Martin Luther King, Jr. Handwritten Signed Quote:
Scarce and special handwritten quote signed by Martin Luther King, Jr., on the importance and power of love. In bold ballpoint, King pens the following, ''Love is the greatest force in the universe. It is the heartbeat of the moral cosmos. He who loves is a participant in the being of God. / Best Wishes / Martin Luther King Jr.''. Card that accompanies the text is dated 13 May 1957, which precedes by a few months King's famous sermon, ''Loving Your Enemies'', delivered in November 1957. The notion of love without condition, extended to one's enemies as well as allies, is a theme that emanates throughout King's writing, and what he believed to be the cornerstone of nonviolent activism. Although King's sermons and writings often come back to the theme of love, this handwritten signed quote reflecting on it is extraordinarily rare. Card measures 5'' x 3'' with slight paperclip impression at top edge. Affixed by two small pieces of tape at upper left and lower right corners to a piece of cardboard measuring 9'' x 7'', which also bears a stamp from the Montgomery Improvement Association reading ''Pray for Peace''. Near fine condition. With University Archives COA.
