The Weapon of Love

Use only the weapon of love and let no man pull you so low as to hate him. Look at your oppressor hard enough to see in him something of God's image; yes, it might be just a spark, but if you work on him long enough, it can develop into a leaping flame.

-- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in
Paul's Letter to American Christians (1956)
