Rather than write 'black woman living in Little Rock,' I made it a bird, made it symbolic, so that people could apply it to their particular problem."

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that. Hate multiplies hate, violence multiplies violence, and toughness multiplies toughness in a descending spiral of destruction...The chain reaction of evil - hate begetting hate, wars producing more wars - must be broken, or we shall be plunged into the dark abyss of annihilation.

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