St. Peter Julian Eymard
The old Adam is wrathful by nature, and the more so in proportion to his pride. Every proud man is violent, severe, and choleric. Impatience is nourished by pride, it is its voice and gesture. Wrath rests on the love that man entertains for himself, for his own ease, his own natural happiness. It is man's resistance to whatever tends to snatch from him what he loves. It is the cry of self-love and egoism.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
