„… the opposite of love is not hate -- it's apathy. It's not giving a damn. If somebody hates me, they must "feel" something… or they couldn't possibly hate. Therefore, there's some way in which I can get to them.“

„Somewhere somebody must have some sense. Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness.“

—  Martin Luther King, Jr. American clergyman, activist, and leader in the American Civil Rights Movement 1929 - 1968
1950s, Loving Your Enemies (November 1957), Context: Somewhere somebody must have some sense. Men must see that force begets force, hate begets hate, toughness begets toughness. And it is all a descending spiral, ultimately ending in destruction for all and everybody. Somebody must have sense enough and morality enough to cut off the chain of hate and the chain of evil in the universe. And you do that by love.
