Misanthropy is a hatred or distrust of the human race, or a disposition to dislike and mistrust other people.
- I am misanthropos, and hate mankind/For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog/That I might love thee something.
- Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind
- Italian poet Giacomo Leopardi 1798-1837
