“The way to procure insults is to submit to them: a man meets with no more respect than he exacts.”
“An eye can threaten like a loaded and levelled gun, or it can insult like hissing or kicking; or, in its altered mood, by beams of kindness, it can make the heart dance for joy”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I love it when someone insults me. That means that I don't have to be nice anymore.”
“A wise man is superior to any insults which can be put upon him, and the best reply to unseemly behavior is patience and moderation.”
“The only graceful way to accept an insult is to ignore it; if you can't ignore it, top it. If you can't top it, laugh at it. If you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.”
J. Russell Lynes
“He insulted me, he cheated me, he beat me, he robbed me' - those who are free of resentful thoughts surely find peace.”
“To like an individual because he's black is just as insulting as to dislike him because he isn't white.”
E. E. Cummings
