No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
-Nelson Mandela in his biography
I like to think he’s right, although on some days I find it harder to believe he is. I believe both can be taught, I’m just not sure that either comes more naturally. The fact though, that he believes it, is amazing to me.
