Those who do not harbor such thoughts still their hatred.

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world.

By non-hatred alone is hatred appeased. This is a law eternal.

 

There are those who do not realize that one day we all must die.

But those who do realize this settle their quarrels.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Udanavarga
