What valor were it, when a cur doth grin, for one to thrust his hand between his teeth, when he might spurn him with his foot away?
      - William Shakespeare

Call me what instrument you will, though you can fret me, you cannot play upon me.
      - William Shakespeare,
        Hamlet Prince of Denmark
         (Hamlet at III, ii)

I had rather chop this hand off at a blow
  And with the other fling it at thy face
    Than bear so low a sail to strike to thee.
      - William Shakespeare,
        King Henry the Sixth, Part III
         (Warwick at V, i)

Contempt naturally implies a man's esteeming of himself greater than the person whom he contemns; he therefore that slights, that contemns an affront is properly superior to it; and he conquers an injury who conquers his resentments of it. Socrates, being kicked by an ass, did not think it a revenge proper for Socrates to kick the ass again.
      - Bishop Robert South

There is no action in the behavior of one man toward another of which human nature is more impatient than of contempt, it being the undervaluing of a man upon a belief of his utter uselessness and inability.
      - Bishop Robert South

Contempt leaves a deeper scar than anger.
      - Unknown

I have unlearned contempt; it is a sin that is engendered earliest in the soul, and doth beset it like a poison worm feeding on all its beauty.
      - Nathaniel Parker Willis

He who feels contempt for any living thing hath faculties that he hath never used, and thought with him is in its infancy.
      - William Wordsworth

Contempt is frequently regulated by fashion.
      - Johann Georg von Zimmermann
