Quote:“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”     — James Baldwin    

“If someone isn’t what others want them to be, the others become angry. Everyone seems to have a clear idea about how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.” —The Alchemist

“Hatred does not cease through hatred at any time. Hatred ceases through love. This is an unalterable law.” — Buddha

“You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”
— Henry Drummond

“I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.” —Martin Luther King, Jr.End quote.

p.s. I had to google to make sure that Henry Drummond wasn’t the dad on Different Strokes.  He definitely was not.
