There are seven sins in the world: Wealth without work, Pleasure without conscience, Knowledge without character, Commerce without morality, Science without humanity, Worship without sacrifice and politics without principle.
Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
Your beliefs become your thoughts. Your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions become your habits. Your habits become your values. Your values become your destiny.
Always aim at complete harmony of thought and word and deed. Always aim at purifying your thoughts and everything will be well.
A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.
There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.
Happiness is when what you think, what you say,
and what you do are in harmony.
Hate the sin, love the sinner.
If you don't find God in the next person you meet,
it is a waste of time looking for him further.
I believe in equality for everyone, except reporters and photographers.
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.
I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.
Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.
The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.
When I despair, I remember that all through history the ways of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants, and murderers, and for a time they can seem invincible, but in the end they always fall. Think of it always.
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.
What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy?
An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.
Freedom is not worth having if it does not connote freedom to err. It passes my comprehension how human beings, be they ever so experienced and able, can delight in depriving other human beings of that precious right.
I think it would be a good idea.
Mahatma Gandhi, when asked what he thought of Western civilization
"I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer your friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings. My wisdom flows from the Highest Source. I salute that Source in you. Let us work together for unity and love."
