by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
“The meaning of love is not to be confused with some sentimental outpouring. Love is something much more than emotional bosh… An overflowing love which seeks nothing in return,[agape] is the love of God operating in the human heart… Love is the most durable power in the world. This creative force, so beautifully exemplified in the life of our Christ, is the most potent instrument available in mankind’s quest for peace and security… The great military leaders of the past have gone, and their empires have crumbled and burned to ashes. But the empire of Jesus, built solidly and majestically on the foundation of love, is still growing.”
