The Hardest Task One Can Have

"The hardest task one can have is to continue to love his fellows despite all reasons he should not.

And the true sign of sanity and greatness is to so continue.

For the one who can achieve this, there is abundant hope.
A primary trap is to succumb to invitations to hate.
It requires real strength to love Man.  And to love him, despite all invitations to do otherwise, all provocations and all reasons why one should not."

These are excerpts from a brilliant and beautiful article entitled, "WHAT IS GREATNESS," by L. Ron Hubbard and it cam be found in a book that virtually saved my life:  A NEW SLANT ON LIFE.

Contact me and I'll gladly send you the entire essay.  I aspire to its message every day of my life.  And sometimes, with some people, it isn't always easy....
