And Bin Laden, eh? Slightly surprised by some people's reactions.
one of my friends put forward this quote
"I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that"
— Martin Luther King Jr.
 can anyone find a source for that quote? It's apparently been doing the rounds and, geek that I am, I wanted to see where he'd said it. The 'hate multiplies hate' bit is easy to find, but I can't find a non-twitter reference to the first bit.
