Capacity to Forgive

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Dexter Avenue Baptist Church Sermon, November 1957 Montgomery, Alabama

“We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.” 

Martin Luther King Jr.
