It’s been said that a disciple of Confucius asked him, “What would you think of a man who was loved by everybody in his village? Would you want to be that man?”
Confucius responded, “No I would not. It is not enough to be loved by everyone. One must be loved by the good people and hated by the bad people.”
This is my life motto, and recent circumstances have brought it back to mind. I thought others might profit from it as well.
