T-38 : Hate Hater

My journal jogger for today is:

"Is there any music that you hate?"

The short answer is, "No".

In fact, I can't think of a single thing that I "hate".  I'm fond of the concept that there's no room for hate in my life.  Wikipedia says:
"Hatred (or hate) is a deep and emotional extreme dislike that can be directed against individuals, entities, objects, or ideas."
Billy Crystal used to do a bit on Saturday Night Live where he one-upped his speaking partner then declared, "I hate when that happens".

Will Smith said:
"Throughout life people will make you mad, disrespect you and treat you bad. Let God deal with the things they do, cause hate in your heart will consume you too."
 Martin Luther King, Jr. said:
"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."
Confucius said:
"It is easy to hate and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get."
 Booker T. Washington said:
"I shall allow no man to belittle my soul by making me hate him."
 William Shakespeare said:
"In time we hate that which we often fear. "
And the Apostle John said:
"...perfect love casteth out fear” (1 John 4:18)"
I choose to strive to love in order to avoid fear and the eventuality that could become hate.  Don't you hate when people try to take the high road? ;)
