In the book Love and Will, the psychologist Rollo May said:
Hate is not the opposite of love; indifference is.
How true. If there's hate for something, there's still some emotional attachment.
For example, I love the National Football League, but I don't hate soccer. In fact, I'm indifferent to it.
If love is a feeling of Live Forever, hate is a feeling of Die Now -- No, Die Yesterday.
