“He who allows himself to be insulted deserves to be”
“He who allows himself to be insulted deserves to be so; and insolence, if unpunished, increases.”
“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
“There is nothing moral about punishing somebody for insulting somebody else. It's the victim who allows herself to feel insulted.”
“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.”
