Bitterness Quotations

Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.
Maya Angelou

Never succumb to the temptation of bitterness.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Bitterness is cancer - it eats upon the host. It doesn't do anything to the object of its displeasure.
Maya Angelou

Disappointment is inevitable. But to become discouraged, there's a choice I make. God would never discourage me. He would always point me to himself to trust him. Therefore, my discouragement is from Satan. As you go through the emotions that we have, hostility is not from God, bitterness, unforgiveness, all of these are attacks from Satan.
Charles Stanley

Nelson Mandela
