It's tragic that in today's day and age hate is so grossly undervalued. If hate truly is love reflected in the black mirror, we should realize that it's an emotion just as valid, just and strong and should require the same tests of the soul that true love demands. After all, what is love but hate running backwards, and what would love be without its opposite, hate?
I have to credit a painter, Mark Ryden, for the picture above.
I have to credit the good people at The Haters Club on Goodreads.com for the first two sentences in the last paragraph of this post.
