Darkness Cannot Drive Out Darkness Only Light Can

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” (Martin Luther King, Jr.)

“It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” (Robert F. Kennedy).

“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.” ( Hafsat Abiola).

“If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner.” ( Nelson Mandela).

Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys peace and tranquility. It leads to confusion and conflicts. Differences will always be there. Why can’t we all live in peace?

    I love you words on this. I also adore your images at the top. “Let Peace Begin with Me” has always been one of my favorite songs (even when “Why am I such a Hot Mess Instead of Peaceful” can be my reality). 😉 Beautiful post.
