|Misanthropy ariseth from a man trusting another without having sufficient knowledge of his character, and, thinking him to be truthful, sincere, and honorable, finds a little afterwards that he is wicked, faithless, and then he meets with another of the same character. When a man experiences this often, and more particularly from those whom he considered his most dear and best friends, at last, having frequently made a slip, he hates the whole world, and thinks that there is nothing sound at all in any of them.
|Hate, it has caused a lot of problems in the world, but has not solved one yet.

|One man envies the success in life of another, and hates him in secret; nor is he willing to give him good advice when he is consulted, except it be by some wonderful effort of good feeling, and there are, alas, few such men in the world.

– Louis Brandeis (1856-1941)
|Love me or hate me, both are in my favor . . . If you love me, I’ll always be in your heart . . . If you hate me, I’ll always be in your mind.
– William Shakespeare (1564-1616)
|Intolerance of groups is often, strangely enough, exhibited more strongly against small differences than against fundamental ones.
– Sigmund Freud (1856-1939)
