I like to receive in my emails among emails from my friends also emails that are thought provoking. That make me think and contimplate. I received such a email today and it made me wonder if we used the thought of Martin Luther King this world would be a lot better to live in. This is what saying he is known for saying and I agree with him. What about you? Always Hatred paralyzes life, love releases it. Hatred confuses life, love harmonizes it. Hatred darkens life, love illumines it. " — Martin Luther King No matter how compelling the circumstances, or how justified the reasons, love is always the better choice. Always. May hatred always be the choice you refuse to make.

Sunshinelady, one could almost see the love you send out just by perpetuating this message. Now if we all could perpetuate this love.

I love all people and I think there is good in all. Given half the chance I think that people will do the right thing. I think that a lot of times what happens is a person doesn't know how to love because of the invironment they grew up in.

not just the environment, but perhaps misguided idealogical teachings.

mizrae I have to agree with you there. I think there is a lot of things that surround weather a person can love or not. I was surrounded by love when I was growing up at home and a lot of the things that mom and dad believed I have found that I follow today.

Hello Dear Friend, I believe this quote with all my heart. This world could be such a beautiful place if people followed Martin Luther Kings quote here and held it close to their heart.

This is absolutely beautiful and I totally agree with it. If people chose to love this world would be a much, much better place. God is love and there is just nobody like him in this world. I had never heard this one from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Thank you so much for sharing it with us. It is truly inspiring.

If people lived as he did the world would be a different place. I always have believed that one person can make a difference and he did. He was a great man and this nation lost a person who truly did not think of himself but for the people.
