The greatest hatred, like the greatest virtue and the worst dogs, is silent.

- Jean Paul Friedrich Richter (Johann Paul Richter) (used ps. Jean Paul),
Whom they have injured they also hate.
[Lat., Quos laeserunt et oderunt.]
- Seneca (Lucius Annaeus Seneca), De Ira
(bk. II, ch. 33)
In time we hate that which we often fear.
- William Shakespeare, Antony and Cleopatra
(Charmian at I, iii)
Yet 'tis greater skill
In a true hate to pray they have their will;
The very devils cannot plague them better.
- William Shakespeare, Cymbeline
(Posthumus at II, v)
For I do know the state,
However this may gall him with some check,
Cannot with safety cast him; for he's embarked
With such loud reason to the Cyprus wars,
Which even now stand in act, that for their souls
Another of his fathom they have none
To lead their business; in which regard,
Though I do hate him as I do hell-pains,
Yet, for necessity of present life,
I must show out a flag and sign of love,
Which is indeed but sign.
- William Shakespeare,
Othello the Moor of Venice
(Iago at I, i)
How like a fawning publican he looks.
I hate him for he is a Christian;
But more, for that in low simplicity
He lends out money gratis and brings down
The rate of usance here with us in Venice.
- William Shakespeare,
The Merchant of Venice
(Shylock at I, iii)
Hatred is the coward's revenge for being intimidated.

The hatred of persons related to each other is the most violent.

The hatred of relatives is the most violent.

Hatred is keener than friendship, less keen than love.

Hence, far hence, ye vulgar herd!
[Lat., Procul O procul este profani.]
