Peace begins with a smile-smile five times a day at someone you don't really want to smile at at all-do it for peace. So let us radiate peace...and extinguish in the world and in the hearts of all men all hatred and love for power. Mother Teresa

Heavy, heavy-hearted people grow lighter and rise occasionally to their surface through precisely that which makes others heavier,through hatred and love. Friedrich Nietzsche

Hatred is toxic to you and those around you. The condition should be treated with understanding and love until it is healed. Leon Brown

Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The value of hatred and ignorance is found in the fact that without them we could never truly appreciate wisdom and love. Wes Fesler

One can overcome the forces of negative emotions, like anger and hatred, by cultivating their counter-forces, like love and compassion. Dalai Lama

From what has been said we can clearly understand the nature of Love and Hate. Love is nothing else but pleasure accompanied by the idea of an external cause: Hate is nothing else but pain accompanied by the idea of an external cause. We further see, that he who loves necessarily endeavors to have, and to keep present to him, the object of his love; while he who hates endeavors to remove and destroy the object of his hatred. Baruch Spinoza

The principal difference between love and hate is that love is a irradiation, and hate is a concentration. Love makes everything lovely; hate concentrates itself on the object of its hatred. Sydney J Harris

Hatred is partial, but love is still more so. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

We are all, by nature, clearly oriented toward the basic human values of love and compassion. We all prefer the love of others to their hatred. We all prefer others' generosity to meanness. And who is there among us who does not prefer tolerance, respect and forgiveness of our failings to bigotry, disrespect, and resentment? Dalai Lama

...it is presumptuous ridicule of God if someone thinks that only the person who desires great wealth chooses mammon. Alas, the person who insists on having a penny without God, wants to have a penny all for himself. He thereby chooses mammon. A penny is enough, the choice is made, he has chosen mammon; that it is little makes not the slightest difference. The love of God is hatred of the world and love of the world hatred of God. Soren Kierkegaard

Hatred darkens life; love illumines it. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Violent people usually express their love of a thing by their hatred of its opposite. Norm Macdonald

Good works are continually being undone by the tons of hatred and anger which are being poured out on the world. Swami Vivekananda

Anger, hatred and jealousy never solve problems, only affection, concern and respect can do that. Dalai Lama

What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us. Hermann Hesse

What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness; but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or they be black. Robert Kennedy

Love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. Nelson Mandela

I wanted pure love: foolishness; to love one another is to hate a common enemy: I will thus espouse your hatred. I wanted Good: nonsense; on this earth and in these times, Good and Bad are inseparable: I accept to be evil in order to become good. Jean-Paul Sartre

To see the universe as it is, you must step beyond the net [the matrix]. It is not hard to do so, as the net is full of holes. Look at the net and its many contradictions. You do and undo at every step. You want peace, love and happiness, and work hard to create pain, hatred and war. You want longevity and you overeat. You want friendship and you exploit. See your net as made of such contradictions and remove them - your very seeing them will make them go away. Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

As far as your ego is concerned and your jealousy is concerned, my whole work here is to help you become so loving that the energy that becomes jealousy is transformed into love. And you know perfectly well that jealousy always follows your love. You are not jealous without love. A man who does not love is not jealous. Jealousy is almost like a shadow of love. If we can grow our love, it takes over the whole energy of jealousy and transforms it into love. It is an alchemical change. Rajneesh

Hatred is increased by being reciprocated, and can on the other hand be destroyed by love. Baruch Spinoza

If love is what is held to make us immortal, hatred is the reverse. Rachel Cusk

Love is both wondrous and yet full of peril. Love is a gateway through which hatred - disguised and unrecognized - can pass. David Gemmell

The path of self-purification is hard and steep. One has to become absolutely passion-free in thought, speech and action to rise above the opposing currents of love and hatred, attachment and repulsion. I know that I have not in me as yet that triple purity in spite of constant ceaseless striving for it. That is why the world's praise fails to move me, indeed it very often stings me. To conquer the subtle passions seems to me to be harder far than the physical conquest of the world by the force of arms. Mahatma Gandhi

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The pure love of one soul can offset the hatred of millions. Mahatma Gandhi

Nothing better forges a bond of love, friendship or respect than common hatred toward something. Anton Chekhov

What has violence ever accomplished? What has it ever created? No martyr's cause has ever been stilled by an assassin's bullet... What we need is not division; what we need is not hatred, but love and compassion toward one another and a feeling of justice toward those who suffer within our community, whatever their color or faith. Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Robert Kennedy

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence... Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. Martin Luther King, Jr.

