Mahatma Gandhi quotes to light your heart
If we are to teach real peace in this world, and if we are to carry on a real war against war, we shall have to begin with the children.
"Almost anything you do seems insignificant. It is very important that you do it. You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.
My life is my message.
A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.
There is more to life than increasing its speed.
Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
As human beings, our
greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves.
Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.
Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
Faith is not something to grasp, it is a state to grow into. Faith... must be enforced by reason... when faith becomes blind it dies.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.
God, as Truth, has been for me a treasure beyond price. May He be so to every one of us.
I am prepared to die, but there is no cause for which I am prepared to kill.
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.
I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
Namaste, pranams Gandhi-ji. You are such an inspiration to so many, a beautiful example of rising to the Truth in every moment. Om shanti. ~laura H
