  1. That’s a wonderful quote and it’s going up on my wall. Thanks for the reminder:

    “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” -Martin Luther King Jr

  2. Love your photo / image that goes along with the quote! I looked it up and found more:

    Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction….The chain reaction of evil–hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars–must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.

    Here’s another one – hard to believe this was just 50 years ago; I was 10 years old at the time:

    It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.

    Martin Luther King, Jr., Wall Street Journal, November 13, 1962.
