Hate Quotes

Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies - or else? The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.

Martin Luther King Jr 1929

For 'tis impossible Hate to return with love.

Mohamed Abdel Moneim Fayed

We are the youth, we can make coolness for our future, it's up to us. Go green and hate hate.

Lily Rose Beatrice Allen

The young have exalted notions, because they have not been humbled by life or learned its necessary limitations; moreover, their hopeful disposition makes them think themselves equal to great thingsand that means having exalted notions. They would always rather do noble deeds than useful ones: Their lives are regulated more by moral feeling than by reasoning.... All their mistakes are in the direction of doing things excessively and vehemently. They overdo everything; they love too much, hate too much, and the same with everything else.

Aristotle

I know how to love those Who love me, how to hate.

Archilochus

Heart, my heart, so battered with misfortune far beyond your strength, up, and face the men who hate us. Bare your chest to the assault of the enemy, and fight them off. Stand fast among the beamlike spears. Give no ground; and if you beat them, do not brag in open show, nor, if they beat you, run home and lie down on your bed and cry. Keep some measure in the joy you take in luck, and the degree you give way to sorrow. All our life is up-and-down like this.

Archilochus

Even as in the blessed in heaven there will be most perfect charity, so in the damned there will be the most perfect hate. Wherefore as the saints will rejoice in all goods, so will the damned grieve for all goods. Consequently the sight of the happiness of the saints will give them very great pain; hence it is written (Isaiah 26:11): "Let the envious people see and be confounded, and let fire devour Thy enemies." Therefore they will wish all the good were damned.

Saint Thomas Aquinas

Since I won't let the critics seal my fate, they keep hollering I'm full of hate. But they don't really hurt me none, 'cause I'm doing good and having fun.

Muhammad Ali

Have love for your friend up to a limit for it is possible he may turn into your enemy some day; and hate your enemy up to a limit for it is possible he may turn into your friend some day.

Ali bin Abu-Talib

Anger is a weed; hate is the tree.

St. Augustine of Hippo

Love the sinner and hate the sin.

St. Augustine of Hippo

I hated the devil and was sick with his temptations and tortures; and I could not tell why the voice in his departing words was so sweet that when he returned often and offered himself to me, it was with sorrow I refused him. Then I discovered it was Krishna at His tricks and my hate was changed into laughter.

Sri Aurobindo

Hate not the oppressor, for, if he is strong, thy hate increases his force of resistance; if he is weak, thy hate was needless.

Sri Aurobindo

So, I travel a lot. I hate traveling, mostly cause my dad used to beat me with a globe.

Dave Attell

In a world of hate, love is the revolution.

Bryant McGill

Love heals violence and all its sources. Love only serves and does not calculate. Love gives without expectation, while hate carries an endless tally of debts. Hate controls everything it touches, but love sets everything it touches free.

Bryant McGill

You reclaim your power by loving what you were once taught to hate.

Bryant McGill

Anger precedes hate, while love vicariously hangs in the balance.

Lorraine Gokul

Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.

William Blake

If you learn to know your enemy before you hate him, you may learn not to have an enemy. Too often a Montmer will take one today over three yesterdays and two tomorrows. To see the world with the eyes of others is to stand atop a new mountain. Knowing the length of a Montmers ear wont tell you if he can listen. Better to live with ten Montmers in uneasy peace than one in a war. When you take one backward hop it requires two hops to go forward. You are never more alone when you are followed by many. Fear not the weak, only they try to hide their weaknesses. Nothing in the world is so small that the sun cannot warm it. Truth is often painful to speak but soothing to live. Of all things the hardest to keep is a promise. Lies fly then fall. Truth hops but keeps going. Of all challenges the greatest is to be yourself. They who pine for the past, fear the future. A life without a challenge is a life not lived. Life is given. The rest one gives oneself. Ignorance is the cruelest weather. Only the dead have no choices. The future begins in the past.

Edward Irving Wortis

You must attend to this matter. While being completely law-abiding, some people are imprisoned, treated harshly and even killed without cause so that many people suffer. Therefore your aim should be to act with impartiality. It is because of these things envy, anger, cruelty, hate, indifference, laziness or tiredness that such a thing does not happen. Therefore your aim should be: "May these things not be in me." And the root of this is non-anger and patience. Those who are bored with the administration of justice will not be promoted; (those who are not) will move upwards and be promoted. Whoever among you understands this should say to his colleagues: "See that you do your duty properly. Such and such are Beloved-of-the-Gods' instructions." Great fruit will result from doing your duty, while failing in it will result in gaining neither heaven nor the king's pleasure. Failure in duty on your part will not please me. But done properly, it will win you heaven and you will be discharging your debts to me.

Ashoka the Great

I have three phobias which, could I mute them, would make my life as slick as a sonnet, but as dull as ditch water - I hate to go to bed, I hate to get up, and I hate to be alone.

Tallulah Brockman Bankhead

Between persons who are perpetually in each other's company dislike or love increases daily; every moment brings reasons to love or hate each other more and more.

Honor de Balzac

People are usually surprised to discover that I hate the phrase "constitutional rights." I hate the phrase because it is terribly misleading. Most of the people who say it or hear it have the impression that the Constitution "grants" them their rights. Nothing could be further from the truth. Strictly speaking it is the Bill of Rights that enumerates our rights, but none of our founding documents bestow anything on you at all [...] The government can burn the Constitution and shred the Bill of Rights, but those actions wouldn't have the slightest effect on the rights you've always had.
