Resentment is often a woman's inner signal that she has been ignoring an important God-given responsibility - that of making choices.
Charles F. Glassman
The elimination diet:Remove anger, regret, resentment, guilt, blame, and worry.Then watch your health, and life, improve.
Debasish Mridha
The worst enemy in life is resentment.
Debasish Mridha
You can never win resentment with an argument
Debasish Mridha
To forgive is to be free from past resentment to welcome the dawn of peace.
Debasish Mridha
Never dwell in resentment, but never forget to learn from the reflection.
Debasish Mridha
We will not be able to find peace if our minds are burning with the fires of resentment. Let us forgive and forget to create peace.
Debasish Mridha
Anger is a fire of resentment which will burn the bearer and not the receiver.
Donald L. Hicks
At the heart of all anger, all grudges, and all resentment, you'll always find a fear that hopes to stay anonymous.
Donna Goddard
Your body would not get sick if you held no thought of resentment. It is neither good nor bad of itself. If we hold anything against anyone, we will suffer ourselves.
Graham Austin-King
Can I help you? he said, in a manner which indicated very clearly that not only did he not wish to help them, but also that he resented the implication that he ought to
Iain Pears
Odd, don't you think? I have seen war, and invasions and riots. I have heard of massacres and brutalities beyond imagining, and I have kept my faith in the power of civilization to bring men back from the brink. And yet one women writes a letter, and my whole world falls to pieces.You see, she is an ordinary woman. A good one, even. That's the point ... Nothing [a recognizably bad person does] can surprise or shock me, or worry me. But she denounced Julia and sent her to her death because she resented her, and because Julia is a Jew.I thought in this simple contrast between the civilized and the barbaric, but I was wrong. It is the civilized who are the truly barbaric, and the [Nazi] Germans are merely the supreme expression of it.
Isaac Asimov
Imagine the people who believe such things and who are not ashamed to ignore, totally, all the patient findings of thinking minds through all the centuries since the Bible was written. And it is these ignorant people, the most uneducated, the most unimaginative, the most unthinking among us, who would make themselves the guides and leaders of us all; who would force their feeble and childish beliefs on us; who would invade our schools and libraries and homes. I personally resent it bitterly.
Isabel Lopez
I eventually came to understand that in harboring the anger, the bitterness and resentment towards those that had hurt me, I was giving the reins of control over to them. Forgiving was not about accepting their words and deeds. Forgiving was about letting go and moving on with my life. In doing so, I had finally set myself free.
Jordan B Peterson
I knew this guy he'd been in a motorcycle accident and it really ruined him and he was a linesman working on the power and he was working with someone who had Parkinsons so they both had complimentary inadeqacies and so two of them could do the job of one person so they're out there fixing powerlines in the freezing cold despite the fact that one was three quarters wrecked and the other one had Parkinsons That's how our civilization works, there's all these ruined people out there they've got problems like you can't believe, off they go to work to do things they don't even like and look! The Lights Are On

Kemi Sogunle
Without forgiveness and love, you will live with resentment, bitterness, malice and strife which result in more pain. You can never love without forgiving. Forgiveness deepens your ability to love and frees you from pain.
Lailah Gifty Akita
Resentment lies in the heart of fools.
Lailah Gifty Akita
Resentment leads to rude behaviour.
lauren klarfeld
If we love someone deeply, be they friends, family or lovers, don't treat the relationship like a playground game of back and forth or tit for tat. See it as a loving connection and let that be the basis of it all.
Mike Norton
Never hold resentments for the person who tells you what you need to hear; count them among your truest, most caring, and valuable friends.
Mike Norton
The bittersweet about truth is that nothing could be more hurtful, yet nothing could be more helpful.
Narcotics Anonymous
Do we really want to be rid of our resentments, our anger, our fear? Many of us cling to our fears, doubts, self-loathing or hatred because there is a certain distorted security in familiar pain. It seems safer to embrace what we know than to let go of it for fear of the unknown. (Narcotics Anonymous Book/page 33)
Neel Burton
Resentment is a powerful and corrosive force, both on the slippery left and the slippery right, and the history of humankind can largely be read as a history of resentment. Aside from a profound philosophy of capital, what we really need is a profound psychology and philosophy of resentment. We must learn to live for ourselves, without reference to the other, and, at the same time, to rise above and beyond ourselves. Or else history will keep repeating itself, and our life will be a living death.
Rick Riordan
Leo lowered his screwdriver. He looked at the ceiling and shook his head like, What am I gonna do with this guy? I try very hard to be annoying, Leo said. Don't insult my ability to annoy. And how am I supposed to resent you if you go apologizing? I'm a lowly mechanic. You're like the prince of the sky, son of the Lord of the Universe. I'm supposed to resent you. Lord of the Universe? (Jason) Sure, you're all-bam! Lightning man. And 'Watch me fly. I am the eagle that soars- (Leo) Shut up, Valdez. (Jason) Leo managed a little smile. Yeah, see. I do annoy you. I apologize for apologizing. (Jason) Thank you. He went back to work, but the tension had eased between them. Leo still looked sad and exhausted-just not quite so angry.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
But yester-night I prayed aloud In anguish and in agony, Up-starting from the fiendish crowd Of shapes and thoughts that tortured me: A lurid light, a trampling throng, Sense of intolerable wrong, And whom I scorned, those only strong! Thirst of revenge, the powerless will Still baffled, and yet burning still! Desire with loathing strangely mixed On wild or hateful objects fixed. Fantastic passions! maddening brawl! And shame and terror over all! Deeds to be hid which were not hid, Which all confused I could not know Whether I suffered, or I did: For all seemed guilt, remorse or woe, My own or others still the same Life-stifling fear, soul-stifling shame.
Shannon L. Alder
Time doesn't heal all wounds, only distance can lessen the sting of them.
Shannon L. Alder
Anger, resentment and jealousy doesn't change the heart of others-- it only changes yours.
Sharon Salzberg
Once we are honest about our feelings, we can invite ourselves to consider alternative modes of viewing our pain and can see that releasing our grip on anger and resentment can actually be an act of self-compassion.
Sharon Salzberg
Even as we recognize our resentment, bitterness, or jealousy, we can also honor our own wish to be happy, to feel free.
Steve Maraboli
Let today be the day you stop being haunted by the ghost of yesterday. Holding a grudge & harboring anger/resentment is poison to the soul. Get even with people...but not those who have hurt us, forget them, instead get even with those who have helped us.

If you hold a candle close to you, its flame rises. And if you hold it away from you, its flame shrinks. The same way you hold a candle close to you, keep all your plans, aspirations, projects, and dreams close to you too. Do not share your plans or goals until you complete them, because as you hold your candle away from you

O Heavenly Children, the stories you have concocted in God's name have angered Him; for he would never instigate war between brothers, or encourage tribes to harbor resentment towards one another. He prefers the man who loves over the one who hates. And the man who spreads kindness, peace and knowledge, over the one who spreads lies, fear and terror

Pain will never lessen without forgiveness, it will only manifest as anger and harden into resentment or bitterness.
William Barrett
If science could comprehend all phenomena so that eventually in a thoroughly rational society human beings became as predictable as cogs in a machine, then man, driven by this need to know and assert his freedom, would rise up and smash the machine. What the reformers of the Enlightenment, dreaming of a perfect organization of society, had overlooked, Dostoevski saw all too plainly with the novelist's eye: namely, that as modern society becomes more organized and hence more bureaucratized it piles up at its joints petty figures like that of the Underground Man, who beneath their nondescript surface are monsters of frustration and resentment.
