Happy Birthday Dr. King

Today we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King's Birthday. His actual birthday is the same as mine, January 15th but someone decided to make a banker's holiday out of it and so it is celebrated on Mondays following his birthday. 
When you Google quotes by Dr. King, you will get tons of results. He said some remarkable things in his lifetime.
The most famous one is his "I have a dream" speech, but the one that speaks to me is the one below.

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.
