"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 would finally eclipse your family's thieving reputation."
― Clockwerk to Sly Cooper
"Do you hate? The most powerful hate is not born out of ignorance or prejudice or a perceived threat. Those three are fear in disguise. The fury that fuels my corps ignites from personal pain. Those whose lives were ravaged by greed, lust and control wield the crimson light. The rings replaced our damaged hearts. They beat for them. And they keep us alive only to hate. But at least we live."
― Atrocitus (DC Comics)
"The only thing that can be inherited from the dead is the sword of hatred."
― Madara Uchiha (Naruto Shippuden)
"That hate is his greatest weapon, his friend and the source of his power! Hatred is Sasuke's ninja way."
