Quote from Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,

"The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending
spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead
of diminishing evil, it multiplies it... Through violence you
may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact,
violence merely increases hate.... Returning violence for
violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a
night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out hate;
only love can do that."


Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (more quotes by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. or books by/about Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.)

(1929-1968) US civil rights leader
