Literary Lines–August 20

“You treat hatred like a fine wine.  Believing it gets better with age.  Never expires.  Doesn’t go bad.  But that’s the thing about hatred.  It can become rancid.  And it will turn into poison if you keep it bottled too long.  Hatred will eat through any container, and seep into the groundwater of the soul.  Revenge is never enough to expel it because it keeps bubbling up anew.”

–from Michael J. Sullivan’s Age of Swords
