To our most bitter opponents we say: "We shall match your capacity to
inflict suffering by our capacity to endure suffering. We shall meet
your physical force with soul force. Do to us what you will, and we
shall continue to love you. We cannot in all good conscience obey
your unjust laws because noncooperation with evil is as much a moral
obligation as is cooperation with good. Throw us in jail and we shall
still love you. Bomb our homes and threaten our children, and we
shall still love you. Send your hooded perpetrators of violence into
our community at the midnight hour and beat us and leave us half
dead, and we shall still love you. But be ye assured that we will
wear you down by our capacity to suffer. One day we shall win freedom
but not only for ourselves. We shall so appeal to your heart and
conscience that we shall win you in the process and our victory will
be a double victory."
- Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
