Hatred is compared to an enemy. This internal enemy, this inner enemy, has no other function than causing us harm. It is our true enemy, our ultimate enemy. It has no other function than simply destroying us, both in the immediate term and in the long term.
14th Dalai Lama
from the book Healing Anger: The Power Of Patience From A Buddhist Perspective
translated by Thupten Jinpa
