Reader comments about this quote:
I can neither create, nor can I control others emotions - justly or unjustly. AND, I give no credence to others hate. As to the comment, 5 stars +, that each individual should act continually with in the bounds of "just(ice)". Another comment comes to mind; Acting justly, "I am grateful for the friends I have and the enemies I've made."

    Mike, I like both the original quote and yours but would challenge your initial statement. You absolutely can create and control another's emotions if that person is psychologically vulnerable or immature. That you choose not to use that capability is a testament to your character.
     -- Robin, Spokane     
    Robin, given your qualifiers and the current state affairs (propaganda in schools, media, etc. - brain washing, making it mandatory for helots, special needs / weak minded and otherwise slaves, to obey) your broad stroke is far too accurate, far too often. Beyond, do unto others as I would have them do unto me, I am progressing in "Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;". In saying that, I am not responsible morally, at law or justice for any third party hate generation.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    Robin, a P.S. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land has produced a majority of unjust, psychologically vulnerable and immature patrons. I know your reference was to children and a very small number of ill, what are your thoughts to the masses?
