Keith, nice post.  I believe your quote is from Buddha rather
than Blavaksky.  Another way to look at friends and enemies
is through the Jungian idea of psychic projection.  We project
"friends" and "enemies" onto others based on how we think
that they treat us.  They are really just people, neither friends
nor enemies.  People do good and bad things, but are
themselves just people, neither good nor bad.

It will become easier, but probably never easy.  But we have to
keep trying.
