I am as baffled by our ability to love as our ability to hate, and especially baffled by people who seem to love hating. How is that possible?
I no longer have the energy for hate. It brings me no pleasure, no relief, only tension, pain, anger.
In the end, it is easier to love. It is always easier to love.
That is what’s baffling about love: how did it ever seem otherwise?
