To be loved is to be fortunate, but to be hated is to achieve distinction.
* Minna Antrim
Now hatred is by far the longest pleasure;
Men love in haste, but they detest at leisure.
* Lord Byron
You are done for--a living dead man--not when you stop loving but stop hating. Hatred preserves: in it, in its chemistry, resides the "mystery" of life.
* E. M. Cioran
Hate is the consequence of fear; we fear something before we hate it; a child who fears noises becomes a man who hates noise.
* Cyril Connolly
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.
* Martin Luther King, Jr.
The most deadly fruit is borne by the hatred which one grafts on an extinguished friendship.
* Gotthold Ephraim Lessing
As the best wine doth make the sharpest vinegar, so the deepest love turneth to the deadliest hate.
* John Lyly
The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.
* Friedrich Nietzsche
It is human nature to hate the man whom you have hurt.
