"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."
– Strength To Love, Martin Luther King Jr.

"Freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed."
"I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word."
