QUOTES ON HATE


Some men are friends with the whole world in their hearts, and there are others that hate themselves and spread their hatred around like butter on hot bread.

JOHN STEINBECK, East of Eden

It is a curious subject of observation and inquiry, whether hatred and love be not the same thing at bottom. Each, in its utmost development, supposes a high degree of intimacy and heart-knowledge; each renders one individual dependent for the food of his affections and spiritual life upon another; each leaves the passionate lover, or the no less passionate hater, forlorn and desolate by the withdrawal of his object.

NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE, The Scarlet Letter

Ease would recant
Vows made in pain, as violent and void.
For never can true reconcilement grow
Where wounds of deadly hate have pierced so deep.

JOHN MILTON, Paradise Lost

We are told when we are growing up that Hate is a strong word, that we should save it for the despicable things in life.

JANE HAMILTON, A Map of the World
