Quotes on Love and Hate

Margaret Mitchell
I was never one to patiently pick up broken fragments and glue them together again and tell myself that the mended whole was as good as new. What is broken is broken -- and I'd rather remember it as it was at its best than mend it and see the broken places as long as I lived.

hatred bounces  ~e.e. cummings

Hatreds are the cinders of affection.  ~Walter Raleigh

It is to the credit of human nature, that, except where its selfishness is brought into play, it loves more readily than it hates.  Hatred, by a gradual and quiet process, will even be transformed to love, unless the change be impeded by a continually new irritation of the original feeling of hostility.  ~Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter

Hate is misguided love.  ~Author Unknown

From the deepest desires often come the deadliest hate.  ~Socrates

Take care that no one hates you justly.  ~Publilius Syrus

End discrimination.  Hate everybody.  ~Elle Eden

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

Sigmund Freud
Dogs love their friends and bite their enemies, quite unlike people, who are incapable of pure love and always have to mix love and hate.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
There's nothing in this world so sweet as love. And next to love the sweetest thing is hate.

Josh Billings
Love looks through a telescope; envy, through a microscope.

Hermann Hesse
Often it is the most deserving people who cannot help loving those who destroy them

Mohandas K. Gandhi
Hatred ever kills, love never dies. Such is the vast difference between the two. What is obtained by love is retained for all time. What is obtained by hatred proves a burden in reality for it increases hatred.

Harry Emerson Fosdick
Bitterness imprisons life; love releases it. Bitterness paralyzes life; love empowers it. Bitterness sours life; love sweetens it. Bitterness sickens life; love heals it. Bitterness blinds life; love anoints its eyes.

Elie Wiesel
The opposite of love is not hate; it's indifference.

Doug Horton
Love is a given, hatred is acquired.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illumines it.

William Congreve
Heaven has no rage, like love to hatred turned,
Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorned.

Don’t get hung up on a snag in the stream, my dear. Snags alone are not so dangerous—it’s the debris that clings to them that makes the trouble. Pull yourself loose and go on.

Anne Shannon Monroe
