- I hate mankind, for I think myself one of the best of them, and I know how bad I am.
- I am now quite cured of seeking pleasure in society, be it country or town. A sensible man ought to find sufficient company in himself.
- Mr. Lockwood in Emily Brontë's Wuthering Heights (Ch. III).
- My hate is general, I detest all men;
Some because they are wicked and do evil,
Others because they tolerate the wicked,
Refusing them the active vigorous scorn
Which vice should stimulate in virtuous minds.
- I am misanthropos, and hate mankind
For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog
That I might love thee something.
- Timon will to the woods; where he shall find
The unkindest beast more kinder than mankind.
The gods confound — hear me, you good gods all —
The Athenians both within and out that wall!
And grant, as Timon grows, his hate may grow
To the whole race of mankind, high and low!
