The power of Gandhi’s words – despite him apparently having feet of clay, at times, like us – can still inspire us to change the world by changing ourselves.
Here are some of his most famous quotes:
#1: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
#2: “The greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane.”
#3: “In a gentle way, you can shake the world.”
#4: “Change yourself – you are in control.”
#5: “I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”
#6: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
#7: “Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.”
#8: “We need not wait to see what others do.”
#9: “A ‘No’ uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a ‘Yes’ merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.”
#10: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
#11: “To call woman the weaker sex is a libel; it is man’s injustice to woman.”
#12: “Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
#13: “Love is the strongest force the world possesses.”
#14: “Nonviolence is a weapon of the strong.”
#15: “A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
