    Either way, will be stabbed if others have the intention to do so.

    Just be ourselves and make sure we don't "lose" ourselves in the process, we can't stop others from doing anything but we know what kind of person we want to be.

    Confucius said,
    "The best people live in the center of harmony.
    The worst people act contrary to the center of harmony.
    The best people live harmoniously,
    because they always maintain the center.
    The worst people act contrary to harmony,
    because they are not aware of the center."

    We are all social beings. We need to love and be loved. Alas, if only we can show this kind of love:

    "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres"
    May the emotion of Love spreads more sincerely among mankind.
    There is true love too which states:

    "When the individual realizes Truth and fulfills God's purpose for
    his life, he comes to embody universal love. He delights in the
    well-being of others and selflessly works for their benefit. Love
    or Compassion, being the core of Ultimate Reality, is expressed in
    the love of the saint who can rise above self-centered attachments
    and desires. It is true love, love that is totally committed to the
    welfare of the other. It is love that is universal, overcoming the
    ordinary tendency to self-centeredness or favoritism for one's own."
    - World Scripture

    ----------------------------------------------
    Can man find the ideal of love?
    Most probably not because such love requires
    the foundation of integrity, truthfulness, and
    unity with the Ultimate.
