I prefer the path of love vs that of hate. That’s the goal at least. Plus, how you treat those you’re competing with demonstrates the kind of person that you are. Especially when it the position of strength.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but it rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is Love.
