Martin Luther King Jr. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend. I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love.
There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies. There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love. I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear.
Man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it.
We must mark him now, if we have not done so before, as the most dangerous Negro of the future in this nation from the standpoint of communism, the Negro, and national security. Hate is just as injurious to the hater as it is to the hated. Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity.
Many of our inner conflicts are rooted in hate. Let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Another way that you love your enemy is this: When the opportunity presents itself for you to defeat your enemy, that is the time which you must not do it.
There will come a time, in many instances, when the person who hates you most, the person who has misused you most, the person who has gossiped about you most, the person who has spread false rumors about you most, there will come a time when you will have an opportunity to defeat that person.
It might be in terms of a recommendation for a job; it might be in terms of helping that person to make some move in life. That is the meaning of love. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.Martin Luther King Jr. is a hero to me because he spoke his mind.
