Heard this on my morning run and thought it worth repeating. The quote came from Andrew Young, an aide to Martin Luther King, interviewed along with his godson, Kabir Sehgal. by NPR’s Diane Rehm. Young was taking about how an organization loses its moral compass, and he said that Dr. King liked to say “If the soul is left in darkness, sins will be committed. The guilty one is not he who commits the sin but he who causes the darkness.”
The quote is King’s, but MLK was quoting the French author Victor Hugo. Still worth taking to heart.
