Such power comes from those nine words. Think about what Shakespeare’s quote truly means. He had a way with words, and those words create a perfect model of what you and I should aspire to attain. This has become one of my absolute favorite quotes, and one I fell in love with the moment I heard it. It is one thing to hear the words of Shakespeare, but it is another to apply the words of Shakespeare.
Simple as it seems, much effort must be exerted to achieve such a status. We must actively be the love and light in the world. Through this, loving all becomes possible, person by person. In a world filled with hate, it is easy to fall into the same worldly pattern. It should be our mission to be the difference and dividing line between love and hate. Once absolute love is reached, our world would be better off, and love would be a reckoning force.
Trust a few.
In an untrusting society, it would be a self-deficit to blindly trust every person that crosses our path. As humans, we have a desire for companionship, and to have companionship, it means to wholeheartedly trust a meticulous and select few. Every person deserves to have a core group of people to hold the deepest of secrets and share in the happiest of times. Trusting is subjective, so place it wisely.
Do wrong to none.
By doing wrong to none, it will further enable the chances of loving all. No longer holding a grudge or thinking negative thoughts towards a person could be monumental. Being nice and genuinely happy, instead of being fake and mad at the world is something that would be a complete one-eighty from the usual ways of societal interaction.
This quote comes full-circle because for the first to happen, the latter must be fulfilled. This chain cannot be broken, or it would ruin the entire path to an ideal society. We have the power to make the days brighter and the society stronger by adapting to the ideology of this trinity of traits.
