You can look at a piece of art and it can evoke in you a feeling, or impression. But that is more about you than the art. Often those feelings hearken to a time or place in your life. Or, for whatever reason, attach to a particular emotion that belongs only to you, not the work of art.
People can be like art. Some people on the surface evoke strong feelings, or impressions. In fact we all probably form initial impressions based on the affect or presence of the person we are meeting.
But you should never venture to form real knowledge of people without understanding the strokes it took to paint their particular picture.
True love should never be formed based on the image presented.
Likewise, I believe, hate cannot happen when we truly venture to know someone.
