the blow stops here

There are some guys who can return good for evil…Every brave man will think so. He will not want to live by passing on the wrath. A hit B? B hit C? — we have not enough alphabet to cover the condition. A brave man will try to make the evil stop with him. He shall keep the blow. No man shall get it from him and that is a sublime ambition.

sublime ambition indeed. keep the blow. return evil with good. don’t pass on the wrath. is this humanly possible? even if it’s not, it feels good to try.
