Gandhi

A Revolutionary With a Difference: Gandhi

By

Gandhi, the pioneer of non-violence, believed in simplicity. His simple attire became a subject of great contemplation and ridicule in western nations. His compelling ideas braved death and continued to be a source of inspiration and emulation for great leaders like Martin Luther King, Jr., Cesar Chavez, and Nelson Mandela. Here are some famous words from Gandhi.

Action
An ounce of practice is worth more than tons of preaching.

Attitude
Be the change you want to see in the world.

Love
Whenever you are confronted with an opponent. Conquer him with love.

Culture
A nation's culture resides in the hearts and in the soul of its people.

Religion
A religion that takes no account of practical affairs and does not help to solve them is no religion.

Action
Action expresses priorities.

Freedom
Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

Happiness
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

Forgiveness
Hate the sin, love the sinner.

Indolence
Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy.

Will Power
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.

Character
The truest test of civilization, culture, and dignity is character, not clothing.

Democracy
Democracy is an impossible thing until the power is shared by all, but let not democracy degenerate into monocracy.

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

Attitude
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.

Non-violence
Non-violence is a weapon of the strong.

Religion
God has no religion.

Intolerance
Intolerance betrays want of faith in one's cause.

Sacrifice
A life of sacrifice is the pinnacle of art, and is full of true joy.

Poetry
The beauty of poetry is that the creation transcends the poet.
