For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:
a time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.
Love is often honored by those who hate what comes against it and sometimes peace is best honored by those who wage war.
"We certainly never hate our enemies so much as when we are running away from them." - GK Chesterton
Sometimes the most loving thing you can do for someone who is opposing you is to oppose them back.
