Cruelty Quotes

Six of the best book quotes about cruelty
  1. #1
    ″‘People tend to overestimate my character,’ I say quietly. ‘They think that because I’m small, or a girl, or a Stiff, I can’t possibly be cruel. But they’re wrong.‘”
  2. #2
    “My doctrine is this, that if we see
    cruelty or wrong that we have the
    power to stop, and do nothing, we
    make ourselves sharers in the guilt.”
  3. #3
    “It seems like at some point you’d run out of awful.”
  4. #4
    “I could tolerate any form of cruelty better than kindness. Praise was a poison to me; I choked on it.”
  5. #5
    “I must be cruel only to be kind;
    Thus bad begins, and worse remains behind.”
  6. #6
    “You teach me now how cruel you’ve been—cruel and false. Why did you despise me? Why did you betray your own heart, Cathy? I have not one word of comfort.”