People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love. Nelson Mandela

The only way to have room enough in our hearts to truly love others is to purge all hatred, and replace it with love. Wes Fesler

You can't let doubt or fear or guilt eat away at you. You are good and you need to remember that above all else. Love is stronger than hatred, and you are made of love. Amanda Hocking

Let us only hate hatred; and once give love a play, we will fall in love with a unicorn. Herman Melville

Love and work, work and love...that's all there is. Sigmund Freud

Dignity and love do not blend. Suzanne Curchod

We cannot overcome anger and hatred simply by suppressing them. We need to actively cultivate the antidotes: patience and tolerance. Dalai Lama

I free myself from hatred through forgiveness and love. Paulo Coelho

Hatred is keener than friendship, less keen than love. Luc De Clapiers

The life and love we create is the life and love we live. Leo Buscaglia

Love is of all stimulants the most powerful. It sharpens the wits like danger, and the memory like hatred; it spurs the will like ambition; it intoxicates like wine. Amelia B. Edwards

If one judges love according to the greatest part of the effects it produces, it would appear to resemble rather hatred than kindness. Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Faith is like love, it cannot be forced. Therefore it is a dangerous operation if an attempt be made to introduce or bind it by state regulations; for, as the attempt to force love begets hatred, so also to compel religious belief produces rank unbelief. Arthur Schopenhauer

I've seen hatred and I have seen love. And love is more powerful. Immaculee Ilibagiza

Justice from Love, and Love from Justice Carlos Filipe Ximenes Belo

Follow the truth to life and love what you do... Be passionate about it to the point where you're willing to do anything for it. Elie Tahari

We are identified with the ego, and with the ego there are many things: anger and hatred and jealousy and possessiveness and greed - the whole train. The ego functions like an engine and there are many many compartments following it. Once the ego dies the whole train stops. Rajneesh

Crude men who feel themselves insulted tend to assess the degree of insult as high as possible, and talk about the offense in greatly exaggerated language, only so they can revel to their heart's content in the aroused feelings of hatred and revenge. Friedrich Nietzsche

The world in which we live would benefit greatly if men and women everywhere would exercise the pure love of Christ, which is kind, meek, and lowly. It is without envy or pride. It is selfless because it seeks nothing in return. It does not countenance evil or ill will, nor rejoice in iniquity; it has no place for bigotry, hatred, or violence. It refuses to condone ridicule, vulgarity, abuse, or ostracism. It encourages diverse people to live together in Christian love regardless of religious belief, race, nationality, financial standing, education, or culture. Howard W. Hunter

If a man had begun to hate an object of his love, so that love is thoroughly destroyed, he will, causes being equal, regard it with more hatred than if he had never loved it, and his hatred will be in proportion to the strength of his former love. Baruch Spinoza

But more than brave, you have love. And love is brave. Richard Paul Evans

Do what you love and love what you do. Don't do anything for money. Everything should be for love. Ray Bradbury

To bring yourself love and happiness, do what you can to bring them to others. Deepak Chopra

Wish chastely, and love dearly. William Shakespeare

If anyone conceives, that an object of his love joins itself to another with closer bonds of friendship than he himself has attained to, he will be affected with hatred towards the loved object and with envy towards his rival. Baruch Spinoza

He who lives according to the guidance of reason strives as much as possible to repay the hatred, anger, or contempt of others towards himself with love or generosity. ...hatred is increased by reciprocal hatred, and, on the other hand, can be extinguished by love, so that hatred passes into love. Baruch Spinoza

The value of love will always be stronger than the value of hate. Any nation or group of nations which employs hatred eventually is torn to pieces by hatred... Franklin D Roosevelt

Our schoolbooks glorify war and conceal its horrors. They indoctrinate children with hatred. I would teach peace rather than war, love rather than hate. Albert Einstein

Out of hate, if you try to love that love will just be a hidden hate; it cannot be anything else-you are full of hate. Go to the preachers and they will say, "Try to love." They are talking nonsense because how can a person who is full of hate try to love? If he tries to love, this love will come out of hatred; it will be poisoned already, poisoned from the very source. And this is what the misery of all preachers is. Rajneesh

The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference. Indifference creates evil. Hatred is evil itself. Indifference is what allows evil to be strong, what gives it power. Elie Wiesel

Peace and love are ever in us, being and working; but we be not alway in peace and in love. Julian of Norwich

To put more faith in lies and hate than truth and love, is the true atheism. James Russell Lowell

We must remember that any oppression, any injustice, any hatred, is a wedge designed to attack our civilization. Franklin D Roosevelt

It is to the credit of human nature that, except where its selfishness is brought into play, it loves more readily than it hates. Nathaniel Hawthorne

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." - by Mohandas K. Gandhi - Mahatma Gandhi

God and love are identical, and one who has divine love has received God. Meher Baba

I've seen hatred and I have seen love. And love is more powerful. Immaculee Ilibagiza

We humans have existed in our present form for about a hundred thousand years. I believe that if during this time the human mind had been primarily controlled by anger and hatred, our overall population would have decreased. But today, despite all our wars, we find that the human population is greater than ever. This clearly indicates to me that love and compassion predominate in the world. And this is why unpleasant events are "news"; compassionate activities are so much a part of daily life that they are taken for granted and , therefore, largely ignored. Dalai Lama

Love is the master-key that opens the gates of happiness, of hatred, of jealousy, and, most easily of all, the gate of fear. Oliver Wendell Holmes
