QUOTATION: Turning the Other Cheek

Why should we turn the other cheek? Because hate multiplies like a seed. If one preaches hate and violence to ten men in a row, and tells the first to strike the second, and the second to strike the third, the hatred will envelop all ten. The only way to stop this hate is for one man to turn his other cheek. Then the hatred ends. It is never passed on. Absorb violence for the sake of the Savior, who will absorb sin and die for it.

--Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen
