Wasn't it Machiavelli who said "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer?" Empathy is sometimes a way of loving but always a way of becoming more accurate in predicting responses & behaviours.

May I suggest a further resources to learn more about empathy and compassion.
The Center for Building a Culture of Empathy
The Culture of Empathy website is the largest internet portal for resources and information about the values of empathy and compassion. It contains articles, conferences, definitions, experts, history, interviews,  videos, science and much more about empathy and compassion.

Also, we invite you to post a link to your article about empathy to our Empathy Center Facebook page.
