-preservation. Righteous anger exhibits itself through fervent but reasoned acts that result in the restoration of the dignity and freedom of others. The scriptures themselves do not clarify the subject of anger: on the one hand sometimes God is angry, on the other hand we are warned against being angry.
