"He that is angry without daring to confess his resentment, or sorrowful without the liberty of telling his grief; is too frequently inclined to give vent to the fermentations of his mind at the first passages that are opened, and to let his passions boil over upon those whom accident throws in his way."
— Johnson, Samuel (1709-1784)
