Hate is a Cancer

A week after the holiday to remember the philosophy and teachings of Dr. King, let us strive to not hate.

Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true.

Martin Luther King, Jr., Strength To Love, 1963.


  1. And as Brian Ferry sang, '... love is the drug...' I do think that it has the power to cure the cancer of hate.

  2. The same could be said for intense regret & self-condemnation.
