Anger and Discontent

Keep this thought handy when you feel a fit of rage coming on—it isn’t manly to be enraged.

Rather, gentleness and civility are more human, and therefore manlier.

A real man doesn’t give way to anger and discontent, and such a person has strength, courage, and endurance—unlike the angry and complaining.

The nearer a man comes to a calm mind, the closer he is to strength.

 Marcus Aurelius
