The Quotalizer: Hatred

“It is a weakness of your human nature to hate those whom you have wronged.”
— Tacitus

“Hatred is a boomerang which is sure to hit you harder than the one at whom you throw it.”
— Anonymous

“To wrong those we hate is to add fuel to our hatred.”
— Eric Hoffer

“Hatred is the vice of narrow souls; they feed it with all their littleness, and make it the pretext of base tyrannies.”
— Honore de Balzac

“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”
— James Baldwin

“The aim of life is some way of living, as flexible and gentle as human nature; so that ambition may stoop to kindness, and philosophy to candor and humor. Neither prosperity nor empire nor heaven can be worth winning at the price of a virulent temper, bloody hands, an anguished spirit, and a vain hatred of the rest of the world.”
— George Santayana

“As you grow older, youll see white men cheat black men every day of your life, but let me tell you something and dont you forget it whenever a white man does that to a black man, no matter who he is, how rich he is, or how fine a family he comes from, that white man is trash.”
— Harper Lee

“Politics has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.”
— Henry Brooks Adams

“The foremost art of kings is the ability to endure hatred.”
— Seneca
