Many men are loved by their enemies, and hated by their friends, and are the friends of their enemies, and the enemies of their friends.
Another reason why we must love our enemies is that hate scars the soul and distorts the personality.
I don't have time to hate people who hate me, because I'm too busy loving the people who love me.
It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.
By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.
It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.
