Quotables: Gandhi

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

The greatness of Mahatma Gandhi is almost universally accepted.  This month’s quotables include a number of refrigerator magnet worthy quotes celebrating the power of peace and the wisdom inherent in morality.

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

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

“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 wond.  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.”

“Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary.”

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

“The future depends on what you do today.”

“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.”

“It is easy enough to be friendly to one’s friends. But to befriend the one who regards himself as your enemy is the quintessence of true religion. The other is mere business.”

“Whenever you are confronted with an opponent, conquer him with love.”

“I offer you peace. I offer you love. I offer you friendship. I see your beauty. I hear your need. I feel your feelings.”
