Mahatma Gandhi

The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong. - Mahatma Gandhi

You must be the change you wish to see in the world. - Mahatma Gandhi

Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love. – Mahatma Gandhi

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever. – Mahatma Gandhi

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent. – Mahatma Gandhi

Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man. – Mahatma Gandhi

All paths leading to God are equally good. - Mahatma Gandhi

Poverty is the worst form of violence. – Mahatma Gandhi

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy? - Mahatma Gandhi

Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. – Mahatma Gandhi

It is easy enough to be friendly to one's friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business. – Mahatma Gandhi

The only tyrant I accept in this world is the still voice within. - Mahatma Gandhi

It may be long before the law of love will be recognised in international affairs. The machineries of government stand between and hide the hearts of one people from those of another. - Mahatma Gandhi

As soon as we lose the moral basis, we cease to be religious. There is no such thing as religion over-riding morality. Man, for instance, cannot be untruthful, cruel or incontinent and claim to have God on his side. - Mahatma Gandhi

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. - Mahatma Gandhi

Truth never damages a cause that is just. - Mahatma Ghandi

Fear is not a disease of the body; fear kills the soul. – Mahatma Gandhi

They cannot take away our self-respect if we do not give it to them. – Mahatma Gandhi

Whenever I see an erring man, I say to myself I have also erred; when I see a lustful man I say to myself, so was I once; and in this way I feel kinship with everyone in the world and feel that I cannot be happy without the humblest of us being happy. – Mahatma Gandhi

An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody will see it. – Mahatma Gandhi

It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err. – Mahatma Gandhi

Anger and intolerance are the enemies of correct understanding. – Mahatma Gandhi

Love the sinner but hate the sin. – Mahatma Gandhi

All crime is a kind of disease and should be treated as such. – Mahatma Gandhi

No culture can live, if it attempts to be exclusive. – Mahatma Gandhi

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall -- think of it, always. – Mahatma Gandhi

It is better to be violent, if there is violence in our hearts, than to put on the cloak of nonviolence to cover impotence. – Mahatma Gandhi

The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. – Mahatma Gandhi

Satisfaction lies in the effort, not in the attainment, full effort is full victory. – Mahatma Gandhi
