[11] Again, men are angry when the event is contrary to their expectation, for the more unexpected a thing is, the more it pains; just as they are overjoyed if, contrary to expectation, what they desire comes to pass. From this it is obvious what are the seasons, times, states of mind, and conditions of age in which we are easily moved1 to anger; and what are the various times, places, and reasons, which make us more prone to anger in proportion as we are subject to their influence.
