A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on justice, nonviolence, and weapons

Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon . . . which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.

A Quote by Martin Luther King, Jr. on courage, evil, love, nonviolence, pacifism, power, study, violence, and world

My study of Gandhi convinced me that true pacifism is not nonresistance to evil, but nonviolent resistance to evil. Between the two positions, there is a world of difference. Gandhi resisted evil with as much vigor and power as the violent resister, but True pacifism is not unrealistic submission to evil power. It is rather a courageous confrontation of evil by the power of love. . . .
