Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate.

LOVE for One’s Fellow Man

Agape (/ˈæɡəp/[1] or /əˈɡɑːp/Classical Greek: ἀγάπη, agápēModern Greek: αγάπη IPA: [aˈɣapi]), often translated "unconditional love", is one of the Koine Greek words translated into English as "love", one which became particularly appropriated in Christian theology as the love of God or Christ for humankind. In the New Testament, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; the term necessarily extends to the love of one's fellow man.
