without two meals a day? To them God can only appear as bread and butter.

To revile one another's religion, to make reckless statements, to utter untruth, to break the
head of innocent men, to desecrate temples or mosques, is a denial of God.

Every one of my failures has been a stepping-stone.
Mahatma Gandhi
