Hate Quotes

Best Hate Short Quote
Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.

Martin Luther King Jr. , A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches


The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.

Elie Weisel


Best Hate Short Quote
The only thing worse than a boy who hates you: a boy that loves you.

Markus Zusak , The Book Thief


If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.

C. JoyBell C.


Hate the sin, love the sinner.

Mahatma Gandhi


Best Hate Short Quote
When we don't know who to hate, we hate ourselves.

Chuck Palahniuk , Invisible Monsters


There is no such thing as a "broken family." Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.

C. JoyBell C.


livid,
adj.
Fuck You for cheating on me. Fuck you for reducing it to the word cheating. As if this were a card game, and you sneaked a look at my hand. Who came up with the term
cheating,
anyway? A cheater, I imagine. Someone who thought
liar
was too harsh. Someone who thought
devastator
was too emotional. The same person who thought, oops, he’d gotten
caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
Fuck you. This isn’t about slipping yourself an extra twenty dollars of Monopoly money. These are our lives. You went and broke our lives. You are so much worse than a cheater. You killed something. And you killed it when its back was turned.

Rachel Cohn (Author) David Levithan (Author)


In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him. I think it’s impossible to really understand somebody, what they want, what they believe, and not love them the way they love themselves. And then, in that very moment when I love them.... I destroy them.

Orsen Scott Card , Ender's Game


Best Hate Short Quote
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 Fire Next Time


I know enough to know that no woman should ever marry a man who hated his mother.

Martha Gellhorn , Selected Letters


Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too.

Will Smith


Now there is a final reason I think that Jesus says, "Love your enemies." It is this: that love has within it a redemptive power. And there is a power there that eventually transforms individuals. Just keep being friendly to that person. Just keep loving them, and they can’t stand it too long. Oh, they react in many ways in the beginning. They react with guilt feelings, and sometimes they’ll hate you a little more at that transition period, but just keep loving them. And by the power of your love they will break down under the load. That’s love, you see. It is redemptive, and this is why Jesus says love. There’s something about love that builds up and is creative. There is something about hate that tears down and is destructive. So love your enemies. (from "Loving Your Enemies")

Martin Luther King Jr. , A Knock at Midnight: Inspiration from the Great Sermons of Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr.


Anger is like flowing water; there's nothing wrong with it as long as you let it flow. Hate is like stagnant water; anger that you denied yourself the freedom to feel, the freedom to flow; water that you gathered in one place and left to forget. Stagnant water becomes dirty, stinky, disease-ridden, poisonous, deadly; that is your hate. On flowing water travels little paper boats; paper boats of forgiveness. Allow yourself to feel anger, allow your waters to flow, along with all the paper boats of forgiveness. Be human.

C. JoyBell C.


No, I am not bitter, I am not hateful, and I am not unforgiving. I just don't like you.

C. JoyBell C.


In time we hate that which we often fear.

William Shakespeare , The Tragedie of Antony and Cleopatra


Best Hate Short Quote
Animals don't hate, and we're supposed to be better than them.

Elvis Presley


May she wake in torment!" he cried, with frightful vehemence, stamping his foot, and groaning in a sudden paroxysm of ungovernable passion. "Why, she's a liar to the end! Where is she? Not there—not in heaven—not perished—where? Oh! you said you cared nothing for my sufferings! And I pray one prayer—I repeat it till my tongue stiffens—May she wake in torment!" he cried, with frightful vehemence, stamping his foot, and groaning in a sudden paroxysm of ungovernable passion. "Why, she's a liar to the end! Where is she? Not there—not in heaven—not perished—where? Oh! you said you cared nothing for my sufferings! And I pray one prayer—I repeat it till my tongue stiffens—Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living; you said I killed you—haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!

Emily Brontë , Wuthering Heights


I already explained this. I don’t like you. True, I don’t like most people, but I especially dislike you. I could start my own religion based on how much I dislike you.

G.A. Aiken


Hate looks like everybody else until it smiles

Mafi Taereh

Joseph Fort Newton


The opposite of love is not hate. Hate is just love gone bad. The actual opposite of love is apathy. When you don't care a damn as to what happens to the other person.

Amish Tripathi


When you really know somebody you can’t hate them. Or maybe it’s just that you can’t really know them until you stop hating them.

Orsen Scott Card , Speaker for the Dead


Best Hate Short Quote
Stronger than lover's love is lover's hate. Incurable, in each, the wounds they make.

