…wrath begins to speak in a self-righteous voice, building a case within your mind-your reason-that you are “right” and therefore action is justified. Your reason refuses to relent, stoking the fire of anger constantly, because it takes a great deal of fuel to keep the fires of self-righteousness burning. Wrath eventually consumes you on your own pyre. – Defy Gravity: Healing Beyond the Bounds of Reason by Caroline Myss
