No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
We should emphasize not Negro History, but the Negro in history. What we need is not a history of selected races or nations, but the history of the world void of national bias, race hate, and religious prejudice.Carter Woodson, "The Celebration of Negro History Week", Journal of Negro History (April 1927)
You have been told that God is a loving, gracious, merciful, kind, compassionate, wonderful, and good sky fairy who runs a day care in the sky and has a bucket of suckers for everyone because we're all good people. That is a lie... God looks down and says 'I hate you, you are my enemy, and I will crush you,' and we say that is deserved, right and just, and then God says 'Because of Jesus I will love you and forgive you.' This is a miracle.mark driscoll
I want the Brahmins to realize that the Dravidian people today are very much hating those who cunningly cheated them with absurdities. They are now aware of the particular community making a living by spreading the foolishness. People have begun to hate god, religion, caste, mythologies (puranas) and so on”.periyar e. v. ramasamy
It's not that I hate people, I just feel better when they're not around.Henry Chinaski in Bar Fly. (Sourced)
Even as in the blessed in heaven there will be most perfect charity, so in the damned there will be the most perfect hate. Wherefore as the saints will rejoice in all goods, so will the damned grieve for all goods. Consequently the sight of the happiness of the saints will give them very great pain; hence it is written (Isaiah 26:11): "Let the envious people see and be confounded, and let fire devour Thy enemies." Therefore they will wish all the good were damned.thomas aquinas
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, Up From Slavery (1901) Ch. XI
But because we live in a liberal democracy and therefore have certain double standards to maintain, any criticism of Islam or of Muslims always draws the immediate accusation of Islamophobia, a dishonest word which seeks to portray legitimate comment as some kind of hate crime.Pat Condell, YouTube video (16 March 2007, from YouTube)
We hate war . We do not rejoice in victories. We rejoice when a new kind of cotton is grown, and when strawberries bloom in Israel .Golda Meir, in As good as Golda: the warmth and wisdom of Israel's Prime Minister, McCall Pub. Co., 1 January 1970, p.28
But I have never been able to love what was not lovable or hate what was not hateful, out of deference for some general principle .Joseph Conrad, in Some Reminiscences, p.9

"I hate to tell you this," Jason said, "but I think your leopard just ate a goddess."Rick Riordan, The Lost Hero, Heroes of Olympus Book 1 (Penguin UK, 2010), Ch. VII: Jason
If every one in the world will love universally; states not attacking one another; houses not disturbing one another; thieves and robbers becoming extinct; emperor and ministers, fathers and sons, all being affectionate and filial -- if all this comes to pass the world will be orderly. Therefore, how can the wise man who has charge of governing the empire fail to restrain hate and encourage love? So, when there is universal love in the world it will be orderly, and when there is mutual hate in the world it will be disorderly.Book 4; Universal Love I
