About This Quote
William Shakespeare said: “Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” In this quote, he captures the essence of love in all of its form. Love should be something that is freely given out as it makes the world a better place. When people love one another and do wrong to no one, the people of the world can rest easy. Unfortunately, is so rarely the case.
Instead, our world is loaded with competition where people only love themselves. They are bound by success and that success often comes by doing wrong to people. The idea is that someone else must fail if another person has to feel success.
Take sports, for instance. As one team wins, another loses. And, with the unfortunate rise of unsportsmanlike conduct, fans of winning teams are all too happy to shove their victories in the face of the fans of the losers.
The idea of us versus them has become the way of the world today.
