Then, Ire came in with quarrelling and strife,
His hand was aye his knife, He brandished like a bear.
(The Seven Deadly Sins, William Dunbar, 15th C.)
Wrath still more woe doth on the wrathful press, for its fierce mood lights up hell’s fiery heat;
Then ill deeds come, and loss of holiness
‘The Good Angel coveteth evermore man’s salvation,
The Bad beseteth him evermore to his damnation,
(Castle of Preserverance 1425- morality play)
