Quotes - Mahatma Gandhi

ॐ श्री गुरावे नमः !

Mahatma's few famous quotes

(Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi)
All the religions of the world, while they may differ in other respects, unitedly proclaim that nothing lives in this world but Truth.Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.


Breach of promise is a base surrender of truth.

Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.
Everyone who wills can hear the inner voice.

Each one has to find his peace from within. And peace to be real must be unaffected by outside circumstances.
First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.
God is, even though the whole world deny him. Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained.


It is within everyone.An error does not become truth by reason of multiplied propagation, nor does truth become error because nobody sees it.
I would heartily welcome the union of East and West provided it is not based on brute force.In a gentle way, you can shake the world.In matters of conscience, the law of the majority has no place.In prayer it is better to have a heart without words than words without a heart
It has always been a mystery to me how men can feel themselves honoured by the humiliation of their fellow beings.It is any day better to stand erect with a broken and bandaged head then to crawl on one's belly, in order to be able to save one's head.Love never claims, it ever gives. Love ever suffers, never resents never revenges itself.Man can never be a woman's equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her.
My religion is based on truth and non-violence. Truth is my God. Non-violence is the means of realising Him.
Non-violence requires a double faith, faith in God and also faith in man.
Peace is its own reward.
Poverty is the worst form of violence.

Prayer is a confession of one's own unworthiness and weakness.
Prayer is not an old woman's idle amusement. Properly understood and applied, it is the most potent instrument of action.
Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening.
The good man is the friend of all living things.The real ornament of woman is her character, her purity.The spirit of democracy is not a mechanical thing to be adjusted by abolition of forms. It requires change of heart.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.

Those who know how to think need no teachers.

Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.
Truth never damages a cause that is just.Truth stands, even if there be no public support. It is self-sustained.
We must become the change we want to see in the world.
Where love is, there God is also.Where there is love there is life.You can chain me, you can torture me, you can even destroy this body, but you will never imprison my mind.
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.
Mahatma Gandhi


ॐ नमः शिवाय!
