Martin Luther King Jr. printable quote 2- Corrected



"Are we seeking power for power's sake? Or are we seeking to make the world and our nation better places to live. If we seek the latter, violence can never provide the answer. The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you may murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. So it goes. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." 
From the Strength to Love speech
 
The above image is web sized and shown full size. The one below is 300 dpi and prints out at 8x10.5 inches, so on a sheet of US letter paper, it will have 1/4 inch margins. I hope you enjoy it.  Click on the image for the full sized version.




Edit:  The original quote that I used was the one below. But the first sentence was added by someone else to the original quote. I remembered the "Hate cannot drive out hate" part assumed the rest was correct.   

 "I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy. Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that." --Martin Luther King, Jr.
