Toward our friends and those we love run the waters of attachment, toward our enemies burns the fire of anger; in the obscurity of ignorance, we lose sight of what should be abandoned and what should be practiced. Therefore renunciation of one’s country and home is a practice of the Bodhisattva [so as to practise equanimous compassion for all].

~ #2 of the 37 Bodhisattva Practices (Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo)
