Ιf you only knew

If you hate your enemy, you show how stupid you are. Because if your enemy’s hunting you, you’re also hunting him inside yourself. And tell me, isn’t hunting the worst and most brutal persecution, with hatred for your enemy tormenting you? Ah, if only you knew what a triumph and what a blessing it is to love your enemies and to be a benefactor for them.
