By Martin Luther King, Jr.
Hate is too great a burden to bear. You may be able to speak with the tongues of men and angels. You may have the eloquence of articulate speech; but if you have not love, it means nothing.
You may have the gift of prophecy. You may have the gift of scientific prediction and understand the behavior of molecules. You may break into the storehouse of nature and bring forth many new insights. You may ascend to the heights of academic achievement so that you have all knowledge. You may boast of your great institutions of learning and the boundless extent of your degrees.
If you have not love, all of these mean nothing.
How can you share more love?
The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an American civil rights leader and orator.
