Words & Wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi

Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.

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.

We must become the change we want to see.

Love is the law of our being.

I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.

One needs to be slow to form convictions, but once formed they must be defended against the heaviest odds.

Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.

Hate the sin, love the sinner.

An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.

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

My life is my Message - Mahatma Gandhi
