No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.

PERSONAL IMPRESSIONS: In the 1990s, I spent time in Johannesburg and Cape Town with my mom. I was participating in the Harvard Business School International Alumni Conference and then we spent additional time exploring. A couple of good friends showed us around Jo’burg – giving us the “insider’s tour” – one taking us into the townships and the other to key business sites and wonderful restaurants.
