„Holding anger is a poison… It eats you from inside… We think that by hating someone we hurt them… But hatred is a curved blade… and the harm we do to others… we also do to ourselves.“

—  Mitch Albom, kniha The Five People You Meet in Heaven

Varianta: Holding anger is a poison. It eats you from inside. We think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. But hatred is a curved blade. And the harm we do, we do to ourselves.

„If the hunters think we do all things by chants and spells, they may believe so — it does not hurt them.“

—  Stephen Vincent Benét, kniha By the Waters of Babylon

By the Waters of Babylon (1937)
Kontext: If the hunters think we do all things by chants and spells, they may believe so — it does not hurt them. I was taught how to read in the old books and how to make the old writings — that was hard and took a long time. My knowledge made me happy — it was like a fire in my heart. Most of all, I liked to hear of the Old Days and the stories of the gods.
