Agreeing and disagreeing

Here's something I found on the Spirituality and Practice site:

We must love them both —
Those whose opinions we share,
Those whose opinions we don't share.
They've both labored in the search for Truth
and have both helped us in finding it. —

-- Thomas Aquinas quoted in Imagining the Sacred by Vernon Ruland

To Practice This Thought: Make a list of people you agree and disagree with and then contemplate it with love.
That's actually a very intriguing practice. Hard but thought provoking.
