A Few Propositions #2: Hatred

There is no neutrality between gratitude and ingratitude. 
Those who are not grateful soon begin to complain of 
everything. Those who do not love, hate. In the spiritual 
life there is no such thing as indifference to love or hate. 
That is why tepidity (which seems to be indifferent) is so 
detestable. It is hate disguised as love.

-- Thomas Merton
Thoughts in Solitude, p 41
