Hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity, and block a nation’s progress to freedom and democracy. ~ Liu Xiaobo
“I don’t hate you.. I just don’t like that you exist”
― Gena Showalter, Seduce the Darkness
Try to understand men. If you understand each other you will be kind to each other. Knowing a man well never leads to hate and almost always leads to love.
Never waste a minute thinking about people you don’t like.
Hatred is the coward’s revenge for being intimidated.
People that have trust issues only need to look in the mirror. There they will meet the one person that will betray them the most.
A Rattlesnake, if Cornered will become so angry it will bite itself. That is exactly what the harboring of hate and resentment against others is — a biting of oneself. We think we are harming others in holding these spites and hates, but the deeper harm is to ourselves.
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn’t part of ourselves doesn’t disturb us.
Hate is misguided love.
