Should One Turn the Cheek?

In Christian conduct must one always turn the other cheek when struck by someone?
 

Christ himself did not literally "turn the other cheek" when he was slapped (John 18:22), nor did the apostle Paul when a similar thing happened to him (Acts 23:2-5). The phrase is simply a figure of speech which means not to answer violence with violence.
