What is ANGER

A strong passion of the mind excited by real or supposed injuries; not synonymous with “heat of passion,” “malice.” or “rage or resentment,” because these are all terms of wider import and may include anger as an element or as an incipient stage. Chandler v. State, 141 Ind. 100. 39 N. E. 444 ; Hoffman v. State, 97 Wis. 571, 73 N. W. 51; Eanes v. State, 10 Tex. App. 421, 410.
