Dislike Vs Hate Quotations

Dislike and Hate – how do they differ? Dislike is a feeling of aversion. Hate is an emotion of extreme hostility.

I really, really dislike Brussels Sprouts and cleaning toilets. I can’t think of anything I hate.

How about you – anything you strongly dislike so much that you feel hostile towards it?

A man who lives, not by what he loves but what he hates, is a sick man.

Dislike of another’s opinions and beliefs neither justifies our own nor makes us more certain of them: and to transfer the repugnance to the person himself is a mark of a vulgar mind.

I do know how to treat people and that is treat them the way I want to be treated.

Some of the senators have even said words to the effect to me of “I can’t dislike you as much as I wish that I did”.

I never yet heard man or woman much abused, that I was not inclined to think the better of them; and to transfer any suspicion or dislike, to the person who appeared to take delight in pointing out the defects of a fellow-creature.
– Jane Porter –

Isn’t it kind of silly to think that tearing someone else down builds you up?

We can’t control the filters that others choose when they look at us.
– Rachel Wolchin –

We make up any excuse to preserve myths about people we love, but the reverse is also true; if we dislike an individual we adamantly resist changing our opinion, even when somebody offers proof of his decency, because it’s vital to have myths about both the gods and devils in our lives.
– Marlon Brando –

When you really know somebody you can’t hate them. Or maybe it’s just that you can’t really know them until you stop hating them.
– Orson Scott Card –

    1. I had to look that guy up! His philosophy was “centered on people being honest about their negative feelings… to avoid negative conflict by bringing such differences out in the open, rather than creating situations where people rob or con one another for what they want.”
      Sounds like a good idea.

    1. I don’t like housework either, though I really enjoy the result when I’m done. That’s the upside of only doing it when it visually really should be done!
      There is sure a lot to NOT like about how governments and media have reacted to COVID!

  1. These really are good. I do love quotations. One of my favourite ones about hatred is — Hate is like drinking poison and expecting the other guy to die. There are all kinds of variations of this – resentment, anger etc.

    1. So true! Also like the one about carrying around ‘hot coals’ of hate, resentment, etc. The only person who gets burned is the one carrying the coals.

  2. Love the quotes. I also love brussel sprouts and cleaning toilets (bathrooms actually) – it takes ten minutes to get from disgusting to sparkly fresh and clean. 😊. I don’t think I HATE anything or anyone. Some things and people are rather annoying. 🥺

  3. Interesting question — Do I hate anything? Hmm.
    Can you hate hate? (Especially in myself!) I try to live without it and I find the easiest way to do that is stay open minded.
    Love the quotes, especially the Churchill one. 🙂

    1. You know what ‘they’ say about an open mind – don’t be so open-minded that everything in it falls out… I’m sure there are quotes that encourage open-mindedness – the yin and yan of everything.
