Quote: "Love . . . the only answer"
There is a simple yet profound statement from King he made at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in August 1967:
“…I have decided to stick with love, for I know that love is ultimately the only answer to mankind’s problems.”
There are many things which we promote as answers, but King is radical in his insistence that God given love be at the forefront of any attempt to fix problems – societal, personal, racial, economics. This was a part of a longer talk by king in which he was discussing the self-giving sacrificial love of Christ.
