“[L]ove is the only force that can transform an enemy into a friend. We never get rid of an enemy by meeting hate with hate; we get rid of an enemy by getting rid of enmity. By its very nature, hate destroys and tears down; by its very nature, love creates and builds up. Love transforms with redemptive power.”
Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength to Love. Minneapolis, MN: Fortress Press, 1963/2010, page 48.
