SCORN
[ Also see Anger Contempt Despise Malice Satire Sneer ]

He will laugh thee to scorn.
      - Bible, Ecclesiasticus (Apocrypha)
         (ch. XIII, v. 7)

So let him stand, through ages yet unborn,
  Fix'd statue on the pedestal of Scorn.
      - Lord Byron (George Gordon Noel Byron),
        Curse of Minerva (l. 206)

Infamous wretch! so much below my scorn,
  I dare not kill thee.
      - John Dryden

A dismal, universal hiss, the sound of public scorn.
      - John Milton

He hears
  On all sides, from innumerable tongues
    A dismal universal hiss, the sound
      Of public scorn.
      - John Milton, Paradise Lost (bk. X, l. 506)

Alas! to make me
  The fixed figure of the time, for scorn
    To point his slow and moving finger at.
      - William Shakespeare

But, alas, to make me
  A fixed figure for the time of scorn
    To point his slow unmoving finger at!
      - William Shakespeare,
        Othello the Moor of Venice
         (Othello at IV, ii)

O, what a deal of scorn looks beautiful
  In the contempt and anger of his lip.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Twelfth Night, or, What You Will
         (Olivia at III, i)

Thou mayst from law, but not from scorn escape. The pointed finger, cold, averted eye, insulted virtue's hiss, thou canst not fly.
      - Charles Sprague

To mortify and even to injure an opponent, reproach him with the very defect or vice you feel in yourself.
      - Ivan Sergeyevich Turgenev
