Only Love Can Drive Out Hate

Lenten Reading for Wednesday, March 20, 2013:

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. … Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot rive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
