"Le moi est haïssable" (English: “The I is hateful”) is a dictum by Blaise Pascal from the Pensées. The concept is sometimes translated in English as "the hateful I."

Fuller fragment:

"Self is hateful. You, Miton, conceal it; you do not for that reason destroy it; you are, then, always hateful."

Miton is a man of fashion in Paris known to Pascal.
