Mahatma Gandhi quotes

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.

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

I look only to the good qualities of men. Not being faultless myself, I won't presume to probe into the faults of others.

The main purpose of life is to live rightly, think rightly, act rightly. The soul must languish when we give all our thought to the body.

Honest disagreement is often a good sign of progress.

I have also seen children successfully surmounting the effects of an evil inheritance. That is due to purity being an inherent attribute of the soul.

I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.

In a gentle way, you can shake the world.

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

I claim to be a simple individual liable to err like any other fellow mortal. I own, however, that I have humility enough to confess my errors and to retrace my steps.

Poverty is the worst form of violence.

What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea.

Justice that love gives is a surrender, justice that law gives is a punishment.

Each one prays to God according to his own light.

Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained.

The human voice can never reach the distance that is covered by the still small voice of conscience.

Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.

A weak man is just by accident. A strong but non-violent man is unjust by accident.

To believe in something, and not to live it, is dishonest.

Faith... must be enforced by reason... when faith becomes blind it dies.
