A timely reminder

I had no time to hate, because
The grave would hinder me,
And life was not so ample I
Could finish enmity.

Nor had I time to love; but since
Some industry must be,
The little toil of love, I thought,
Was large enough for me.

~Emily Dickinson

The world seems so hate-filled lately. The news is full of accusations and phobic people, the internet is full of trolls, and people “unfriend” each other over online spats.

But who has time for that?

Life is short. There’s barely enough time to love anybody, let alone hate. Love is enough to keep anyone busy for a lifetime.
