Quotes of Gandhiji

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

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

You must be the change you want to see in the world. 

There is more to life than increasing its speed. 

When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it--always. 

You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.

Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.

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

The destructive Seven Blunders of the World that cause violence:
Wealth without work.
Pleasure without conscience.
Knowledge without character.
Commerce without morality.
Science without humanity.
Religion without sacrifice.
Politics without principle.

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

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

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

Imitation is the sincerest flattery. 

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.

- Mahathma Gandhi
