    • n anger Synonyms Anger, Vexation, Indignation, Resentment, Wrath, Ire, Choler, Rage, Fury, passion, displeasure, dudgeon, irritation, gall, bile, spleen. Vexation is the least forcible of these words, expressing the annoyance and impatient chafing of one whose mood has been crossed, whose expectations have not been realized, etc. Indignation may be the most high-minded and unselfish; it is intense feeling in view of grossly unworthy conduct, whether toward one's self or toward others. The other words denote almost exclusively feeling excited by the sense of personal injury. Anger is a sudden violent feeling of displeasure over injury, disobedience, etc., accompanied by a retaliatory impulse; it easily becomes excessive, and its manifestation is generally accompanied by a loss of self-control. Resentment is the broadest in its meaning, denoting the instinctive and proper recoil of feeling when one is injured, and often a deep and bitter brooding over past wrongs, with a consequent hatred and settled desire for vengeance; it is, in the latter sense, the coolest and most permanent of these feelings. Wrath and ire express sudden feeling of great power, and are often associated with the notion of the superiority of the person: as, the wrath of Jove, the ire of Achilles. They are often the result of wounded pride. Ire is poetic. Wrath has also an exalted sense, expressive of a lofty indignation visiting justice upon wrong-doing. Rage is an outburst of anger, with little or no self-control; fury is even more violent than rage, rising almost to madness. The chief characteristic of choler is quickness to rise; it is irascibility, easily breaking into a high degree of resentful feeling.
