"Was it through reason that I arrived at the necessity of loving my neighbour and not throttling him?
I was told it as a child, and I joyfully believed it, because they told me what was in my soul.
And who discovered it? Not reason.
Reason discovered the struggle for existence and the law which demands that everyone who hinders the satisfaction of my desires should be throttled.
That is the conclusion of reason.
Reason could not discover love for the other, because it's unreasonable."
~from Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy~
