Quotable Sunday - #12


Toni at A Daily Dose of Toni hosts Quotable Sunday each week. This week I have decided to do quotes on hate, as I am currently the "victim" of a cyber bully who hates me for no apparent reason. This guy logs on just to harass me!!

A rattlesnake, if cornered, will become so angry it will bite itself. That is exactly what the harboring of hate and resentment against others is - a biting of oneself. We think we are harming others in holding these spites and hates, but the deeper harm is to ourselves.
-E. Stanley Jones

Hate less, live longer.
-Ivy Culler

Always remember others may hate you but those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.
-Richard M. Nixon

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

I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

These are all so true. Hate ends up literally eating away at the person harboring the hate. Sorry to hear you've got a bully. I've had them too :(

Hate destroys the hater. Okay, it's not too good for the victim, either! I'm not quite up on how blogspot works. Do you have a filter that will allow you to have this bully's comments directed straight to your spam folder?

I wish you saftey and your cyber bully peace.

I am saving this quote because it sums up my philosophy so well.

I too am currently being harassed by someone online. Sadly this is a man who harmed me in my past & is now using the internet to inflict more pain. People like that are just sad.

Great quote choices - my favorite is:

-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Here's hoping your cyber bully leaves you alone soon! ((HUGZ!!))

This is my favorite. I'm sorry to hear about this situation. Email me if you need someone to vent to, get advise from or just someone to listen.
