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 Arthur Baldwin
Hatred is a cold fire, and it gives no warmth.
Laurell K. Hamilton
A Rattlesnake, if Cornered will become so angry it will bite itself. That is exactly what the harboring of hate and resentment against others is - a biting of oneself. We think we are harming others in holding these spites and hates, but the deeper harm is to ourselves.
E. Stanley Jones
Hatred is toxic waste in the river of life.
Like the greatest virtue and the worst dogs, the fiercest hatred is silent.
