A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on america, crime, engineering, god, humanity, and war

What is a war criminal? Was not war itself a crime against God and humanity, and, therefore, were not all those who sanctioned, engineered, and conducted wars, war criminals? War criminals are not confined to the Axis Powers alone. Roosevelt and Churchill are no less war criminals than Hitler and Mussolini. . . . England, America and Russia have all of them got their hands dyed more or less red - not merely Germany and Japan.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on evil, learning, love, and sincerity

Must I do all the evil I can before I learn to shun it? Is it not enough to know the evil to shun it? If not, we should be sincere enough to admit that we love evil too well to give it up.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on despair, history, love, time, and truth

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall.  Think of it - always.

A Quote by "Mahatma" Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi on business, enemies, friendship, and religion

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.
