HATRED IS CORROSIVE




“For hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life-and-death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity. I hope therefore … to counter the hostility of the regime with the best of intentions, and defuse hate with love.”



Liu Xiaobo, a Chinese literature professor, essayist, and dissident, awarded the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize.
