My friend, it is impossible to love people as they are. And yet, it should be done. And therefore do good for them, keeping your feelings restrained, clutching your nose and closing your eyes (the latter is necessary). Endure their evil, don’t be angry at them if possible, bearing in mind that “you are a human as well”. Of course, you are to be strict with them, if it is given to you to be just a little smarter than the middle. People by nature are low and love to love out of fear… Should you love life itself more than the sense of it? – Certainly, love is before logic.
