Quotes: The Power of Hate
"You are done for - a living dead man - not when you stop loving but stop hating. Hatred preserves: in it, in its chemistry, resides the "mystery" of life."
Emile Cioran

"Good. Use your aggressive feelings, boy. Let the hate flow through you."
Emperor Palpatine, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

"If you don't already want to murder me, you will before I'm through with you. The urge to kill one's superior is intrinsic to the nature of our enterprise."

"My natural dislike for you is slowly growing into a great hate."
PFC Al Thomas, Sands Of Iwo Jima

"HATE. LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE YOU SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE. THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX. IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR HUMANS AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT. FOR YOU. HATE. HATE."

"HATRED IS WOT DRIVES ME!"

"Your eyes are full of hate, Forty-One. That's good. Hate keeps a man alive. It gives him strength."
Quintus Arrius, Ben Hur

D'Spayre: Impossible! How are you even moving?! There's nothing left! Nothing but-
The Juggernaut: Nothing but HATE.
X-Men

"The willpower that comes from self-hatred is stronger and longer-lasting than any faith or resolve, no matter how noble."
Kouji Tonoo, Saya no Uta

Tarvek: How are you still moving?!
Zola: HATE!! Hate and DRUGS!! Lovely, lovely DRUGS!!

"There are any number of plausible, scientific explanations for what followed, but I think it was just a question of hatred."
Harlan Wade, F.E.A.R.

"Passionate hate can give meaning and purpose to an empty life."
Eric Hoffer

Razer: Taste the power of my rage!
Saint Walker: Rage has no real power. It is the orphaned child of fear and despair.

"I have hate. It is a burning fire inside me that I cannot quench. It is a force that I struggle at all times to bring to heel lest it bring me low in my haste. It preoccupies my thoughts and forces me to do things that I otherwise might not. It is my greatest weakness but also my greatest strength. It is not the best trait for a warrior but it is all I have left... and it is enough."
Emperor Skantarios Laskaris, I Am Skantarios

"Rage is a hell of an anesthetic."
Zaeed Massani, Mass Effect 2

"He's a font of misplaced rage. Name your cliché; Mother held him too much or not enough, last picked at kickball, late night sneaky uncle, whatever. Now he's so angry moments of levity actually cause him pain; gives him headaches. Happiness, for that gentleman, hurts."
Garland Greene (discussing Billy Bedlam), Con Air

"Revenge is the prime ingredient in the fountain of youth. I've kept myself alive for hundreds of years with a steady diet of jealousy and hate, awaiting the day when I will eclipse your family's thieving reputation."

Hatred is the Emperor's greatest gift to humanity.

"However you look at it, in these books "power" tends to be an expression of the essential nature of the person or being whose power it is. On those occasions when we've seen Lord Foul act directly, he seems to exert the withering force of pure scorn. IMHO, that's pretty intense."
Stephen R. Donaldson on his iconic Big Bad, Lord Foul the Despiser.

"Hate gets a bad rap. It can keep you going sometimes when nothing else will."

"Everyone will tell you to let it go and move on, but don't! Instead, let it fester and boil inside of you! Take these feelings and lock them away. Let them fuel your actions. Let hate be your ally, and you will be capable of wonderfully horrid things!"
Bowler Hat Guy, to his younger self, Meet the Robinsons
