Which is more powerful, love or hate?

It could be love, for love is strong; it could be hate, for hate is also strong. Love creates, hate destroys. Love can create friends. Hate destroys their friendship. I think hate is more powerful. Hate can change people. One who loves another can then change and loathe whom they had once loved. Love can be extreme, but hate is even more extreme. Hate is a war creator. Love can be a hate creator. So, basically, love is hate’s servant. Love allows hate to come. Think of it as a tapestry. Hatred can tear it, and love can mend it, but the tapestry can get torn again. Hate is more powerful.
