How hatred affects the soul

I well remember the event referenced here:
"Hate is a very big and very hungry thing with lots of sharp teeth, and it will eat up your whole heart and leave no room for love."

These words [were] spoken by a grieving father to his young daughter in the movie Amish Grace... This movie, based on the bestselling book, dramatizes the response of an Amish community in Pennsylvania when a local man killed five school girls and wounded five others. Shocked and grieving, their first act was to practice forgiveness.
I found the above on the front page of the website Spirituality and Practice which is, to my mind, one of the best spiritually focused sites going.
