A Quote by Kare Anderson on anger, resentment, revenge, and peace

Holding onto your anger is like clutching a vibrating pole. The harder you clench, the more every part of your being vibrates in reaction.

A Quote by Ayn Rand on resentment, envy, respect, and adulation

Miss Taggart, do you know the hallmark of the second - rater?  It's resentment of another man's achievement.  Those touchy mediocrities who sit trembling lest someone's work prove greater than their own -- they have no inkling of the lonliness that comes when you reach the top.  The lonliness for an equal - for a mind to respect and an achievement to admire.  They bare their teeth at you from out of their rat holes, thinking you take pleasure in letting your brilliance dim them - while you'd give a year of your life to see a flicker of talent anywhere among them.  They envy achievement, and their dream of greatness is a world where all men have become their acknowledged inferiors.  They don't know that that dream is infallible proof of mediocrity, because that sort of world is what the man of achievement would not be able to bear.  They have no way of knowing what he feels when surrounded by inferiors - hatred?  No, not hatred, but boredom - the terrible, hopeless, draining, paralyzing boredom.  Of what account are praise and adulation from men whom you don't respect?  Have you ever felt the longing for someone you could admire?  For something, not to look down at, but up to?

A Quote by Stephen R. Covey on anger, cynicism, disappointment, disillusionment, emotion, feeling, meaning, people, quality, relationships, and resentment

Lose/Win people bury a lot of feelings. And unexpressed feelings come forth later in uglier ways. Psychosomatic illnesses often are the reincarnation of cumulative resentment, deep disappointment and disillusionment repressed by the Lose/Win mentality. Disproportionate rage or anger, overreaction to minor provocation, and cynicism are other embodiments of suppressed emotion. People who are constantly repressing, not transcending feelings toward a higher meaning find that it affects the quality of their relationships with others.

Stephen Covey (1932 -)

A Quote by William T. Ham on body, christ, christianity, god, heart, life, love, relationships, and resentment

There are many things which a person can do alone, but being a Christian is not one of them. As the Christian life is, above all things, a state of union with Christ, and of union of his followers with one another, love of the brethren is inseparable from love of God. Resentment toward any human being cannot exist in the same heart with love to God. The personal relationship to Christ can only be realized when one has "come to himself" as a member of His Body, the Christian fellowship.

A Quote by Peter Marshall on destruction, god, and resentment

If you hug to yourself any resentment against anybody else, you destroy the bridge by which God would come to you.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on cities, emotion, god, impulses, proverbs, resentment, and selfishness

Submissiveness to God enables us to govern ourselves. . . . Lacking this capacity we vulnerable, like "a city which is broken down, and without walls" (Proverbs 25:28). We are vulnerable if we can be taken by a wave of emotion, invaded by an invidious impulse, roughed up by resentment, or engulfed by a surge of selfishness.

Neal Maxwell (1926 -)
