He was able to get rid of anything that wasn’t useful to him, and to only keep things that were gonna keep him alive and keep his mind intact. Hatred was just not gonna be useful. It would only eat him; he didn’t have any place for it.

    The more you keep, the more hatred in my heart more tired deadlock, basically throwing them away, suddenly themselves freely. Hatred as perfume, keep it fragrant, do not keep it freed, more serene. It really brings satisfaction to hatred in my heart for someone, but the quality is second to bind themselves in a tough thing could not be removed
