    Some words

    Hi, I'm drawing this picture and thought that I would add some Russian words to float around on it. I'm not sure of the rules of the Russian language but I wanted these words to be on it.

    Love
    Hate

    War
    Peace

    Death
    Life

    Compassion
    Hatred

    Thanks a bunch.

    Любовь
    Ненависть

    Война
    Мир

    Смерть
    Жизнь

    Сострадание
    Ненависть...is there a difference between "hate" and "hatred" in Russian? I mean, they mean the same thing in English, it's just that sometimes one sounds better than the other.

    I am not 100% certain on those last two; can someone else confirm?

    Yes, the last one doesn't seem right. I would say the opposite of compassion is not hatred, but antipathy or enmity (отвращение or вражда).
