Mahatma Gandhi

Hinduism is not an exclusive religion. In it, there is room for the worship of all the prophets of

all religions.
Mahatma Gandhi

I am "anti-all-wars."
Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi

Missionaries in India are laboring under a double fallacy: that what they think best for another
person is really so; and that what they regard as the best for themselves is the best for the
whole world. I am pleading for a little humility.
Mahatma Gandhi

True happiness is impossible without true health, and true health is impossible without a rigid
control of the palate.
Mahatma Gandhi

Non-violence is the law of our species as violence is the law of the brute.
Mahatma Gandhi

The example of a few true men or women if they have fully imbibed the spirit of non-violence
is bound to infect the whole mass in the end.
Mahatma Gandhi

Our passion for exercise should become so strong that we could not bring ourselves to
dispense with it on any account. We hardly realize how weak and futile is our mental work
when unaccompanied by hard physical exercise.
Mahatma Gandhi

The very purpose of marriage is restraint and sublimation of the sexual passion. If there
is any other purpose, marriage is no consecration.
Mahatma Gandhi

Put your talents in the service of the country instead of converting them into pounds,
shillings, and pence.

Non-cooperation is not a passive state, it is an intensely active state - more active than
physical resistance or violence. Passive resistance is a misnomer.

enslave him. This is the key to self- and home-rule.
Mahatma Gandhi

Look at the history of the British Empire and the British nation; freedom-loving as it is, it will
not be party to give freedom to a people who will not take it themselves.
Mahatma Gandhi

One never can achieve anything lasting in this world by being irresolute.
Mahatma Gandhi
