William Congreve

Heaven has no rage, like love to hatred turned,
Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorned.
(From his 1697 play, The Mourning Bride.  The second line is very familiar, but the first line should not be overlooked.  Tomorrow is Valentine's Day -- have you finished your shopping yet?)

"Love to hatred turned"?
