Learning to love. We must learn to love, learn to be kind, and this from earliest youth; if education or chance gives us no opportunity to practice these feelings, our soul becomes dry and unsuited even to understanding the tender inventions of loving people. Likewise, hatred must be learned and nurtured, if one wishes to become a proficient hater; otherwise the germ for that, too, will gradually wither. – Friedrich Nietzsche
I find great comfort in this. We can learn to love. We can learn empathy and compassion. This is why there is hope for humanity and saving the planet. Let’s get to it and while we’re at it lets UN-learn hate.
