Have we not come to such an impasse in the modern world that we must love our enemies-or else? The chain reaction of evil-hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars-must be broken, or else we shall be plunged into the abyss of annihilation.
Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend.
Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

We will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad people but for the appalling silence of the good people.
Hatred paralyzes life; love releases it. Hatred confuses life; love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life; love illuminates it.
We must use time creatively - and forever realize that the time is always to hope to do great things.
