Hate


Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated. ~Coretta Scott King

Hate is the absolute worst four-letter word out there.
I refuse to give any energy to hate.

Powerful post. I like that you quoted Coretta today ;)

Devika said...

So true...

Loving is so easy, too
still hatred/enmity/sarcasm is what characterises human conversation, in these time..

Wonder how fast people change, and how easy its for some to adopt a tone of enmity...

That was a good one, GZ

Amazing Blog. I love how you express your feelings. In no way could I pick better Quotes -- pleasing arrangement.

A short time ago, I created a folder on my laptop for short quotes and many found here now live there. Perhaps too many, have you considered a book?

it's so difficult to remind one of this truth when they've been hurt, even if that means they're doubly hurt as a result.
good choice of photo to go with this one.

soulbrush said...

love and hate are so closely linked, it is scary. great quote.

Rethabile said...

Amen.

Teri said...

I found your blogs by way of studio lolo. Your pictures and the quotes I will try to begin each day with, like a calendar of thought-full-ness.

Hmmmm... interested by this idea... have been thinking lately about forgiveness and reconciliation... but I wonder... can the guilty ever know they are guilty, or do we all just believe whatever we have to believe to get by in the world???

Even in jest "I hate" carries its own karma.

Hate consumes the person doing the hating.It is like slow suicide.
