Martin Luther King

"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." -- Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.

The West Wing -- Bartlet recites the following in the Episode The Dogs Of War: 'The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral. Returning violence with violence only multiplies violence adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.'" "Dr. King."
