People think we had a love-hate relationship. Well, I did not love him, nor did I hate him. We had mutual respect for each other, even as we both planned each other's murder.
Murder is born of love, and love attains the greatest intensity in murder.
THIS new Diana makes weak men her prey,
And, making captive, still would fain pursue,
And still would keep, and still would drive away,—
So day by day,
Hate, hunt, to murder, and yet love them too;
Ah, dear Diana!
William Shakespeare (Twelfth Night)
Antonio: If you will not murder me for my love, let me be your servant.
