Misanthropy is a hatred or distrust of the human race, or a disposition to dislike and mistrust other people.

Quotes[edit]

  • My hate is general, I detest all men;
    Some because they are wicked and do evil,
    Others because they tolerate the wicked,
    Refusing them the active vigorous scorn
    Which vice should stimulate in virtuous minds.
  • I am misanthropos, and hate mankind
    For thy part, I do wish thou wert a dog
    That I might love thee something.


Disputed[edit]

  • I don't have prejudice, I hate everyone equally.
    • Attributed to H. L. Mencken, in The Mammoth Book of Jokes (2006) edited by Geoff Tibbals; no earlier citation yet located.
