Martin Luther King Jr.
"Loving Your Enemies"
Nov. 17 1957
"One day as Napoleon came toward the end of his career
and looked back across the years—the great Napoleon that
at a very early age had all butconquered the world. He
was not stopped until he became, till he moved out to
the battle of Leipzig and then to Waterloo. But that
same Napoleon one day stood back and looked across the years,
and said: "Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have built
great empires. But upon what did they depend? They depended
upon force. But long ago Jesus started an empire that depended
on love, and even to this day millions will die for him."
