From Project Mailer

The interesting confirmation of this is that what we have always disliked about saints is that they are not haters. They love everyone. But this is intolerable to the social sense which consists of the spectrum of things detested absolutely to things admired absolutely. A saint has no discrimination we feel and so we get fed up with him. Psychopaths, of course, are always seen by society as hating everyone and everything. We speak of them as being filled with hate. And that is their connection to saints. They are truly saints reversed. But I wonder if hatred is not precisely the interruption, the severing, of the connection between the heart (the soul, the H), and the mind. Good old S in between.
