some enmity always remains.
How to make peace?
Wise souls keep their part of the contract
and don't make any demands on others.
People whose power is real fulfill their obligations;
people whose power is hollow insist on their claims.
The Way of heaven plays no favorites.
It stays with the good.
Lao Tzu, Tao te Ching.
