Q: Should we love our enemies?
M: Well, what else can you do with him? (Laughter) That's a practical question. If you kill him, his wife might kill you, or his daughter or son. It will continue forever. So we'd better love our enemy. It's the best way to kill him! (Laughter) If you love your enemy, he or she becomes your friend. Then the enemy's gone for good. And you have more friends: from his family: his wife, his kids, his relatives and his friends as well. Make one friend and you have many friends. Make one enemy and you make many enemies. So we ¡¥lose business' if we hate the enemy.
