Before you start reading these quotes, the question is what is hatred and where does it come from?
Hatred is an emotion that can be caused by a variety of things. It can be the result of hurt, anger, or even fear. In its simplest form, hatred is the intense feeling of dislike for someone or something. Furthermore, hatred can also be much more complicated than that. Hatred can drive people to act in ways that they never would have thought possible. Hatred can be destructive, both to the person who feels it (emotionally and physically) and to those who are on the receiving end. It is often said that hatred is a strong word, and that is certainly true. But it is also an emotion that should not be taken lightly.
