Not sure. Try not to hate anyone but those I dislike, those of extreme predjudice or bias, I never had respect for in the first place....have to think on that

I think this is often right; my second husband I still hate; but I am working at overcoming this; since hatred also destroys the hater.

absolutely not. Hate is a definite feeling and not the passive thing this axiom makes it sound. Things/people in whom you nolonger believe can be can be slotted away in your mind. Hate, like love, is active, alive.

Hate is too important to be wasted on people. You should hate evil, but not people.

Absolutely, however, I don't think that 'hate is the right word for it.
I think everything is driven by love. 'Hate' (or dislike or whatever the right word is for it) is triggered when something/someone that we love has been hurt or condemned by an outside force. We act out of love because we don't want to see our loved ones hurt, and thus, we channel our anger to the ones that hurt them. I think that's how it starts.. but hate, I think is when the anger we feel becomes too distorted and starts to cloud our judgement.

This reminds me of a Hindu story I once heard.
It's a story about a man in a village, who came out every day to insult the statue of Shiva at the center of the village. The priests would always be there, and would yell at him and try to chase him away. But he would always come back. Every day, at the same time.
Well, one day, there was a terrible storm, and no one wanted to go outside. Even the priests stayed home that day. But that man wouldn't let a storm stop him.
He walked through the lightning and wind, crossing the many miles from his farm, to the center of town, to hurl his insults at the statue.
But when he got there, the statue was gone, and it was Shiva himself who was standing there...and he thanked the man for being the only one who cared enough to come that day. :-)

I think there needs to be more explanation; sometimes little quotes don't explain sufficiently. I'd like to believe that 'darkness is the absence of light', and the light is the most important.

I have hated and loved someone at the same time. To be more clear, I have hated what they said or did, which made me not like them as a person. I still cared about them. Respected them even, but I can't believe in this axiom. I think hate is more than a word.

Interesting logic. I wonder what profound meaning the image holds.

I have heard this before and I am not sure. But, love and hate are both extremely intense emotions. I know that the ones you love the most hurt you the worst, so maybe that is where it is from.

nope... hate isn't dependent on love...you can hate someone without loving him.

This is good but I don't think accurate. You can hate someone who you never loved in the first place. Though in relationship it is truly a thin line between love and hate. But since hate happens across racial lines, religions, and other areas other than romance, than the statement for me is not true.