Euripides , Medea


To die hating them, that was freedom.

George Orwell , 1984


Isn't it funny. I'm enjoying my hatred so much more than I ever enjoyed love. Love is temperamental. Tiring. It makes demands. Love uses you, changes its mind. But hatred, now, that's something you can use. Sculpt. Wield. It's hard, or soft, however you need it. Love humiliates you, but Hatred cradles you.

Janet Fitch , White Oleander


Men are driven by two principal impulses, either by love or by fear.

Nicolo Machiaveli


Most hatred is based on fear, one way or another. Yeah. I wrapped myself in anger, with a dash of hate, and at the bottom of it all was an icy center of pure terror.

Laurell K. Hamilton , Guilty Pleasures


Hate is... It's too easy. Love. Love takes courage.

Hannah Harrington


There is no beauty in sadness. No honor in suffering. No growth in fear. No relief in hate. It’s just a waste of perfectly good happiness.

Katerina Stoykova Klemer


Best Hate Short Quote
I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him.

Booker T. Washington


I would rather a romantic relationship turn into contempt than turn into apathy. The passion in the extremities make it appear as though it once meant something. We grow from hot or cold, but lukewarm is the biggest insult.

Criss Jami


Best Hate Short Quote
Hate hurts the hater more'n the hated.

Madeleine L'Engle


Stuff your eyes with wonder," he said, "live as if you'd drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask no guarantees, ask for no security, there never was such an animal. And if there were, it would be related to the great sloth which hangs upside down in a tree all day every day, sleeping its life away. To hell with that," he said, "shake the tree and knock the great sloth down on his ass.

Ray Bradbury


I never lie," I said offhand. "At least not to those I don't love.

Anne Rice , The Vampire Lestat


Those people, who hate you, envy your freedom.

Santosh Kalwar , Quote Me Everyday


Well my gun fires seven different shades of shit, so what's your favorite color, punk?

Gerard Way


Nothing else wounds so deeply and irreparably. Nothing else robs us of hope so much as being unloved by one we love

Clive Barker


If it weren't for greed, intolerance, hate, passion and murder, you would have no works of art, no great buildings, no medical science, no Mozart, no Van Gough, no Muppets and no Louis Armstrong.

Jasper Fforde , The Big Over Easy


To truly hate is an art one learns with time.

Carlos Ruiz Zafón


Sensitive people usually love deeply and hate deeply. They don't know any other way to live than by extremes because thier emotional theromastat is broken.

Shannon Alder


In the present case it is a little inaccurate to say I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible to any public office of trust or profit in the Republic. But I do not repine, for I am a subject of it only by force of arms.

H.L. Mencken


I can't take it anymore. The waiting. The wanting. Something inside me snaps. I hate myself. I hate that I have to deal with this. I hate my life. And I hate how I can't count on anyone to be completely there when I need them, exactly the way I need them to be.

Susane Colasanti , Waiting for You


Best Hate Short Quote
I hate you, God. I hate you as though you actually exist.

Graham Greene , The End of the Affair


Hatred is like a long, dark shadow. Not even the person it falls upon knows where it comes from, in most cases. It is like a two-edged sword. When you cut the other person, you cut yourself. The more violently you hack at the other person, the more violently you hack at yourself. It can often be fatal. But it is not easy to dispose of. Please be careful, Mr.Okada. It is very dangerous. Once it has taken root in your heart, hatred is the most difficult think in the world to shake off.

Haruki Murakami


I think there must be probably different types of suicides. I'm not one of the self-hating ones. The type of like "I'm shit and the world'd be better off without poor me" type that says that but also imagines what everybody'll say at their funeral. I've met types like that on wards. Poor-me-I-hate-me-punish-me-come-to-my-funeral. Then they show you a 20 X 25 glossy of their dead cat. It's all self-pity bullshit. It's bullshit. I didn't have any special grudges. I didn't fail an exam or get dumped by anybody. All these types. Hurt themselves. I didn't want to especially hurt myself. Or like punish. I don't hate myself. I just wanted out. I didn't want to play anymore is all. I wanted to just stop being conscious. I'm a whole different type. I wanted to stop feeling this way. If I could have just put myself in a really long coma I would have done that. Or given myself shock I would have done that. Instead.

David Foster Wallace A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again


I hate you' she said to me one afternoon. 'I really, really hate you.' Call me sensitive, but I couldn't help but take it personally.

David Sedaris , Me Talk Pretty One Day
