Sup y’all! Have a question for ya - what them feelings be prevailin over you most hate or love? Tnx
Sorry, was the question which feelings I most hate and love respectively at the moment on my mind or was it whether I have more positive or negative feelings or was it perhaps a question concerning feelings prevailing “over”, as in above me?
Or was the question something completely else? The subject line says Love vs hate. Is that to be compared to red vs gold or perhaps bananas vs cucumbers?
On another note, a popular saying is this: “The opposite of love is not hate, but indifference”
I say old chap!
I`ve been wondering Why exactly are you asking the question?

Actually, no wink needed on that one. I think the quote to be quite accurate. It’s from Elie Weisel, whom I quoted often in my dissertation. Here’s the full quote: “The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.”
He pulls this idea from an earlier quote by Rollo, a Norman noble called Rollo from around the 9th or 10th century: “Hate is not the opposite of love, apathy is.”
Okay, so there is the lesson for today. I’m with rat and Mange (a rat with mange?), since I can’t really make out the actual topic here.
Though the thickness of rat’s accent makes it hard to know what he’s actually saying.
Ahh, Alex, Mon Amour, Ma Petite Fleur,
I think the rodent want
s to know why Bablorub is asking which of the emotions: Love or Hate, do you experience, more than the other, at this present period in your life. Pretty much the kind of question our Guru bobueland might ask, but in whos motives, none of us would have reservations.
Ah, thank you Monsieur D, now I understand. My first inclination is to say ‘who wants to know??’ which is, I think, essentially what the rat was trying to ask in a different way. So the question stands…
