A Wise Man Said...

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that."

~ Martin Luther King Jr.


  1. Love this quote!!! Posted it on FB yesterday so once again we are on the same page - all us great minds think alike :^)

  2. Amen. Very well said, Dr. King, and kudos to you, Jen, for posting it. I feel the same way.

  3. I agree too. I feel like one of the few who doesn't rejoice in another's death. No matter how evil, let God judge. Thank you for posting this.
