His embarassment would have pleased me, but once he recovered, there would be that awkward period that sometimes culminates in a handshake. I didn't want to touch these people's hands or see things from their point of view, i just wanted to continue hating them. So i kept my mouth shut and stared off into space.
To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another--that is surely the basic instinct. Baser even than hate, the thing with teeth, which can be stilled with a tone of voice or stunned by beauty. If the whole world of the living has to turn on the single point of remaining alive, that pointed endurance is the poetry of hope. The thing with feathers.
Their constant yelping about a free press means, with a few honorable exceptions, freedom to peddle scandal, crime, sex, sensationalism, hate, innuendo and the political and financial uses of propaganda. A newspaper is a business out to make money through advertising revenue. That is predicated on the circulation and you know what circulation depends on.
I hate gucci,' said francis. 'do you?' said henry, glancing up from his reverie. 'really? I think it's rather grand.' 'come on, henry.' 'well, it's so expensive, but it's so ugly too, isn't it? I think they make it ugly on purpose. And yet people buy it out of sheer perversity.' 'i don't see what you think is grand about that.' 'anything is grand if it's done on a large enough scale,' said henry.
I have never heard enough classical music to be able to enjoy it; & the simple truth is, i detest it. Not mildly, but will all my heart. To me an opera is the very climax & cap-stone of the absurd, the fantastic the unjustifiable. I hate the very name of opera - partly because of the nights of suffering i have endured in its presence, & partly because i want to love it and can't.

I'm friends with a lot of writers and so many of them say how much they hate signings and how they leave after a certain period of time. But what is so hard about sitting there while people tell you how much they love you? And if you don't like it, well, learn to like it. I try to take one person at a time. I never look down the line to see how many more people are left. And i always try to make people talk about something besides whatever they planned to say.
I believe that a negative statement is poison.I'm convinced that the negative has power. It lives. And if you allow it to perch in your house, in your mind, in your life, it can take you over. So when the rude or cruel thing is said - the lambasting, the gay bashing, the hate - i say, "take it all out of my house!" those negative words climb into the woodwork and into the furniture, and the next thing you know they'll be on my skin.
I'm all over the place, up and down, scattered, withdrawing, trying to find some elusive sense of serenity." the world can't give that serenity. The world can't give us peace. We can only find it in our hearts." i hate that." i know. But the good news is that by the same token, the world can't take it away.
These proceedings may at first seem strange and difficult, but like all other steps which we have already passed over, will in a little time become familiar and agreeable: and until an independence is declared, the continent will feel itself like a man who continues putting off some unpleasant business from day to day, yet knows it must be done, hates to set about it, wishes it over, and is continually haunted with the thoughts of its necessity.
Debt, grinding debt, whose iron face the widow, the orphan, and the sons of genius fear and hate; debt, which consumes so much time, which so cripples and disheartens a great spirit with cares that seem so base, is a preceptor whose lessons cannot be foregone, and is needed most by those who suffer from it most.
The contradiction is somehow unresolved. In the case of the business propaganda, it's particularly ironic because while business wants the population to hate the government, they want the population to love the government. Namely, they're in favor of a very powerful state which works in their interest.
Women intrinsically understand human dynamics, and that makes them unstoppable. Unfortunately, the average man is less adroit at fostering such rivalries, which is why most men remain average; males are better at hating things that can't hate them back (e.G., lawnmowers, cats, the denver broncos, et cetera). They don't see the big picture.
Some think, "if i marry this guy who's two inches taller than i am and who has a nice bank account, i won't die. If i buy six cars, i won't die. If i hate jews, i won't die. If i hate homosexuals, i won't die." they think they will increase their life by shunting misery onto somebody else, but it's just the opposite.
