realization:
my drinking the poison will not kill him, it will kill me.
(hating him only hurts me.)

resolution:
i shall not drink the poison.
(i will not allow myself to be consumed by hate.)

Yes, you're right. I think I know who this is too. Hm, yesterday I was reading some quotes and I came across this Confucian quote. It doesn't totally relate, but I think the idea is right: When you set off on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.

Now, you have not set off on any journey of revenge, obviously... But I think that it's the same with feelings of hate or anger. What we think is inevitably what we become.

Don't let him have that power over you.

I love you. R.
