How to pacify Anger and Irritation?

The Blessed Buddha once said:
There are, Bhikkhus and Friends, five methods to quell Hate and Anger.
Which are these?
Towards any person against whom hatred and anger have arisen,
1: One should quickly direct mind to, cultivate and develop:
All-embracing, gentle and kind friendliness towards that person... or
2: One should quickly direct mind to, cultivate and develop: 
compassion and pity ... mutual joy and ... indifferent equanimity ... or
3: One should avoid and not pay that person any attention at all ... or
4: One should remind oneself of the law of ownership of kamma or
5: One should know that this person too is the owner and inheritor of his
own actions, that he is born and created by them, that his actions are his
future foundation, and that he will have both his good and bad actions
as his inevitable future... In these 5 ways one may overcome hate and anger...
