Known around the world as Mahatma Gandhi, this spiritual leader of India was born Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on October 2, 1869. He was assassinated on January 30th 1948. His philosophy was firmly founded upon ahimsa or total nonviolence. He helped India become independent and inspired movements for civil rights and freedom across the world. Gandhi swore to speak the truth and was a supreme example to others that they can do the same.
The following are quotes by Gandhi:
A coward is incapable of exhibiting love; it is the prerogative of the brave.
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
All truths, not merely ideas, but truthful faces, truthful pictures or songs, are highly beautiful.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind.
As long as you derive inner help and comfort from anything, keep it.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. It passes my comprehension how human beings, be they ever so experienced and able, can delight in depriving other human beings of that precious right.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
Hate the sin, love the sinner.
