Resentment Quotes

It is bad policy to fear the resentment of an enemy.

Ethan Allen

If you hug to yourself any resentment against anybody else, you destroy the bridge by which God would come to you.

Peter Marshall

A cool blooded and crafty politician, when he would be thoroughly revenged on his enemy, makes the injuries which have been inflicted, not on himself, but on others, the pretext of his attack. He thus engages the world as a partisan in his quarrel, and dignifies his private hate, by giving it the air of disinterested resentment.

CHARLES CALEB COLTON

The resentment that criticism engenders can demoralize employees, family members and friends, and still not correct the situation that has been condemned.

Dale Carnegie

An essential condition of listening to God is that the mind should not be distracted by thoughts of resentment, ill-temper, hatred or vengeance, all of which are comprised in the general term, the wrath of man.

R. V. G. Tasker

Hanging onto resentment is letting someone you despise live rent-free in your head.

Ann Landers

Dr Slade went in to lunch in a state of desperate boredom tempered with resentment; it had shaken him a little to see how bad luck could be prolonged to such unlikely lengths.

Paul Bowles

Sympathy for victims is always counter-balanced by an equal and opposite feeling of resentment towards them.

Ben Elton

Then, there's the modern mother-in-law. In her mid 40s, she is the compact car of her breed: efficient, trim, attractive and in harmony with her times. She's pretty stiff competition for the plain young matron who's overweight and under-financed. If there is going to be friction in this relationship, it could start from envy and resentment in the younger woman. But Father Time is on her side, even if Mother Nature played her a dirty trick

Abigail Van Buren

Our fatigue is often caused not by work, but by worry, frustration and resentment.

Dale Carnegie

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

Stephen R Covey

If you can take criticism and blame without resentment, If you can face the world without lies and deceit, If you can conquer tension without medical help, If you can relax without liquor, If you can sleep without the aid of drugs, Then, you are almo.

Unknown

Beware of the man who works hard to learn something, learns it, and finds himself no wiser than before. He is full of murderous resentment of people who are ignorant without having come by their ignorance the hard way.

Bokonon

Forgiveness is the key that unlocks the door of resentment and the handcuffs of hate. It is a power that breaks the chains of bitterness and the shackles of selfishness.

William Arthur Ward

Without forgiveness life is governed by... an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.

Roberto Assagioli

Acceptance of others, their looks, their behaviors, their beliefs, brings you an inner peace and tranquillity instead of anger and resentment.

Anon x

Anger will never disappear so long as thoughts of resentment are cherished in the mind. Anger will disappear just as soon as thoughts of resentment are forgotten.

Buddha

Any act of violence creates resentment and resistance, because humans were meant to be free.

Bryant McGill
