and wouldn't you love to love her?

"We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make our world.... In this world hate never yet dispelled hate. Only love dispels hate. This is the law, ancient and inexhaustible." ~ from the Dhammapada

"We must meet hate with love. We must meet physical force with soul force. There is still a voice crying out through the vista of time, saying: Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, pray for them that despitefully use you. Then and only then can you matriculate into the university of eternal life. That same voice cries out in terms lifted to cosmic proportions: he who lives by the sword will perish by the sword. And history is replete with the bleached bones of nations that failed to follow this command. We must follow nonviolence and love." ~ Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
