“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hate is lazy thinking and emotion’s ugly child. It takes effort to understand others, to see why they do what they do. Love takes effort, and that effort counters the entropic deterioration of thought and feeling that declines into hate.
Invest yourself to love others, and the hate and darkness will diminish.
