A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on affection, trust, human nature, east, west, and humanity

I am not conscious of a single experience throughout my three months' stay in England and Europe that made me feel that after all East is East and West is West. On the contrary, I have been convinced more than ever that human nature is much the same, no matter under what clime it flourishes, and that if you approached people with trust and affection you would have ten-fold trust and thousand-fold affection returned to you.

Gandhi (1869 - 1948)
