“A short letter to a distant friend is, in my opinion, an insult like that of a slight bow or cursory salutation”
“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.”
“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
“An injury is much sooner forgotten than an insult.”
