hate

It’d be better if he were easier to hate.

Suzanne Collins, Catching Fire

I feel like I owe him something, and I hate owing people. Maybe if I had thanked him at some point, I’d be feeling less conflicted now. I thought about it a couple of times, but the opportunity never seemed to present itself. And now it never will. Because we’re going to be thrown into an arena to fight to the death. Exactly how am I supposed to work in a thank-you in there? Somehow it just won’t seem sincere if I’m trying to slit his throat.

Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Objects that don’t exist don’t exist. If we were to imagine such a thing as an object that didn’t exist, it would be that thing that God hated. This is the strongest argument against the nonbeliever. If God didn’t exist, he would have to hate himself, and that is obviously nonsense.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

I am doing something I hate for you. This is what it means to be in love.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

This is love, she thought, isn’t it? When you notice someone’s absence and hate that absence more than anything? More, even, than you love his presence?

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

One day you will do things for me that you hate. That is what it means to be family.

Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated

The problem, of course, was that Baba saw the world in black and white. And he got to decide what was black and what was white. You can’t love a person who lives that way without fearing him too. Maybe even hating him a little.

Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner

The things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.

John Steinbeck, Cannery Row

I’m shy, paranoid, whatever word you want to use. I hate fame. I’ve done everything I can to avoid it.

Johnny Depp

Sometimes I think I was born backwards, you know came out my mum the wrong way. I hear words go past me backwards. The people I should love I hate, and the people I hate…

Effy, Skins
