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.

- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Nonviolence is the answer

to the crucial political and

moral questions of our time;

the need for mankind to

overcome oppression and

violence without resorting to

oppression and violence.

Mankind must evolve for

all human conflict a method

which rejects revenge,

aggression, and retaliation.

The foundation of such a

method is love.

- Martin Luther King,

December 11, 1964
