"With blood and rage of crimson red
Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead
Together with our hellish hate
We'll burn you all - that is your fate!"
― Red Lantern Oath (DC Comics)
"Genuine anger was one of the world’s great creative forces. But you had to learn how to control it. That didn’t mean you let it trickle away. It meant you dammed it, carefully, let it develop a working head, let it drown whole valleys of the mind and then, just when the whole structure was about to collapse, opened a tiny pipeline at the base and let the iron-hard stream of wrath power the turbines of revenge."
― Terry Pratchett, Wyrd Sisters
"Rage. Anger that burn so strong it can incinerate gods. That is what drives Kan Ki."
― Kanki Army soldier (Kingdom)
"Rage is a hell of an anesthetic."
― Zaeed Massani (Mass Effect 2)
"The angrier I get the stronger I get! I’m the strongest one there is! Hulk Smash!!!"
― The Incredible Hulk (Marvel Comics)
