A description of the experience
Boethius – The Consolation of Philosophy
This is why among wise men there is no place at all left for hatred. For no one except the greatest of fools would hate good men.
And there is no reason at all for hating the bad.
For just as weakness is a disease of the body, so wickedness is a disease of the mind. And if this is so, since we think of people who are sick in body as deserving sympathy rather than hatred, much more so do they deserve pity rather than blame who suffer an evil more severe than any physical illness
