Ashanti African proverb

There is no medicine to cure hatred is the Chic African Culture's favorite proverb. Anger leads to hate which leads to misery, which leads to hate which leads to anger; it is a never-ending cycle of negativity. Only when you insert love into the cycle it will become clear that love is stronger than hate. Hate destroys but love builds.
