Pro

Anger can be a good moral motivation.
(1.) Those who are good tempered are praised.
(2.) Anger is useful because it makes men keener to fight.
(3.) Anger comes in the aid of courage.
(4.) You cannot win a fight without it filling your mind; it must be treated not as a commander, but as a soldier in battle.
Anger is useful, especially in the middle state.

Con

Anger is not a good moral motivation, because anger is not a useful emotion. If anger arises, then we are not able to control it. If it gets to the point that we cannot control it, then there is no ability to moderate it and stay a good tempered person.
