Wise Encouragement for Current Political Times

  Mahatma Gandhi’s spirit left his earthly body in 1948. His wisdom was recorded for our benefit:

Man becomes great exactly in the degree in which he works for the welfare of his fellow-men.

***

Capital as such is not evil; it is its wrong use that is evil.

Capital in some form or other will always be needed.

***

Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.

***

Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?

***

If I had no sense of humor, I would long ago have committed suicide.

***

If patience is worth anything, it must endure to the end of time.

And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.

***

A small body of determined spirits fired by an unquenchable faith

in their mission

can alter the course of history.

***

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

 

***

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 greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

***

 To deprive a man of his natural liberty and to deny to him the ordinary amenities of life is worse then starving the body; it is starvation of the soul, the dweller in the body.

***

You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body,

but you will never imprison my mind.

***

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

***

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. 

 ~ Gandhi
