“It is, therefore, folly to rebel against enemies. The right course to pursue is to transmute enemies into friends, by the all-conquering power of divine love. As the Buddha teaches, the more there is of hatred from others, the more should there be of love from the hated. Until mankind practice such wisdom as that set forth in the Sermon on the Mount, they will, by returning hatred for hatred rather than by returning love for hatred, continue to be fettered to Ignorance, and incessantly sow and harvest hatred, revenge, unbrotherliness, and war.”
from a footnote by the books editor, W. Y. Evans-Wentz.
