A few quotations... * I would permit no man, no matter what his colour might be, to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him. - Booker T. Washington * If you hate your enemies, you will contract such a vicious habit of mind, as by degrees will break out upon those who are your friends, or those who are indifferent to you. - Joseph Addison * We hate some persons because we do not know them; and we will not know them because we hate them. - Charles Caleb Colton * Now hatred is by far the longest pleasure; men love in haste but they detest at leisure. - Lord Byron * Hatred is a vice of narrow souls; they feed it with all their meanness, and make it a pretext for sordid tyranny. - Honoré de Balzac * In time we hate that which we often fear.- William Shakespeare * If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is a part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us. - Herman Hesse * Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice. Justice at its best is love correcting everything that stands against love. - Martin Luther King, Jr.
