paranoia

“Be assured those will be thy worst enemies, not to whom thou hast done evil, but who have done evil to thee. And those will be thy best friends, not to whom thou hast done good, but who have done good to thee.” (Tacitus)
“Men are more ready to repay an injury than a benefit, because gratitude is a burden and revenge a pleasure.” (Tacitus)
“If you would know who controls you see who you may not criticise.” (Tacitus)
“It is a principle of nature to hate those whom you have injured.” (Tacitus)
“It is exactly the fear of revenge that motivates the deepest crimes, from the killing of the enemy’s children lest they grow up to play their own part, to the erasure of the enemy’s graveyards and holy places so that his hated name can be forgotten.”

(Christopher Hitchens)
