“A Qualitative Change in Our Souls” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
from Nonviolence: The Only Road to Freedom
May 04, 1966

“I must continue by faith or it is too great a burden to bear and violence, even in self-defense, creates more problems than it solves. Only a refusal to hate or kill can put an end to the chain of violence in the world and lead us toward a community where men can live together without fear. Our goal is to create a beloved community and this will require a qualitative change in our souls as well as a quantitative change in our lives.”
