    If you hate a person, you hate something in him that is part of yourself. What isn't part of ourselves doesn't disturb us.

    He who knows not and knows he knows not, he is simple—teach him;

    One of the last subjects that my father and I talked about in depth was the primacy of moments. We arrived on the thought that some moments are more important than others. When a man decides that he's going to get a woman pregnant the decision is made in an instant, but the repercussions are massive. Essentially to judge a life as being good or bad, righteous or evil, or whatever shade of in between, you would have to take the amount of decisions that they made and the effects that they left on the world and see what the balance was. By agreeing to this premise, one accepts that all of the importance of one's existence can be boiled down to a few seconds. And if a person were evil, in totality, they were only so for a few instants.
