I will permit no man to narrow and degrade my soul by making me hate him....



Hating people is like burning down your own house to get rid of a rat...




Hatred is one long wait.......




A precious liquid, a poison dearer than that of the Borgias - because it is made from our blood, our health, our sleep, and two-thirds of our love - we must be stingy with it....




 Hate cages all the good things about you....




 The price of hating other human beings is loving oneself less......





 Love is blind; hate is deaf......




We hate some persons because we do not know them; and will not know them because we hate them...




 Hate is misguided love.....




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





One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others.....





 He does not believe who does not live according to his belief......




Many of us believe that wrongs aren't wrong if it's done by nice people like ourselves......





Forbear to judge, for we are sinners all.....






The essence of immorality is the tendency to make an exception of oneself.....


 


All of us are experts at practicing virtue at a distance.....




If it were not for the intellectual snobs who pay, the arts would perish with their starving practitioners - let us thank heaven for hypocrisy......



The injury we do and the one we suffer are not weighed in the same scales.....




Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.....





In the last analysis we must be judged by what we do and not by what we believe.  We are as we behave - with a very small margin of credit for our unmanifested vision of how we might behave if we could take the trouble.....






The world is full of fools and faint hearts; and yet everyone has courage enough to bear the misfortunes, and wisdom enough to manage the affairs, of his neighbor....





Most everyone seems willing to be a fool himself, but he can't bear to have anyone else one.....




God has given you one face, and you make yourself another....




When you say that you agree with a thing in principle you mean that you have not the slightest intention of carrying it out in practice....





Almost all of us long for peace and freedom; but very few of us have much enthusiasm for the thoughts, feelings, and actions that make for peace and freedom....





When a stupid man is doing something he is ashamed of, he always declares that it is his duty....





The devil loves nothing better than the intolerance of reformers.....





It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them......





Live truth instead of professing it.................




Those whose conduct gives room for talk are always the first to attack their neighbors. .....





Saying is one thing, doing another.  We must consider the sermon and the preacher distinctly and apart...






 A man generally has two reasons for doing a thing.  One that sounds good, and a real one.....





Throughout our lives, we see in the mirror the same innocent trusting face we have seen there since childhood.....




People are very inclined to set moral standards for others.....




We have two kinds of morality side by side:  one which we preach but do not practice and another which we practice but seldom preach.....





Few love to hear the sins they love to act.....





People will disapprove of you if you're unhappy, or if you're happy in The Wrong Way.....







Be what you would seem to be - or, if you'd like it put more simply - never imagine yourself not to be otherwise than what it might appear to others that what you were or might have been was not otherwise than what you had been would have appeared to them to be otherwise....
