Radical Love vs Cycle of Hatred

“God knows it takes a radical lover to break the cycle of interpersonal hostility… Cycles of hostility must be stopped is there is ever going to be relational harmony in this world, and it will take radical, non-retaliatory, second mile lovers to stop it. Someone has to take a blow, insult or slap instead of returning it. Somebody has to absorb and injustice instead of inflicting another one on somebody else.”

Above passage is taken from the book Who You Are When No One’s Looking. When I read it, somehow it rang a bell in my mind as I heard similar line somewhere in Naruto series. Hehehe, can you guess where it is?

Naruto: "If you attack Konoha… I will have to fight you… so save up your hatred and take it all on me… I’m the only one who can take it! It’s the only thing I can do! I will shoulder your hatred and die with you!

Sasuke: … Who the h*** are you!!? Why do you care so much!!?

Naruto: Because…. we’re friends.

Do look forward to the review of Who You Are When No One’s Looking, ok? :D
